Huawei celebrates Valentine’s Day with gift sales across the wearables range – FreeBuds 3 and select Watch GT 2 models

Huawei has today announced the FreeBuds 3 — the world’s first open-fit, active noise cancellation Bluetooth earphones — are now available in a limited-edition Valentine Red version, just in time for those looking for the perfect gift. This comes as Huawei announces exclusive new deals on gifts, including the full FreeBuds 3 range and select Watch GT 2 Sport models.

Combining superior sound quality, intelligent noise cancellation and up to four-hours music playback per charge, the FreeBuds 3 are easy to fall in love with. Whether used for music, podcasts or calling someone special, the FreeBuds 3 perform well, even in noisy environments.
