OnePlus has finally launched its first smartwatch, the OnePlus Watch, which has been launched alongside the OnePlus 9 series smartphones including the OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and the OnePlus 9R. The OnePlus Watch comes with a 46mm circular dial and comes with a curved display. The OnePlus Watch comes with a minimal design, with just two buttons and has been launched in two colour options – silver and black, alongside a cobalt limited edition, which is made out of a cobalt alloy. During the launch, OnePlus said that the special cobalt edition is made of material that is so difficult to work with, that about 50 percent of the smartwatches get rejected. However, the 50 percent that do come out of the factory, would look the part. The limited edition OnePlus Watch uses sapphire glass on the dial. The smartwatch is priced at Rs 16,999 for the standard edition in India. It is not known when the OnePlus Watch will go on sale in India. There is also no word on the OnePlus Watch Special Cobalt Edition’s price and availability yet.
The watch has a 1.39-inch display with a 326ppi pixel density. OnePlus has also designed 50 watch faces and there is an option for users to take a photo from their phone and personalise a Watch face for themselves. The OnePlus Watch also has detachable straps, allowing users to put third-party straps on their new smartwatch. In terms of features, the OnePlus Watch comes with many sensors including a heart rate sensor, Blood Oxygen Sensor, Acceleration sensor, Gyroscope, Geomagnetic sensor, Air Pressure sensor, and GPS. Further, the OnePlus Watch has more than 110 workout modes. The OnePlus Watch also allows users to check messages, take calls, and more even when their hands are full. The smartwatch can also seamlessly connect to the OnePlus TV and act as a remote to the OnePlus TV. If a OnePlus Watch is connected to a OnePlus TV and a user gets a call, the TV will automatically lower the volume. If a user falls asleep while watching TV, the OnePlus Watch will turn off the OnePlus TV automatically after 30 minutes of the user falling asleep – these features will come to the OnePlus Watch in the coming days, the company said.
In terms of battery, the OnePlus Watch is claimed to last up to two week on regular usage and a week’s battery life for heavy users. The OnePlus Watch can charge for one week of usage in just 20 minutes, the company claims.
