OnePlus Smartwatch Price, Features, Release Date and More

OnePlus is a Chinese electronics manufacturer founded by Pete Lau and Carl Pei in December 2013 has become the talk of technological conventions since 2018. They are the child company of Oppo as in Oppo electronics not to be confused with Oppo Mobile and was found with the mindset to design a smartphone that would have high-end components with a lower price than other phones in its class, making their brand slogan “Never Settle” believing that users would not go for the lower-quality devices produced by other companies. Former Oppo vice-president and co-founder of OnePlus Pete Lau said that they will never be different just for the sake of being different rather they will have to focus on improving the actual user experience in day-to-day use by emphasizing its focus on high-quality products with simplistic, user-friendly designs. They launched their first device OnePlus One on 23 April 2014 trying to capture the market from the Google Nexus Series and being partially successful. But in 2018 after launching the OnePlus 6 is what put them on the map. Since then OnePlus has become one of the major flagship phone manufacturers and has dabbled in other peripherals as well such as wireless earphones, earbuds, fitness bands, and now even in smartwatches. 

OnePlus Smartwatch Price, Features, and Availability

The OnePlus Watch

OnePlus Smartwatch PriceMost smartwatches come in two dial shapes, either a square or a circle. OnePlus went with the circular design as the square dial display is more popular because of the Apple watch. It comes with very thin bezels and a 2.5D curved glass on top of the display giving it a clean look with two buttons on the right side.OnePlus Watch in India is one of the best in its class. With a 1.39 inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 454×454 and a touch response of 326 PPI, it is unrivaled at this price range. It has a 316L stainless steel body with dimensions of 46.4mm x 46.4mm x 10.9mm excluding protrusions. It comes with several different kinds of sensors such as acceleration sensor, air pressure sensor, etc. It comes with a 402mAh battery providing it a battery life of 14 days with normal usage, 5 days with sleep blood oxygen monitoring turned on, and 25 hours of continuous exercise with GPS. It comes with a 2 Pogo pin charger capable of charging the battery for a battery life of 7 days in just 20 minutes making it capable of fast charging as in all other OnePlus devices. It has IP68 water-resistant certification and 5ATM for depth. The smartwatch has also inbuilt support for speakers and a microphone taking hands-free calling to the next level. The speaker volume is more than enough for a smartwatch but when the microphone is used it may sound like you are talking from a distance. The 4 GB onboard memory makes storage of songs and personalization that much easy thus allowing you to pair it with other wireless earphones giving you the option to leave behind your phone while going for a run. It was speculated before the launch that it will run on a Snapdragon Wear 4100 processor and have Google’s WearOS but instead, it runs a custom Real-Time Operating System or RTOS with a combination of ST32, Apollo 3, and Cypress chips as its processors handling driving of the display, low power usage, and communications respectively. As common to all OnePlus smart devices it comes with a very simple UI making it easy to access all of the features. The OnePlus watch is also capable of tracking workouts, heart rate, stress, SpO2, and sleep as well. If you want Apple to watch an alternative then this is the best android watch you can have. The price is quite high for an Indian user but still, if you will spend that much then it will be worth your money for sure.

Sadly enough the OnePlus Watch does not run WearOS thus blocking users out from Google’s ecosystem and a large collection of apps. This smartwatch was among the highly anticipated products of this year but it turned all of us down since the functionality is limited and even sometimes restricted when paired with smartphone devices other than OnePlus devices. According to us, it works as more of a smart notifier rather than a smartwatch. Even though they have to be given credit for good battery life, SpO2 tracking, and accurate sleep tracking but their step tracking and heart rate during workouts were pretty inconsistent. As previously said the OnePlus watch does not exactly have a competitor at its price range but if you are looking to buy a smartwatch for fitness tracking then the Amazfit GTR 2e is great and it’s even priced lower at Rs. 9,999 or if you wanna go for a watch that runs Google WearOS then the Oppo Watch is the one to look for price at Rs. 19,990 which you should go for if you are planning to go for the OnePlus Watch Cobalt limited edition. Hope this guide was useful and we helped you reach a decision and as always don’t forget to comment if u think we missed something or anything needs to be changed.
