OnePlus Watch Summary
The OnePlus Watch is that the long-rumored smartwatch that isn’t just real – it’s a refined wearable that appears love it could rank up with the highest smartwatches of the day.
‘Look’ being the operative word – for this hands-on with the smartwatch; we’ll only be talking about the smartwatch’s appearance.
The OnePlus Watch looks almost like other top-line smartwatches, just like the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, with a circular design and two function buttons on the right side. The chrome steel metal watch body features a glossy finish, a pleasant change from the matte finishes, and colored aluminum that adorn most of today’s watches.
It’s also a reasonably hefty smartwatch, with a 46mm width and density that creates it too far on the massive side for anyone with slimmer wrists or who prefers smaller watch faces. But the wearable will suit those that like their watches dense, with a design and material finish that felt more polished than your average smart device.
The rubber-like watch band may be an excellent material with rivulets running down the edges, a pleasant touch compared to the flat wristbands in other smartphones, though its thickness can mean some skin pinching when tucking the band back under itself until you’ve worn it in.
In summary, the watch looks higher quality than other smartwatches at its price, which is half that of comparable Apple Watches and Samsung Galaxy Watches.
As to how its fitness, performance, battery, software, and overall user experience chalks up to each other smartphones out there – you’ll need to wait alongside us until our full review goes live.

OnePlus Watch design
At a look, you would possibly think you’re watching the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 once you first see the OnePlus Watch. Both share the round face and rubber strap that tucks into itself and two buttons on the right-hand side. But the OnePlus Watch appears less sporty and more sophisticated than Samsung’s fitness-centered smartwatch, with a bold AMOLED touchscreen and 46-millimeter chrome steel case.
The OnePlus Watch’s large display suits the larger overall build of the smartwatch. It is best for wrists more extensive than mine; however, it feels lightweight and almost as slim as my Apple Watch against my wrist. The pair of navigational buttons on the right side of the case sit pretty flush, too.
OnePlus Watch users have quite 50 watch faces to settle on from. Though sturdy out of the box, the included fluoroelastomer bands are also interchangeable, with support for third-party styles to customize the general look of the watch.
The OnePlus Watch is rated for five ATM water resistance as for durability, which suggests it can withstand wear up to 164 feet.
OnePlus Watch features
The OnePlus Watch supports various health monitoring features, including 110 workout modes and 15 professional fitness modes. It also packs a step counter, accelerometer, blood oxygen sensor, and continuous pulse monitor. It tracks your sleep and even sends you breath and stand notifications, too.
When you’re on the choose workouts, you’ll mention 500 songs with you because of the watch’s built-in storage. The OnePlus Watch also has onboard GPS, so it can track your location and route your run or walk path, even once you leave your phone behind.
As for smartwatch features, OnePlus’s proprietary smartwatch OS allows third-party app downloads via Google Play. When paired to your Android phone (Android 6.5 or newer,) the OnePlus Watch are often wont to answer text messages or answer phone calls. The OnePlus Watch isn’t compatible with iPhones at this point.
I’ll get to put these features to the test as I spend longer with the OnePlus Watch.
OnePlus Watch battery life
OnePlus estimates that its smartwatch’s battery life lasts one week on one charge. That’s an extended battery life than the Apple Watch and Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, which last up to 18 hours and a couple of days, respectively.
When it must charge, the OnePlus Watch can do “all-day” power in only 5 minutes of charging because of Warp Charge, while 20 minutes of charging is all you’ll require for a week’s violence. Like the fitness tracking and performance features, I’ll get to put these claims to the test, though. Having tested the fast-charging features of OnePlus’ latest phones, we will certainly confirm that those devices live up to OnePlus’ charging promises at any rate.
OnePlus Watch outlook
Entering a saturated smartwatch market, the OnePlus Watch will deliver on everything it promises then. the worth is enticing, but as a smartwatch designed to enrich a competitive line of smartphones, the OnePlus Watch should bring a seamless experience that does not make users envious of the Galaxy Watch 3, Galaxy Watch Active 2, or any of Fitbit smartwatches.
The OnePlus Watch’s fitness tracking and battery life performance will have tons to try to to with the corporate finding success with its first smartwatch. I will be wearing it for the nonce to ascertain if it lives up to all or any of the claims. Out of the box, the planning and feel impress, but there’s more to a smartwatch than attractiveness.

The OnePlus Band is among the few fitness bands within the market to supply SpO2 tracking. If you’re trying to find a wearable precisely to trace this, the OnePlus Band does it quite well. I also found it good at sleep and pulse tracking, but not such a lot when it involves step and distance tracking. For those on iOS, you would possibly need to wait a touch longer. If you’re trying to find a fitness band primarily to trace the number of steps, you’re taking and therefore the distance you cover, the Mi Band 5 would be a far better pick at roughly an equivalent price.
