OnePlus finally unveiled its first wearable tech. This Chinese manufacturer might be the most outdated company to have its own watch brand since Apple, Samsung, and other smartphone developers already sell their own wearable devices.
Although it might be a little bit late, the latest OnePlus Watch could still prove that it can compete with Apple and Samsung’s watches as it enters the wearables market. This innovation looks like a high-end advanced digital watch in both looks and features, but it will still be cheaper compared to Apple Watch and Samsung Galaxy Watch flagships since it is expected to cost around $159 or £149.
OnePlus Watch offers new advanced features and a sleek design that will surely attract a huge number of consumers once it is available for purchase. If you want to have more ideas about this new wearable device, here are its new features.
OnePlus Watch’s design
The latest OnePlus Watch has the same design as the Galaxy Watch Active, which is Samsung’s sports watch that costs $250. At first glance, this new wearable device has a round watch face, a couple of buttons on the side of its stainless steel frame, and an AMOLED touchscreen. On the other hand, this gadget is only available in a 46mm case with interchangeable watch bands that can be swapped out for third-party alternatives.
Fitness and health features
When it comes to fitness and health features, the OnePlus Watch also offers functions for basic fitness tracking. It has more than 110 different workout types, giving you more options. This new wearable device also has a feature that automatically logs your exercises, such as jogging and running, regardless of whether or not you have your smartphone with you.
On the other hand, the manufacturer’s latest smartwatch also has a built-in GPS and a 5ATM IP68 rating. These two features will make it safer to use for swimming or doing other water activities.
The latest smartwatch can last more than 48 hours of regular use. This means that you can use it for longer periods compared to Apple Watch and Samsung Galaxy Watch 3. Its battery also charges fast since you can have 24-hour battery power in just 5 minutes of charging.
Just like other wearable devices, the company’s latest smartwatch also offers the basic features that users need. These include a display, respond to notifications, phone calls, music streaming, and serves as a remote to control your smartphone and TV app. However, the company said that it doesn’t support Spotify or any other music app at the moment. Instead, it comes with 2GB of internal storage for music. This means that you can download more than 500 songs, which you can listen to on the go when paired with Bluetooth earbuds. On the other hand, it’s only compatible with OnePlus and other Android phones for now, but the company says iOS support will come in time.
