The OnePlus Watch, as it is called, has all typical smartwatch functionalities, plus its onboard 4 GB storage lets you store your favorite tunes and use it as a standalone music player when paired to a pair of true wireless earbuds, paired via Bluetooth 5.0. It has over 110 sports modes, including swimming and wait for it… parkour.
OnePlus’ first smart timepiece has quite some presence with its beautifully curved 46 mm 316L stainless steel case which is paired to a fluoroelastomer strap. The combination tips the scales at a fairly weighty 76g.
Key hardware features include a 1.39-inch round AMOLED display with 454 x 454 pixels (326 ppi), optical heart rate sensor, built-in speaker and microphone.
It is equipped with a 402 mAh battery good for up to 14 days of use, but it goes to just 5 days max if you use to for sleep blood oxygen monitoring, which the watch can do. But still beats having to charge it every day.
You may have to charge it daily or in a couple of days, though, if it is on continuous exercise with GPS. But fret not because, charging will be painless – thanks to Warp Charge which will get you a day use with just minutes of charging, or charge it for 20 and get up to 7 days of battery life.
Some other highlights include sleep monitor, stress tracking function that detects heart rate variability (HRV) via fluctuations, built-in breathing training, 5 ATM + IP68 water resistance, built GPS (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou), and a suite of sensors, including accelerometer, gyroscope, geomagnetic sensor, ambient light sensor, air pressure sensor, capacitance sensor, and of course, optical heart rate and blood oxygen sensor.
Open sale of the OnePlus Watch will start on April 14 at 11AM EDT with an asking of price of US$159.
