OS without wear, but two weeks of battery life
OnePlus Watch announced, and shockingly, it doesn’t work with Wear OS at all.
The OnePlus Watch, which goes on sale worldwide for $ 159 / £ 149, runs on a proprietary OS and features that will allow it to fight big wearable names.
It’s an impressive feature set that immediately puts the OnePlus Watch on a par with the Xiaomi Mi Watch, Amazfit GTS 2, and Huawei Watch GT 2e.
We look forward to the coming smartwatches

The round design comes in a 46mm stainless steel case (46.4 x 46.4 x 10.9 mm), which is available in two colors – black and silver – so this is a good watch targeting the men’s market. …
This body houses a 1.39-inch AMOLED screen with a 454 x 454 and a density of 326 PPI, which looks good against the competition.
It features a fluoroelastomer strap that is sweat-resistant and breathable
The heart rate monitor can also monitor blood oxygen levels and track stress levels using the irregular heart’s variability tracking.
It comes with a built-in GPS and 110 workout profiles for almost any sporting activity as a good smartwatch. It also automatically detects workouts.
It is supported with IP68 dust and moisture protection with a 5ATM rating, which means swimming up to 50 meters is available. It will track SWOLF (stroke efficiency) and other measures of distance and length in the pool.
There is 4GB of storage onboard, and you can control your OnePlus TV from your wrist. And it stores up to 500 songs and connects to Bluetooth headphones – although there is no word about supporting any streaming services.
Likewise, there is no indication that OnePlus will have any apps or work well with third-party services. Amazfit devices do not support apps, but they keep the Strava API for exporting workouts to the popular platform. We hope to see the same with the OnePlus Watch.
OnePlus Watch: battery life
Inside is a massive 420mAh battery that lasts two weeks on a single charge. That’s a huge battery life considering the quality of the screen – and here, it compares to the likes of the Amazfit GTS 2 and Huawei Watch GT2e.
OnePlus Watch extends battery life with blazing-fast charging. According to OnePlus, just 20 minutes of charging will last for a week of use. And with just five minutes on the charging plate, you can live an entire day, making battery life one of the critical stories of the OnePlus Watch.
