The OnePlus Watch aims to integrate into the daily digital life of OnePlus users, offering stylish design, seamless connection, smart fitness tracking and incredibly long battery life.

Here's everything you need to know about the OnePlus Watch…

OnePlus Watch: Design

Let's start with how the OnePlus Watch looks and feels. The new smartwatch features the same craftsmanship and build quality as OnePlus smartphones. OnePlus says this results in a product that is "powerful to use and beautiful to hold". 

It features a round design, which emulates the look of a traditional watch, and a smooth, curved stainless steel case that is hand-polished with more than 20 treatments for a refined finish. 

The case is pretty large, coming in at 46mm, and features 2.5D curved glass on the face.

At launch, the standard model will be joined by a 'Cobalt Limited Edition', which uses materials traditionally found only on luxury watches. 

The watch case is crafted from cobalt alloy, a hypoallergenic material that is twice as hard and more corrosion resistant than traditional stainless steel.  The watch face is made from specially-treated sapphire glass for enhanced brightness and exceptional scratch resistance.

OnePlus Watch: Connectivity and Specs

Just like every other smartwatch, the OnePlus Watch allows you to view and respond to notifications, make and answer phone calls, play music and take photos. 

It comes with 4 GB of standalone storage, with 2GB of usable storage (enough for over 500 songs, apparently).

The smartwatch is also compatible with most Bluetooth earbuds for wireless music playback on the go – especially useful if you use your smartwatch for working out.

The OnePlus Watch can also connect to your OnePlus TV, acting as a smart remote control that can lower volume when a call comes in, or even turn off the TV when it detects that you have fallen asleep.

OnePlus Watch: Battery

The OnePlus Watch features a 402 mAh battery which has enough power for up to two weeks of 'sustainable' use, as well as up to a week of battery life for the 'most active users'. 

The battery also features exceptional charging capabilities, delivering all-day power in just five minutes, or a week’s power in just 20 minutes.

OnePlus Watch: Fitness

The OnePlus Watch features 110+ workout types, including automatic workout detection for jogging and running.

It'll measure pulse, distance, calories, speed monitoring, and, thanks to IP68 water resistance, SWOLF efficiency for swimmers. 

If you're more interested in your sleep than how much exercise you're doing, then the OnePlus Watch is also capable of tracking your sleep.

The OnePlus Watch tracks all your activity accurately with a built-in GPS, even when you have left your phone at home.

The affordable smartwatch can also offer blood oxygen saturation monitoring, stress detection, breathing training, rapid heart rate alerts, which is an impressive feature set usually reserved for much more expensive wearables.

All of your health data can be viewed in the OnePlus Health app.
