OnePlus SmartWatch Could Launch Soon

Published

on

OnePlus has been working on a smartwatch for a while now and a couple of years ago the company had plans of launching one. However, the product was scrapped as the company felt it wasn’t the right time to launch such a product in the market. During that time, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau had said that a number of major OEMs have already released various products in a variety of markets, and adding one more would not help in strengthening OnePlus’ lineup of products.

First, it was expected to launch somewhere in 2016 and OnePlus had canceled the plans for their smartwatch. After, a long silence we were expecting it to come in 2020 still nothing has been launched by the company. With this, we can only expect that it can be revealed somewhere in the 4th quarter of 2020.

Last month we reported that the smartwatch had received certification from Singapore’s Info comm Media Development Authority (IMDA). The IMDA certification was also a hint that the launch was not very far off. This will be the company’s first-ever wearable product adding to its wireless earphones and smart TV range.

It will be interesting to see what platform OnePlus will stick to, especially since Google’s WearOS continues to play catch up with Apple and Samsung. We recently saw OPPO launching its first WearOS based smartwatch with a square dial that received positive feedback. More recently a leak suggests that Vivo is also preparing to launch its own circular smartwatch. This essentially means that OnePlus could take pointers from the two brands since all of them operate under a single conglomerate.

Design & Built

When launched it will be the best durable smartwatch of all the times, they will be using the best grade metal to make it very tough. For the design, it should come in a circular shape as it shows in the sketches above, but they are too old to believe. There can be an AMOLED touch panel that will give the best experience on the top of it. I think always a well-designed smartwatch sells more and gets popularity among the public The companies are trying different types of awesome designs for their future watches. The OnePlus watch can be designed in one of the best modern ways that we would have never seen on any other device in the competition.

UI and Experience

OnePlus is always known for its best-optimized UI experience on their smartphones so, we can expect the same thing with the smartwatch. Most of the Android wearables come packed with WearOS that is Google’s customized OS for smartwatches. UI experience is the segment where all the users want something out of the world experience and there is no doubt that the OnePlus is capable of providing this. I am sure if OnePlus smartwatch will launch it will kick Xiaomi and other Chinese brands straight out of the competition.

Features

Tons of new features can be expected on this particular smartwatch, like the waterproof capability. For sensors, there can be heart rate, calories burnt, steps count even the sleeping patterns monitor and blood pressure count will be available on the smartwatch. With the Physical activity tracker, you can get detailed info about running, swimming, cycling activities.

We all are seeing about fast wireless charging in the OnePlus smartwatch so there are high chances that the device will be packed with a wireless charging feature. You just have to put your watch into the wireless charging pad and boom your OnePlus smartwatch will be charged fully within minutes.

Connectivity

It will be supported by GPS, Wi-Fi, NFC, and also there are possibilities that they will put an eSIM on it. Because most of the premium well know brands are implementing e-SIM on their smartwatches. So adopting new technology is the best choice for a company who promotes never settle slogan.
