Aside from introducing the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, OnePlus also launched their latest wearable, the OnePlus Watch.
The OnePlus Watch is the brand’s first global wearable device.
It integrates into the daily digital life of OnePlus users, offering stylish design, seamless connection, smart fitness tracking and incredibly long battery life.
Highlights of the OnePlus Watch
I personally have no problems with the design of the OnePlus Watch because I like round watches.
According to the launch, the smooth arc on the side of the case is hand-polished with more than 20 treatments for a refined finish.
The 46 mm case is crafted from quality stainless steel, with 2.5D curved glass on the face and a subtle yet radiant glossy CD pattern on the display bezel for an added touch of class.
Among the major highlights of the OnePlus Watch, which looks almost like the Samsung Watch Active are:
- 1.39″ AMOLED display
- 402mAh battery which can last 14 days on sustainable use (7 days on power use)
- Full charged in 20 minutes
- 4GB standalone storage (2GB for actual use)
- 110+ workout types
- IP68 rated
- Reads blood oxygen saturation monitoring, stress detection, breathing training, rapid heart rate alerts and sedentary reminders
- Automatic workout detection for jogging and running
In addition to the features above, the watch can also act as a mini TV remote to the OnePlus TV.
This feature allows the TV volume to minimize upon getting a call, with the TV powering off automatically when it detects you had fallen asleep. Pretty handy!
OnePlus Watch Cobalt Limited Edition
OnePlus also mentioned that there would also be a special OnePlus Watch Cobalt Limited Edition version which they say would take the premium design a step further.
This limited edition watch will be made with materials traditionally found only on luxury watches.
The watch case of the Limited Edition is crafted from cobalt alloy, a unique hypoallergenic material that is twice as hard and more corrosion-resistant than traditional stainless steel.
It will also have a watch face which is made from specially-treated sapphire glass, with a Mohs rating of 9.
This will enhanced brightness of the display and provide exceptional scratch resistance.
Availability and price
According to the launch, the watch should be priced around USD159 (~RM649).
The watch is expected to be available in April this year. That’s not far away.
However, there’s no mention when it will come to Malaysia although I don’t think it would take too long to do so.
Either way, it’s always fun to check if the watch has arrived in local online stores if you can’t wait for its official debut to Malaysia.
