Summary

The OnePlus Watch is the long-rumored smartwatch that isn't just real – it's a polished wearable that looks like it could rank up with the top smartwatches of the day. The watch connects to your phone via Bluetooth and it's managed via the new OnePlus Health app, which is also where you can view health stats and workouts tracked via the watch's various sensors. It offers some useful stock apps, but unlike the Apple Watch, the Fitbit Versa, or the Samsung Galaxy Watch, it doesn't support third-party apps.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

The OnePlus Watch is one of the most attractive smartwatches we've seen. Made from a heavy, polished stainless steel (or cobalt alloy), it's topped with hard, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass and comes with a thick, pin-and-tuck silicone-rubber strap. There's a combined optical heart-rate and blood-oxygen monitor on the rear, GPS for positioning (with support for GLONASS, Galileo and Beidou, too), an accelerometer, gyroscope and barometer.

Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
For its first smartwatch, OnePlus has opted for the round design of a traditional 46 mm watch. The companion app OnePlus Health is only available in the Play Store so far, but an iOS version is likely. The smartwatch plays music stored on the Watch via its speaker or a Bluetooth headset.

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
OnePlus Watch costs less than half the price of the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Samsung Galaxy Watch3. The watch features a 402mAh battery, which OnePlus says offers enough juice for "two weeks of sustainable use" Call, text, and app notifications come through in real time, and the watch's large screen offers ample room to read the subject line of emails.

Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus Watch is an attractive smartwatch with a polished sheen and streamlined design that make it look pricier than it is. The 46mm watch face is larger than even the larger 45mm version of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, making it the new king of Big Smartwatches. It may have less expansive capabilities than pricier rivals, and launch with only Android compatibility for its companion smartphone app (iOS coming soon)

Pros[**]
  • Stylish, minimalist design
  • Good battery life
  • Good fitness and health tracking capabilities
Cons[**]
  • Limited app store
  • Limited features at launch

Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The $159 OnePlus Watch is loaded with features we've come to expect on the best smartwatches. The watch has fitness tracking and blood oxygen monitoring, plus a week-long battery life. It's marketed much like OnePlus' phones, which attempt to deliver premium features for less.

  • Easy-to-use design

The OnePlus Watch will retail for £149/$159/€159 and it's available to order now. There's GPS, a heart rate monitor and a sensor to measure blood oxygen. The body is also IP68- and 5ATM-rated, so the device can be worn in the shower or whilst swimming. The Watch is only compatible with Android; it's a no-go for iPhone 12 users.
