Product Overview

OnePlus Watch is the first smartwatch by the Chinese marque best known for its premium smartphones. Featuring a stylish round watch face, the OnePlus Watch finds a mid-ground between sportiness and elegance.
Like many of its contemporaries, the OnePlus Watch is built from stainless steel and paired with a fluroelastomer strap. It comes with IP68 dust and moisture resistance. With a battery life over two weeks long, the OnePlus Watch is a great option for training, with over 110 workout types.
Compared to more premium models, however, the OnePlus Watch is limited to Bluetooth 5.0.

Reviewers from androidauthority have found the following***:
The app is too basic. It's divided into three tabs: Health, Fitness, and Manage. The default tabs let you view the average heart rate, last night's sleep, SpO2 value, stress, and workout logs. My biggest gripe with the app is its inability to connect with most third-party services.

Pros
  • Decent battery life
  • Solid fitness tracking
  • Decent performance
Cons
  • Unreliable app
  • Lack of features

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
Sensors measure heart rate and oxygen saturation very well - more precisely than many other fitness trackers. On a 4.68-kilometer standard lap, which we complete with every fitness tracker, the OnePlus Watch only counted 4.43 km during a regularly launched "fat-burning run" The battery had lost half of its capacity after 4.5 days. Warp Charge charges the watch for a whole day in just 5 minutes.

Pros
  • Accurate GPS
  • Accurate sleep tracking
  • Long battery life
Cons
  • No always-on display
  • Only 14 workout modes
  • Missing sleep data in Google Fit

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The $159 OnePlus Watch can track your sleep, monitor your stress, and help you relax with guided breathing exercises. It's not quite a true smartwatch due to its lack of third-party app support and it falls short on the fitness front due to GPS issues. If you're looking for an affordable fitness tracker or smartwatch, we highly recommend the Fitbit Versa Versa.

Pros
  • Excellent touch screen

  • No GPS

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
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 will come in one size and configuration: 46mm watch face with 1GB RAM and 4GB storage, and a single color: Midnight Black. It will go on sale on the OnePlus website on April 14 for $159 (around £115 / AU$208) There is also a Cobalt Limited Edition in the works, which swaps out the stainless steel case for a cobalt alloy.

Pros
  • Sleek design

Cons
  • No rotating bezel

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The OnePlus Watch doesn't run Google's WearOS, and instead uses the company's bespoke operating system. The bespoke interface is simple and efficient, mimicking some of WearOS' cardinal-direction-swipe navigation. The watch is compatible with most Bluetooth earbuds, and can apparently connect to the OnePlus TV to act as a smart remote.

Pros
  • Long battery life with regular use
  • Good fitness tracking
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • No WearOS or watchOS apps
  • Occasional software hiccups

Reviewers from theverge have found the following***:
The OnePlus Watch is a fitness tracker in a smartwatch body. The touchscreen is a 1.39-inch 454 x 454 OLED that's easy to see both indoors and out. There's no always-on display option, which nearly every other smartwatch has now. The best thing about the watch is its battery life.

Pros
  • Long battery life
  • Easy to use
  • Fast charging
Cons
  • Only comes in one size
  • No always-on display

At just $159, the OnePlus Watch is one of the least expensive smartwatches ever released by top smartphone maker. The watch supports a number of health monitoring features, including 110 workout modes and 15 professional fitness modes. When paired to your Android phone, the watch can be used to respond to text messages or answer phone calls.

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following***:
Don't expect the watch to wow you with its watch faces either. Some of the designs lean so heavily into the minimalist concept that you have to squint to see the dials. Performance wise, the OnePlus Watch runs just fine. Charging also operates brilliantly, as I was able to get back to 100% (from 17%) in just shy of an hour.

Pros
  • Sleek design
  • Good battery life
  • Good fitness tracking
Cons
  • Lack of smartwatch features
  • Mediocre battery life

Reviewers from wired have found the following***:
Sleep tracking and the built-in GPS are accurate, but they're somewhat buggy. Swipe away a notification and it doesn't slide away, but instantly disappears into a void. The user interface doesn't look polished, and it makes interacting with the watch a little unsatisfying.

Pros
  • Accurate sleep tracking
  • Auto-detects walks, runs, and runs
  • Accurate heart rate tracking
Cons
  • Lacks built-in GPS
  • Disappointing notifications
