OnePlus presents its first Apple Watch contender promoting 2-week battery life and $159 cost
OnePlus has divulged its first smartwatch today and the wearable follows Apple Watch. While that is nothing unexpected and numerous Apple Watch clones have preceded, OnePlus Watch hopes to separate with a round plan, 2-week battery life, and other high-end features at a budget cost of just $159.
With regards to Apple Watch inspired features, OnePlus Watch has the vast majority of the hits: the sport band (effectively swappable), blood oxygen monitoring, following for more than 100 exercise types, more than 50 watch faces, built-in GPS, “breathing exercise,” heart rate tracking including HRV/stress monitoring, sleep tracking, sapphire glass display, and more.
Yet, going past what Apple Watch Series 6 offers, OnePlus says its new watch will have a colossal two-week battery life for regular use or one-week for hefty clients and come for a fraction of the Apple Watch’s cost at $159. Another battery guarantee, OnePlus says the watch will actually want to get one week of utilization from only 20 minutes on the charger.
Remarkably, the OnePlus Watch doesn’t run Google’s Wear OS and utilizations a custom RTOS build (like what Fitbit does) which will make the way for similarity with iOS just as Android. In any case, iOS support will not show up at launch in April. OnePlus told our sister-site 9to5Google: “Compatibility with iOS will come at a later date and work with 10.0 or above.”
OnePlus will likewise sell a special cobalt alloy edition of the watch. While the wearable seems like it packs a ton, some significant constraints incorporate no cellular model and no application store for developers/third-party applications. So actually, this will sit somewhere close to essential fitness trackers and Apple Watch in true functionality.
OnePlus Watch is going available to be purchased on April 14 in the midnight black base variant.
