The OnePlus Watch has now been unveiled alongside the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. Though a precise release date for the smartwatch hasn’t yet been made clear. But we have heard a range of details about the wearable.
It’s a new smartwatch from the company that does not operate on Wear OS. And it instead uses a separate software system.
Below you’ll find everything that we’ve learned about the OnePlus Watch. Including the value, release date, specs, design, features, and more.
So, if you are a fan of OnePlus or you love smartwatches but can spend more on Apple Watch, then this is for you. Ensure you carefully read through this article to know all about this smartwatch.
OnePlus Watch Release Date And Price
The OnePlus Watch was announced on stage at the OnePlus 9 launch event on the 23rd of March. And it goes on sale within the US on the 14th of April, and within the UK on the 26th of April.
The OnePlus Watch will retail at $159/£149, which is approximately AU$210 at launch. While the OnePlus Watch is confirmed to be coming to the US and also the UK, there is no news on Australia.
Australia doesn’t often get OnePlus products for instance; the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro won’t get on sale there. So, we’re not confident you will be able to buy this wearable within the country.
It’s worth noting that the OnePlus Watch is cheaper than the recent Oppo Watch, starting at £229 around $300, AU$420. We mention this because OnePlus and Oppo have a similar parent company, and their phones often have things in common.
The OnePlus Watch may be a circular smartwatch, so OnePlus is eschewing the ‘squircle’ design of Fitbit, Apple, and Oppo, and it’s made from stainless steel.
Its bands are made from a material called fluoroelastomer, which is breathable and powerful. The smartwatch has two crowns. One among which is for the app menu and also the other presumably brings up another shortcut. The case itself is 46.4 × 46.4 ×10.9mm.
And this makes the OnePlus Watch fairly sizable compared to its competition. Including the strap, it weighs 76g.
Fitness and features
The OnePlus Watch comes with over 110 fitness workouts inbuilt. And also, the sports on offer here include running, swimming, dancing, parkour and far more. So, users will have an enormous range of modes to decide from.
The OnePlus Watch also can auto-detect some workouts. So, if you begin running or jogging the watch will automatically start tracking it, and if you stop the watch will pause the tracking.
As well its fitness modes, there’s also sleep tracking. Also, as other tracking features like a pulse monitor, built-in GPS, blood oxygen scanning, and more.
The OnePlus Watch runs on OnePlus’ proprietary OS, not Wear OS as some early rumors predicted. It also has 4GB of storage – that’s space for about 500 songs.
Naturally, the watch is additionally compatible with the OnePlus Buds, providing a hands-free alternative for your listening pleasure.
The OnePlus Watch also can remind you to have quick breaks if you’re working long hours. With a feature to remind you to get up and stretch, or take quick breathing exercises.

The OnePlus Watch can supposedly last for up to 2 weeks on one charge of its 402mAh battery. And up to 5 days when using sleep blood oxygen monitoring.
OnePlus TV functionality
If you own a OnePlus TV, then the OnePlus Watch will offer another way for you to interact with the device. The watch has OnePlus TV integration, which can allow you to use the watch as a remote to regulate your TV.
Features include having the ability to regulate the TV’s volume and power it on and off. Impressively. The watch will smartly lower the TV volume if you’re on a call.
