OnePlus debuted in the smartwatch segment back in 2021 when it launched the OnePlus Watch, and since then, the brand hasn’t come up with a successor to the product. It finally seems like OnePlus is now ready to launch the next product in its wearable products lineup, which will be called the OnePlus Watch 2. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming watch from the Chinese brand in the form of official confirmations, leaks and rumours.
OnePlus Watch 2: Design
OnePlus Watch was an ordinary-looking wearable, but the OnePlus Watch 2 will change that with a more focus on design that brings some unique elements into the picture. According to photos that were shared by OnePlus, the design of the watch is inspired by camera module of the OnePlus 12. “It features a stainless steel chassis and a sapphire crystal watch face that offers both timeless elegance and resilience against the trials of daily life”, said OnePlus.
The Watch 2 will have a refreshed design over the first watch, where the right spine of the wearable protrudes and isn’t flush with the metal chassis. The buttons lie on the top and bottom of this protrusion. While the circular dial remains identical to the original OnePlus Watch, this change in design could help in a clearer differentiation between the two generations of watches. Then, one can see the charging pins at the back of the watch.
The Watch 2 will be available in two colourways—Black Steel and Radiant Steel.
OnePlus Watch 2: Specifications
There are not many specifications available to us at the moment, but one welcome change has been confirmed via leaks, and it is the presence of WearOS, replacing OnePlus’ own operating system it used in the first generation watch. The Watch 2 will purportedly run on WearOS 4, which is the latest version of WearOS Google has to offer at the moment.
Aside from that, the Watch 2 will sport a 1.43-inch AMOLED display. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 chipset. It will also house all the usual health Sensors beneath the display such as a blood oxygen monitor, heart rate monitor and more, along with the charging connector as seen in the renders.
As confirmed by OnePlus itself, it will offer up to a 100-hour battery life in full Smart Mode.
OnePlus Watch 2: Launch Date
OnePlus has confirmed that it will be launching the Watch 2 worldwide on February 26 including in India at 8:30 PM IST to be precise.
