OnePlus unveiled its first wearable devices, dubbed the OnePlus Band, in January and will unveil its first smartwatch alongside the OnePlus 9 series on March 23rd.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed that their first smartwatch, called the OnePlus Watch, will provide a “seamless connection” between OnePlus devices, including smartphones, audio peripherals, smart clothes and smart TVs.
Pete Lau added that the OnePlus Watch will have a “stunning and lightweight design,” and also posted the first video confirming that the OnePlus Watch will receive a round watch face. Presumably, the diameter will be 46 mm.
The OnePlus CEO also said the OnePlus Watch will provide “a best-in-class experience at an affordable price.” He added that the OnePlus Watch will not run the Google Wear operating system. Instead, they will receive a new operating system.
When developing the OnePlus Watch, we tried to understand the pain points for the smartwatch owner. We’ve built a smart real-time operating system (RTOS) that delivers smooth and reliable operation while offering long battery life.
Expertly crafted and meticulously designed, the #OnePlusWatch is the perfect companion to elevate your digital life. Rack up steps, monitor your heart-rate, and much more, with our debut timepiece.

It is known that the watch will receive a step counter and heart rate monitoring, as well as an SpO2 sensor, support for various types of training, sleep tracking and 4 GB of internal memory. They can also be used as a remote control for OnePlus TVs. Warp Charge fast charging technology will charge them for a week of work in 20 minutes.
Smartwatches are under $ 100. LeTV Watch W6 presented
LeEco has already presented the LeTV S1 smartphone as part of its return to the market, and now it has also shown a smart watch.
The LeTV Watch W6 model is offered at a price of $ 95, and is now available for $ 80 at all. At the same time, there is a good set of characteristics.
There is an AMOLED display with a diameter of 1.39 inches, there is protection against water (IP67), autonomy is two to three days with normal use and up to a week in standby mode.
The watch doesn’t seem to have an operating system, but there are dozens of watch faces, a heart rate sensor, a pulse oximeter function, sleep monitoring, and a workout tracking function (seven types of load). But there is no GPS module here.
The watch weighs 70 g and works with both Android and iOS.
Specialists of the popular iFixit resource, specializing in the repair of various electronics, disassembled the new Apple Watch Series 7 smartwatch and shared the results with the public.
Firstly, the watch scored 6 points on a 10-point scale of maintainability and generally positive reviews for its modular design, easy access to the screen and battery. Experts also praised Apple for keeping the Apple Watch Series 7 compatible with previous generations of bands, right up to the very first original Apple Watch.
IFixit notes that despite minimal external changes, there are several major updates to the Apple Watch Series 7.
As mentioned several times, the main difference between this device and the Series 6 is the enlarged display. Disassembling iFixit revealed that the watch uses an OLED panel with an integrated touchscreen (on-cell touch), this technology debuted in the iPhone 13.
According to experts, this is an unusual approach for Apple, which usually prefers to experiment with new screen technologies on watches, and then implement them on smartphones – as happened with OLED, variable refresh rate and the function of “always on” screen.
IFixit partnered with three former Apple engineers to disassemble the Apple Watch Series 7. As they noted, it was the new display that could cause delays in production and force the company to release the device later than it would like.
When Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 7 in September, it didn’t announce a specific release date. Former Apple engineers said this is usually indicative of delays, and the most likely cause is a manufacturing glitch caused by watch displays. They explained, “The screens have some of the most complex supply chains and assembly processes in the industry.”
The iFixit experts also found that the Apple Watch Series 7 has a larger battery compared to its predecessor. However, this did not lead to an increase in battery life, since the larger screen consumes more power.
Round AMOLED screen, over 100 training modes, heart rate and SpO2 sensors, GPS, waterproof and up to 14 days of battery life. Presented smartwatch Huawei Watch GT3
After a string of teasers, leaks, and even two official demos, Huawei has finally officially unveiled the Watch GT3 smartwatch. The novelty has two versions – 42 mm with a screen with a diameter of 1.32 inches and 46 mm with a screen with a diameter of 1.46 inches. In both cases AMOLED panels are used. The dimensions of the older model are 45.9 x 45.9 x 11 mm, the younger – 42.3 x 42.3 x 10.2 mm. Weight, respectively, 42.6 and 35 grams. The housings in both cases are made of stainless steel and plastic.
The Huawei Watch GT3 supports over 100 exercise modes and Healthy Living Clover provides guidance on exercise, sleep and walking throughout the day. A fifth-generation TruSeen optical heart rate sensor is also provided, and blood oxygenation measurement is supported.
Both versions have 32MB of RAM and 4GB of internal flash memory, are waterproof (5ATM) and are compatible with Android and iOS devices. Telephony is supported due to the built-in microphone and headphones, but there is no built-in SIM card, so for calls you need to pair with a smartphone via Bluetooth. The watch is equipped with a GPS receiver. The autonomy of the younger version is seven days, the older one – 14 days.
In Europe, it is already possible to pre-order the new product; Huawei FreeBuds 4i headphones are a bonus for the first buyers. The 42mm version costs 330 euros, the 46mm version costs 350 euros. Retail sales will start on November 10.
