The OnePlus Watch gets a critical feature it should have had at launch (but there's a catch)

The OnePlus Watch gets a critical feature it should have had at launch (but there's a catch)

We had high expectations when we first heard OnePlus was working on a smartwatch and thought it would combine great value with an affordable price. Unfortunately, when we reviewed it, we found out it lacked a bunch of essential features.

However, when OnePlus announced the first update for its smartwatch, we thought it would fix some of its flaws. Sadly, it only corrected a handful of bugs without really adding new functionality. Thankfully, the OnePlus watch is getting another update, which adds the much-expected always-on display feature.

OnePlus' first smartwatch is... bad — here's what we think it needs to improve

OnePlus' first smartwatch is... bad — here's what we think it needs to improve

The OnePlus Watch is a very confusing product — it lacks the smarts of a real smartwatch, but it’s also a terrible fitness band with botched tracking. So what is it trying to be, exactly? Frankly, I don't have a clue, and neither does OnePlus, seemingly. In its haste to deliver some kind of smartwatch, the company came out with a half-baked wearable that falls flat in several crucial ways.

RedMagic's new Watch is a lot like the OnePlus Watch, only $60 less

RedMagic's new Watch is a lot like the OnePlus Watch, only $60 less

RedMagic has a new smart watch for you to check out, and surprisingly, it has nothing to do with eSports: it's more focused on actual sports and fitness. It uses a round OLED display, a super-long battery life, has a low price, and it eschewed Wear OS or any other established platform... Wait a second, didn't we just do this one? I feel like we just did this one.

The OnePlus Watch's first software update isn't what we hoped for

The OnePlus Watch's first software update isn't what we hoped for

When OnePlus unveiled its first smartwatch, it sounded like it would offer great value at an affordable price, just like most of the brand's products. Sadly, the device was not only hard to find; it turned out to be an unfinished product that lacked essential features. Thankfully, most of these issues could be fixed with software improvements, which is why we had high hopes when OnePlus announced one for its watch. Unfortunately, it mainly fixes bugs but doesn't add much to the watch for now.

OnePlus Watch review: I don't have time for this

If you want a smartwatch to pair with your Android phone, you've got a lot of options. There are Wear OS watches from a billion different manufacturers, plus Fitbits, Samsung's Galaxy Watch devices, and plenty more niche picks. This month, OnePlus tossed its hat in the ring with the creatively named OnePlus Watch. For $159, it offers quality hardware and great battery life — but crappy custom software makes using it a miserable experience.

Good luck buying a OnePlus Watch

Good luck buying a OnePlus Watch

OnePlus managed to scrounge up a lot of excitement for its first smartwatch last month at its official unveiling. With included fitness tracking and up to two weeks of battery, it seemed like a great deal at $159, even before taking the $20 voucher offered for the watch into account. Launch day has arrived, and OnePlus's newest gadget is officially up for sale — or it would be, rather, if it hadn't sold out almost immediately.

Here's how to get a OnePlus Watch for $139 ($20 off)

The OnePlus Watch was just officially announced yesterday following a very on-brand drip-feed of leaks and teasers. At $159, it already looks like a strong value — but if you want an even stronger value, OnePlus has a voucher you can claim up until the day it launches to save 20 bucks.
