After many months of rumors, OnePlus finally unveiled its first Smartwatch at the OnePlus 9 Series Launch Event today.
Although the OnePlus Smartwatch design looks similar to the Samsung Galaxy Active without the rotating bezel, this watch is fabricated to look sleek and appears very sturdy. The watch uses 316 steel in its fabrication, making it a sturdy watch.
The classic Oneplus watch comes in two color variants: Moonlight silver and midnight black.
The watch case is 46 mm in size, making it for a large display. The display is a sapphire crystal display with a 326 PPI resolution.
The company also provided some guidance around the second variant of their OnePlus Smartwatch. They unveiled a Cobalt Alloy premium edition of the smartwatch.
The new Cobalt Limited edition brings new frontiers for durability for a smartwatch. This is the first time cobalt alloy material has been used on a smartwatch.
Cobalt alloy is hypoallergenic since it doesn’t have any nickel on it.
The watch comes with more than 50 different watch faces, or use your own watch photos to create a personal watch face.

According to the company, an iOS variant for the Oneplus Watch app will be made available in the future.
The watch also works as a remote control for your TV. You can turn on the TV, control the volume, etc.
If you are watching TV and fall asleep, the Oneplus Watch will automatically switch off your TV after 30 minutes since it can detect sleep activity.
