OnePlus Watch goes on pre-order in China

OnePlus Watch on JD

The listing of the OnePlus Watch on JD has an image of the smartwatch. This image shows the OnePlus Watch from the same angle as the image shared by Unbox Therapy. JD has set the pre-order amount for the OnePlus Watch at CNY 50 (approximately Rs 600). People who pre-order the OnePlus Watch through JD will get CNY 100 discount (approximately Rs 100). The listing of the OnePlus Watch on JD does confirm that the smartwatch will have Bluetooth and GPS.

OnePlus Watch design leaked

The OnePlus Watch render shared by Unbox Therapy shows that the smartwatch will come with a circular dial and curved glass. The dial has two buttons on the right-hand side of the device. Since the left-hand side of the smartwatch can’t be seen in the image, we can’t confirm if that side of the smartwatch has buttons or not.

As you can see in the image, the OnePlus Watch seems to have a textured silicone strap with traditional watch strap mounts. The overall design of OnePlus Watch looks minimalistic and elegant, at least in the image.

OnePlus Watch expected specifications

OnePlus has revealed that the OnePlus Watch will not come with Google’s Wear OS but with its own operating system. The OnePlus Watch is expected to feature a 46mm dial size and come in Black and Silver color options. It is said to feature heart rate and SpO2 sensors, 4GB internal storage, IP68 certification, fitness tracking, and Warp Charge technology that can offer a week-long power in 20 minutes.
