Ever since Apple debuted its first wearable device, electronics manufacturers everywhere have been scrambling to get a piece of the smartwatch pie. Some, like Garmin, have been more fruitful in their efforts, even managing to carve out their own particular niche. Others, however, have proven far less successful, introducing products largely inferior to the otherwise uncontested Apple Watch. At least until now.
Meet the OnePlus Watch, OnePlus’ first-ever foray into the smartwatch market and one that comes with a number of nifty features setting it apart. For instance, it offers a 14-day battery life with up to five days of blood oxygen monitoring and as many as 25 hours of continuous exercise tracking. But that’s not all — thanks to its Warp Charge system, you can top up a week’s worth of juice in as little as 20 minutes. And as far as specs go, the OnePlus Watch is surprisingly competitive despite its budget-friendly price, with 1GB of RAM, 4GB of onboard storage, and 110 preloaded workout modes, as well as support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS mapping. Housed in an IP68 water-resistant stainless steel case, it comes with a 1.39-inch sapphire glass OLED panel boasting 326ppi resolution. It’ll be available for $159 starting April 14th.
