OnePlus is gearing up to launch the OnePlus 10 Pro, so can we expect a surprise OnePlus Watch 2 announcement?
The OnePlus Watch was released on the 23rd of March 2021, making it just over a year old. General smartwatch release trends point to a second device being released soon, but what do we know about the next OnePlus Watch?
If you’re interested in learning about this popular watch, keep reading. We’ve got all you need to know about the possible release and predicted features.
A New OnePlus Watch Arrival
We haven’t got confirmation from the tech brand yet, but many watch experts expect a second OnePlus Watch in 2022. Whether it’s in the summer or fall, a second-generation will likely be released sooner rather than later.
Fans are starting to speculate on a new launch since this would complement the OnePlus 10 Pro launch on the 31st of March, 2022. If the next watch were to be released now, it would confirm a typical annual launch cycle – a trend popular for most smartwatch brands.
What’s The Predicted Price?
When it comes to price, we’re estimating that the OnePlus Watch 2 will sit under $200. This is an affordable cost, especially since the watch is set to offer health and fitness features and typical intelligent features.
The first generation OnePlus Watch currently sits at $159, and this price is likely to drop when the next watch is announced. Keep your eyes peeled to catch a OnePlus Watch at a lower cost!
OnePlus Watch 2 Possible Features
The key to creating an attractive smartwatch is to keep up with the tech trends and offer more features than the previous watch release.
Though no features are confirmed, we can estimate characteristics that will appear on the next OnePlus wearable from popular watch tools and the parts the OnePlus watch 1 lacks.
So, what can we look forward to on the OnePlus Watch 2?
Introduction Of Wear OS
The first generation OnePlus Watch uses RTOS software, which is efficient and allows typical smartwatch features. However, we’d like to see the popular Wear OSf software on the next launch. Other branches, such as Samsung, adopt this popular operating software, and we expect OnePlus to follow.
Longer Battery Life
The original OnePlus Watch offers a whopping nine days of battery life. This beats the Samsung and Apple watches, allowing users to enjoy premium performance. Likely, the second OnePlus watch will also offer this feature, alongside faster charging time.
Updated Health Sensors
Though OnePlus offers fitness and health trackers, they aren’t the most accurate. The OnePlus Watch 2 needs consistent sensor results to compete with Apple and Fitbit. Whether this is a fault of the software sensors, we don’t know. However, this is an issue that needs resolving before the next launch.
Other Expected Features
Here are some features OnePlus users also want to see:
- Voice assistance
- This-party apps
New watch launches are always exciting. Hopefully, we’ll see the next OnePlus Watch 2 in a few months. Are you looking forward to the next OnePlus launch? Let us know in the comments.
