Chinese online retailer JD.com listed the OnePlus Watch for pre-order. According to the listing, customers have to pay CNY 50 (about Rs 600) to reserve the smartwatch. Customers who pre-order the OnePlus Watch will get a discount of CNY 100 (about Rs. 1,100) on their last purchase.
The exact price of the smartwatch will not be revealed until later this year. Unbox Therapy posted a render of the OnePlus Watch on Twitter. It has a patterned wrist strap that looks circular in shape.
On the right, there are two different physical buttons, one with the OnePlus logo on it. The overall design of the OnePlus Watch in the leaked render resembles the Oppo Watch RX.
It is worth noting that both OnePlus and Oppo are owned and operated by the same parent company BBK Electronics and that their hardware R&D operations were recently merged.
What are the Specifications of the Oneplus Watches!
As per pre-order and all-in-all earlier reports, the OnePlus Watch will have a 46mm dial and will be available in Black and Silver. The smartwatch will feature a heart rate and oxygen saturation sensor as well as an IP68-certified design.
It can have fitness-tracking capabilities and a dedicated swimming mode. The OnePlus Watch is also expected to have 4GB of onboard storage and Warp Charge technology, which promises to deliver a week of battery life in just 20 minutes of charging.
OnePlus Watch was previously supposed to run on Google’s Wear OS. Nevertheless, OnePlus co-founder and CEO Pete Lau recently announced that it will ship with custom operating systems that will outperform Wear OS.
OnePlus Watch, as well as OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and OnePlus 9R smartphones will be launched on March 23 at the launch event of OnePlus.

When will OnePlus Watch Launch?
Word of the OnePlus Watch first emerged in August when a listing for the device appeared on the InfoCom Media Development Authority website. But the rest passed without any clock in 2020.
This year is going to change, no source has confirmed that the OnePlus Watch is in the works, compared to OnePlus CEO Pete Lau. In a tweet on 22 December, Lau said the watch would come “early next year”, meaning 2021.
Many of you said that you wanted a watch, and — as you may have heard over the weekend — we are making one, to be released early next year. Wishes come true
What will be the Price of one plus watch?
Unfortunately, there is no concrete description yet of how much the OnePlus Watch will cost. Given that this is the company’s first smartwatch, there is no current product that gives us a clue about pricing.
However, a March 17 OnePlus email stated that the OnePlus Watch will be at an “affordable price point so that more of our global OnePlus users can enjoy our signature-free, seamlessly connected experience.”
We believe that the OnePlus Watch will be marketed like the OnePlus phone, which tries to offer premium features at a lower price than comparable flagship phones.
If so, you expect the OnePlus Watch to be deployed as an alternative to devices such as the Apple Watch, starting at $ 399 for the Apple Watch Series 6 and $ 279 for the Apple Watch SE.
We also know which software the OnePlus Watch will run on. CEO Pete Lau told Input in a December interview that OnePlus was working with Google to build the smartwatch. Since Google’s Wear OS empowers other wearers, you expect the OnePlus Watch to also use Google’s software, though Lau suggests it is looking for a better version
