OnePlus on Wednesday confirmed that its first smartwatch, the OnePlus Watch, will launch alongside the OnePlus 9 series during an event on March 23. OnePlus didn’t reveal many details about the smartwatch ahead of its launch, but said it will bring a “new element of convenience and seamless connectivity” between OnePlus devices and be offered at an “affordable price point.”
OnePlus said a smartwatch has been the most-requested device from its community. In December, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed the OnePlus Watch was coming. He shared a teaser for the OnePlus Watch on Wednesday, saying “It’s about time.”
On Friday, we got a peek at what the OnePlus Watch may look like thanks to a render posted on Twitter by Unbox Therapy. The smartwatch has a circular display that appears to have a silicone band, similar to the sport band for the Apple Watch. The official OnePlus account retweeted the render on Friday, saying “Watch out! We’ve got a lot more to show on March 23.”
OnePlus is partnering with Scandinavian camera maker Hasselblad to improve the cameras on the OnePlus 9 phones that will also be announced on March 23. The event is set to start at 7 a.m PT / 10 a.m. ET.
