Is it worth it?
The watch promises to deliver a 14 days battery life, which is appealing. You can also make and receive calls by the OnePlus watch.
The touch response is average, and unlike other smartwatches, it doesn’t display the user interface on double-tapping. To turn on the touchscreen, you have to press one of the function buttons on the watch. The user interface does not sting in the eye, is high quality and fluid.
And as a major downside, this watch does not have any third-party application support.
The bottom-line: OnePlus watch can be regarded as a great fitness watch. It will be challenging for the company to stand out against the other rival companies with this average product. A nice first attempt, anything except a smartwatch.
