The OnePlus Watch has been the gadget on the lips of most OnePlus fans for a while now. It feels good to finally say that the wait is almost over. OnePlus has neither confirmed nor denied that the wearable will be making its official debut on March 23 alongside the OnePlus 9.
OnePlus revealed a glimpse of what we find to look very much like a smartwatch in a tweet and a forum post. The tweet was captioned “You asked for it. You’re getting it.” It will come as a great shock if this turns out not to be the OnePlus smartwatch.
Oneplus in its forum further said, “This fresh addition to the OnePlus family is healthy, punctual and even takes care of you while you sleep.” This info suggests that the tech tracks your sleep, tells time, and has built in fitness features.
As further confirmation of the launch date, the tweet also references March 23, same as the OnePlus 9 series launch date.
According to techradar, rumours of the OnePlus watch dates back to 2016. OnePlus made mention of the watch being at its initial stages of development. The company however, said that they had decided to focus exclusively on phones in the future. But it seems they have had a change of heart with this impending launch.
