After years spent in the rumor mills, the OnePlus Watch is finally here and on our hands. With the company slowly diverging into other markets, it was only a matter of time before we got a smartwatch from OnePlus. In fact, it’s slightly weird that we got a OnePlus TV before a OnePlus Watch.
But the OnePlus Watch almost didn’t exist. The original smartwatch project was canceled sometime in 2015-2016, with Carl Pei then revealing early design sketches of a watch that will never exist in a since-deleted tweet. But since then, the company seems to have changed its stance on wearables. Last year, we saw OnePlus launch its first fitness band and today we have the OnePlus Watch.
