OnePlus took the covers off the OnePlus Watch during the OnePlus 9 series launch event recently in March. In our review of the smartwatch, they found that it offered a premium design, great battery life, and snappy performance. Yet, it did not two or three key features that are available on smartwatches that cost practically half so much.
This made OnePlus’s first attempt at a smartwatch a bit disappointing, yet the organization vowed to address these shortcomings via software updates. OnePlus has now begun rolling out one such update for the smartwatch, and it brings two features that should’ve been accessible toward the beginning.
The OnePlus Watch update (adaptation B.48) began rolling out to a handful of clients recently (by means of PhoneArena). According to the changelog mentioned in the declaration post on the OnePlus Community forums, the update includes Always-on Display support, a remote control camera function, a new Marathon workout mode, and some improvements.
Similarly as with all software updates from OnePlus, the OTA update for the OnePlus Watch will just arrive at a little level of clients at first. When OnePlus confirms that the update doesn’t have any basic issues, it should begin rolling out to more clients.
The full changelog for the OnePlus Watch B.48 update is as per the following:
- Add Always-on Display dial
- Remote Control Camera funciton
- Add Marathon workout
- Optimize system UI details
- Fix known issues and improve system stability
Do take note of that the new Always-on Display feature will keep the OnePlus Watch’s showcase on continually. This will influence battery life generally. OnePlus takes note of that utilizing the component will decrease the battery life by about half.
In the event that you have gotten the OTA update notification on your OnePlus Watch, ensure you have at any rate 40% charge left on the watch before you install the update. Likewise, guarantee that you keep the watch near your telephone to abstain from disturbing the Bluetooth association during the installation process.
