OnePlus Watch 2: Specs and Features

The most recent version of the OnePlus Watch promises many improvements over the model that was first released in India in 2021. Improvements in battery life, aesthetics, feature set, and the use of Google’s most recent Wear OS 4 platform are some of the main improvements.

The OnePlus Watch 2 features a 2.5D sapphire crystal cover and a sturdy chassis made from US military standard MIL-STD-810H stainless steel, drawing inspiration from the OnePlus 12 series’ sleek design language.

The smartwatch also has an IP68 rating, meaning it is resistant to dust and water, guaranteeing its durability in a variety of conditions. Even with such a robust build, the device weighs only about 49g without the strap and about 80g with it.

The OnePlus Watch 2 is equipped with a bright 1.43-inch AMOLED display that is expected to produce good images even in bright outdoor lighting. Its resolution is 466 x 466 pixels, and it can reach a maximum brightness of 600 nits.

The BES 2700 MCU Efficiency chipset and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon W5 SoC work together to power the device. Performance is maximized by this dual-chip design, where the Efficiency chipset smoothly handles background processes and basic functions while the Snapdragon chipset handles resource-intensive tasks like running Google apps.

Notably, Google’s Wear OS 4 platform powers the OnePlus Watch 2, guaranteeing availability of a large range of applications. The 500 mAh battery powering the OnePlus Watch 2 is expected to provide long battery life.

In “smart mode,” users can anticipate up to 100 hours of battery life, and in “heavy use,” up to 48 hours. With a 7.5W VOOC fast charger that can fully recharge the battery in just 60 minutes, there is very little downtime when charging the device.

Ultimately, you as a consumer will need to evaluate the device based on its own merits and how well it aligns with your preferences and needs. Let’s discuss this in the comment section.
