OnePlus has this week launched its first smart watch and I'm quite taken with its slim, round design and its affordable price tag of $159 (£149, roughly AU$270). 

It offers notifications from your phone and a variety of health tracking measurements, including heart rate and blood oxygen. Its battery can last a week or more. 

However, we have found some connectivity issues in our testing so far, and some of the health metrics don't seem totally accurate, so we're keen to see how OnePlus addresses these as the software becomes publicly available.

The 46-inch screen is slender and comfortable to wear. It came with a rubber wrist strap but it can be easily swapped out for third-party alternatives.

You can access apps by pressing this easy-to-find OnePlus button on the side.

There are a variety of watch faces preloaded but I expect even more to be available in time.

The back of the watch is stuffed with a variety of sensors.

The screen is bright and sharp, making it easy to read when out and about.
