The $160 OnePlus Watch has arrived.
Now let's take a look at what's inside the box and I'm going to give you my very first impressions.
One plus has been around for a while they're mainly known for their smartphones.
But this is the very first smartwatch for the company, which is why I'm so interested To see what they include inside of the box, particularly because it is at such a low price point compared to its competitors.
Now, first things first, the red box, it's their signature color.
I kind of like the the red and the black.
It's very obvious as to what's inside the box, the one plus watch and doesn't give you a lot more information than that.
Now, there is a tab over here indicating that this is how I'm gonna open it.
So I might not even need like box cutter.
Start with that.
And then peel off the plastic.
I'm going to take it off camera and pick it up later [LAUGH] just to clear out the clutter and stick it a little bit so that it comes out and Open the box.
Hey, it's harder than it looks guys, come on, and here you have it.
My first thought is that it looks kinda big, kinda manly, if you will, which may not be a problem for a lot of you.
Now, I'm gonna set this aside and just bring out the watch.
Here and then, continue to unbox it and then we'll come back to the watch.
So, it's got another layer over here, and it says accessories.
Now, my second thought is that it looks a lot like the packaging.
Of the Apple Watch.
And it's no coincidence it has a lot of the same features as the Apple Watch including that SPO two tracking and the high and low heart rate alerts.
So it does resemble the Apple Watch in packaging as well.
So let's see what we have here.
Let's get started.
It is an instructions manual With kind of a general look at how you're gonna be using the watch, continue once digging what else is in here.
Wait, sorry, the main event accessories, but there's actually no accessories.
The accessory is More instructions.
[LAUGH] I was kinda expecting a different sized watch band considering they said accessories right there.
But no, okay, sure, if you wanna be misleading like that.
And lastly, let's take a look at what's in here.
Okay, there's just tabs supposedly to put your finger in but it's not as easy to grab on to.
Okay, here we go.
This is the charger.
So like other smartwatches it doesn't include the charging brick, just the cable and the charging dock which is branded one plus And then, there's a little plastic which I will get rid of as well to protect it, let's get the full look of the watch.
And here it is.
And now that we've unboxed the watch Kind of gonna put all of this stuff aside so that we can take a closer look at what we really wanna see which is the watch itself.
In conclusion, it doesn't have much it has the watch itself instructions, warranty information, the charging cable and the charging dock, no brick, but also No extra strap.
So that's important to note if you are worried about how it's going to fit on your wrist.
Now let's take the plastic off over here.
It tells me what the two buttons are for in this case.
We have an app list mean dialed right here and the function key and power key.
So basically just two buttons on the side.
No digital Crown no rotating bezel non of the sort.
Take the plastic off.
And yeah, it's a smartwatch.
I already said this, but I'm just very taken by its large mess.
It's around watch obviously.
But it just looks big.
It's not necessarily a bad thing I just, this is the 46 millimeter watch face and this is how it looks take it with a grain of salt.
This is the only option in terms of sizing for the watch face.
Now that it's on, it doesn't Look as bad I think it kind of reminds me a lot of the Samsung Galaxy watch.
It's it's a little bit less clunky than the watch three because it doesn't have that rotating bezel.
Not quite as sleek as the galaxy watch active two mainly because it is just larger I have only tried the smaller size But yeah, it looks actually pretty elegant.
It's stainless steel and you really can tell that it looks high end and the watchband itself also seems comfortable and on par with some of its more expensive competitors.
Now it is important to note that while I am referencing the Apple Watch galaxy, watch.
This watch is only compatible with Android devices for now, according to the company, iOS compatibility is coming but down the line and we don't know the timeline for that yet.
Now here are some of the sensors on the back.
As I mentioned before, it does measure SpO2, it also measures heart rate, it can give you high and low heart rate alerts.
And it also measures stress levels.
This is something that we're starting to see on smartwatches.
This actually this is something that the galaxy watches done for a while.
They kind of vary in how they do it.
The Fitbit sense also measures stress but it has a designated sensor to do this.
This particular watches using the heart rate to determine stress levels much like the galaxy watch.
Now as you can see here, as I'm looking at the sensors, I can also see the quick release for the watch band.
So this looks like a pretty standard watch band and I'm sure you could switch it up to whatever your preference is, or what it comes with.
It's actually not bad and it seems pretty, pretty comfortable.
On my wrist, and the mechanism for putting it on is very, very similar to that of the Apple watch.
First you flip it in here and then you tuck the loop underneath, like that.
So I'm gonna go ahead and power it up, right now, assuming that It has a little bit of power to do this.
So I think I'm pressing the wrong right one I'm trying to do this to face you so that you can see it but I just powered it on with the on button.
And there it is.
There's the interface.
So as my closing thoughts I would say that it has impressed me in terms of the design It does not look like $160 smartwatch.
I've reviewed cheaper smartwatches in the past and they tend to look like what you pay for but in this case, it really does look like a premium smartwatch whether or not the functionality of that reflects it.
I don't know but I will be reviewing it.
For the next week or so, so please check back with us for that for review.
And in the meantime, let me know what else you want to know about the one plus watch and what I should look out for as I go into this review.
Till next time.
