OnePlus Watch has been one of the long-awaited products from the company. Even though the company forayed into the wearable category with the OnePlus Band earlier this year, the OnePlus Watch development started almost 6 years back. The company had started working on a smartwatch in 2015 but decided to discard it later. In Oct 2020, the company took it to social media to share a teaser, and soon after, rumors and leaks surrounding the Watch started popping on the web. Now, the company has finally confirmed the launch date for its first-ever smartwatch. The Watch will make a debut along with the OnePlus 9 series devices later this month on the 23rd of March.
OnePlus took it to social media to share the announcement. Take a look at the official teaser.
