    Hey everyone,

    We're now rolling out the B.70 update for the OnePlus Watch. This update will be incremental. The OTA update will reach a small percentage of users first, and then we'll begin a broader rollout in the next few days.

    • Fix the pairing problem: improve the compatibility of the watch system, and solve the problem of pairing failure with Android 12 mobile phones;
    • Spotify optimization: update the UI and icon of some pages;
    • Spotify optimization: Improve the experience of playing Podcasts;
    • Spotify optimization: improve performance and optimize the response speed of page interaction;
    • Music controller optimization: By default, when playing music, automatically enter the music control panel function. Users can manually turn on this function in the health app.
    Please make sure that the power of the watch is more than 40% before upgrading;
    Please keep your watch and mobile phone close and keep the Bluetooth connection during the upgrade process.

    We look forward to hearing your continued feedback in the comments below. In addition to OTA updates mentioned above, we will continue to work on software optimization to further improve the OnePlus Watch. Again, your suggestions and bug reports matter so much to us. If you have any comments on the OnePlus Watch or the OnePlus Health App user experience, please leave a comment in this thread.

    1. You meant B.70.

    2. Please fix the slow GPS startup issue. It takes up to ten minutes to get the first location fix because the ephemeris data in the watch is not being updated (according to the message that is displayed).

    3. Please add a new watch face with complications like "Big Numbers" that has an indication of the seconds - either a moving dot around the circumference like "Metropolitan" or numeric.

    Hi. Please add more watchfaces because for now most of them looks very sily. Or just release tool for their creation - we will make it ourselves.

    Could be, I suppose, although I have a hard time imagining what kind of hardware problem would have that effect - the GPS works fine once it gets its first fix. I think it's much more likely that it's some kind of issue with permissions or settings or software versions. Based on others' reports and a survey I did a few months ago, the problem is pretty widespread. It's interesting to note, though, that there are at least a few users who don't have the stale ephemeris problem.

    Could it be due to coverage issues in your location? Do you get the same issue everywhere?

    Hello, I had bought this watch because of customs replies on Whatsapp. It is so hard to add that feature in the app? Let us make our own replies

    The music control function worked for me since day one. I read the new update to add functionality to still have music control but have it not be default screen Everytime you look at your watch. This new update says it's configurable. Is it regarding simply turning the function on/off or am I missing the option to turn on and not have it take over clock face by default.
