    So many reviews on the internet, go through some of them and you'll find out, if the watch fits your requirements and whether its worth the price or not.

    Have bought OnePlus phone every year but have to say the watch is a fail,I bought it even with the bad reviews as it wasn't too expensive , it is very limited and even the basics don't work, I have given up trying to track workouts with it, basically I use it to tell time and notifications, thats it

    I cannot recommend you at the moment,

    Simple things are missing:

    In the case of music, all songs are displayed together, you cannot play entire albums

    You can create playlists, but it's very difficult, you can't even see which album the song is from.
    You only see the title and the artist.
    For example, if you have 5 albums from one artist, you cannot assign the songs to the correct album

    There is also no simple calendar. You can only find today's day.
    No monthly calendar.

    I hope that there will be something with updates.
    But currently no buy recommendation

    It's a beautiful piece of hardware, but OnePlus has missed the mark for a functional smartwatch, If you want a basic timepiece, with a quality hardware build, go for it, and cross your fingers that they workout all the bugs to make it a competitive smartwatch....

    I think it's worth it, if you look at it as a fitness watch instead of a smart watch. Because it can't be classified as a fully fledged smart watch...
    The simpliest way to look at the watch is a mi band in a watch case.

    No it's rubbish and nearly every review out there will tell you the same. There are loads of watches on the market for half the price and twice as good.

    I would say the best option is a Mi Band for 1/3 the price.

    It can't even track a bike ride yet! and there are still issues with step count accuracy... You can't even count on it as a simple fitness band....

    I haven't tracked a bike ride yet. But walks and runs are pretty accurate on B65 update.

    I've gotta get a few more walks and runs in, but I'm seeing less distance being recorded when I compare it to my Galaxy Watch 2.... The OnePlus watch hardware build is fantastic.... But they've missed the mark with the software ...

    On a typical 5k run for me the watch says 4.96km

    I think they'll work out the bugs... I'm a big fan , and for the price, it's a great looking timepiece!

    Well, I believe this YouTuber channel called Unbox therapy could give you some depth of information whether to buy it or not. Link👉 OnePlus Watch Unboxing... - YouTube

    I think it's better to ask community members who bought the watch with own money instead of watching YouTube videos... Because the reviewer's always have a contact with OnePlus when making the video. And they can't always tell the whole truth.

    I'm generally getting about a week of battery life, with sleep tracking and smart all-day heart monitoring, but I'm not using GPS very much and don't play music on it. And I don't use the always-on display; the arm-raise gesture is quite reliable and sufficient for me.

    Are you using the B.65 update yet? The measurements I was previously getting were consistently short by about a third. I've only done one measured walk since upgrading to B.65, but the distance reported by the watch and by Runkeeper on my phone were essentially identical for that one.
