Wear OS is a Google's Smartwatch OS, based around Android. People have complained about its limited updates and short battery life, but that is potentially not stopping Samsung from releasing it in its upcoming smartwatch. There are quite a few smartwatches that now will run Wear OS, but some hardware manufacturers are not going to be taking it on board.
The CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau, has confirmed on the OnePlus forums the OnePlus Watch won't run Wear OS. There is no news as to exactly what OS it will be running so this could be something exciting to look forward to in the smartwatch arena.
The OnePlus 9 and OnePlus Watch launch event is said to take place on March the 23rd, confirmed by the company themselves. That's the same day as the Black Shark 4 launch, and rumours are that an Apple event is also taking place, so it is going to be a busy day.
The watch is said to have an affordable price point with a fashionable design and a best in class user experience, those are the words spoken by OnePlus themselves, however, it all seems a bit exaggerated.
We are still waiting to see if there are any more updates.
