It has been a few weeks since the OnePlus Watch launch which got fans excited about the wearable but that did not last long. The smartwatch received negative reviews from almost all well-known tech critics. The team is now working on fixing those issues as much as possible through software updates and make the watch more usable.
The first OnePlus Watch update has been announced and it largely focuses on issue fixes and improvements. It is an over-the-air (OTA) rollout that begins in the United States and Canada. The announcement says that the rollout will expand to other countries "in the coming days".
Here are all the improvements included in the update:
- Improved GPS performance
- Improved accuracy of activity tracking (walking and running)
- Optimized heart rate monitoring algorithm
- Enabled notification app icons for the most frequently used apps
- Improved raise-to-wake function
- Optimized notification syncing algorithm
- Fixed some known bugs
- Improved system stability
If you are wondering where are new changes and features, OnePlus says these will be added in future updates. One of the biggest changes would be support for Always-on Display (AOD). Other important features that are lined up include remote control support through Android smartphones, four new languages (German, Spanish, Polish, and Italian), enabling all 110+ workout modes, enable AI watch face, and 12-hour time format.
It is important to note that OnePlus has not said anything about when you can expect these future updates to arrive. We can only wait for the time being but whenever there will be an announcement, we will make sure to keep you posted.
