The OnePlus Watch did not receive positive feedback from tech critics as it was found to be lacking on different fronts. The team promised to work on those issues and has even started rolling out software updates. It has now pushed a new software update that brings the much-awaited Always-on Display (AOD) functionality.
It is a feature that many talked about at the time of early reviews and has finally been added. It is important to note that while the OnePlus Watch is now capable of offering Always-on Display, the feature also results in battery life getting reduced to half. But if you are someone who wants to have all the relevant information right there on the display without the need for waking it up, you can definitely give it a try.
Here is the complete official changelog for the update:
- Add Always-on Display dial*
- Remote Control Camera function
- Add Marathon workout
- Optimize system UI details
- Fix known issues and improve system stability.
It is an over-the-air update and should arrive on your OnePlus Watch anytime soon. It should be noted that this is a gradual rollout which means a few select users will receive it first and then, it will be expanded to all other users.
