OnePlus OneWatch, The OneWatch To Solve It All
OnePlus is currently known as the maker of the elusive OnePlus One. Why elusive? The OnePlus One cannot be purchased by just anyone in any store, you have to get an official invite from OnePlus to buy the smartphone and you have to get it online. No way of getting it in a store then. Adds also to the exclusivity value of this device. From the looks of things as well the One looks to be quite a performer compared to the other high-end smartphones in the industry. Soon enough though OnePlus will be making an accessory that might go well with the One, one that you can wear; OnePlus OneWatch.
The OnePlus OneWatch is basically a wearable device most probably designed to complement the One smartphone. If the photo leaks from BGR is right, we would have something with sort of a similar design to the Motorola Moto360, rounded, and from the looks of it, classy too. Now just what do we mean when we talk about solving stuff. Actually the OneWatch will have one feature that other smartwatches currently in the market do not have; wireless charging. If the reports are right the OneWatch will have the Qi Wireless Charging receiver in the watch which will just charge when you put it atop a Qi charging mat. Convenience of charging at its best. Sure it may not be the most efficient way of charging any device but for a watch it does make sense. Remember that the current smartwatches have their charging connector pins behind the watch itself and it gets rusty after some mild usage. That rust will cause issues in charging the devices and therefore wireless charging in this case actually makes plenty of sense. Also if the reports are right this watch will feature a OLED circular display which, in our minds will look indefinitely stunning. Cannot wait for that.
The only remaining issue is that no one actually yet know what operating system this smartwatch will sport. Now the most sensible choice for OnePlus is to go with Android Wear for this one. Keeping in mind that the OnePlus One is running on Android, it makes sense. But the OnePlus One is not really running on Android, rather they are running on the CyanogenMod based on Android. Also by using the Android Wear platform OnePlus would have to allow Google a certain amount of control in the way they build this amazing piece of kit. However, the guys over at Cyanogen are pretty talented in modifying operating systems to their liking and customising them any way they want so they may start tinkering with the Android Wear too. If that actually happens OnePlus just might go Cyanogen as well on this one. It seems like the only sensible way of doing it no?
