After smartphones, headphones and televisions, OnePlus is now apparently planning to introduce its own smartwatch in the near future.

There have been reports for a long time that the Chinese manufacturer OnePlus is also interested in its own smartwatch. As 91Mobiles reports, the "Infocomm Media Development Authority", IMDA for short, has discovered certification for a OnePlus Watch.

Unfortunately, this entry in the IMDA does not allow any concrete reference to the technical specs of the smartwatch. It only shows that it is a watch with the model name W301GB. The existence of the certification, however, indicates that it will be presented in the near future.

The timing is also interesting because Oppo - which is part of the BBK Electronics Group along with OnePlus - had recently launched its Oppo Watch. So here one could have found possible inspiration for the OnePlus Watch, along with the necessary technology.

OnePlus Watch: former employee speaks up

OnePlus CEO Carl Pei had admitted in the past that his company was already working on a Smartwatch in 2015. In 2016, Pei even showed some design drafts on Twitter:

In line with the new rumours, TechRadar was now also able to talk to a former OnePlus employee. He said that the company had already been actively interested in a smartwatch for a year. The ex-employee did not want to give further details. However, the statement also indicates that OnePlus is serious about the smartwatch.

However, this is not a concrete date for an introduction or even a guarantee that OnePlus will introduce a smartwatch. However, TechRadar is positive and can, for example, imagine a presentation in connection with the announcement of a OnePlus 8T or further OnePlus Nord models.
