Both OPPO and Oneplus are subsidiaries of the Chinese-based BBK group so there is good reason to believe that, and as recommended by many users, the OPPO watch is fully compatible with Oneplus phones. Though still shrouded in mystery, many experts believe that the Oneplus watch will be in line with the OPPO watch design.
It has a bright, responsive AMOLED screen, Google Assistant support, and even native sleep monitoring. Though the sleep tracking isn’t as detailed as you will find on premium Apple Watches. Speaking of Apple, OPPO watch has an uncanny similarity to Apple Watches.
To woo the users who can’t stick to one design, the OPPO watch allows for swappable straps. You can buy it from the OPPO store or can attach third-party straps with the watch.
In terms of fitness features, the watch only covers the basics and it doesn’t always deliver the most reliable data. Heart rate tracking is the most reliable feature of the smartwatch.
The battery life of the watch is a real bummer and OPPO later released an update in the Google OS to extend the battery life. The problem is less with the hardware and more with the sluggish, space-hungry Wear OS. One key benefit is Oppo’s VOOC Flash Charger that fully revitalized the battery in about an hour.
Battery: up to 7 days in smartwatch mode; up to 24 hours in GPS mode
Water and dust resistance: 5ATM
When it comes to fitness and extreme sports, Garmin smartwatches are unparalleled. You will get the most accurate and in-depth data off the watch.
Apart from data accuracy, it is lauded for its lightweight, sleek design. You won’t feel it on your wrist, and thanks to waterproof casing you won’t have to take it off frequently.
Though touted as the smartwatch for runners, it doesn’t have the bells and whistles of expensive versions like Forerunner 945.The features and the capability of the watch allows you to track your fitness at the mid-range level, more than casual fitness runner tacking and less than athlete level tracking. Complementary features include sweat-proof design and rugged built up.
There is a separately released music version of the watch, but if you are not a great fan of streaming platforms like spotify and deezer, you can exploit its 4GB storage to satisfy your needs.
Display: 1.3-inch color LCD display (240 x 240 px)
Battery: 6 days
Water and dust Resistance: IP68 Rated
Weight: 1.33 Oz
Connectivity: Bluetooth, GPS
Garmin Venu Sq is an affordable smartwatch but it misses on many important features offered by the prior released Garmin Venu (circular Watch). If you are looking for a well-rounded fitness watch for your Oneplus phone, this one should be duly considered.
It offers a decent battery life of 6 days which is slashed down to a single day if you vigorously use the GPS option. The always-on display feels adds to the convenience of the users. However, the cutting-corner move by Garmin to ditch the AMOLED display to keep the watch within range is not welcomed by many users.
Other features you will miss out on are animated workouts and an altimeter to track your elevation. But they seriously are not a big deal for many buyers out there.
If you are buying the watch for purely fitness goals, Garmin allows you to attach add-ons with the smartwatch to get better data accuracy. You can pair it up with Garmin’s new HRM Pro and Polar’s H9 chest strap without issue to get pin-point accuracy while tracking heart rate.
The watch is swim friendly and comes in a variety of colors. One good feature is the quick-release bands that make it nice and easy to remove the 20mm bands. You can choose bands from garmins official store or can attach third party bands with the smartwatch.
Huawei is yet another Chinese brand that competes with pioneers like Apple, Garmin and Samsung. Their smartwatch though are notorious for unapologetically copying above mentioned brands.
The company attracts users by offering feature-rich gadgets at cut rate price. So if you are looking for a big, feature-laden smartwatch for your thick wrist, Huawei GT2 is a suitable choice.
The key strength of the watch is its 1.39-inch AMOLED display that offers a premium resolution of 454 x 454 px and a brightness of 1,000 nits, which makes it decently bright and sharp.
To polish overall design, the company has adopted a 3D glass screen to create a bezel-less design, with curved edges which merge into the casing.
The fitness features are in abundance as you have everything covered from blood saturation and basic heart rate tracking.
Of all features, the battery life is the outlier. No other watch can beat Huawei products as they all are designed to give maximum battery performance. In this particular watch, Huawei added a Kirin A1 chipset, which includes intelligent power-saving technology.

Best Smartwatch For Oneplus Phones: Buying Guide
The first and foremost thing to make sure of is the compatibility of the watch. If you own an outdated model by Oneplus, better not invest too much on the watch. Old smartphones (2-3 years old models) might have poor battery life and limited specs. As you will control the watch via an Android app on the Oneplus phone, it will take a heavy toll on the battery performance.
Secondly, whatever OS you choose for the watch, make sure that it has a sizable developer community so you don’t miss out on important apps. Wear OS, Tizen, Fitbit OS and Garmin OS are all popular operating systems you will find on most of the watches. Wear OS has the largest community, though it is notorious for poor battery performance and sluggish performance on the watch.
Next, you will have to assess the watch per design, style and performance features. The watch should fit your wrist size, available in multiple colors and have a comfortable strap. Buttons on the watch are pretty outmoded as most of the navigation would be done via responsive touch on screen.
The screen must have advanced features (always-on display) and responsive touch screen. It should be large enough for enhanced visibility. AMOLED screen with more than 400 nit brightness level and high resolution is the gold standard for smartwatch screens.
Also, you should make sure that the oneplus compatible smartwatch meets at least bare minimum standard of ruggedness. Speaking of which, the watch should have a considerable resistance to water and dust. (IP68 and ATM 5 rated watches are perfect for everyday use with respect to water resistance )
Lastly, but most importantly, the watch should last at least one day on a single charge. (that included using all its powerful features like GPS, NFC, and Cellular connectivity on and off.)
