With the new OnePlus update, the OnePlus Watch brings the Always-On display mode. The company has AOD on its latest OxygenOS 11 update, and from now on, all the new OnePlus AMOLED-packed phones will come with it.
It is no surprise that the ‘Always-On‘ display mode has already arrived on smartphones. Moto X was the first to introduce this feature. Then Samsung and other companies in the OLED series used the feature to make much more sense on AMOLED panels.
The OnePlus Watch has a solid battery life with a week’s worth of use, as claimed by the company. A 20-minute charge could do the job.
The company said:
THE ONE THING WE UNANIMOUSLY SEEMED TO AGREE UPON IS THAT HAVING TO CHARGE OUR SMARTWATCH DAILY REALLY AFFECTED OUR EXPERIENCE.
IF WE FORGOT TO CHARGE IT OVERNIGHT, A FEW MINUTES OF CHARGING BEFORE WE HEAD OUT JUST ISN’T ENOUGH AND THE BATTERY DIES LATER IN THE DAY.
WE’VE HEARD MANY USERS REQUEST THE ALWAYS-ON DISPLAY,
WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING AT THINGS LIKE HOW IT IMPACTS POWER CONSUMPTION. WE ARE EVALUATING THE POSSIBILITY TO BRING THIS FEATURE IN A FUTURE OTA.
The new feature may uplift the power consumption by almost 50%, which could bring a serious hit to the battery life. The same feature is also available on smartwatches, including the Apple Watch Series 6.
