OnePlus Watch Update Adds Always-on Display, Remote Camera Shutter Button

OnePlus launched its first smartwatch in early March. The OnePlus Watch was not well received due to a lack of features. One of them is the Always-on Display, which the Chinese giant promised will arrive in a future update. Well, that day is finally here.

A new update is rolling out for the OnePlus Watch. It brings with it the long-awaited always-on display, a remote camera shutter button, and more. The update carries the version number B.48, according to a recent post on community forum. But some users report receiving the B.49 update for the smartwatch.

With this update, the biggest addition to the OnePlus Watch comes in the form of an always-on display (AOD). You will now see a toggle to activate this feature in the watch settings. While OnePlus now offers an always-on display feature to users, it cautions that using AOD will greatly increase power consumption. The company, in the forum post, says that OnePlus Watch battery life will be cut by almost half (7 days) compared to 14-day battery life advertised.

Now, you can also use your OnePlus Watch as a camera remote control to capture group selfies with ease. The company has optimized the system’s user interface and other known issues, as well as improved system stability. Did you get the update? Do you like the always-on screen?
