After launching OnePlus Watch globally last month, OnePlus has started rolling out a new software update with version B.40. Currently, it is rolling out the update for customers in the US and Canada and improves the functionality of the smartwatch.
OnePlus Watch Update: What’s New?
According to the Announcement posting on OnePlus forums, the update improves GPS performance and activity tracking accuracy while walking and running. Also, OnePlus has optimized its heart rate monitoring algorithm through this update.
Another change is with the notification app icons for frequently used apps. Apart from this, the update also improves wake-to-wake functionality and includes various stability improvements and bug fixes for the OnePlus Watch.
One of the most common complaints about the first OnePlus smartwatch is the lack of an always-on display. To address this, OnePlus has reiterated that AOD will arrive in a future update.
In future updates, OnePlus will also allow the ability to use the smartwatch as a remote control. This way you can use the OnePlus Watch to control the camera on Android phones, running Marshmallow and above. Other upcoming features include a 12-hour time format, 4 new languages: German, Italian, Spanish, and Polish, availability of more than 110 training modes, and an AI watch face. However, users will have to wait a long time to use these functions.
As mentioned above, the new OTA update is available only to OnePlus Watch users in the US and Canada. However, the company promises to expand its availability to other countries in the coming days. Therefore, the wait will not be long before all OnePlus Watch users benefit from the improvements introduced in the update.
