OnePlus Watch update adds Always-On-Display, Remote Control Camera and more

Since launching their first smartwatch, OnePlus has been steadily adding features to the OnePlus Watch, adding more features every time. The latest B.48 update adds a much-requested feature to the OnePlus Watch – Always-on-Display, along with some other features.

While the Always-on-display was a popular feature request, enabling it does come at a cost to the battery life. According to OnePlus, the battery life for the Watch is expected to be reduced by half, which should be around a week of regular use. For active users, it will be reduced to just half a week.  Having a remote camera control is also great for scenarios like taking group pictures.

The complete changelog for the software update is as follows –

  • Add Always-on Display dial
  • Remote Control Camera function
  • Add Marathon workout
  • Improvements
    • Optimize system UI details
    • Fix known issues and improve system stability.

As always, the update can be installed via the OnePlus Health app and the Watch must have a minimum of 40% charge before the update process can start.
