The post on OnePlus website mentioned that the smartwatch features a stainless-steel chassis and sapphire crystal glass, adding that it will offer an extended battery endurance of up to 100 hours in “full Smart Mode,” which is more than what's offered on Apple Watch Series 9, and which delivers a battery lifespan of two and a half days while on its low-power mode. 

Some focus was also observed on the ecosystem building as the post also underscored company's recently launched products such as the foldable OnePlus Open, OnePlus Buds Pro 2, and OnePlus Tab. However, no ecosystem features were reflected in the post. 

“Meticulous health monitoring” was also seen, hinting at the inclusion of some big health tracking upgrades.
