OnePlus Watch Review: Inaccurate and error
In the end, the clock animations are pretty clear. Slide a notification and it doesn’t slip, but it immediately disappears into the void. The user interface does not look polished and it is a bit satisfying to interact with the clock.
Inconsistent … Everything
The first time I saw problems with my ability to keep track of the clock was when I wore it on a beautiful Saturday morning when I was walking a little farther from Williamsburg (Brooklyn) to Times Square in Manhattan. It’s a long walk! Well, not according to the OnePlus Watch.
On most of the trips, he was telling me exactly my steps. Halfway through, the clock … reset. Those with more than 15,000 steps on the clock became about 7,000. I checked the OnePlus Health Assistant app on my phone and it showed me the exact numbers that matched the data in the Google Fit app. At the end of the day, the number of steps displayed on the Clock was dramatically lower than what appeared in both mobile apps. It has never been properly synchronized.
Activity monitoring features and Apple Watch Series 5, I found the OnePlus step count to be inaccurate. In another long walk I had a watch and a phone in my pocket on my wrist, the Apple Watch counted 8,735 steps and my phone’s Google Fit app displayed 9,248, while the OnePlus Watch had me running at just 4,340.
I had problems with the clock when it automatically detects my rides (it seems to automatically detect rides or races). At first, he never noticed anything. I then switched from a Nokia phone to a phone OnePlus 9, … he still hadn’t noticed anything. Until this last weekend the “Outdoor Walk” activity started automatically, even before I left my house and it was over 15 minutes later. When I stopped for a coffee at least the break did a good job.
The same thing happened with the reminder movements. It means it reminds me of getting up and moving my watch, however, it started working last weekend. (And yes, I’m pretty sedentary, so should I’ve seen the alert until then.)
Heart rate monitoring is accurate until an activity begins. I regularly found that the OnePlus Watch recorded a higher minute rate (and a manual test) than the Apple Watch. He also said that I burned more calories and traveled farther, and that SpO2 data was always a lower percentage than my reliable fingertip oximeter. Given the inaccurate counting of steps and self-detection issues, I have had difficulty relying on any of this data.
There are currently only 14 activities you can manually follow (and it only detects walking and running automatically), but OnePlus says the May air update will provide more than 110 types of workouts.
It’s good to hear that, but considering all the problems I’ve had, you’d better buy a similar price Fitbit load 4 or Garmin Venu Sq from trusted brands that have been tracking and improving data for years. That’s the most important thing in a fitness tracker, and the OnePlus Watch lags far behind.
Updates over the air can solve many of these problems. In fact, OnePlus released an update on Monday of this week — while I was writing this review — in fact — it adds more clock faces and claims to fix some bugs, such as not-to-disappear notifications on the phone, along with self-improvement. detect. I paused my work and took another long walk, as he did no the notifications that I automatically detect and slide on the clock are still on my phone. I am not optimistic. OnePlus has said that the other issues I have encountered will be fixed in another update coming this month, but I can only test what I have in front of me.
OnePlus hard fan? I’m still waiting for the OnePlus Watch 2. Hopefully it can regain my confidence.
