OnePlus has released the latest update for the OnePlus Watch, which includes the device’s long-awaited always-on display mode, which was missing when it first launched in April. However, being able to see the time at all times on the OnePlus smartwatch comes at a high cost, with the company warning that using the new mode will reduce battery life by half.
The release of the always-on display was surprisingly quick for OnePlus, which announced the feature’s inclusion just two weeks ago. According to the company’s blog, the B.48 update with the new feature will be available to a “small percentage” of users first, with a wider rollout following in the coming days.
The B.48 update, in addition to enabling the always-on display, adds the ability to use the OnePlus Watch as a remote camera button, a new “Marathon” workout mode, and other improvements, optimizations, and bug fixes.
While the new display option remedies one of the One Plus Watch’s glaring absences, it’s a tougher deal for users because of a large hit on battery life (especially because the battery life was a highlight for the watch).
The complete changelog of OnePlus Watch B.48 is as follows:
Set the display dial to Always-on*
Function of Remote Control Camera
Add workout marathon
Optimize system user information
Fix known problems and improve the stability of the system.
*When the Always-on dial is activated, the screen continues to be activated. This leads to higher energy consumption. Approximately half the battery life is going to be reduced.
