On its Twitter account, Unbox Therapy, a famous YouTube channel, posted an exclusive image of the OnePlus Watch. And the least we can say is that the little air of resemblance to the Galaxy Watch Active 2 seems obvious.
The OnePlus conference is fast approaching. On March 23, 2021, the Chinese brand will unveil with great fanfare its OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9R which will be its new flagship for the rest of 2021. But the event will not only give pride of place to smartphones. A connected watch will be there.
This smartwatch is known as the OnePlus Watch, which has already been the subject of several leaks in recent months. Information about it remains scant, but sufficient to interest the specialized press. What we know: the dial will be circular while WearOS has been ruled out by the leaders.
Like an air of Galaxy Watch …
A few days before the appointment, the Unbox Therapy twitter account – its eponymous YouTube channel has nearly 18 million subscribers – revealed an exclusive photo of the smartwatch in question. As you can see, the product is reminiscent of another in many ways.

In the idea, the OnePlus Watch indeed resembles the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2. The circular dial necessarily reinforces this aesthetic rapprochement, but not only. Upon closer inspection, the OnePlus watch appears to sport tactile borders which would then simulate the effect of a rotating ring. If so, then it would take up the idea of the Korean product.
A small difference all the same
Let us remain cautious about this calculation which is based on a simple visual analysis of the device. A small difference with the Galaxy Watch Active 2 can however be highlighted: on its edge, the OnePlus Watch accommodates two oval physical buttons, against an oval button and another round on the Samsung watch.
In the photo published by Unbox Therapy, the tocante seems to benefit from a silicone strap which gives it a sporty appearance. As such, the features dedicated to physical activities should not be missing on this one.
