The design is simple and classy, although, it is quite sizable at 46mm. However, the screen is seamlessly curved and coupled with the round shape, you don’t really feel the big size. There are two dials. on the side, one of which has ‘ONEPLUS’ engraved on it.
The standard model which is called the ‘Classic Edition’ watch has a stainless steel finish with different options of the easily replaceable moonlight silver and midnight black rubber strap. On the other hand, there is the Limited Edition with a cobalt alloy body which somewhat has a warm golden finish and it comes with a leather strap.
As stated earlier, the smartwatch is round which minimizes the fairly large size and makes it comfy in the hand. According to OnePlus, each watch is hand polished and the Limited Edition with a cobalt frame is so difficult to work with that half of it often don’t gets approved for customer use.

There is a 1.39-inch display which is curved into the watch frame. The screen has a 326ppi pixel density plus and an AMOLED panel to boot. OnePlus offers 50 different watch faces for you to pick from and a nice sapphire glass on its Limited edition that makes the display even cooler.
