OnePlus' OneWatch leaks in time to impress with circular display, Sapphire glass, and curved battery
Although the OnePlus One was notoriously slow to ship, Chinese startup OnePlus is moving fast indeed. After introducing its "flagship killer" earlier this year, the company is shifting gears towards its first smart-watch - predictably titled the OneWatch. A sketch and webpage screenshot leaked online, giving us an interesting glimpse at what is in no doubt going to become a beautiful timepiece. 

Like the Moto 360, the OneWatch boasts a circular OLED display - protected by sapphire glass, no less, and the watch face is protected by titanium borders. The watch has a crown to be configured, and most interestingly, it is said that its leather strap is home to a curved battery which can be wirelessly charged.

The OneWatch appears to be comparatively smaller than the Moto 360 and other Android Wear gadgets, which is good news for those preferring more discrete watches. Mind you, so far nothing suggests the OneWatch is another Android Wear device. Chances are equal that OnePlus will opt either for Google's watch-centric Android build, or for a home-cooked Android ROM. Perhaps the company can also get the Cyanogen team on board. We'll see.

At this point, the launch date and other details are amiss, but if the OneWatch is in advanced-enough stages, we ought to hear more about it pretty soon.

I bet this will be another one of their invite only purchase. If so, they're shooting a bigger hole in their foot.

Lol no, there is no monopoly on round watches, lets not go Apple here. All is fair in the Android space, whoever is the best deserves to win.

WristWatches have existed for hundreds of years, there have been so many designs that its impossible to make a unique design of a watch. You either go round or rectangular, and thats it. With few weird ugly exceptions like triangle and few other designs.

''It's about time'' ???? lolwut

What an ultra-Lame, generic-a$$ slogan that sounds like it was lifted from a cheesy Schwarzenegger movie

LOSE the stupid invite system if you want consumers to take you seriously

Unfortunately, the only way to buy it is to make a video of you smashing your OnePlus One phone and then you will have a CHANCE to win an invite to buy this watch.

IT is official: For order you have to place an ad of your self on the advertisement hoarding right next it one-minus-one CEO house. If he is impressed you will get an invite to register for the product and after that if you are lucky enough you would be invited to pay for it.

Pretty much trolling from PA, because Pete said the Qi technology is a immature technology for their phones so why would they add Qi technology on a smart watch

Cyanogenmod watches... Cyanogenmod is good on phones, I am exited to see Cyanogen Wear, or whateverit'scalled, but I would still be happy if it was Android wear (I have a G watch and I like the software)
