The first evidence that a OnePlus smartwatch is in the works surfaced a couple of weeks ago and many were speculating that it would borrow the design from Oppo's recently released Watch. However, a renowned leakster thinks otherwise and he's usually on point when it comes to OnePlus-related rumors.
Max J. posted a picture with a hint that the future OnePlus Watch will adopt a classical, circular design, which dismisses the rumors that the Oppo Watch will serve as a base for OnePlus' smart wearable. Still, the company might borrow a design from another brand under the BBK umbrella and that's vivo.
Many dont seem to understand it so I clarify it. The Watch is circular.

Only recently, a live photo of an alleged vivo Watch popped up so it's not too far-fetched that OnePlus' and vivo's smartwatches will share the same design, even chassis. Nonetheless, the rumor mill has only started so we are curious to see how this unfolds.
