The OnePlus smartwatch has officially been revealed

The mystery OnePlus smartwatch that was scrapped before launch has finally been revealed.

OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has lifted the lid on early sketches for a planned smartwatch that was eventually scrapped. Pei posted the concepts to Twitter, revealing a product that will now never be available to buy.

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal earlier this month, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said that the company had “completed the design”, but “still decided to scrap it”, saying that the company wanted to stay “focused”.

As is evident from the designs, the watch appears to sport a similar build to the Moto 360, and would have featured a removable strap. It’s not clear, however, whether or not the device would have run on Google’s Android Wear.

In February this year, TrustedReviews revealed that OnePlus – creator of the recently launched OnePlus 3 – had also scrapped a fitness tracker that was in development as far back as October 2014. The Chinese phone maker had plans to launch device, but killed it off just one month before launch so the firm could focus on its “core strengths”.
