OnePlus has launched a limited edition of the OnePlus Watch, that debuted in March this year. The new model, renamed the OnePlus Watch Cobalt Limited Edition, was launched in China for OnePlus’ international markets.
The limited edition OnePlus watch features a cobalt alloy frame in the middle. According to OnePlus, this is the first time the alloy has been utilized in a smartwatch. Additionally, it promises a more high durability, as it is twice as hard as stainless steel.
Apart from that, the OnePlus Watch Cobalt Limited Edition features sapphire glass on the front and a handmade vegan leather strap for a more premium appearance. In terms of design, the smartwatch features a similar round frame to the standard variant, but with a gold finish on the alloy frame for a more refined appearance.
OnePlus Watch Cobalt Limited Edition price
The OnePlus Watch Cobalt Limited Edition is priced at CNY 1,599 (roughly Rs 18,200). This is nearly 60% more than the OnePlus Watch, which was launched in March. It debuted at CNY 999 (Rs 11,400), with a price of Rs 14,999 in India.
Thus, if a similar hike occurs in India, the OnePlus Watch Cobalt Limited Edition will be available for around Rs 24,000.
However, the company has yet to announce the limited edition’s availability in the company’s global markets. For the time being, its sale will be restricted to China and will begin on May 1
