OnePlus Watch users are getting a new update that introduces many new workout modes and takes the tally to 110. These workout modes were promised during the launch event of the OnePlus Watch in March, and an update was awaited since then. OnePlus Watch users are finally getting it with the firmware version B.52. OnePlus says the OTA update will reach a small percentage of users first, and a broader rollout to more users will commence in the next few days.
OnePlus Watch update B.52 changelog
All users who own a OnePlus Watch can check for the latest update on their OnePlus Health app. The changelog suggests that the new B.52 update brings the total number of workout modes to 110 as promised at launch. There's also a new marathon running function to help users train better for an upcoming marathon. The OnePlus Watch's latest update also adds an interesting AI Outfit watch face that essentially scans the users outfit and brings an appropriate watch face to match it. The changelog also includes a useful tip which says to tap the screen on any watch face to see a hidden function.
OnePlus advises users to make sure that the power of the OnePlus Watch is more than 40 percent before upgrading. It is also recommended to keep your watch and mobile phone close to each other and keep the Bluetooth connection active during the upgrade process.
