What you need to know

  • The first official render of the OnePlus Watch has surfaced.
  • Just as rumored, the smartwatch will have a round display.
  • It will be unveiled alongside the OnePlus 9 series phones on March 23.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed earlier this week that the company's upcoming smartwatch will run RTOS, and not Google's Wear OS. Ahead of its big launch event next week, OnePlus today revealed the design of its first smartwatch in collaboration with popular YouTube unboxing and tech channel Unbox Therapy.

As expected, the OnePlus Watch has a round display and features a similar design to the OPPO Watch RX, which was announced in China last year. The watch appears to have two buttons on the right side, with the OnePlus logo embedded on the one on the top. In addition to the Black color variant seen in the render above, the smartwatch is also expected to be offered in a Silver option as well.

As revealed by tipster Ishan Agarwal recently, the OnePlus Watch could come with a 46mm dial and is tipped to offer a wide range of fitness-tracking features. Just like the best Android smartwatches, OnePlus' first smartwatch is expected to feature an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.

The OnePlus Watch will also offer automatic workout detection, 4GB of built-in storage, sleep tracking, heart-rate monitoring, as well as an SpO2 sensor to measure blood oxygen levels. You'll even be able to use the smartwatch as a remote control for your OnePlus TV. Its most impressive feature, however, is said to be Warp Charge support. A mere 20-minute charge will give you up to one week of battery life. Its pricing, however, still remains a mystery.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Apple Adds Support for Live Activities to Shazam

Apple today added support for Live Activities in Shazam, its free music discovery and identification app. Shazam's Live Activities keep the user updated when searching for music in the background, which is particularly useful when multitasking or identifying songs in other apps . The last significant update to Shazam arrived in January, allowing users to identify songs from other apps while listening with headphones. Apple acquired Shazam in 2018, and has been gradually bringing the app into closer alignment with ‌ Apple Music ‌ ever since, offering trials to the streaming service through the app and the ability to sync Shazams directly to ‌‌Apple Music‌‌. Shazam can be downloaded from the App Store for free . It can be accessed through the Control Center on ‌‌ iPhone ‌‌ and ‌‌ iPad ‌‌, through ‌ Siri ‌ commands, or on the Mac, as well as via widgets.

Review: Anker's Latest 3-in-1 Power Bank is a Versatile On-the-Go Powerhouse

Popular accessory brand Anker has just launched a new 10K version of its 3-in-1 power bank that offers up to 30 watts of charging power, a convenient display to quickly view exact charge status, an integrated USB-C cable for both input and output, and built-in folding prongs to recharge directly from a power outlet. I've recently been testing one of these Anker power banks out, and it has become a must-have accessory for my gear bag. Competitively priced at $44.99, the 10,000 mAh capacity means I can charge up my iPhone 15 Pro Max more than one and a half times while on the go, which is plenty for a long day out or even a weekend trip where easy access to power might be iffy. And the 30-watt charging speed means it'll charge my devices up quickly, meaning spending less time with my phone awkwardly tethered to a power bank while I'm out and about. A quick charge during a lunch or dinner is more than enough to keep my iPhone topped off for the remainder of the day. Th
