Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 was one of the best smartwatches so far, but now it seems that its real contender has arrived in the form of the OnePlus Watch 2. After a three-year silence, OnePlus has made a comeback in the smartwatch segment with its second-generation watch called the OnePlus Watch 2.

This time, OnePlus seems too serious with the latest offering, as the OnePlus Watch 2 packs significant upgrades that could go up against current smartwatches like the Galaxy Watch 6 series and the Pixel Watch 2. So let’s dive in, and check, whether the OnePlus Watch 2 is a real opponent for Samsung Galaxy Watch 6.

First of all, the Galaxy Watch 6 from Samsung and OnePlus Watch 2, both run on Wear OS, the Google-made operating system for smartwatches that is designed to run seamlessly alongside Android phones.

OnePlus Watch 2 comes with a unique Dual-Engine Architecture, which consists of the Snapdragon W5 and the BES 2700 chipsets. The BES 2700 and RTOS handle background activity and daily tasks, while, Snapdragon W5 and Wear OS deal with heavier tasks, including running Wear OS apps.

On the other side, the Galaxy Watch 6 is powered by the Exynos W930 chipset and offers a faster 1.4GHz processing speed. However, one useful feature of Galaxy Watch 6 is the temperature sensor, which helps users predict ovulation dates, track sleep, and more, is missing in the newly released OnePlus Watch 2.

Galaxy Watch 6 provides written insight into sleep stages and tips on how to improve your circadian rhythm. While, the OnePlus Watch 2 also offers sleep tracking, including monitoring your different levels of sleep, sleep quality, sleep breathing rate, snorting risk, and sleep blood oxygen levels.

Moving further, the OnePlus Watch 2 packs a large 500 mAh battery that can deliver up to 100 hours. It can also last up to 48 hours with heavy use or up to 12 days in the Power Save Mode. While, the battery of Galaxy Watch 6 is quite unsatisfactory, as it includes a 300 mAh battery that offers up to 40 hours of use with the always-on display off or up to 30 hours with the always-on display off.

The OnePlus Watch 2 offers 2GB RAM with up to 32GB of storage. While Galaxy Watch 6 includes 2GB RAM with 16GB of storage. At last, it can be said that both smartwatches are quite accurate in themselves and are capable of giving tough competition to each other.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro

Samsung appears to be simplifying the naming scheme of the wearable Exynos chip. Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 7 is expected to be equipped with the first 3nm chipset, which would be called Exynos W1000.

The Galaxy Watch 7 might use Exynos W1000 chipset, claims SamInsider (via SamMobile). Samsung’s first Wear OS smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch 4, debuted Exynos W920, which also powers the Galaxy Watch 5.

Last year, the company introduced the Galaxy Watch 6, which features the new Exynos W930. Judging from the previous naming, it was assumed that the Watch 7 series would have an Exynos W940 processor.

However, the South Korean tech giant apparently decided to simplify its Exynos line. If the report is correct, Exynos W1000 will power the upcoming Wear OS smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 7, Watch 7 Pro, and Watch 7 Classic.
