The long-awaited OnePlus Watch is finally here. It sports a round 46mm face that’s designed as a life-ready companion to your OnePlus 9 rather than a replacement. OnePlus touts its watch as an incredible fitness wearable, complete with more than 110 unique activity modes. It also tracks just about all of the metrics you could ask for — heart rate, distance, calories, pace, and more.

The OnePlus watch also packs enough battery to leave Samsung’s Galaxy watches in the dust. It boasts nearly 14 days of battery life in typical use cases. However, if you activate the sleep blood oxygen monitoring feature, you’ll get about five days of use. Extremely active users can achieve about 25 hours of constant GPS monitoring, which is still no small feat. Best of all, you can tap into Warp Charging and recover a week’s worth of charge in just 20 minutes.

Right now, the OnePlus Watch is listed as coming soon, but pricing starts at $159. A premium Cobalt Edition is on its way as well, but we don’t have all of the details for that quite yet.


OnePlus Buds Z

Any new phone deserves matching earbuds, but OnePlus chose not to launch a pair alongside the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro. Instead, your latest option is the true wireless OnePlus Buds Z. They’re still a highly capable pair of earbuds, and you can usually find special discounts on them straight from OnePlus.

As far as features are concerned, you’re looking at Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and an IP55 rating for water and dust resistance. OnePlus also managed to pack punchy 10mm drivers into its pocket-sized earbuds. You’re looking at up to 20 hours of playback when combined with the charging case, and 10 minutes of charging will net you three more hours of music.

You can currently grab the OnePlus Buds Z in either white or Steven Harrington Edition for an extra $10.


Bullets Wireless Z

Another way to go if you want some audio accessories for your OnePlus 9 is with the Bullets Wireless Z earbuds. They offer solid battery life thanks to the wraparound design, and 10 minutes of charging sets you up for 10 hours of playback. OnePlus fit slightly smaller 9.2mm drivers into its Bullets Wireless Z, but you should still be pleased with the sound quality.

All you have to do to pair your OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z to your phone is to separate the magnetic earbuds. Then you should see a prompt on your display and you’re off to the races. Once connected, you can take advantage of Quick Switch to swap between devices at the push of a button. Whenever you need to pause the tunes, pop out the earbuds and connect the magnets again.

Fear not, you fitness junkies, the OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z come with an IP55 rating for water and dust resistance.

Official cases

OnePlus has always been an excellent source of first-party cases, and the OnePlus 9 series is no exception. It offers a pair of bumper cases for both the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro that comes in Karbon and Sandstone textures. If you opt for the Sandstone texture, you’ll also have the choice of Rock Gray or Sandstone Black finishes.

Even though the bumper cases will be the most popular option for most people, the OnePlus 9 Pro Unique bumper is easily the coolest option. It features the droid that first appeared in the OnePlus 5T commercials, reincarnated on the back of your new phone. OnePlus used IMR technology to craft the embossed metallic back panel, which results in a very “Han Solo in Carbonite” finish.

Here are the OnePlus 9 options:

Of course, the first-party OnePlus cases are far from your only options. Check out our complete list of OnePlus 9 series phone cases below:

Gaming triggers

OnePlus has proclaimed its new 9 and 9 Pro as top-tier gaming devices, and it’s come out with some helpful new accessories to match. There’s not much enjoyable about trying to use on-screen controls in action-packed games, so these gaming triggers help to free up some real estate.

You can simply attach one (or both) of the triggers to your new phone and use them for additional commands like reloading, aiming, or launching powerups. OnePlus first teased its new gaming accessories in a OnePlus 9R teaser, which is an India-exclusive device. We don’t yet have all of the details on the OnePlus gaming triggers, but we’re hoping to hear more soon. Unfortunately, you probably won’t be able to use the triggers unless you stick with a slim case, so choose carefully.


Warp 50 wireless charger

One final accessory to consider is the new Warp 50 wireless charger. OnePlus has always been incredibly proud of its charging speeds, but wireless options were off the table for many years. Now, you can send 50W of power coursing through your OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro for a full charge in just 43 minutes.

The Warp 50 charger also works with your phone placed both vertically and horizontally so you can keep streaming Netflix while you charge. If you’re worried about noise, the Warp 50 even offers a silent mode that reduces both the charging speed and fan power to 23dB. You can schedule the silent mode, which is helpful if you plan to recharge your OnePlus 9 series device overnight.
