BGR is reporting that OnePlus, maker of the somewhat-available OnePlus One phone, has an Android Wear watch in the works.

The site posted screenshots, purported to be from an anonymous tipster, that show a product labeled the OneWatch. There is one shot of a product web site and a series of sketches detailing the watch’s design.

A tipster leaked sketches of the OneWatch design to BGR. Take them with a grain of salt.

This report is firmly in the rumor category, as evleaks, which traditionally is highly accurate with its leaked information, recently fell victim to a false report about OnePlus.

If the watch is real, it is unclear if it would follow the unusual ask-an-owner-to-possibly-buy-one procedure that you must go through to try and secure a OnePlus One phone.

Like the forthcoming Moto 360, the OneWatch images show a round, traditional watch face. This design is gaining in popularity over the current LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live that were the first devices to become available powered by Android Wear.

This isn’t the only watch getting some attention—HP is partnering with designer Michael Bast and to design a custom smartwatch that will work with both Android and iOS.
