Smartwatch Vs. OLED Smartwatch: What’s Different?


What do you know of a OLED connected watch?

OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) technologies are increasingly being used for the displays of various smart electronic devices. Accelerating revenue growth, global OLED revenues in 2022 are approximately $9.5 million, and wearable OLED devices, including OLED smartwatches, account for the second largest of these revenues. Strong commercialization by electronics and semiconductor companies has been supported by a booming global market for smartwatches and smartphones with OLED displays.

Today, let’s dive into the world of OLED watches and learn how they are different from conventional smartwatches.

What is an OLED smartwatch?

An OLED smartwatch is a wearable computer in the form of a watch. Modern OLED smartwatches offer a thin, bright, and energy-efficient display screen with a touch interface and are paired with a smartphone app. These efficient small-screen smartwatches are perfect for easy access to your urgent mobile tasks.

Compared to LCD screen, OLED smartwatches are more energy efficient. They don’t need a battery-draining backlight to work because the crystals produce light on their own. Even though they are relatively expensive, their accessibility feature has led quality-conscious brands like Apple to immediately integrate this technology into their newly designed smartwatches.

OLED Smartwatch Vs. LCD Smartwatch

Now, let’s compare an OLED smartwatch with a traditional LCD smartwatch.

1. OLED Smartwatch Offers Higher Contrast

Contrast optimization produces more realistic images with brighter highlights and darker shadows. Traditional liquid crystal displays (LCDs) have a lower contrast ratio, while OLED devices offer extraordinary contrast ratios, delivering an exceptional high dynamic range (HDR) experience.

In smartwatches, the display matters most. The end user should have moderately lit display lighting with good results. OLEDs technically have unlimited contrast ratios to give smartwatch users a better experience.

2. More energy saving

In the case of LCD screens, there is more power consumption due to the use of backlights. The higher the brightness, the more energy will be used.

On the other hand, OLED is the clear winner due to its low power consumption. The latest smartwatches now bring Netflix or YouTube streaming functionality, requiring high power. However, OLED’s self-lighting technology consumes far less power than a traditional LCD screen.

3. Slimmer size and lighter weight

OLEDs are significantly thinner than traditional displays (0.15 to 2.5mm), allowing for smaller, more space-efficient products.

An OLED has smaller, lighter and more flexible plastic as well as organic layers unlike LCDs which consist of two glass substrates covered with a transparent conductor and a thin layer of liquid crystal material with a thickness between 5 and 10 micrometers.

4. Better image quality

When it comes to image quality, OLED devices take the crown. Dynamic range is a feature offered by all OLED smartwatches, but not cheaper LCDs, especially those without local dimming backlights.

So, go for OLED if you want to see HDR video in its brilliant, dynamic magnificence. Despite the LCD’s brightness advantage, it triumphs due to its higher contrast and lack of bloom.

OLED smartwatches are the best choice because they have pristine blacks, excellent viewing angles, unlimited contrast ratios and improved motion quality!

5. An OLED smartwatch has a better viewing angle.

Display screen performance is affected by angle and distance. One of the major disadvantages of LCD screens is a change in image quality if you don’t look at the LCD directly from the front. In-plane switching (IPS) panels, which are used in a few LCDs, have superior off-axis image quality than other types of LCDs, but do not have the same visual appeal as OLEDs .

OLED doesn’t have the off-axis problem that LCDs have; its image looks almost the same even from oblique angles. This makes them perfect for integration into smartwatches. Any smartwatch wearer would naturally view it from different angles rather than holding it directly in front of their eyes.

6. Flexibility

Smartwatches with OLED screens are indeed very flexible. Its pixels can switch modes surprisingly quickly because they combine light source and color into a single diode. LCD shutters are inherently slower to react to state changes than LEDs, whose brightness can be changed instantly.

OLED now offers the fastest response time of any display technology in use, thanks to its high flexibility features.

0.49 inch FET OLED screen is the best fit for an OLED smartwatch

All the features mentioned above remain highly intact and durable for a longer period if the OLED screens are made of high quality material. The quality of the product can make it last for days or years, that’s why you should get your hands on the high quality of FET Small 0.49 inch OLED FET display. Its high resolution output, energy saving and lighter weight will make your finished product stand out from the rest.

The small OLED display offers realistic color reproduction with wide viewing angles and high contrast, making it perfect for mobile phones, smart homes, watches, smart bracelets, e-cigarettes, medical equipment and toothbrushes electrical,
