After heaps of leaks and rumors, OnePlus has finally taken the wrap off its first-ever wearable, the OnePlus Band — a budget-friendly smart band that brings useful features like color display, SpO2 sensor, and a plethora of sports modes.
You’re greeted with a 1.1-inch AMOLED display with full touch support as there are no physical buttons on it. The resolution sits at 126 x 294 pixels and there’s a handful of customization options. In fact, the OnePlus Band offers 37 different watch faces, with five already on the device, while some others can be tweaked to your liking,
The smart band weighs around 10.3 grams, whereas the rubber band is around 12.3 grams, totaling just 22.6 grams, making it really light to strap on your wrist. About the bands, it’s available in three color options: Navy, Black, and Tangerine Gray, out of which the first one ships out of the box; the remaining two can be purchased separately.
The OnePlus Band comes with 12 different exercise modes and a Free Training option for ones that are not listed. It’s IP68 water resistance for 5ATM and comes with Bluetooth 5.0 onboard to connect with your smartphone. For charging, the device has two pogo pins that can be attached to a dedicated charger, which is handy as you don’t have to take out the whole tracker. You can use the smart band to control your music playback as well as a camera shutter for your phone. And for those with OnePlus devices, you can use Zen Mode synchronization.
Although OnePlus did not mention anything about the battery capacity, it said that the smart band could last up to two weeks on one charge. Of course, your mileage may vary depending on your usage, mainly if you use its features to track blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), heart rate, and sleep.
You can track and adjust all this data of the device through the OnePlus Health app available on the Google Play Store.
As for the price, the OnePlus Band costs INR 2,799, which translates to around NPR 4,500 in Nepal. If you need that extra band, you can purchase it for INR 399 (~NPR 640).
OnePlus has not said anything about the Band’s availability outside India, so we’re not sure if it will launch in Nepal anytime soon. However, once it does makes its way, we expect it to go against the like of much popular Mi Band 5 in Nepal.
