The Nord lineup is home to OnePlus’ midrange smartphones, and many of them have done quite well in the market. OnePlus recently expanded the brand to include earbuds as well. The next stop for the Nord lineup is the growing smartwatch segment. Today, we will discuss everything we know about the upcoming OnePlus Nord Watch.
OnePlus Nord Watch Overview:
One Plus’ first attempt at making a smartwatch was a disaster, to say the least. Their OnePlus Watch was met with heavy criticism as it lacked a lot. The hardware itself was decent. The biggest gripe was their lackluster health app.
Similarly, their ~$35 OnePlus Band failed too. Despite their failure, with the Nord Watch, OnePlus seems adamant about establishing itself as a well-versed player in the wearable market.
The rumors of the OnePlus Nord Watch trace months back with reports suggesting the watch went to mass production in July. However, OnePlus confirmed the existence of the smartwatch just recently. There is already a product page for the Nord Watch which OnePlus is using to tease its feature one after another.
OnePlus has confirmed that the upcoming Nord Watch will feature a 1.78-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 368 x 448 pixels. The watch will refresh at 60Hz and boasts 500 nits of peak brightness.
Moving on, the smartwatch will have over 100 watch faces to choose from. OnePlus has also confirmed that Nord Watch will have 105 different sports modes.
Expect Standard Features
While OnePlus has not officially said anything about the battery of the Nord Watch, the endurance is said to be around 10 days. This comes from popular Indian leakster Mukul Sharma who also revealed that the watch will have women’s health tracking feature.
The specs sheet of the said Nord Watch is still shrouded in mystery. However, we can expect standard features such as a heart rate sensor, SpO2 monitor, music controls, sleep, step tracking, and smart notifications among others. Since it is an affordable smartwatch, we don’t think it will have Bluetooth calling feature.
While the specifications of the Nord Watch are still hazy, the leaks say for certain that it will not run on WearOS. This is to be expected since the more expensive OnePlus Watch did not boot on WearOS too.
OnePlus is likely to include an OS similar to its €159 watch. But to overcome the previous failure, the brand must pack the upcoming smartwatch with more features.
OnePlus Nord Watch Price And Availability
It’s not clear when OnePlus Nord Watch will hit the market. For now, the company is not done teasing its features yet.
According to previous rumors, the Nord Watch will likely cost around INR 5,000 and INR 8,000. This puts it right in competition with smartwatch offerings from other brands like Realme, Amazfit, Xiaomi, and even Boat.
