The wait has finally come to an end. OnePlus has entered a new category, namely wearable devices, with the launch of the OnePlus Band in India today. It is ready to compete with Xiaomi and Realme with its affordable fitness tracker. This company offers an AMOLED screen, 13 sports modes, a heart rate also SpO2 sensor, and long battery life through its first fitness band.
OnePlus Band Specifications
The OnePlus Band features a two-tone strap design, which looks great, and houses the core pill that tracks your health and well-being. The band features a 1.1-inch AMOLED touchscreen with a resolution of 294 x 126 pixels. It is the same size as the Mi Band 5 screen. However, I am not the biggest fan of the OnePlus logo in capital letters on the front.
ONEPLUS BAND IS THE COMPANY’S FIRST-EVER WEARABLE DEVICE AND ARRIVES BEFORE ITS LONG-RUMORED SMARTWATCH.
The fitness band features a heart rate and SpO2 sensor for 24/7 heart rate monitoring and blood oxygen monitoring, respectively. OnePlus Band also monitors your sleep, sends you sedentary reminders, and more. It is also IP68 water and dust resistant, so you don’t have to worry while using it at the beach or pool.
The band supports 13 sports modes, including outdoor running, outdoor cycling, outdoor walking, indoor cycling, indoor running, fat loss running, free training, badminton, cricket, swimming, yoga, elliptical machine, and weight training.
OnePlus Band connects via Bluetooth 5.0 and all your health data is synced with the new OnePlus Health app. It allows you to view your activity data, set up new watch faces, use your gallery photos as watch faces, and more. This fitness band will also allow silent alarm, weather, music playback controls, Find Phone, also more.
OnePlus Band promises up to 14 days of battery life on a single charge. However, how is the band loaded? While the Mi Band 5 has finally simplified its charging problems with a magnetic connector, you must use a charging dock with the OnePlus Band. You will need to remove the pad from the strap and place it on the charging base to charge the exercise band.
