Information about the upcoming OnePlus Nord Watch – perhaps an even more affordable companion OnePlus watch – continues to pour from official and unofficial channels. Thanks to a new leak, we now have a proper look at the wearable.
This leak comes from 91 mobile (opens in a new tab) and shows the OnePlus Nord Watch in navy blue and black from different angles. With a rectangular watch face and a physical button on the right side of the screen, the wearable defines the vibe of the Apple Watch.
OnePlus already gave us an idea parts of the watch, but these images show the full picture. There are also some mockups of what to expect from the software, including two watch faces and stats for heart rate, blood oxygen, stress and sleep.
Screen and battery
Some key specs are also included in this latest leak, some of which have already been confirmed – such as a 1.78-inch 60Hz AMOLED panel. There will apparently be 105 fitness modes, and OnePlus is expected to reveal more about it on September 26.
Follow up official website (opens in a new tab) for more details as OnePlus promises to reveal the device’s specifications bit by bit next week. Based on what we already know, a full launch is just around the corner.
According to 91mobiles, the OnePlus Nord Watch will offer up to 10 days of battery life with up to 30 days of standby time. As expected, the wearable will work with both Android phones and iPhones.
Analysis: A smartwatch for everyone
We’ve heard rumors about the OnePlus Nord Watch for several months now, and when we do finally know the price, it’s expected to be low. The OnePlus Watch from 2021 costs just $159 / £149 (around AU$245), so there’s not much room below that.
It is interesting to compare this move with the recent launch Apple Watch Ultra, which will set you back $799 / £849 / AU$1,229. It’s as much as a flagship smartphone, so only the most dedicated and wealthy Apple fans can wear it.
In other words, we’ve got smartwatches across the pricing spectrum for now, which should be good news for consumers looking for something to wrap around their wrist (we haven’t even mentioned Fossil, Fitbit, or Samsung).
