Information about the upcoming OnePlus Nord Watch – perhaps an even more affordable companion to the OnePlus Watch – continues to trickle in from official and unofficial channels. Thanks to a new leak, we now have a proper look at the wearable.
This leak comes from 91mobiles (opens in new tab) and shows the OnePlus Nord Watch in dark blue and black, from various angles. With its rectangular face and a physical button to the right of the screen, the wearable definitely gives off Apple Watch vibes.
OnePlus already gave us a glimpse of part of the watch, but these images show the whole picture. There are also some mockups of what to expect on the software side, including two watch faces and stats for heart rate, blood oxygen levels, stress and sleep.
Display and battery
Some key specs are also included in this latest leak, some of which have already been confirmed – such as the 1.78-inch, 60Hz AMOLED panel. There will apparently be 105 fitness modes to choose from, with OnePlus expected to reveal more about it on September 26.
Watch the official website (opens in new tab) for more details, as OnePlus promises to reveal the device’s specifications bit by bit over the next week. A full launch shouldn’t be far off, based on what we already know.
According to 91mobiles, the OnePlus Nord Watch is set to offer up to 10 days of battery life, with the potential for 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 been hearing rumors surrounding the OnePlus Nord Watch for several months now, and when we finally hear the price, it’s expected to be low. The OnePlus Watch from 2021 only costs $159 / £149 (about AU$245), so there’s not much room for it.
It’s interesting to compare the move to the recently launched Apple Watch Ultra, which will set you back $799 / £849 / AU$1,229. It’s as much as a flagship smartphone, so it’s only wearable for the most dedicated and wealthy Apple fans.
Then there’s the Google Pixel Watch to be added to the mix, which is thought to be fully released on October 6th. It could go as high as €250 (around $250 / £220 / AU$370), according to the latest rumors .
In other words, we’ve got smartwatches across the price spectrum right now, which should be good news for consumers looking for something to wrap around their wrists (we haven’t even mentioned Fossil, Fitbit, or Samsung).
