OnePlus Band, the first fitness band from OnePlus, is launching on January 11. In a tweet, OnePlus finally announced the launch date for its wearable that it has been teasing for quite some time. Since it is going to be a fitness-centric wearable, you can expect features such as the heart-rate monitor, blood oxygen level monitor, calorie counter, and support for various workout modes. OnePlus is known for giving a flair to its products that mostly stand out, which is why it will be interesting to see how OnePlus Band will appeal to customers in the sea of fitness bands.
The OnePlus Band has already been teased by Amazon, which means it will be exclusively available on the e-commerce platform. Besides, the OnePlus Band may become available for the offline market via OnePlus Stores and partner outlets, but nothing is confirmed at this point. But we have been hearing a lot about the OnePlus Band through the grapevine and today's announcement is absolutely in line with them. Tipster Ishan Agarwal had said OnePlus Band will launch on January 11, which is now true. So let me talk about what else we know about the OnePlus Band because it is very likely they all will be true.
OnePlus Band price
The OnePlus Band is tipped to cost you Rs 2,499, according to Agarwal. There is no way to confirm this price until OnePlus goes out of the way to announce it before the event. But talking from the traditional point, the price of the OnePlus Band will be announced on January 11.
OnePlus Band features
According to Agarwal and the Amazon listing of OnePlus Band, the first fitness wearable from OnePlus is expected to feature activities such as sleep tracking, real-time heart rate monitoring, and 13 exercise modes including outdoor run, cycling, cricket, pool, swimming, and yoga. Additionally, the OnePlus Band will also come with blood saturation monitoring features. There is going to be a 1.1-inch touchscreen display, and the band will be backed by a battery that will last for up to 14 days. The OnePlus Band will also be water-resistant.
The fitness market is growing rapidly in India and there are several brands fighting in the entry-level and mid-range market. You have fitness bands from Realme, Xiaomi, Redmi, Noise, Amazfit, and Honor in the under Rs 5,000 segment. And since the competition is fierce, the features on various fitness bands are quite appealing. You can get a colour touchscreen, support for blood oxygen level, activity monitor, and the ability to remote control things such as the camera shutter and music playback on your paired phone. OnePlus could weigh in these features for its fitness band that is coming out next week in India.
