With the release of the OnePlus Watch in April of last year, OnePlus entered the wristwatch market.
The watch wasn’t as intelligent as it could have been because it ran OnePlus’ own unique operating system based on RTOS instead of Google’s Wear OS. Now, another wearable from OnePlus running its own OS is in the works, according to some fresh leaks going around. It will this time be introduced as part of the Nord portfolio.
The wearable, dubbed the “OnePlus Nord Watch,” is anticipated to cost less than the OnePlus Watch. A few leaked screenshots of the N Health App, which is allegedly the watch’s specific smartphone app, give us an idea of how the wristwatch will seem. The Nord Watch will have a rectangular, Apple Watch-like appearance with a crown on the right side, in contrast to the OnePlus Watch, which had a round dial.
The images mentioned from the N Health app that were tweeted by Mukul Sharma show an unannounced Nord watch making an early appearance. Although it’s hard to tell from this rendering, the Nord Watch appears to resemble the Apple Watch in shape and to include a side button. It’s a significant design improvement over the first OnePlus Watch, which had a circular dial, and a wonderful choice for those who like squared-off screens. Aside from this, the solitary, extremely small snapshot makes it difficult to imagine further nuances. Overall, the display seems to be fairly big, but it’s hard to tell how big the bezels around it really are.
Some details regarding the watch are shown in the screenshots, such as the presence of a step counter feature and training modes for outdoor cycling and outdoor walking. A picture of the wristwatch also displays six of its watch faces, however more might be chosen using an app. Additionally, it is possible to set photographs as watch faces.
In addition, the leak indicates that the watch will have a SpO2 sensor, sleep tracking, and heart rate monitoring. Although OnePlus hasn’t made any official announcements just yet, that could change in the coming days. It will be fascinating to see whether the OnePlus Nord Watch will be sold in North America. Although the Nord brand is significantly more well-known in other regions around the world, just a small number of Nord smartphones and the OnePlus Nord Buds have been released in the United States. We’ll have to wait and see if this also applies to the OnePlus Nord Watch.
Given that the previous OnePlus Watch also used a proprietary operating system, it is simple to assume that this watch won’t support Wear OS. The specialized N Health app, on the other hand, has a modern design that is ideal for LiteOS. It’s possible that it will launch on the Play Store at the same time as the Nord Watch.
