Last week OnePlus India announced that today the firm would present its first wearable and, indeed, it has done so. The OnePlus Band is official and mounts a 1.1 inch AMOLED screen, a heart rate sensor, a SpO2 sensor, and a battery that OnePlus claims are capable of offering up to 14 days of battery life.
The company has launched it in India, where it can already be purchased for 2,799 rupees, about $37 in exchange. At the moment we do not know if it will arrive in other countries, so we are waiting to know that information to, if so, update with the price and availability at our borders. That said, let’s get to know the OnePlus Band a little better.

This is the first OnePlus wearable
As we said, the OnePlus Band is the first OnePlus wearable (leaving aside the wireless headphones, of course). The band consists of a top pad, where we find the screen and sensors, and an interchangeable silicone bracelet. The pickup is always black, but the strap can be black, blue, or gray/orange. It should be noted that it has IP68 resistance and can be submerged up to 50 meters.
At the top, there is the screen, a 1.1-inch color AMOLED touch panel. It has a resolution of 126 x 294 pixels and adjustable brightness. Also, it can be customized with different covers. At the bottom, we have the heart rate sensor, the SpO2 sensor, and the charging pins. Overall, the device weighs 22.6 grams.
As for the functions of a quantifying wristband, the OnePlus Band is capable of measuring the blood oxygen level (manually and automatically during sleep), heart rate, and sleep sessions. The metrics are accessible from the OnePlus Health app, which is only available on Android. It has 13 sports modes, music control, a remote shutter for the mobile camera, and allows you to receive calls and notifications.
Finally, it should be noted that OnePlus states that its battery is capable of offering up to 14 days of autonomy. However, it is important to note that this will depend on the use that each user makes of the wearable. As we can see, it is a relatively basic bracelet and lacks, for example, an integrated GPS chip.
Price and Availability of the OnePlus Band
The OnePlus Band has been launched in India, where it can already be purchased for about $38 at the exchange rate. The available colors are black, blue, and grey/orange. At the moment we do not know anything about its arrival in other countries, but we will be watching to see if it does, to update the prices and availability.
