Wearable devices are often at every conversation about the Internet of Things (IoT) because of the full range of new capabilities that ubiquitous connectivity can provide. Subsequently, users are quickly becoming interested in smartwatches and bands. And it appears that OnePlus is also paving its way on a wearable device. OnePlus has recently released the OnePlus Band, which is now available in Nepal. Let’s take a look at the first fitness band from OnePlus.
OnePlus Band Overview
Build and Design
The OnePlus Band flaunts a 1.1″ AMOLED display panel with 126×294 pixels resolution. The Band comes with a cool-dual color band. Similarly, there is a variety of watch faces to choose from so that you can wear a new face every day. It has both IP68 water-resistant and 5ATM ratings.
In terms of design, its look resembles the Mi Smart Band 5. The OnePlus Band, on the other hand, lacks a physical button. It has a removable main tracker design to switch between dynamic dual-color straps combinations with ease. The OnePlus Band is only 22.6 grams and measures 40.4 x 17.6 x 11.95 mm in size. The band is available in three different color combinations: Tangerine Gray, black, and navy.
Health and Fitness Tracking
To begin, there are 13 different exercise modes available on the OnePlus Band, including yoga mode. The SpO2 sensor on the OnePlus band allows for continuous monitoring of your blood oxygen saturation. In addition, there is a 3-axis accelerometer and gyroscope along with an optical heart rate sensor and a vibration Motor. They work together to track and monitor your activity. The OnePlus Band, for example, keeps track of your daily running, cycling, pool swimming, and other sports activities.
Battery Life and Connectivity
The OnePlus Band comes with a 100mAh battery that lasts up to 14 days on a single charge. The OnePlus Band will work with devices running Android 6.0 or higher at first. However, at a later date, OnePlus will add support for the iPhone, as well as a corresponding OnePlus Health app for iOS. According to the company, the band also claims to provide the “best experience” with the OnePlus phone. The Band supports Bluetooth LE 5.0 connectivity.
Rest of Specs
The OnePlus Band gives you real-time message notifications, incoming call alerts, call rejection, music playback controls, and a remote camera shutter button when you pair it with a compatible smartphone. It also supports Zen Mode synchronization, when connected to the OnePlus phone.
