OnePlus today made its first raid in the portable room with the launch of a new training track in India. Called the OnePlus Band, this new training tracker takes on the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 with an attractive set of features, including a bright color screen, up to two weeks of battery life, an SpO2 sensor, 24-hour heart rate monitoring and more.
OnePlus Band: Specifications
|Dimensions and weight||
Similar to Xiaomi’s offering, the OnePlus Band features a 1.1-inch AMOLED color display with silicone straps. The screen has a resolution of 126 x 294 pixels and provides 100% coverage of the P3 wide color spectrum. When it comes to sensors, the OnePlus Band is equipped with an optical heart rate sensor, 3-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and a Spo2 sensor. With these sensors available, the tape can count the steps and calories burned, monitor heart rate, track sleep and measure blood oxygen levels. 13 training modes are supported, including outdoor running, indoor running, Fat Burn Run, outdoor walking, cycling, rowing, swimming, Yoga and Cricket.
Other notable features of the OnePlus Band include notification support, music playback control, Zen Mode synchronization with selected OnePlus phones, Find My Phone and the ability to mute or reject incoming calls. Tracker is IP68 certified for dust and water repellent, so it can also be used during intensive training and swimming.
OnePlus Band operates on Bluetooth 5.0 (Low Energy) and packs a 100 mAh battery that is said to last for up to 14 days on a single charge. Charging is done through a USB-A-powered dongle, and the good part is that you do not have to detach the capsule from the straps.
The band must be paired with the included OnePlus Health app, which you can download to any smartphone running Android 6.0 and later. In addition to offering a detailed overview of various data collected from the tracker, the app also allows you to customize clocks and control other functions.
Prices and availability
The band comes in three colors: black, navy blue and mandarin gray. It is priced at £ 2,499 (~ $ 34) and will be sold from January 13, 2021 from Amazon India, Flipkart and OnePlus India’s website and offline sites. Tangerine Gray and Navy dual-colored straps will be sold separately for £ 399 each. Early access sales for Red Cable Club members begin January 12, 2021 at 9 a.m. IST.
