A Nord-branded smartwatch is apparently being developed by OnePlus. Tipster Mukul Sharma discovered a fresh breach on the OnePlus website. Although no specifics about the smartwatch’s features were leaked, this does suggest that it will soon be available. It will be the company’s first wearable under the Nord brand. OnePlus now offers its own smartwatch for purchase in India. Most likely, the new OnePlus Nord Watch will be a less expensive variation of the OnePlus Nord Watch.

This month’s end is predicted for the release of this flagship smartphone. OnePlus is developing a smartwatch under the Nord brand to compete in the low-cost wearable market. Current market leaders in India for affordable smartwatches include Xiaomi, Realme, Amazfit, and others.

According to the rumour, the OnePlus Nord Smartwatch will likely be released in conjunction with the OnePlus Nord 3 in H2 of 2022. There is little information available regarding the insides, but it is expected to cost less than INR 8,000 (US$105), which is less than half of what the full-fat OnePlus Watch in India costs (INR 14,999/US$197).

The OnePlus 10 Pro, OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G, OnePlus Nord 2T, OnePlus 10 Ultra, as well as OnePlus 10R are further OnePlus devices that are rumoured to be released in India. Along with the launch of the OnePlus 10 Pro in India later this month, it is anticipated that the OnePlus TV Y1S Pro would also be unveiled. A 4K display screen and Android TV 10 may be included in the OnePlus TV Y1S Pro.
OnePlus The OnePlus Watch, the company’s first smartwatch ever, was released last year, but both tech enthusiasts and reviewers were unimpressed. The activity monitoring functionality was only on par with a low-cost fitness band, with the exception of the seamless connection with the OnePlus range of goods, such as smart TVs and smartphones.
Along with the Nord Buds, OnePlus 10R 5G, and OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G, this will be the first wearable product from Nord. The listing has no information about the smartwatch’s deep specs outside the marketing name. In the second half of the year, the Nord smartwatch is anticipated to debut with the OnePlus Nord 3.
