OnePlus has launched its OnePlus Fitness Band aimed to give Mi Band a run for its money. Today OnePlus finally dipped its toes in the wearable ecosystem waters with its fitness band. For tech enthusiasts, the OnePlus Fitness Band would resemble extremely close to the Oppo Band.  

The feature sheet on the OnePlus Band packs all the features one might expect from a device at the price point it’s released in (Rs. 2,499). The OnePlus Band comes with a 1.1-inch AMOLED display, SpO2 monitoring, sleep monitoring, and heart rate tracking.  

Although there’s no GPS in the fitness tracking device, the OnePlus band does come with a connected GPS feature. It also comes with an IP68 certification meaning it could be worn while swimming. OnePlus claims 14-day battery life on a single charge on the band.  

CEO of OnePlus in his release statement said, “The OnePlus Band is the youngest addition to our portfolio and we are excited to bring our first-ever wearable product to our community. It embodies our burdenless design philosophy while offering the latest technology to our users. With its dual-coloured styling and exceptional features, the OnePlus Band is versatile in both style and use. It also furthers our vision of building a seamlessly connected ecosystem and we are positive that the OnePlus Band will prove to be a truly remarkable smart addition for our community.”
