Information about the upcoming OnePlus Nord Watch – perhaps an even more affordable companion to the OnePlus Watch – continues to leak from official and unofficial channels. Thanks to a new leak, we now have a proper look at the wearable.
This leak comes 91 furniture (opens in new tab) and shows the OnePlus Nord Watch in dark blue and black, from multiple angles. With its rectangular face and a physical button to the right of the screen, the wearable definitely gives off Apple Watch vibes.
OnePlus has already given us a glimpse of part of the watch, but these images show the whole picture. There are also a few models of what to expect on the software side, including two watch faces and statistics on heart rate, blood oxygen levels, stress and sleep.

Some key specs are also included in this latest leak, some of which have already been confirmed – like the 1.78-inch, 60Hz AMOLED panel. There will apparently be 105 fitness modes to choose from, with OnePlus expected to reveal more on that on September 26.
Keep an eye the official website (opens in new tab) for more details as OnePlus promises to reveal the device specs bit by bit next week. A full release shouldn’t be far off, based on what we already know.
According to 91mobiles, the OnePlus Nord Watch will offer battery life of up to 10 days, with up to 30 days possible in standby mode. As expected, the wearable will work with Android phones and iPhones.
Review: A smartwatch for everyone
We’ve been hearing rumors surrounding the OnePlus Nord Watch for several months now, and when we finally hear the price, it’s expected to be low. The 2021 OnePlus Watch is just $159 / £149 (about AU$245), so there’s not much room for that.
It’s interesting to compare the move to the recent launch of the Apple Watch Ultra, which will cost $799 / £849 / AU$1,229. That’s about as much as a flagship smartphone, so it’s a wearable only for the most committed and affluent Apple fans.
Then there’s the Google Pixel Watch to add to the mix, which is set to launch in full on October 6th. This can cost up to €250 (approximately $250 / £220 / AU$370), according to the latest rumors.
In other words, we have smartwatches across the entire price spectrum right now, which should be good news for consumers looking for something to wrap their wrists (we didn’t even mention Fossil, Fitbit, or Samsung).
