The Nord lineup is home to OnePlus’ midrange smartphones, and many of them have done quite well in the market. OnePlus recently expanded the brand to include earbuds as well. The next stop for the Nord lineup, as per the leaks, looks to be the growing smartwatch segment. Today, we will look at everything we know about the upcoming OnePlus Nord Watch.
OnePlus Nord Watch Rumors Roundup:
Popular Indian leakster, Mukul Sharma revealed that the Nord Watch is about to launch soon. As for the leaks, it seems like the smartwatch has entered production. Thus, a launch seems imminent. Moreover, the watch is expected to debut in Asia and Europe.
One Plus’ first attempt at making a smartwatch was a disaster, to say the least. Their OnePlus Watch was met with heavy criticism as it lacked a lot. The hardware itself was decent. The biggest gripe was their lackluster health app.
Similarly, their ~$35 OnePlus Band failed too. Despite their failure, with the Nord Watch, OnePlus seems adamant about establishing itself as a well-versed player in the wearable market.

While the specifications of the Nord Watch are still hazy, the leaks say for certain that it will not run on WearOS. This is to be expected since the more expensive OnePlus Watch did not boot on WearOS too.
OnePlus is likely to include an OS similar to its €159 watch. But to overcome the previous failure, the brand must pack the upcoming smartwatch with more features.
The leakster also spotted the rumored OnePlus Nord smartwatch on the Indian BIS certification site a while ago. The listing doesn’t reveal much about the watch except for the OPBBE221 model number. Furthermore, OnePlus has reportedly begun testing the Nord watch internally in India.
Expect standard features
The specs sheet of the said Nord Watch is still shrouded in mystery. However, we can expect standard features such as a touchscreen, heart rate sensor, SpO2 monitor, music controls, sleep, step tracking, and smart notifications among others.
OnePlus Nord Watch Price And Availability
OnePlus will officially unveil the Nord Watch in the third quarter of 2022. It will be accompanied by two new wireless earbuds. If the OnePlus Nord Buds is any indication, the rumored Nord Smartwatch will be a low-cost smartwatch for the budget segment.
According to previous rumors, the Nord Watch will likely cost around INR 5,000 and INR 8,000. This puts it right in competition with smartwatch offerings from other brands like Realme, Amazfit, Xiaomi, and even Boat.
