This particular smartwatch is all ready to arrive in three different colors: silver, black, and gold. The strap does not have a standard clasp, but seems to lock magnetically in different positions. On the right, a crown is located in the center, which is presumably intended for menu navigation.
The display is rumored to have a resolution of 368 x 448 pixels. Functions such as tracking the wearer's heart rate, sleep quality, and blood oxygen levels are also said to be possible with the inexpensive OnePlus Nord Watch.
Speaking of affordable, the smartwatch is rumored to be priced at 5,000 and 8,000 Indian rupees. That would be about $62 to $100. However, since OnePlus only advertised this in India, we will assume an initial launch there before it is followed by a global release.
