Original article: January 11, 2021 at 1:36 a.m. ET: OnePlus is finally getting into the wearable ecosystem in India with the OnePlus Band. The company’s first foray into the fitness wearable ecosystem is an entry-level tracker that errs suspiciously close to the existing OPPO Band.

No, there’s no GPS here, but you do get a connected GPS feature. Additionally, the OnePlus Band is IP68 certified allowing you to comfortably take it for a swim. Battery life on the OnePlus Band is rated for up to 14 days on a single charge.
Like the Xiaomi Mi Band 5, the OnePlus Band ships with a range of activity modes. Check all of these modes below:
- Outdoor running
- Indoor running
- Fat burn run
- Outdoor walking
- Outdoor cycling
- Indoor cycling
- Elliptical trainers
