OnePlus Nord Watch - Press CTRL+Z

Written by Rahul Makwana


OnePlus Nord is priced at Rs 4,999 while its available in Midnight Black and Deep Blue color options.


The OnePlus Nord Watch comes with 1.78-inches AMOLED Rectangle display with a resolution of 368×448 Pixels with a pick brightness of 500 nits.

The screen bezels are not that big while the 500 nits pick brightness does help a lot while using the smartwatch outdoors.

The 60Hz screen refresh rate also plays its part, everything on the watch feels smooth. You won’t feel like you’re a budget smartwatch, OnePlus has worked on the software side of things which is clearly visible in real-life usage.

Overall, it’s a great AMOLED panel, for the price of Rs 5000, OnePlus has done great when it comes to the display.

Design, Comfort, and Build

OnePlus have used Zinc alloy for the frame while buckles have made from stainless steel and strap from Silicon.

All in all, the watch has a solid build, and it will give you all the premium feel that you always wanted in the budget smartwatch.

I don’t know about you but I’m not a big fan of glossy metal, in the case of OnePlus they have used glossy Zinc alloy. In short, the frame will get scratch very easily, and if that happens once then it won’t look as premium as it did when I was new.

Health and Fitness Tracking

This was a bit disappointing because the OnePlus Nord Watch doesn’t have a built-in GPS, now, if you’re wondering by GPS plays a huge role in Fitness Tracking then here is a little explanation,

When you do outdoor exercise, the smartwatch uses all the sensors from heart rate, SpO2, and GPS to measure your live location, and in the end, it provides the burned calories and the distance you run.

In short, if you wanted to buy a smartwatch for exercise then don’t buy the OnePlus Nord Watch and Consider the RealMe Watch 3 Pro.

The SpO2 sensor also works the best, it doesn’t feel gimmicky and the same can be said for the heart rate monitoring too.

Heart-Rate & SpO2

For example, The oximeter gives accurate data but at the same time, the watch showed an error margin of around 5% which isn’t very bad as the OnePlus Nord Watch is only priced at Rs 4,999.

Let’s say, if the smartwatch is showing 110 footsteps then it would be 120, so keep the error margin around 5%. Sometimes, it’s even 115.

The sleep monitoring also was on point, I didn’t see false data reading while wearing the watch all night or even when while sleeping during the day.

Sleep Monitoring


Just like any other fitness app, it will showcase heart rate, SpO2, and even Sleep data with a graphs. You can also set alarms and even reminders within the app.

OnePlus has also added 100+ watch faces inside the N Health App but if you don’t like any of the pre-added watch faces then you can always use your image or any other image for the watch face.

The app is well-organized and you won’t face any kind of problem while using it. By the way, the N Health app will only work on above iOS 11+ & Android 6.0+.

Battery Life

The OnePlus Nord Watch comes with a 240mAh battery and it supports a Magnetic charger.

OnePlus has promised 10 days of battery life with full usage which is kind of true because it doesn’t have Bluetooth calling and built-GPS, so the watch won’t consume more battery.

Still, don’t expect the full 10 days of battery, expect around 7 to 8 days. Now if you don’t use features like heart rate, SpO2, or even sleep monitoring then the battery will last for more than 10 days.


Its strength-up answer, don't buy the OnePlus Nord watch because its overpriced and its doesn't offer any useable feature, simply consider RealMe Watch 3 Pro or Dizo Watch R Talk.
