#OnePlus revealed earlier this month that it will release a smartwatch in 2021, though it’s still unclear if it will use #Google’s #Wear OS platform or custom-built software (like #Huawei and #Samsung’s wearables). #However, if a new report is accurate, a cheaper fitness band might reach the finish line before a full-blown #OnePlus smartwatch is ready.

#Android #Central is reporting that #OnePlus will release a fitness band before its regular smartwatch is ready. The band is expected to arrive sometime in the first quarter of 2021, and will be priced around $40. #That places it in competition with the #Xiaomi #Mi #Band 5, #Galaxy #Fit2, #Wyze #Band (pictured above), and other low-end wearables. The #OnePlus band is likely to have an AMOLED screen, water resistance, and multi-day battery life.

#Given the close proximity of #OnePlus to #Oppo, any fitness band from #OnePlus could be based on the #Oppo #Band, which was released in #June. The #Oppo #Band has a 1.1-inch AMOLED screen, 12 sports tracking modes, waterproofing up to 50 meters, but no GPS. #It costs CNY 199, which works out to be around $30 at the current exchange rate.
