Health app screenshots have revealed what might be our first glance at the upcoming OnePlus Nord Watch. There has also been a leak on possible colour options and features.
The Health app screenshots were shared by tipster Mukul Sharma of StuffListings on Twitter a few days ago. The device will apparently be coming to India in the near future and is already in testing before launch.
The images reveal something that comes in a rectangular shape, it has the typical health sensors including SpO2 and custom watch faces support. The device will feature a dedicated app called N Health. This is actually where the screenshots in the tweet below originate from.
The device seems to have a robust build and there’s a metal frame around the edges. A single crown button can be seen on the right which will help navigate the watch menus. It looks like Nord Watch will run a streamlined, proprietary RTOS operating system rather than Google WearOS.
Mukul Sharma followed up the original tweet with another one today where he details that OnePlus Nord Watch will come in a Black and White options. He also adds that this will be a fitness oriented watch for those on a budget and that it will feature a solid battery.
OnePlus already has a Nord range of products. The one characteristic they share is that they are affordable. We are guessing this will be a budget watch. The images above don’t suggest otherwise.
These leaks follows regulatory certification
This leak follows regulatory certification of the device filed last month. All of this suggests we might get the Nord Watch before the end of this year. Most likely in Q3 ahead of the holiday shopping period.

The regulatory certification comes from BIS which is the National Standards Body of India. The paperwork is for a smartwatch that goes under the OnePlus Nord moniker with a corresponding model number “OPBBE221”. This implies there could only be one iteration of the device. So far, the Indian certification is the only regulatory filing that has been spotted.
This is not the only OnePlus wearable expected to launch later this year. We wrote the other day about Watch 2 and Band 2. Both are expected to drop in the months ahead. These will be upgraded versions of the first generation products revealed last year.
The watch in particular has room for improvement as the original device was plagued with issues. OnePlus Band, on the other hand, was a more solid effort. Once again, we don’t have any details on possible specs but will report back when and if we hear more.
