CMF by Nothing Watch Pro 2 gets IMDA approval ahead of July 8 launch

A IMDA certification listing confirms that tech firm CMF by Nothing is preparing to launch its second smartwatch. This follows a similar BIS approval about a month ago. The wearable is due to be launched on July 8.

CMF by Nothing made their debut into the wearable market with the Watch Pro. This is a device released in September 2023, which quickly gained attention partly due to its surprisingly low price point. Boasting a 1.96-inch AMOLED display, a heart rate sensor, an SpO2 monitor, and 110 sports modes, the Watch Pro offered remarkable value for its $49 price tag.

One of the standout features of the CMF Watch Pro is its battery life, claiming up to 13 days of use on a single charge. Its design, featuring a square dial and interchangeable straps, was also well-received by consumers. All in all, the timepiece does enough to satisfy most people’s needs. Especially when you consider its price-tag.

What to expect from the new Nothing smartwatch

Now less than a year later we are expecting its successor. On July 8 we will be getting Watch Pro 2 and the successor to CMF Buds Pro.

The IMDA in Singapore lists CMF Watch Pro 2 with the model number D398. The device is listed under the Bluetooth category, so is unlikely to feature LTE connectivity.

As mentioned, this follows the regulatory listing from BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) for a watch that bears same model number. The filing indicates that the product has been submitted for testing and approval in India, suggesting an upcoming launch in that market.

Other details are still scarce, but we can anticipate several improvements and refinements based on feedback from the CMF Watch Pro.

For starters, the CMF Watch Pro’s case might be slightly reduced to cater to a wider range of wrist sizes. It is a rather bulky device. Improvements could be made to the charging solution as it is rather flimsy. And automatic brightness adjustment would be a plus.

Beyond that Nothing might offer more customisation options. For example, a wider variety of band materials beyond the silicone straps available for the CMF Watch Pro. And it could expand on the current colour selection which is limited to orange, white, grey, and black.

A growing smartwatch ecosystem

Nothing might be a bit late to the smartwatch party. But the release of a second smartwatch will solidify its commitment to this space. It also signals their intention to create a comprehensive ecosystem of smart devices, including smartphones, earbuds and smartwatches.
