The OnePlus Band is available to purchase in India starting today via Amazon, Flipkart, and official OnePlus channels. The smart band's early sale in the country began on January 12 for OnePlus Red Cable Club members through the OnePlus e-store and the OnePlus Store app. The OnePlus Band, with its wide availability, will compete against the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 that comes with the same price tag and similar features.

In terms of pricing, the OnePlus Band carries a price tag of Rs 2,499. As mentioned, customers in India can now purchase the device via Amazon, Flipkart, and OnePlus official channels. Notably, Amazon and Flipkart are offering EMI options with domestic and international banks and 10 percent discount on AU Bank debit cards. Flipkart and Amazon users can also avail 5 percent cashback with Flipkart Axis Bank credit card and Amazon Pay credit card, respectively. OnePlus is separately selling wrist straps in Navy and Tangerine Gray colours at Rs 399 each.
The OnePlus Band sports a 1.1-inch AMOLED display with 126x294 pixels resolution. Unlike the Mi Smart Band 5 that has 11 exercise modes support, the OnePlus device comes pre-loaded with 13 exercise modes like running, swimming, cycling, and more.
