The OnePlus Band will mark the company's move into the wearables segment. OnePlus is also expected to launch a OnePlus Watch smartwatch this year.

OnePlus recently teased the development of its first fitness band via a tweet. It appears that device namely OnePlus Band (moniker unconfirmed) would launch in India soon as its dedicated Amazon micro-site is now live. Additionally, the website hints that the smart band would come with sleep and heart rate tracker and feature dust and water-resistant build. The website has also added a 'notify me' button, that will let OnePlus fans receive official updates as soon as they are out.

The Amazon website also teases the OnePlus Band in a black colour finish with at least two different silicone straps in black and orange finish. The official poster includes the text that reads, 'The New Face of Fitness' with 'Coming Soon' written next to it. Meanwhile, notable tipsters Mukul Sharma and Ishan Agarwal claim that the device may launch on January 11 with a price tag of around Rs 2,499. Tipster Sharma via his YouTube channel (stufflistings) also suggests that the fitness band would feature a 1.1-inch AMOLED touch display with 24x7 heart rate and SpO2 blood saturation monitoring. Sensors onboard reportedly include 3-axis accelerometer and gyroscope, though it may also have GPS support. For connectivity, it is tipped to support Bluetooth v5.0. The video further highlights that it may come with an IP68 dust and water resistance rating and 100mAh battery that can last up to 14 days. For fitness enthusiasts, the OnePlus Band is rumoured to have 13 exercise modes.

Lastly, the tipster claims that the upcoming OnePlus fitness band measures 40.4x17.6x11.45mm and weighs 10.3 grams (without the strap). Recently, images of the OnePlus Band were leaked online, hinting at a Xiaomi Mi Band 5-like design with colourful straps.
