It is officially confirmed that OnePlus is working on its first-ever smartwatch and could launch it soon if all goes well. But, meanwhile, it will offer you another wearable, which is also the first for the company. There have been several leaks on the Band already.
Now, something has surfaced online by OnePlus itself that confirms the existence of the fitness tracker. OnePlus has published a new OnePlus Health app on Google Play Store, indicating a lot about an incoming fitness tracker. The description further unwraps the mystery and confirms the name and all those features that we learned through previous leaks before.
The screenshots included in the listing clearly shows the name OnePlus Band and its design. It also corroborates all those reports that we learned earlier stating the fitness tracker will do heart rate monitoring and track your sleep pattern as well.
The app will let you access your health data and progress report. With the help of this app, you can track movements and follow the improvements. Also, one can customize and set various elegant watch faces. The screenshot shows five watch faces, with names like Shape, Glow, and Firework. The app will let the users manage notifications and call info as well. In addition to this, you can also track workout duration, distance, and calories burned.
Overall, the Health app looks pretty similar to other health apps in the market. In fact, as AndroidPolice points out the app is basically the same as Oppo’s HeyTap Health app.
It’s been just a few hours since the app has published on the Play Store by OnePlus. It is 61MB in size and has already seen 100+ installs. It requires Android 6.0 and above. OnePlus has not mentioned the name of its eligible devices and looks like it has left it with a mere placeholder “new devices supported.” So, it is unknown what those new devices are that OnePlus is talking about.
With this Play Store appearance, it looks like the launch of the OnePlus Band is just around the corner. It appears OnePlus is just setting the stage and doing the arrangements before it launches its first device of this year.
