Given how bad 2020 was I’m sure a lot of us are taking our head more seriously and wish to be more active in 2021. And it’s about the right time for oneplus to launch its first fitness band conveniently called the oneplus band. Now its highlight feature is SPO2 tracking but how is this bad and will it help with your New Year resolutions. Well, stay with me right till the end of this post to find out.
This is the full review of the oneplus band, the oneplus band like most fitness bands has two components a strap and a capsule. You can easily pop the capsule into and out of the strap. The strap material isn’t harsh on the skin and I did not face any discomfort during a week of use.
The oneplus band is IP68 certified for dust and water resistance and can handle up to 580 meters of pressure so you can wear it while swimming. on the underside of the capsule are pins for charging and sensors for heart rate and SPO2 tracking you will have to remove the capsule from the oneplus band for charging which could be inconvenient for some people.
This capsule fits snugly in the including proprietary charger with an audible click. Oneplus did not have an app for iOS when I was testing. The band the company has mentioned that it will be launching one soon. The oneplus health app will give you detailed information about your steps heart rate SPO2 levels and sleep with this app.

Certain settings such as the frequency of heart rate and SPO2 measurement can be configured only through this app. the oneplus band works as a notifier to show notifications from your Smartphone. You can select which apps can send notifications via the Smartphone app for this product. You can read incoming messages but it isn’t convenient to read on the small display.
It also buzzes to notify you of incoming calls but I could only silence the band or reject these incoming calls from the band itself. The oneplus band has a 1.1-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 126×294 pixels. This band can store up to 5 watch faces at a time which you can then choose by swiping on the home screen.
there are more that you can download to the oneplus health app. now use the oneplus band regularly for a week to monitor how it performs and I found that its interface was very easy to use. It offers multiple workout modes most of which are commonly used such as outdoor walking, cycling, running, cricket, badminton, and swimming.
I found the SPO2 tracking to be accurate and I measured it at least once a day. The reading was usually 99 to 100 percent which should be for a healthy individual and the readings were in line with what I got from the Samsung galaxy s10 plus heart rate sensor.
