2021’s OnePlus Watch had a price-tag of $159 during its launch, which made it competitive enough with the Amazfit GTS 2 and Xiaomi Mi Watch.

The company might shed some light on it as we approach the OnePlus Nord Watch release date. However, taking various reports, leaks and rumors into consideration, we could anticipate that the new OnePlus smartwatch could be priced somewhere between $65 and $100.
However, in the Indian market, this much-awaited device has been priced at ₹6,999. But thanks to an ongoing sale by OnePlus, it is up for grabs at only ₹4,999.

Why the OnePlus Nord Watch Has Been Launched in India First?
Last year, the company suffered a massive face-loss along with incurring a huge financial setback, as 2021’s OnePlus Watch fell flat and turned out to be a major failure in the international smartwatch market. India happens to be the country which houses the biggest consumer base of Nord users in the entire world.
It seems to be a smart move on the part of OnePlus to capitalize on the loyal customer base to kick-start the sales of the new One Plus watch in the best possible manner. The way things stand as of now, only after securing a flying start for the new OnePlus Nord Watch in the Indian market, the tech-leaders will launch it all over the global markets.
