The timing of OnePlus Band’s release was well-judged — just 10 days into January. It is that time of the year when resolutions, especially fitness-related ones, blossom. It had been over three months since Xiaomi launched Mi Smart Band 5, which, like OnePlus Band, falls under the ₹2500-₹3000 price range. There were no major releases in between. And, OnePlus, especially in India, are highly regarded for their smartphones.
