Indian wearable brand Crossbeats has announced a new smartwatch called Nexus. The affordable option is not so common as it includes ChatGPT integration, the Apple-inspired Dynamic Island and more for under Rs 5,000. View the details.
Crossbeats Nexus: Specifications and Features
The Nexus smartwatch has a metal chassis and a rotating crown for easy navigation. It features a 2.01-inch AMOLED display with a ‘Dynamic Island’, and yes, like Apple, it was introduced with the iPhone 14 Pro models and extended to the latest iPhone 15 series. Notifications and more are shown here. However, not much is known yet about the right options.
Another highlight is the recording of ChatGPT conversational AI, which has been all the rage in the tech world lately. The smartwatch also comes with an e-book reader. The Crossbeats Nexus supports GPS Dynamic Route tracking and an altimeter.
Archit Agarwal, co-founder of Crossbeats, said: “With the launch of Crossbeat Nexus, we embark on an exciting journey towards innovative, purpose-driven solutions. We also look forward to making substantial investments in state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, incorporating the very latest technology. These developments will enable us to manufacture consumer technology products of exceptional quality, in line with the highest global standards.“
Not much is known about the smartwatch yet. But we expect the usual health features like a heart rate monitor, an SpO2 sensor, a sleep tracker and probably a blood pressure monitor. There will be the ability to track steps, calories and even distance travelled.
It will most likely come with Bluetooth calling support, a wide range of watch faces, and much more. The watch may also have an IP rating for water and dust resistance.
Price and availability
The Crossbeats Nexus is priced at Rs 5,999 and is now available for pre-order for Rs 999. There’s no word on the exact availability details, but it’s slated to arrive this Diwali. The smartwatch comes in the colors Black and Silver.
