CMF by Nothing Watch Pro and Buds Pro
In an exciting turn of events, tech enthusiasts are abuzz with the news of “CMF by Nothing,” a sub-brand that has set its sights on a groundbreaking debut in the smart device market. Recent leaks have shed light on their upcoming products, including a smartwatch named “Watch Pro,” a trio of cutting-edge releases that are poised to make waves.
Alchimist Leaks on Telegram has unveiled a series of marketing banners that provide a tantalizing glimpse into CMF by Nothing’s inaugural offerings. Among the lineup are a 65W GaN 3-port USB-C charger, the intriguingly named “Buds Pro” noise-cancelling earbuds, and the much-anticipated “Watch Pro” smartwatch.
Presenting the CMF by Nothing Buds Pro: featuring 10mm dynamic drivers, up to 45dB ANC, 37hr battery life with case (11hr without), 3.5hr playback in 10 minutes, 55mAh (buds) | 460mAh (case), and IP54 Rating. Uncompromising audio meets lasting comfort and resilience.
The “Watch Pro” takes center stage as the star attraction of this trio. With a distinctive square display adorned with gracefully rounded corners covered by an aluminum alloy case, the watch’s aesthetic charm is immediately evident. An orange strap seamlessly connects to the body of the watch, defying convention with its apparent lack of visible lugs. Speculations arise about a proprietary connector or a design choice that prioritizes cohesion over detachability.
Diving into the technical realm, the “Watch Pro” boasts a 1.96-inch AMOLED display, offering always-on functionality and peaking at 600 nits of brightness. While it falls short of the Pixel Watch’s 1,000 nits, its 50Hz refresh rate promises a smooth user experience. The watch’s software showcases an impressive collection of 100 watch faces and over 100 supported workouts.
Noteworthy sensors include heart rate and blood oxygen monitoring, complemented by stress and sleep-tracking capabilities. A standout feature is its Bluetooth-enabled call handling, complete with “AI noise reduction.” A commendable battery life of up to 13 days (330mAh) is claimed when the always-on display feature is disabled.
Breaking away from the anticipated, the “Watch Pro” defies the WearOS trend. This choice aligns with CMF’s budget-conscious approach and Carl Pei’s candid attitude towards WearOS. Pei, the CEO of Nothing, had previously dismissed the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro as “useless.”
On a brighter note, the “Watch Pro” is set to make a splash with its price tag. Slated to be available in India for 4,500 rupees (approximately USD 55, though some leaks suggest $69), the smartwatch seeks to establish a competitive edge. Furthermore, CMF by Nothing is gearing up for a late September launch of not only the “Watch Pro” but also the earbuds Pro at 3500 rupees and charging brick at 3000 rupees.
As the curtain lifts on CMF by Nothing’s inaugural lineup, tech enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the official unveiling of the “Watch Pro,” a square-faced marvel that defies conventions, complements active lifestyles and does so at a fraction of the cost. With a keen eye on value and innovation, CMF’s entry into the smart device arena is poised to leave a lasting impression.
