Recently, Nothing launched a sub-brand called CMF by Nothing, which will launch with smartwatches and a few other products, as well as fully wireless headphones and a charger based on gallium nitride (GaN) transistors, the Telegram channel reported. Alchemist Leaks.
The authors of the resource have published internal marketing materials with the first products under the CMF by Nothing brand: a 65 W three-port GaN charger, Buds Pro TWS noise-cancelling headphones and Watch Pro smartwatches. Perhaps of most interest is the latest device – Nothing’s first smartwatch. They have a square case with rounded corners and an orange strap that seems to come straight out of the case – either it’s not removable, or a proprietary design is used here.
The Watch Pro features an AMOLED display that is expected to support Always On with a brightness of up to 600 nits (compared to the Google Pixel Watch up to 1000 nits) and a screen refresh rate of up to 50Hz. The software platform lets you choose from 100 watch faces and track up to 100 workout types. Sensors measure heart rate and blood oxygen levels, and monitor stress levels and sleep quality. The main feature is expected to be support for calls over Bluetooth with “AI Noise Cancellation”. The battery lasts 13 days even if the display is always on.
Smartwatches will run on a different software platform than Wear OS, which is predictable for a budget device, and Nothing’s founder, Carl Pei, has previously called Google’s ultra-mobile platform “useless.” CMF’s smartwatch will cost around $55 (or $69 if other sources are to be believed) and will go on sale along with the earbuds and charger in late September.
