With the new normal life of social distancing and self-quarantining, we have seen a drastic change in our health and fitness routines. Our gyms have mostly shifted indoors, we are more desk-bound for work and even our sleep patterns have been affected by doomscrolling and pandemic anxiety. So, we could all use some sort of tool to bring our physical and mental health in order. Enter OPPO Band Style that promises to Activate Your Health!
With the Band Style, OPPO continues a streak of smart wearables that boasts both trendy appeal and technological advancements. For starters, this is OPPO’s first-ever Band that sports SpO2 tracking for continuous blood oxygen tracking. It also features real-time heart rate monitoring, sleep analysis, and other trackers to monitor your health round the clock. Besides, you’ll also get to log up to 12 workout modes. All these come accessible within a best-in-class 2.79cm (1.1”) AMOLED screen and a suave design.
After the impressive OPPO Watch, we expected nothing short of excellence from the brand’s new wearable offering. Let’s elaborate on why this Band lives up to our expectations with style!
OPPO Band Style: Smart and Reliable Health Monitoring
A happy and healthy day is partly thanks to a good night’s sleep. In the dint of its pièce de résistance ie., the SpO2 monitoring, you will get a comprehensive insight into your entire eight-hour sleep period. In this duration, we saw that it runs up to 28,800 times recording the respiratory rate and blood oxygen saturation (both HbO2 and Hb) in various stages of your sleep cycle. The ensuing data and the accompanying feedback will be helpful to you in inculcating better sleeping habits. You will also be able to get a prognosis of any serious sleep disorders you might have from the irregularities in the recorded sleep patterns.
Detecting sleep disorders is just one of the benefits of a pulse oximeter (SpO2 monitor). It is also beneficial in assessing the health of individuals with cardiovascular and respiratory diseases (say COVID 19). It lets them know the prevailing oxygen levels in their bloodstream and also the effectiveness of medications and surgeries they might’ve undergone lately.
Band Style also takes care of another major component in your circulatory health, ie., your heart. It gives you real-time heart health data courtesy of all-day tracking. This not only tells you the intensity of your exercise but also alerts you of any abnormality in the heart beating. Even in regular cases, it will give you an idea of how much energy you are using and how many calories, in turn, you are burning — all while ensuring you don’t over-exert yourself. Isn’t this amazing!
The main purpose of a fitness band is well, helping us realize our current health parameters, record our fitness stats and aid us in achieving our wellness objectives. OPPO Band Style does all of these with aplomb!
OPPO Band Style: Chic and Sportive design
OPPO offers the Band Style in black and vanilla color. It comes with a metal buckle that lets the wristband to be adjusted in 360 degrees to your comfort.
Up top, there is a large 2.79cm (1.1”) full-color display with a 2.5D curved glass that protects against scratch and rigors. This is a large expanse for the fingers to glide across different screens and menus. That along with bright and true-to-life colors (100% DCI-P3 wide color gamut) makes interacting with the on-screen elements a smooth affair.
We also found that the exciting screen becomes even more interesting thanks to the choice of 40 unique watch face designs. You get 5 watch faces pre-installed while the rest are downloadable from the HeyTap app. You can personalize the wearable’s look depending on your mood. So, customizability is on point here and you are pretty much sorted on the Style front.
OPPO Band Style: Flex Hard Play Hard
With the OPPO Band Style, you get to analyze how moving your muscles contribute to your health. There are 12 workout modes including Outdoor Run, Indoor Run, Outdoor Walk, Yoga, Outdoor Cycling, Indoor Cycling, Elliptical, Rowing, Badminton, Swimming, Cricket, and Fat Burn Run. The lattermost (i.e., Fat Burn mode) is custom-made with a fat loss guide and progress meter that will help you lose the excess plump and tone down.
As mentioned, swimming is also present in the list. This works great in the OPPO Band Style because of its 5ATM water-resistance viz. up to 50 meters. This means you get to record laps and calories burnt whilst swimming without worrying about water damage.
Additionally, if you happen to slack off, the sedentary alerts and goal-reminders will ensure you stay active throughout your day. This is a thoughtful feature to have, especially in the current work-from-home rut.
Now as you indulge in your favorite sports, the band will be keeping track of your daily activity records, length of each activity instance, calories burnt, and heart rate. We were amazed to see that we can also set goals, stay abreast of the data-backed results showcased in easy-to-follow bars, and get relevant instructions to hit the targets in time.
The 12 activity tracking offered not only cover all the common sports but also help gauge routine activities in a more comprehensive manner. Hence, OPPO Band Style will be a no-brainer companion to all your athletic endeavors.
OPPO Band Style: Stay Connected Stay Well
Before diving into all the above features and functions, what kicks off the experience on a pleasing note is the pairing process. It is simple as it gets using the HeyTap Health app Once the phone and the Band Style are synced, you can get real-time phone notifications, control the music playback, and spot the phone’s location. The repertoire also consists of a wake-up alarm, weather forecast report, camera control, call rejection, among other things.
All these come powered by a 100 mAh battery that can eke out up to 12 day’s worth of runtime. And when it seeks charge, plug the bundled proprietary adapter that will fill it up full in just 1.5 hours.
Therefore, with the Band Style, you can healthily and smartly navigate through the new normal without any charging anxiety.
OPPO Band Style: A Class Act
OPPO Band Style is built to spec, but where it outpaces the competition is the way the OPPO engineers have crafted a perfect blend between function and form. OPPO designers have given due attention to detail and hence the Band Style is far from a cookie-cutter band. Its sleek form factor justifies the Style suffix. The 40+ watch face collection will have something fresh each day to catch your fancy. Match it with the dapper black or charming vanilla strap to suit your wear. It is sure to catch the onlooker’s gaze.
Now, if Style is one side of the coin, the other presents a barrage of features that ensure you are motivated to remain fit and fine. Everything from the cutting-edge SpO2, 24×7 heart health, and sleep monitors to the dozens of sports activity trackers, nifty phone notifications, movement reminders, and fitness guidance, the OPPO Band Style brings it all. As such, it is not just a class act, it is a class apart and a meaningful part of the robust OPPO smart device ecosystem.
