Right alongside the company’s crown jewel – Find X2, we got Oppo’s new watch, aptly named Oppo Watch. It sports a squarish curved glass display in a 4.5mm-thick case. It calls this display as 3D flexible hyperboloid and touts it as an industry first for a smartwatch. The rest of the feature set includes their in-house VOOC fast charging mechanism, the usual set of fitness trackers, and eSIM-based cellular connectivity.
Here are the full details –
The screen stretches 1.91-inches diagonally and is an OLED panel with a 402×473 resolution. This offers a 72.76% screen-to-body ratio and 326ppi density. The aluminum frame has 4.5mm thickness and a 44mm diameter. The face has little to no bezels which add to its looks.
The strap comes in Italian calfskin or fluoro rubber with multiple color options. It is easily detachable by pressing a single button.
Now that design and display is done, let’s get down to the features –
- You can listen to music
- Make payments
- The built-in app store gives access to 3rd party apps
- AI-generated wallpaper for watch face matching your attire.
- 5 exercise sensors
- Water-resistant up to 50 meters
- monitor sleep quality
- monitor heart rate
- activity and breathing reminders
- monthly cycle monitoring for female users
- Pair with their HeyTap Health app on your Android phones to sync all health data.
The watch conveniently switches between a Snapdragon chip and an Apollo chip depending on the power usage mode. Oppo calls it Dual-Chip Endurance System. The modes are –
- Smart Mode which claims a 40-hour use time on a single charge.
- Power Saver Mode which limits to basic functions such as time and notifications and thus vaunts a 21 days endurance on one charge.
Oppo claims the VOOC charging can fill 46-percent charge in just 15 minutes, and full it in 75 minutes.
Pricing and Availability
OPPO Watch Series will retail for 1,499 yuan (~Rs. 16001) in mainland China from March 24. And soon, it will soon come in versions “tailored” to other markets. We suppose the global variant will ship with WearOS, as opposed to ColorOS on Chinese edition.
