Oppo has been teasing the Oppo Watch for quite some time now, with images revealing a very Apple-like wearable.
Now, the Oppo Watch is finally here and it’s what we’ve been expecting: a more affordable watch than Apple’s offering.
Clocking in at under $300, the Oppo Watch brings the usual notifications, from heart rate monitoring to fitness tracking or music playback.
“OPPO Watch’s flexible hyperboloid display is an innovative design typically reserved for smartphones. The 46mm version features a 1.91-inch AMOLED screen with a 72.76% screen-to-body ratio, 402×476 resolution, and 326ppi density for extra detail,” says Oppo.
The aluminum frame is 4.5 mm but definitely looks much sleeker in the official images.
What we speculated last week, the eSim-based cellular connectivity, was confirmed as well.
What isn’t confirmed is WearOS. We thought the Oppo Watch might use Google’s popular WearOS but it instead relies on ColorOS, another software based on Android.
What’s truly interesting about the Oppo Watch is definitely the battery.
Oppo used VOOC fast-charging for it, which means you can charge it to 0 to 46% in just 15 minutes.
A full charge will take 75 minutes and gives you 40 hours of regular use.
Switch to power-saving mode, and Oppo says the Oppo Watch goes to 21 days with notifications enabled.
The Oppo Watch goes on sale in China on March 24th, with more territories to follow after.
The 41 mm variant retails there for about $215, while the 46mm one goes up to around $280.
