While most of the hype around Oppo last month centered around its hotly anticipated Find X2 flagship smartphones, the company also unveiled its first smartwatch.
The new Oppo Watch has the appearance and characteristics that should attract the attention of those who are looking for a premium class of this kind of wearable gadgets. Starting from the display, Oppo introduces a 326 ppi curved AMOLED panel covering 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. It comes in 1.6-inch and 1.9-inch housing options, which has an aluminum assembly and two side buttons for navigating the interface.
The Oppo watch can track a wide range of exercise, your sleep, and heart rate, but they also offer an electrocardiogram (ECG) feature, which is not very common.
The Snapdragon Wear 2500 chipset works together with the Apollo 3 coprocessor. On board there is 8 GB of memory. There is no SIM slot, but eSIM allows Oppo Watch to get complete independence from your smartphone on media that supports it. There is also a built-in GPS module, as well as NFC and Bluetooth 4.2 connections. The watch will only work in conjunction with Android devices on 6.0 Marshmallow and above.
Depending on the task, the watch can switch between the Snapdragon Wear chipset and the Apolo coprocessor to maximize battery life. Oppo claims that the gadget can work 40 hours on a single charge under normal use, while the energy-saving profile can extend the work up to 21 days.
Oppo watches will debut in China, but it is not yet known when they will enter international markets. Pre-orders will begin today – March 6, and official sales – March 24.
The 46 mm version will be sold for 1.999 yuan ($ 288), while the 41 mm version will be sold for 1.499 yuan ($ 215).
