OPPO made its entry into the smartwatch market this year with the OPPO Watch. It launched in China in March and was originally expected to make its global debut in India on July 31. Surprisingly, the smartwatch has now been announced first in Germany.
The square-faced watch comes with Google apps out of the box such as Google Pay and Google Assistant according to TizenHelp.com. This means it is running a different firmware from the version sold in China which has AliPay and the Breeno Voice Assistant. The Chinese version of the smartwatch runs ColorOS Watch which is built on Android.
The OPPO Watch sold in Germany is the version with the 1.6-inch screen (41mm version). The display is a curved AMOLED panel and it has a 360 x 360 resolution and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 2500 and the low-power Apollo 3 chip. There is 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage.
The watch has Bluetooth 4.2, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, and an eSIM with support for 4G networks. It is water-resistant up to 3 ATM and packs a 300mAh battery that will last up to 14 days in low-power mode.
The OPPO Watch can track several physical activities including running, swimming, and cycling. It has sleep monitoring, a heart rate sensor, ECG, a sedentary reminder, and menstrual cycle tracking.
The OPPO Watch is priced at €249 but there is no mention of availability. It has also been reported that it will be announced in more European countries soon.
