OPPO Watch Officially Launched; Looks Like An Apple Watch But Has Better Battery

If you're looking for an Android version of the Apple Watch then...

It's been teased for a while now and based on renders alone it was obvious; the Oppo Watch looks just like the Apple Watch, even more so if you just take a glance at it. Now that it has been officially launched alongside the much anticipated Oppo Find X2, we now have a clearer look at what the device can offer as well as its price.

In terms of display, the Oppo Watch comes with a curved AMOLED panel with 326 ppi, covering 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. There are two sizes to look out for; the 1.6-inch and 1.9-inch. In a square formate, they come with minimal bezels all around and the casing features an aluminum build and two side buttons for navigating the interface, just like the Apple Watch.

Packed in is a Snapdragon Wear 2500 chipset for performance alongside an Apollo 3 co-processor for better battery life with an onboard storage of 8GB. With a single charge, you can get 40-hours of usage which is more than double than the Apple Watch and 4 hours more than the Xiaomi Watch. To stretch it further is the Power Saver Mode,where you can get up to 21 days on a single charge though it will lack certain features significantly. Being Oppo, you can also expect VOOC fast charging capabilities which allows it to top-up 50% of its battery in less than 20 minutes.

The Oppo Watch is capable of eSIM so you can use the device without needing your smartphone nearby. There's also GPW as well as NFC and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity. It's important to note that the watch will only pair with Android devices on 6.0 Marshmallow and above.

For fitness tracking, the device can track a broad range of physical exercises, and even your sleep and heart rate. There's also the addition of electrocardiogram (ECG), which is definitely a rare but great addition to the device. And you can take it swimming as the device is rated 5ATM for water resistance.

In China, the 46mm variant will go for CNY1999 (~RM1212) while the 41mm version will retail for CNY1499 (~RM909). While Oppo has mentioned that they will launch the device globally at some point, there's no further update on this yet.
