Forget your dusty old Wear OS devices. The new OPPO Watch promises to shake up the world of Android laptops with its high-quality AMOLED screen, real-time heart rate monitoring and Watch VOOC fast charging technology. It will be launched in the UK later this year, although OPPO has not announced an exact date or pricing.
OPPO Watch comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100 chipset, 1 GB RAM and 8 GB storage, which puts it on a par with Fossil Gen 5. It uses real-time heart rate measurement and Google Fit to track your movements, whether you are training, resting or sleep. And like other Wear OS devices, OPPO Watch works with Google Assistant, Google Pay, Google Maps and the Google Play Store.
Oh, does OPPO Watch look familiar to you? Maybe it’s because it was launched in China earlier this year with a customized version of Android OS. In addition to its operating system, the British OPPO clock is identical to its Chinese counterpart. It has the same curved AMOLED screen, detachable bracelet and color, black, pink, gold and silver.
What is it? You say it looks like an Apple Watch? Unfortunately, never heard of it.
OPPO plans to sell its stylish smartwatch in 41 mm and 46 mm configurations. The smaller model is Wi-Fi only with a 300mAh battery that should last a full day of regular use. But the larger 45mm model includes LTE connectivity and a 36-hour 439mAh battery. Both sizes work with OPPO’s proprietary Watch VOOC fast charging technology, which provides 16 hours of power from a 15-minute charge.
People in the UK should have a chance to buy OPPO Watch 41mm and 46mm before the end of the year. We still do not know the exact release date or pricing of the device. We have contacted OPPO for more information, including whether it plans to sell OPPO Watch in the United States.
