OPPO Watch With Built-in Cellular and Flexible Hyperboloid Display Launched

OPPO Watch launched in China

After launching premium smartphones including the Find X2 series by Oppo, the company has turned the table with the next-generation OPPO Watch. The main highlight of the OPPO Watch is the integration of a 46mm 3D flexible Hyperboloid display coupled with eSIM mobile connectivity. The OPPO Watch provides support for VOOC flash charging alongside a dedicated dual-chip endurance system.

According to company sources, the display technology is an industry first with an innovative design, which is typically reserved for smartphones. The launch of the Oppo Watch will set new benchmarks in the IoT segment.

The smartwatch is the first wearable to ship with fast charging when the competitor ships identical products with standard charging capabilities. The availability of eSIM will help you to take advantage of smartphone convenience on a smartwatch.

OPPO Watch Design

OPPO Watch display and design

The OPPO Watch features a slim design profile with AMOLED display. The combination of a 4.5mm aluminum frame alongside a 3D curved glass crystal design gives the watch a premium feel. The integration of a 3D ceramic design on the rear side alongside sensors helps you to maximize contact with the skin without exerting pressure. The band is designed using either Italian calfskin or fluoro rubber.

You will be able to buy Oppo Watch in a wide range of colors as per your requirements. You can easily remove the band by pushing a single button.

OPPO Watch Specifications & Features

The OPPO Watch 46mm variant boasts a 1.91-inch AMOLED ultra-frameless display with a 72.76 percent screen-to-body ratio. With a pixel density of 326PPI, the display offers a resolution of 402×476 pixels. The band helps you to read more content than the competitors because of the frameless design. The OPPO Watch automatically switches between Snapdragon Wear 2500 and Apollo processors respectively via the dual-chip endurance system.

The OPPO Watch provides support for heart rate monitoring with 5 exercise sensors including activity and breathing reminders. The watch also keeps track of sleep quality via a comprehensive tracking system. The watch generates your deep and light sleep times including awake times. A detailed heart rate chart will be displayed via the HeyTap Health app. The watch also offers monthly cycle monitoring for female users. Moreover, the Oppo watch is resistant to water up to 50 meters.

The watch also provides support for eSIM functionality, which helps you to stay connected in an efficient way. The band is designed in such a way that it can share a phone number with your smartphone. You can also use a dedicated phone number with a new eSIM for the purpose of voice calls and web browsing.

Oppo has bundled an app store, where you can access several third-party apps for travel, social media, and entertainment. The addition of an AI watch face is capable of generating a wallpaper that matches the user’s style and outfit to provide a revolutionary experience every day.

OPPO Watch Fast Charging

The watch is capable of working up to 40 hours on a single charge if you work with the Smart Mode. The Power Save Mode only displays basic functions such as notifications with 21 days of working time on a single charge.

The inclusion of VOOC Flash Charging technology helps you to charge the watch up to 46 percent with 15 minutes of charging, which is sufficient for the whole day.

The resemblance to Apple Watch

The OPPO Watch is a definite advantage over Apple Watch because of the sleep tracking although the design remains identical. You will find that the OPPO Watch is thinner than Apple Watch by several miles. The integration of fast charging makes Oppo’s new watch a sweet spot. Apple provides limited watch faces even though all of them are the best of the lot. We don’t expect both Apple and Oppo would allow third-party watch faces.

OPPO Watch Pricing and Availability

OPPO Watch Series will be available globally and will hit the store shelves in mainland China from March 24. The 46mm variant will go for CNY 1,999 ($288) while the 41mm version will retail for CNY 1,499 ($215). We expect a global launch by the end of April. The Coronavirus outbreak could force the company to postpone the global launch beyond April as well.
