Although the OPPO Find X2 series had been in the limelight since its launch last Friday, we think the OPPO Watch deserves a few eyeballs too.
We say that because it’s so similar to the Apple Watch that it might interest some of you who want a cheaper, Android alternative instead.
The watch has a curved AMOLED panel and is available in either 1.6-inch (41mm) or 1.91-inch (46mm) sizes. The display pushes a pixel density of 326 ppi and DCI-P3 color gamut. The body itself is all aluminium with two side buttons, instead of a dial like the Apple Watch.
Under the hood, it packs a Snapdragon Wear 2500 chipset with an Apollo 3 co-processor. The watch switches between the two chips depending on the task at hand – the latter chip will be used to maximize battery life. There is 8GB of internal storage too and runs on OPPO’s own ColorOS Watch UI.
The watch is capable of tracking physical exercises, sleep patterns, heart rate and even offer a ECG functionality. Plus, it has a water resistance rating of 5ATM.
It has e-SIM support with no slots for physical SIM cards; it also packs NFC, a GPS module and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity.
Another impressive feature is that the watch supports OPPO’s VOOC charging, which the company claims can charge the watch in 17 minutes. OPPO also claims that the watch can last 40 hours in a single charge and up to 21 hours if power saving mode is turned on.
The OPPO Watch will first be launched in China and is priced at CNY1,499 (RM910) for the 41mm variant, and CNY1,999 (RM1,214) for the 46mm model. There’s no word yet on when it’ll be coming to Malaysia, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated on our website. Meanwhile, the OPPO Find X2 series is officially launching in the country tomorrow – so stay tuned as we bring you the official local prices.
