In March, Oppo got tired of working to further consolidate its participation in the smartphone market. However, it wants to cover other areas. At the same time that this manufacturer launched the Oppo Find X2, the company also announced its first smartwatch, the Oppo Watch. The device was available exclusively on the Chinese market. However, we all knew it would only be a matter of time before we see these wearables in the global markets. This strategy makes perfect sense, not least because smartwatches and smartbands were not properly affected by COVID-19. Now and to put the machine to work, this company launched Oppo Watch in Europe and more specifically in Germany.
Oppo Watch is now available in Europe for 246 Euros
That said, customers in Germany will be able to buy the new wearable for 249 Euros. However, it should also reach other countries with the price varying with the region.
Oppo Watch is a product very inspired by the current king of the smartwatch market, we are obviously talking about the Apple Watch. In fact, it is also undeniable that this product is basically an imitation of an imitation. That is, Oppo seems to have found quite a joke to all the buzz that Xiaomi’s Mi Watch caused a few months ago, while also being very based on the design of the Apple watch.
That said, here we have a ‘square’ clock with a 3D curved screen. A dark interface to bring the battery’s autonomy to its full potential, a 4.5mm aluminum body, etc… Still, even taking into account all the imitation we have here, it is a watch that looks much better done than the Mi Watch.
After all, the 46mm watch has a 1.91 ”(402 × 473) OLED screen, appearing significantly thinner and more comfortable compared to Xiaomi’s bet.
Meanwhile, Oppo claims that we have its ColorOS Operating System here. That is, we still have no idea if it is a skin on top of Google’s WearOS, or if it is a proprietary OS based on the ‘normal’ Android. (If it’s the first, here is a big rival to Mi Watch, if it’s the second… Well… I don’t even know if I want to analyze this.)
In addition to all this, we also support Oppo’s super-fast charging system under its name VOOC. Thus, the watch that should last 40 hours of use on a single charge, also has a ‘simple’ mode that should offer 21 days of autonomy with the connected notifications. (Oppo claims that the watch can get enough battery for a day in just 15 minutes. Full charging will take 75 minutes)
