Although it appears to be like lots just like the Apple Watch, the bigger Oppo Watch truly has twin curved edges that the corporate describes as a “flexible AMOLED”, whereas the 41mm mannequin is flat. Depending on the scale you select, you’ll be getting both a giant 1.91-inch or 1.6-inch 1,000-nit touchscreen that needs to be simply readable in daylight.
The smaller model has a 300mAh battery that ought to assist it last as long as 24 hours of normal smartwatch use and 14 days in an influence saver mode. Meanwhile, the larger Watch has a 430mAh cell with an estimated 36-hour runtime for the WiFi mannequin. LTE will clearly faucet the battery extra and Oppo expects the mobile possibility to last as long as 30 hours. In Power Saver, the 46mm ought to hold round for 21 days, whether or not it’s WiFi or LTE.
These modes are just like these you’d see on Wear OS watches powered by the Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset, so the watch nonetheless performs primary options like displaying the time and counting your steps whereas it’s operating on low energy. But Oppo additionally presents issues like notifications and coronary heart charge monitoring in its Power Saver mode, making it barely extra helpful.
The most intriguing factor concerning the Oppo Watch is the tweaks the corporate made to Wear OS on its machine. It’s not nearly customized watch faces, though Oppo’s default watch face helpfully shows your energy burned and steps taken. There’s additionally a HeyTap Health app that makes the Oppo Watch a bit higher at monitoring your well being metrics than the common Wear OS watch. For instance, you’ll get brief exercise tutorial movies and coached coaching periods, in addition to sleep monitoring. Runners may even respect the onboard GPS for mapping their routes, whereas those that like swimming will welcome the water resistance of as much as 5 ATM.
This is a compelling set of options. But till we learn about US pricing and might get our arms on one to check out, I’m reserving judgement — a formidable specs record is sweet, however what issues extra is the actual world expertise.
