With the Wear OS segment lacking real innovation due to its near monopoly on fossil-marked hardware, it’s great to see new players enter space. As the first Opear Wear OS device, Oppo Watches are now officially becoming global, with a familiar design, but with an interesting shot of the wearable Google OS.
Smart watches have only been launched in China, but have come with an “Android-based” operating system. Of course, this is not the case when Oppo Watch is marketed in Western markets. In addition to some features and features exclusive to Oppo, we also get Google’s standard Wear operating system, including Google Fit, Google Pay, Google Now, and all the apps you̵7;ve known and loved in the Play Store.
Oppo’s first Wear OS smart watches will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset, but also come with an Ambiq Micro Apollo3 processor to help extend life and longevity. The smart watch comes with only one storage and RAM configuration, with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage available no matter which model is selected.
However, Oppo watches have two configurations. There is a 41 mm model that includes a 1.6-inch square AMOLED display with a resolution of 320 × 360 pixels at 301 ppi. The battery measures at 300 mAh, which should take approximately 24 hours in “normal” use, but can be extended up to 14 days after power saving mode is activated.
For those who want a “real” OS experience with the new Oppo Watch, the 46 mm model can be more attractive. The larger model features LTE connectivity, a 1.9-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 402 × 476 pixels at 326ppi plus a maximum brightness of 1,000 nits. The battery is also slightly larger at 430 mAh and should be a good 30 hours when in “smart mode” or up to 21 days when power saving mode is activated.
One of the main advantages of both smart watches is the compatibility with the SuperVOOC flash charging technology, in which the Oppo Watch is refilled from 0% within 75 minutes using the included brick with a magnetic pin.
Both smart watches have a very well-known look and feel like the Apple Watch and come with aluminum alloy frames, although only the 46 mm model comes with a ceramic plate. Removable straps are also available. Leather, silicone and rubber options are available on the day of issue.
From 3 September, you can pick up a 41-hour Oppo watch in black, pink, gold or silver for £ 229. While the 46mm Wear OS Oppo Watch will be available in black or gold at £ 369 in the UK. While we are confident that consumers in the United States will be particularly interested, Oppo has now stated that “there are no plans to launch in the United States.”
