Last week, Oppo released the first smartwatch called the Oppo Watch in Germany. The wearable has now become global and this time it also got the appropriate announcement. Unlike the Chinese variant, there are few differences inside with the world version. Well, here is everything you need to know about the smartwatch.
Oppo Watch: Price, Availability
The Oppo Watch is available in two different sizes, namely 41mm and 46mm. The first comes in a WiFi-only variant, while the second also comes in LTE connectivity with eSIM support. The 41mm is available in three color options, Black, Pink Gold, Silver Mist, while the 46mm comes in two, namely Black and Glossy Gold.
The Oppo Watch is available in Europe with a starting price of 249 EUR. For the Indian market, the wearable will cost you either 14,990 INR ($ 200) or 19,990 INR ($ 265) depending on the size. For availability, the laptop is already available for pre-booking, with shipping starting in the first half of August.
The 41 mm version of the Oppo Watch has a 1.91-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 402 x 476 pixels. The 46mm, on the other hand, has a larger 1.6-inch AMOLED, but with a resolution of 320 x 360 pixels. The global version of the Oppo Watch runs on two chipsets – Snapdragon 3100 Wear and Ambiq Micro Apollo 3. The first is used to run the Wear OS, while the second is the company’s offer that will be used for low-power operation.
The ability to run two different operating systems is the main advantage of the laptop. With Wear OS, users will be able to enjoy the features of Google Play and GPay. You can then switch to low power mode whenever you want to save some juice. Low power mode offers basic features like time, alert, alarms and more.
In standby mode, the smartwatch can last between 24 and 36 hours depending on the size. With the power save function, the Oppo watch can last for much longer 14 and 21 days, again depending on the size. Just like most laptops out there, this one also charges with a magnetic charger. The larger version can go from zero to 46% in 15 minutes, while it takes 75 minutes to fully charge. The smallest, on the other hand, will charge up to 30% in 15 minutes.
Another key difference between the sizes is the material used for the rear panel. The 46mm uses 600 series aluminum alloy with plastic + ceramic at the back. The smaller version, on the other hand, uses only plastic.
