Electronics manufacturer OPPO has today announced their Wear OS powered OPPO Watch, as well as their range of Enco wireless earphones are heading to Australia. OPPO has also taken the opportunity to tease their new online store for wearables they’ll be launching this month.
The OPPO Watch was announced in India last month, but is making its way to Australia in two sizes – 41mm and 46mm. The watch is powered by Google’s Wear OS smartwatch operating system based on Android, and comes with access to all the Wear OS apps on the Google Play Store.
OPPO have packed their smartwatch with features including a 3D flexible hyperboloid display, which has thin bezels and allows for the 1.91-inch AMOLED screen to have a miniscule 72.76% screen-to-body ratio giving it an “ultra-frameless” design.
Design wise the comparisons are of course going to skew towards the Apple Watch, but if you like the Apple design, but not the requirement to use an iPhone then this is a great looking option.
The OPPO watch uses a Snapdragon Wear 3100 & Ambiq Micro Apollo3 SoC in a ‘Dual-Chip Endurance System’ for improved battery performance. The setup allows them to provide 36-hour use time on one charge, or up to 21 days in ‘Power Save’ mode providing only basic functions like time.
Recharging the watch will be fast though, with OPPO launching the watch with their all-new Watch VOOC Flash Charging technology. The Watch VOOC Flash Charging allows you to get a 46% charge from just 15 minutes of charging time, or a full charge in just 75 minutes.
The watch also includes five exercise sensors for exercise tracking. There’s also water resistance (up to 50meters for the 46mm and up to 30 meters for the 41mm), so you can swim and shower without worry.
