Oppo Watch launches OS watch globally for the first time


The Ware OS segment lacks any real innovation due to the near monopoly of fossil-branded hardware, it’s great to see new players entering the space. Oppo’s first Wear OS device, the Oppo Watch is now officially going global today with a familiar design but an interesting take on the Google wearable OS.

The smartwatch has only been launched in China, but has come with an “Android-based” operating system. It is not clear that Oppo Watch is now launching in western markets. Along with some of the Oppo-exclusive features and functions, we will also get the standard Wear OS of Google, including Google Fit, Google Pay, Google Assistant and all the apps you know and like on the Play Store.

Oppo’s first Wear OS smartwatch will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset, but it also has an Ambic Micro Apollo 3 co-processor that will help with extended lifespan and longevity. The smartwatch comes with only one storage and RAM configuration, with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage available, no matter the model.

The Oppo Watch however comes in two size configurations. There is a 41 mm model that includes a 301-inch 320-inch by 320 × 360 pixel resolution with a square AMOLED display. The battery measures at 300mAh, which should be in “normal” use for about 24 hours, but can be extended up to 14 days when the power saving mode is activated.
