Oppo launches a first-of-its-kind smartwatch

The new Oppo smartwatch, which is available in a couple of different versions, has been launched.

The 41mm Bluetooth-connected Oppo Watch will be £229 and Amazon will be selling it in black, silver or Rose Gold from September 3rd. It comes with speedy VOOC Flash Charging, GPS and the ability to quickly swap-out the watch strap. It comes with five workout sensors and targeted workout modes. It gets an AMOLED display

Meanwhile, the Oppo Watch 46mm 4G model has a world-first dual-curve display and that VOOC Flash Charging which, on this model, sees you get 16 hours of usage from a quick 15 minute charge. It’s going to cost £369 and will be available in black or Glossy Gold from October. There’s sleep tracking, always-on heart rate monitoring and five-minute wrist workouts (we won’t ask). Google Fit also means there’s support additional tracked exercises.

You get the entire range of Google apps and services at a glance, including Google Maps and Google Pay.

A range of straps are available and you can switch watch-faces to match your mood or outfit.

Kevin Cho, Managing Director at OPPO Mobile UK, told us..

With this launch, we are celebrating new ways to connect with the home, office or gym while on the move – something that will become increasingly important as we emerge from lockdown. With a battery life of up to 30 hours – that can be extended to 21 days in Power Save mode – we were determined to design a watch with our UK customers in mind that meant they were never caught short while on the go

In addition, Oppo have announced new True Wireless Headphones – the Oppo Enco W11, Enco W31 and Enco W51. They’ll be coming to the UK. The “Enco W51” headphones come with wireless charging, professional audio quality and touch controls.

Meanwhile the Enco W31 comes with two audio modes and the Enco W11 have Bluetooth 5.0 and 20 hours of battery life plus powerful bass.

So, there we have it, and I didn’t say anything about how much the Oppo smartwatches look like Apple Watches..
