Oppo released its first smartwatch along with the Find X2 series in an online stream event. The Oppo watch looks very similar to Apple watch in design and functionality, but considering the features, it provides at the price is unmatchable. Also, it’s for Android enthusiasts who don’t want to get into Apple’s ecosystem.

The Oppo Watch features a 46mm chassis, a 402 x 473 1.91-inch OLED panel, a fitness tracker, a heart-rate sensor, water-resistance up to 50 meters, and eSIM support. The eSIM feature is one of the most prominent features which allows users to stay connected with voice calls and internet access. The eSIM for the Oppo watch can have its separate number or it can share the number with a Smartphone. So the Oppo watch can work independently with its full functionality without the need for a Smartphone.

It also supports Oppo’s latest VOOC fast-charging, which can charge the watch up to 46 percent in about 15 minutes. Oppo says it should last for approximately 40 hours with normal usage or up to 21 days with its built-in power-saving mode. For charging the Oppo Watch fits into a housing having magnetic pins which is included in the retail box.

Oppo watch will be available in China from March 24, while the global version will launch somewhere in April end. Oppo confirmed the software it runs is the ColorOS tweaked for smartwatches and not the proprietary Google’s WearOS. Oppo also said it may run different software depending on the market. The price of the watch is disruptive for the performance and features it offers. It will be available for just 1,499 Yuan or $215.
