THIS ISN’T AN APPLE WATCH, SURPRISINGLY AN OPPO WATCH
A wearable known as Oppo Watch just launched with an uneasy to differentiate Apple’s iconic design. It’s also known, a good number of wearable company borrowed greatly from the U.S. tech giant Apple’s wearable, amazingly, it’s hard to figure out if any have replicated Apple as Oppo. Fitbit had also moved in this direction of hardware design considering its Versa spec, you will argue that it’s needless to get too close to those similarities.
Looking at the press material, the wearable from Oppo – simply put – promises a dead ringer for the best-selling smartwatch. A watch which comes in two versions, a 73% screen-to-body ratio for the 45mm version and the 65% on the 41mm, which is a notable feature of the “dual-curved screen” that allows the watch face to occupy more space on the device. But that isn’t the first thing to be figured out, however, the first and most-important that differentiates this wearable from Apple’s Watch is the fact that Oppo runs Wear OS.
It’s evident, there are relatively few options for hardware makers intending to drift from the traditional circular watch face. This could be a game-changer if all goes well with Oppo. If the device impresses greatly it could result in a huge drift in market demands. But looking fashion, Oppo Watch could potentially rival Apple’s Watch.
Oppo’s wear promises good features, there is a Wi-Fi and LTE version of the larger model, while both feature GPS+GLONASS tracking coupled with sleep tracking and heart-rate monitoring. If you’re going for this watch you need not worry over daily battery charging due to in-built battery-saver mode that should keep it alive for a few weeks. The battery is 430mAh on the big one and 300mAh on the smaller, which implies about 36 hours of life on a single charge, according to the company, while the duration of full charging back to full capacity is about 75 minutes.
For those in the select markets, these watches are available but, you’re in a market for Wear OS watch, be careful, these devices could be mistaken for an Apple Watch.
