Amid numerous launches, OPPO seems to be gearing up for the launch of a new fitness tracker in India soon. The upcoming OPPO Band has been spotted on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification site. The fitness band was already launched in the Chinese market back in June last year and now it seems that it’s making its way to the Indian market and global market as well. Here’s a closer look at the OPPO Band BIS listing.
Tipster Mukul Sharma shared a post on his official Twitter handle suggesting that the smart band is listed on BIS. According to his tweet, the OPPO Band is listed with OB19BI model number and the band has received the certification. Considering the approval from BIS certification we can expect an imminent launch of the device.
OPPO Band Specification and Features
As mentioned above the OPPO Band was launched in China back in June 2020 in three variants including the OPPO Band, OPPO Band EVA, and OPPO Band Fashion Edition. Besides, colour options, strap size, NFC support, and band material all the three variants sport the same specifications.
The OPPO Band flaunts a 1.1-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 126×294 pixels. The company also claims that the display offers 100 percent DCI-P3 colour gamut and features a 2.5 curved glass protection.

The OPPO Band is fuelled by a 100mAh battery and the company claims that the smart band is capable enough of delivering a battery of two weeks (14 days) in a single full charge. The company offers 160 watch faces which can be set on the band as per user’s requirement. Under the hood, the OPPO Band is powered by the Apollo 3 chipset and 5ATM certification that offers water-resistance up to 50 meters.
OPPO Band Expected Price in India
The OPPO Band was launched in China with a price point of CNY 199 (approx Rs 2,250) . We can expect the fitness tracker to arrive at a similar price point in the Indian market. At this price bracket, the OPPO Band will become the direct competition for Xiaomi Mi Band 5 and OnePlus Band.
