It’s been just a few days since OPPO announced the launch of its first smartwatch — the rather obviously named OPPO Watch. The product, if you recall, was introduced to the world alongside the OPPO Find X2 series. While OPPO had confirmed that this OPPO Watch would go on sale in China starting March 26, the company maintained a stoic silence over the launch of this product in other markets — including India. Today, however, we found that the OPPO Watch has passed through BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) certification.
OPPO Watch coming to India?
Until now, the possible launch of the OPPO Watch in India was unclear. However, the recent appearance on the BIS website seems to be an indication that OPPO is seriously looking at launching this smartwatch in the country.
What we still do not know is the timeline of this plausible India launch. Considering that OPPO’s archrival Huawei is also reportedly planning to bring its newest smartwatch the Huawei Watch GT 2e to India by the end of the month, there is a possibility that the OPPO Watch could make it to India earlier than expected.
OPPO Watch Specifications, Features
The main talking point of the OPPO Watch is its 3D flexible hyperboloid display, which is an industry-first. The watch comes with OPPO’s own Dual-Chip Endurance System, which involves two processors. For intensive tasks, the watch uses a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, while for less-intensive tasks, it uses OPPO’s own ‘Apollo’ processor.
The OPPO Watch also gets VOOC based fast charging technology as well as cellular connectivity and boasts of multiple health and fitness tracking features. The flexible hyperboloid AMOLED display measures 1.91-inches across and boasts of 72.76% screen-to-body ratio with a resolution of 402×476 pixels.
At the rear, the watch gets an integrated 3D ceramic design along with sensors that are designed to maximize contact with the skin without exerting too much pressure. It also comes with a comprehensive health monitoring system and has 5 exercise sensors. The OPPO Watch runs an Android-based version of ColorOS customized for smartwatches.
As soon as we get further information about the India-launch of the OPPO Watch, we will post additional details. Keep watching this space!
