Oppo has unveiled in China its new connected watch, the Oppo Watch 2. It enjoys record autonomy and could offer a brand new version of Wear OS.
Oppo presents its Watch 2 in China
After the first version of its connected watch, Oppo has just made the Oppo Watch 2 official in China. This does not change drastically, but some improvements will surely delight users.
First of all, Oppo boasts a record 16-day battery life, possible with the Power Saver mode. In standard use, the OPPO Watch 2 can last up to 4 days on a single charge. In addition, the OPPO Watch 2 uses Watch VOOC fast charging technology which can provide up to an hour of use after a 10-minute charge. OPPO uses Ultra Dynamic Dual Engine (UDDE) technology which it claims extends battery life.
Then it has over 100 sports modes, 24-hour heart rate tracking, and SpO2 blood oxygen monitoring. Finally, it has a sleep analysis, an assessment of the risk of snoring, and stress monitoring.
Compatibility with the new Wear OS?
The main question about it concerns its software. Launched for the moment only in China, it runs under the RTOS software, already used on the OnePlus Watch, but also on Amazfit or Zepp watches. However, Oppo’s first connected watch is available in the rest of the world under Wear OS. It is therefore likely that this is also the case with the Oppo Watch when it was launched in Europe.
Google recently unveiled the new version of its operating system in collaboration with Samsung. Wear OS 3 seems for the moment reserved for watches equipped with the SoC Snapdragon Wear 4100. With the TicWatch E3 and Pro 3, the Oppo Watch 2 is one of the only watches to be able to claim the unified platform of Samsung and Google.
It would then be one of the first watches on the market under Wear OS 3.
Official only in China, the Oppo Watch is priced at 1,299 yuan (around € 170) for the entry-level Bluetooth model (42mm) and 1,499 yuan (around € 195) for the 42mm version. eSIM compatible. Finally, the 46mm model is priced at 2,000 yuan, or around € 260.
