The Oppo Watch will only be on the market in a few weeks, but a first hands-on video has already appeared in which you can take a closer look at the smartwatch. The display edges look a bit larger than expected, but the watch looks otherwise quite similar to the Apple Watch.
Oppo just launched its first smartwatch a few days ago. The watch is available in sizes 41 and 46 mm, the display has a resolution of 402 x 473 pixels in both cases. Oppo uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2500 with 1 GB RAM and 8 GB flash memory. The almost two-year-old chip was originally intended for children’s smartwatches, the performance almost corresponds to that of the four-year-old Snapdragon Wear 2100.
The performance of the watch does not even come close to the performance of the Apple Watch Series 5 (from 443 euros on Amazon), which brings a lot of power with its Apple S5 SiP, but the battery life of 21 days is also significantly longer than that the 18 hours that Apple promises. The design that is suspiciously similar to the Apple Watch in connection with the lower price could convince some potential customers to choose the Oppo Watch, which will be launched on March 21 in China at prices starting at 191 euros.
The first hands-on video can now be seen in the tweet embedded below. Even if it only takes a few seconds, it can be seen quite well how the watch and its display edges will look in practice. It is questionable whether the watch can gain a decent market share with its Android-based ColorOS operating system with this case and the average configuration.
