Oppo launches Apple Watch competitor with eSIM support: All about you want to know!


Oppo has launched its first smartwatch. The company is calling it the Oppo Watch. It comes in two sizes of 41mm and 46mm. The watch runs on a custom version of ColorOS, tailored for smartwatches and based on Google’s Wear OS. Moreover, it supports the proprietary Watch VOOC Flash Charge fast charging technology.
As repeatedly teased by Oppo itself, Oppo is making a watch called the Oppo Watch, and today it got revealed in full. It looks extremely similar to the Apple Watch — not just because of its curved glass and square-ish screen, but also the integrated bands and the black-heavy UI. Its 4.5mm-thick aluminum frame, however, looks considerably thinner.

The Oppo Watch features a curved flexible AMOLED display and has two physical buttons on the side. The 41mmm variant has a 1.6-inch AMOLED display with 320×360 pixels resolution. In contrast, the 46mm model packs a 1.91-inch display with 402×476 pixels resolution and 326ppi pixel density. It is only compatible with Android phones as of now. However, work on adding support for the iOS ecosystem is currently underway.

The watch is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2500 SoC, but there is an Apollo co-processor as well. Oppo says it can switch from the Qualcomm chip to the Apollo chip when it needs to save power. It comes with a wide range of workouts and also has an AI-based fitness regime feature. As for water resistance, the 46mm variant comes with a 5ATM water resistance rating, while the 41mm variant is rated 3ATM. It includes sleep monitoring as well.

The Oppo Watch also supports eSIM. Users can choose to link their existing number or independently use the eSIM facility on the watch with a different number. The 41mm Oppo Watch comes equipped with a 300mAh battery, while the 46mm model packs a 430mAh unit. It comes with 1GB RAM and 8GB of storage.

Oppo claims the watch can fully charge in just 75 minutes, while 15 minutes of charging will provide enough juice to last for up to 18 hours.

The 41mm variant is priced at CNY 1,499 (Rs 15,000 approx) and comes in three color options of black, gold, and silver. The 46mm variant’s aluminum model is available in black and gold colors with fluoro rubber straps and carries a price tag of CNY 1,999 (Rs 20,000 approx).
