The OPPO Watch 2 has been introduced as its latest flagship smartwatch.
With the OPPO Watch 2, we have an identical square design that the first model had. It highlights a packed 1.75-inch (42mm model) AMOLED screen with a smooth 60Hz refresh rate and 326ppi. The two physical buttons are still on the right side.
Under the hood, it’s powered by a Qualcomm Wear 4100 chipset with a custom Apollo 4s co-processor. There’s also the Ultra Dynamic Dual Engine that makes the 4-day battery life possible — quite an interesting feat for a full-featured watch.
That battery life can be extended by up to 16 days under Power Saver Mode. Charging is done via the VOOC 2.0 adapter that promises a full day of use with only a 10-minute charge.
Like a lot of high-end smartwatches, the OPPO Watch 2 will have an optional eSIM feature for both the 42mm and 46mm variants.
Health and activity tracking features are also here. There are the appropriate sensors for 24-hour heart rate and SpO2 tracking, sleep analysis, steps counter, workout tracking, 100 sports mode, and more. Outdoor runs can be tracked by the built-in GPS while the 5ATM water resistance ensures that it’s safe to go swimming with it.
Since it’s initially coming to China, it will run on the brand’s Android 8.1-based ColorOS. The international version, if ever there’s one, shall come with Google Wear out of the box.
The OPPO Watch 2 Bluetooth-only 42mm has a price of CNY1,299 (around Php10,000), eSIM model for CNY1,499 (around Php11,600), while the 46mm eSIM is at CNY1,999 (around Php15,500). It will be available in China this August 6, while release details in other markets are yet to be revealed.
