With the success of the Oppo Find X and the Find X S, the Chinese phone maker is again in the limelight, this time with the Oppo Watch, which is its first smartwatch and it comes with a spec sheet to match. The Watch will be available in two sizes(42mm and 46mm) and in two variants, one with a display of 1.39-inch (~68.5% screen-to-body ratio) and a display of 1.78-inch (~73.4% screen-to-body ratio), while the other will feature a 1.4-inch (~66% screen-to-body ratio) display.
The Oppo Watch is an upcoming Android smartwatch that will be available later this year.

The OS is Android 5.1 and will be compatible with 4G LTE networks. The Watch will have a 1,680 mAh battery which can power the watch for up to 3 days.
Earlier this year, Oppo was rumored to be working on a watch that would rival the Apple Watch. The rumors were unfounded, but a new rumor from China claims that the brand is indeed planning to release a smartwatch that looks like the Apple Watch. The Oppo Watch is expected to be released later this year, and will come in two different variants.
Oppo will launch its first true smartwatch or premium smartwatch in March 2020. The Oppo Watch runs on Google’s Wear OS, and it’s much more advanced than other Wear OS smartwatches. The company is about to launch its second smartwatch, which will be classified as a sports watch. How did we know? Oppo recently registered the Oppo Watch Free trademark with the European Intellectual Property Office. Thanks to the website LetGoDigital, we know about the upcoming smartwatch. The website page talks about sports watches, so we can be sure it’s a sports watch.
The new watch could be released with the Wear OS platform, but it could be smaller than the current models. The Oppo Watch is available in 41mm and 46mm sizes. This month, Samsung and Google partnered on the future of their mobile devices. Samsung will be abandoning its own Tizen OS for Wear OS. All of Samsung’s upcoming smartwatches will run on Google’s Wear OS. This solution from Samsung might be tough competition for Oppo and its new watch.
Google is also taking the Wear OS platform seriously, and a new major firmware update is proof of that. During the Google I/O event, the company hinted at some major changes to the watch. The recent update to the Google keyboard is the first sign of that. Another Chinese company, Meizu, is preparing to launch the Meizu Watch with Wear OS and Snapdragon Wear 4100 SoC on the 31st. The month of May will be presented. The new Oppo Watch Free gives users another choice on the Wear OS platform. About the website
