Following previous leaks, the Chinese company has just unveiled the second generation of its OPPO Watch 2 smartwatch, which comes equipped with the already advanced Snapdragon Wear 4100 processor for wearables, thus improving its basic capabilities, adding new features, and greatly improving its autonomy.
Presented under three dial sizes that will vary between 42, 44 and 46 millimeters in diameter, with up to six different finish options and colors, the OPPO Watch 2 stays within the same aesthetics of its predecessor, with a square color touchscreen format, and two flat buttons on its side, thus avoiding the use of the characteristic control wheel of the Apple Watch.
The smartwatch has the basic tracking elements of its kind when it comes to health and fitness, such as heart rate tracking, Sp02 monitoring, and even snoring risk assessment. It has plenty of AI-powered features, such as intelligently changing its color theme based on what you’re wearing or whatever photo you tell it to base its theme on, as well as other visual effects available to further customize your wearing experience.
While at the moment the China-released version of the OPPO Watch 2 runs on the ColorOS version for smartwatches based on an older version of Android 8.1, the rest of the available models globally are expected to run a version of Wear OS just like we saw with the original OPPO Watch.
Finally, it highlights the incorporation of a VOOC 2.0 fast charging system, which promises a duration of a full day with just 10 minutes of charging. Something that will undoubtedly allow us to get the most out of it, with a promised autonomy of up to 4 days of use under smart mode, or up to 16 days in power saving mode.
Availability and price
Released for the moment exclusively for the Asian market, the basic variant with bluetooth 42 millimeters sets a base launch price of 1,299 yuan (approximately 170 euros), with a second version of 44 and 46 millimeters with eSIM compatibility that will rise to 1,999 yuan (approximately 260 euros).
Unfortunately, there are still no details on when we will be able to see these smartwatches in our country, although it is expected that we will have new details before the end of the summer.
