OPPO Watch Hands On Review: It's not Just OPPO Apple Watch Clone

OPPO Watch Hands On Review: It's not Just OPPO Apple Watch Clone

By  Joe Horner 2020-03-13 2808 0

At the launch of the new product earlier this month, OPPO not only unveiled the OPPO Find X2 series, but also introduced OPPO's first smartwatch: OPPO Watch. I also looked at some pictures of the product before I experienced OPPO Watch. To be honest, if you only look at the product picture, it does look a bit like Apple Watch clone, but after using OPPO Watch for a few days, I found that this watch actually has a lot of different designs, it is not just a OPPO Apple Watch clone, but the whole machine experience also exceeded my expectations. So how's the OPPO Watch doing? Let's take a look.

OPPO Watch Review: Basic Features

The one we are experiencing is the OPPO Watch 46mm version, with a 1.91in AMOLED curved screen with beautiful curvature on the left and right sides, and a screen resolution of 402x476 and 326 PPI, that reaches the level of the retina screen.



OPPO Watch 46mm obsidian version is equipped with an aluminum alloy frame and fluororubber strap, the first feeling of the whole machine is: good texture, very exquisite, curved screen side Radian is more beautiful visually, and curved glass and metal frame are over-handled very well, basically seamless fit. This kind of exquisite feeling is difficult to see in the picture, only touch the real sample will have a more real feeling.

 

But to remind everyone to note that the dial of OPPO Watch 46mm version is larger than the common Apple Watch 44mm, users with thinner wrists will look bigger to wear.


 


The great difference between OPPO Watch and Apple Watch in design is that there is no crown, two physical buttons + microphones on the right and two large crescent bay loudspeakers on the left to support independent music playback while supporting 5ATM waterproof, that is, 50 meters waterproof, can be turned on waterproof mode, it is no problem to wear it for swimming.

 

On the system side, OPPO Watch doesn't use Google Wear OS, but ColorOS Watch, which is deeply customized based on Android 8.1. The completion of the ColorOS Watch system is very high, especially the fluency and transition animation is smooth and delicate, which exceeds my expectations, and there are very few smartwatches that can achieve this fluency and smooth experience.


 


In addition, OPPO Watch built-in APP store, the current support of third-party Apps are iFlytek Input, Kuwo Music, Himalayas, QQ, QQ Music, Fit, Gudong, Alipay. You can install or uninstall these Apps independently on your OPPO watch.

 

OPPO Watch Review: Functions Experiencing

OPPO Watch uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 2500 chip + Apollo chip, of which Snapdragon 2500 is a quad-core chip built for the smartwatch, which integrates voice-activated AI smart assistant, NFC, and other functions, while Apollo 3 chip is a low-power chip. As a result, OPPO Watch can adjust both smart mode and long-range mode. The watch in smart mode has rich functions and meets daily needs. In long-range mode, the watch will change into a smart bracelet with one click, retaining the basic functions and greatly increasing the battery life of the watch.


 

 

OPPO Watch also supports eSIM and NFC functions. Mobile phone message notification is very useful in daily life. When you have too many messages on your phone, you can raise your wrist to preview the message on your OPPO Watch, so you don't have to pick up the phone to check it often. Even the emoji expressions can be displayed normally, but Wechat only supports message push and does not support reply messages. This feature may be enabled later.


 


The most powerful feature of OPPO Watch is that the whole machine has a good texture and is very exquisite. At the same time, it has a strong sense of motor vibration and a rich variety of watch face.


 

There are a variety of wallpaper options in watch face management, among which the "egg dial" is very interactive, you can click on the dynamic balloons on the dial, which is very decompressed when you play with it. AI has a high degree of freedom to wear dial and album dial, in which AI can take photos of you with your mobile phone, and the system will automatically identify and match colors to intelligently generate some watch dials that match your wear.

 

 

In addition, the photo album dial can select photos in the album as the watch dial, or choose nearly 1 week, 1 month, 3 months of recall albums as the watch face, and there are three optional locations for time display, with a high degree of freedom.

 

In sports, OPPO Watch supports GPS+ Beidou positioning and 24-hour heart rate measurement. There are 8 exercise modes: physical running, 5km easy running, 5 minutes easy fitness, reduced-fat running, outdoor walking, outdoor cycling, swimming, training assistant. In addition, OPPO Watch also has an X-sign watch dial that analyzes your exercise from four dimensions: step number, consumption, exercise duration, and a number of activities to form an "X" plan, which makes the daily activity status more visual.


 

OPPO Watch Review: Who is Suitable for OPPO Watch?

The feeling that OPPO Watch gives me is: beautiful, exquisite, smooth, the most direct favor comes from the excellent workmanship and texture of the whole machine, as well as the ColorOS Watch system that exceeds expectations. The 41mm version is priced at 1499RMB, the 46mm version is priced at 1999RMB, and the texture is definitely one of the best in Android watches at the same price.


 


If you are an OPPO mobile phone user and plan to buy a smartwatch, then this OPPO watch is your best choice, regardless of appearance, performance, experience, all aspects are excellent, especially the whole machine texture and system experience are very outstanding. Of course, the current interworking between OPPO Watch and mobile phones is through the HeyTap Health App. What’s more, OnePlus and Realme models except for the pop-up window, all the functions of the watch can be used normally.


 


In terms of charging, the OPPO Watch does not support wireless charging, but a faster contact VOOC flash charge, which can be fully charged in about 70 minutes. However, at present, OPPO Watch's NFC supports the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei all-in-one card and Shanghai bus card and does not support the addition of access cards. We look forward to adding this function in the future.


 


As a whole, the OPPO watch doesn't look like the Apple Watch as it looks in the rendering picture. And its system experience is very smooth and delicate, the real machine is exquisite workmanship, it is a smartwatch that you have a desire to use after you touch it.
