Oppo has finally listed the curtains off its new smartwatch called “Oppo Watch”. Oppo has given us its best look yet at its upcoming smartwatch on the way — and it looks almost exactly like an Apple Watch.
The announcement came on social media with Oppo unveiling the look of the wearable device along with the date and time of its public launch. The watch will be launching alongside the Oppo Find X2 smartwatch on March 6, 10.30 am CET (3 PM IST).
There’s still a lot we don’t know about the device, including price or many of its features, but there are a few things we can speculate about from this one image. It looks like you can use the watch to make and receive calls. And if you look at the watch on the right, it looks like there’s an option to send a message to the caller if you aren’t able to take their call. The watch could come in two colour variants – Black and Gold. The company has, however, not yet revealed all the specifics of the Oppo Watch. The post also states “Oppo Watch Series” so it is being assumed that it might come in two sizes for men and women.
Interestingly, from the looks of it, the smartwatch appears strikingly similar to that of the latest Apple Watch Series 5 wearables. It has similar curved glass as the Watch Series 5, similar-looking bezels on all the four sides. One of the watches in the image also shows the option to send messages.
Shen also reportedly shared another image of the watch on Weibo on January 30th. It gives a better look at that second top button and reveals a microphone and an interesting green line on the bottom button. In the tweet, he did reveal the Oppo Watch to feature 3D Glass, which is supposed to be a ‘game-changer’ in the market.
According to Google Translate, this Weibo post says the Oppo Watch is an “Android system,” so perhaps it runs Google’s wearOS. We will anyway get a clearer look at the device when it launches on March 6, so we won’t have to wait long to learn more about the Oppo Watch.
