Oppo also introduced two new smartwatches today alongside the Find N3 Flip. The Oppo Watch 4 Pro offers a stylish body and pretty much all the sensors that are currently available. The Oppo Watch SE, on the other hand, primarily relies on basic functions at the lowest possible price.
Oppo Watch 4 Pro
The Oppo Watch 4 Pro has a similar design to the Watch 3 Pro. However, the case is now made of stainless steel instead of aluminum, which, in addition to durability, also slightly increases the weight from 37.5 g to 52.3 g. The bottom is made of ceramic, which is both durable and avoids skin problems. The display is still curved in a gentle arc. It is a 1.91-inch LTPO AMOLED panel with the same resolution of 378 x 396 pixels (326 ppi).
Like any high-quality smartwatch, the Oppo Watch 4 Pro also has various sensors on board. In a 60-second check, they examine seven important vital functions. The most important components are ECG, heart rate, age of blood vessels, sleep and stress. The watch can also measure the elasticity of blood vessels, detect arterial fibrillation, snoring and more. There’s also real-time blood glucose monitoring and a skin temperature sensor that’s accurate within 0.1 degrees.
Like the Oppo Watch 3 Pro, the new model is also powered by a Snapdragon W5+ chipset. There is also a BES 2700 chip for power saving. However, this year Oppo has doubled the RAM to 2GB, while storage stays at 32GB. The battery has also grown slightly at 570mAh and lasts up to 5 days with normal use and up to 2.5 days with heavy use. In addition, there is a light mode that should last for several weeks, as well as a quick charge function that recharges enough energy for a whole day in 10 minutes. A full charge takes just over an hour.
The Oppo Watch 4 Pro also has an eSIM, NFC, WLAN and Bluetooth 5.0. The most important positioning satellites are supported for training tracking and the watch case is water-resistant to 50 meters.
Oppo Watch 4 Pro prices
There are two versions of the Oppo Watch 4 Pro – Polar Night Black with a black case and a fluororubber strap, and Dawn Brown with a champagne-colored case and a brown leather strap. The smartwatch is available for pre-order in China starting today from the official Oppo store. Shipping and open sale begin September 8th. The Polar Night Black version costs 2,300 CNY (€290/$315). However, there is an early bird offer that saves 100 CNY. The Dawn Brawn model comes with two straps and is therefore slightly more expensive at 2,500 CNY (€320/$345). Again, there is a 100 CNY discount for pre-orders.
Oppo Watch SE
The Oppo Watch SE is the cheap alternative without state-of-the-art sensors or a stainless steel housing. It consists of a composite material and has a flat 1.75-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 372 x 430 pixels (326 ppi). One of the downsides is that it’s powered by an old and slow Snapdragon Wear 4100 chipset with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. The same chip powered the Oppo Watch 2 two years ago.
This watch is quite light at 31g but packs a fairly large 400mAh battery. That should be enough for 3 days (10 days in light mode). As with the Oppo Watch 4 Pro, 10 minutes of recharging provides a day of battery life. A full charge takes an hour. The Oppo Watch SE also has an eSIM and the most important positioning systems. NFC is also available, as well as WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0.
While it lacks the more advanced sensors, the Oppo Watch SE can also track 24/7 heart rate and irregular heart rhythms. Just like the quality of sleep by measuring the blood oxygen level. The SE is also waterproof up to 50 meters.
The Oppo Watch SE is available now at the Oppo Shop in China, priced at 1,000 CNY (€125/$140). That goes for the gray and purple models, which come with silicone straps. The dark brown model with a leather strap costs 1,100 CNY.
