Oppo has launched its Oppo Watch smartwatch officially.

Other features common to both phones include an in-display fingerprint sensor, stereo speakers, NFC, and 18 watt fast charging with a USB-C cable.

It's like Oppo didn't even try to come up with something unique. The OPPO Watch can share a phone number with a smartphone or have its own number, either of which can be used for voice calls and Internet access through its eSIM feature.

We've been waiting for Oppo to announce its Oppo Watch and now it's here.

As you perhaps expect, the OPPO Watch uses the Android-based WearOS skinned with the firm's proprietary ColorOS. Everything else about the Oppo Watch design seems familiar.

I mean, just look at the damn thing. And there are two screen sizes to choose from. That's a 1.91-inch display with 72.76% screen-to-body ratio and 402 x 475 resolution. The watch comes with a built-in heart rate sensor like the Apple Watch.

The Oppo Watch will go on sale in China on March 24, although worldwide availability isn't confirmed at this point in time, and for some freakish reason it didn't appear at the launch event for Oppo's Find X2 smartphone as was thought to be the plan. Plus, there is a music playback feature as well.

OPPO Watch provides a health monitoring system and various fitness tracking functions through which OPPO hopes to make exercise easier for its users.

Liliputing's primary sources of revenue are advertising and affiliate links (if you click the "Shop" button at the top of the page and buy something on Amazon, for example, we'll get a small commission). On the battery front, the Oppo Find X2 comes backed by a 4200mAh battery that supports 65W Super VOOC 2.0 Flash Charge and the Find X2 Pro offers 4260mAh battery, also with 65W Super VOOC 2.0 Flash Charge technology. A full charge only takes 1 hour and 15 minutes, while just 15 minutes of charging can get up to 46% battery. No, we're not sure why a press release says "reportedly". But it's pretty impressive if it's actually true. A full charge is said to get around 40 hours of regular use but can be stretched out to 21 days with Power Saver Mode.

During its presentation last week, Oppo was eager to boast about the Find X2 Pro's new camera hardware and software that should allow it to capture breathtaking snaps. Oppo is saying the Find X2 series will serve as the ultimate flagship experience in the Android world. Whenever he's not writing about gadgets he miserably fails to stay away from them, although he desperately tries.
