Oppo watch just launched and it looks a lot like apple watch

We knew that Oppo was working on a wearable with more than a passing resemblance to the Apple Watch, but now the Oppo Watch has been announced in its entirety, complete with a large and sharp OLED screen.

The display on the largest model is 46mm 1.91 inches and has 473 X 402 resolution and 326 ppi. In comparison, the largest Apple Watch 5 model has a 1.78-inch screen with a resolution of 448 x 368. While there are smaller Oppo 41mm watch models with a 1,6-inch, 360 x 320 screen.

Still, the top of the Oppo Watch is larger and has a higher resolution than the Apple Watch 5 while retaining a similar design, complete with a square-ish curved glass screen, and 11.35mm thick aluminum or stainless steel frame become.

It's also water resistant to 50 meters, has a heart rate monitor, and supports mobile connectivity with Yesim.

The battery is 430mAh in the 46mm model and 300mAh in the 41mm one, and apparently last 40 hours of regular use, and that seems to be a fairly common amount, but switching to power saving mode and Oppo claims it will last up to 21 days. This mode will display notifications but turn off many of the smart features.

And charging the Oppo watch should be fast, with the company saying it can go from zero to 100% in 75 minutes, or from zero to 46% (seemingly enough for life) in just 15 minutes.

The software can be a stumbling block for some users as it doesn't wear out the OS or any of the other major smartwatch platforms. Rather, it runs Oppo's own ColorOS and watch software. It's based on Android-like hardware though - it looks a bit like what you'll find on an Apple watch.

We don't know all the features of the software yet, but it can do general things like control music playback and track exercise and sleep.

Oddly enough, the Oppo watch is powered by a Snapdragon 2500 wear frequency chipset, which is not one of the most powerful watch chipsets, but then perhaps more power is not needed with OS documents. There is also 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage in all models.

The big remaining question is if and when you can buy a better watch, and how much. Today's launch was for China only, where it starts at CNY 1,499 (around $215 / £165 / AU$325), but don't expect an exact conversion when it launches elsewhere.

Oppo has told us that its watch will be coming to Europe at a later date, so those in the UK are at least likely to be able to buy it without importing it, but we're not sure when. We will update you as soon as we know more.
