The new Oppo Watch can match its watch face to your outfit. No, Sarasli.

It might take a little effort to get it in the United States, but Oppo’s new smartwatch is one to keep your eye on.

On Friday, the company announced that its new Oppo Watch, which is powered by Google’s WearOS platform (and looks a whole heckuva lot like the Apple Watch), will be available in “select markets” immediately. However, apart from India, the company hasn’t specified which other regions will see the Watch just yet. Like many smartwatches, it’s packed with fitness and lifestyle features along with some new display enhancements.

Unfortunately, Oppo hasn’t confirmed a US launch or exact pricing. That said, wearable enthusiasts will definitely find something to like about the Oppo Watch, which is available in two 46mm models and one 41mm model.

The 46mm model has a flexible, 3D AMOLED screen, while the 41mm version has a “rigid” AMOLED display. According to Oppo, the large display doesn’t actually bend or move, but uses flexible OLED technology. You can get the 46mm version with or without eSIM LTE capabilities, which means if you choose the eSIM version, you’ll be able to leave your house without your phone and still receive calls. The smaller model, on the other hand, is WiFi only.

The WearOS-powered smartwatch has many of the features we’ve come to expect from modern smartwatches, such as heart rate monitoring and sleep tracking. There are also multiple workout modes for things like running, cycling and swimming – all of which are compatible with the free Google Fit app. But the most exciting new feature of Oppo’s Watch is the ability to customize your watch face to suit your outfit.

no seriously. Oppo claims that the HeyTap Health mobile app (available on Android now and coming to iOS in August) can take a picture of your outfit and use AI to match your watch face to it. So if you’re really feeling your look, go ahead and let the Oppo Watch emulate it.

Last but obviously not least, Oppo Watch owners can expect around two weeks’ worth of battery life on the 41mm model and three weeks’ worth on the 46mm model if they use Power Saver mode. Otherwise, the high-performance “Smart Mode” will net you about 24 hours on the smaller watch and between 30 and 36 hours on the larger watch, depending on whether you have the eSIM model. The eSIM model is rated to have slightly less battery life than the WiFi model.

We know you’ve got plenty of fly outfits to show off on your watch face, but once again, US launch details haven’t been confirmed yet. Pricing for the Indian market will be revealed at a launch event on Friday, so we should have a better idea of ​​US cost based on that. However, serious Oppo-heads can just import the watch as Oppo has made English versions that will work here. But… it might be best to wait a bit for the official launch.
