Oppo Italia has announced the availability in Italy of its new wearable Oppo Watch Free with monitoring function of health status, sports performance, and sleep with the new function called ‘OSleep’. Oppo Italia had anticipated the launch of its new wearable device on Twitter last February 4th. Oppo Watch Free is available in Vanilla and Black colors at the recommended retail price of € 99.99 in the best consumer electronics stores, online, on Amazon and on the Oppo Store.
Meanwhile, Oppo has begun announcing availability outside of China for its Oppo Reno7 series of smartphones, albeit only in India for now. Recall that Oppo has unveiled smartphones in China Reno7 SE 5G, Reno7 5G and Reno7 Pro 5G last November, with the Reno7 Pro and Reno7 becoming official in India on February 4th. There is still no debut date in Italy.
Oppo Watch Free comes with a AMOLED display 16.7 million colors, of shape rectangular with diagonal from 1.64 inch and resolution 280×456 pixel, with the dial customizable through over 40 available watchfaces. Protecting the display is 2.5D curved glass.
The dimensions of the wearable measure 46×29.7×10.6mm (with a raised section of 11.4mm to measure the heartbeat) while the weight is 20.9 grams (without strap) and 32.6 grams (whole watch). The case has no physical buttons. The silicone strap supplied with a variable length from 130 to 205mm and a width of 19mm, suitable for wrists with a circumference between 130 and 205mm.
The autonomy of the battery from 230mAh integrated into the watch is estimated at up to 14 days and the recharge is of the magnetic type (it needs a minimum power of 5V and 500mA). 5 minutes of charging is enough for 24 hours of use.
The available sensors are: six-axis accelerometer and gyroscope, heart rate optical, blood oxygen optical (spO2) and ambient light. For health management, Oppo Watch Free offers the constant monitoring of the level of oxygen in the blood and snoringanalysis of sleep disorders, heart rate 24 hours a day (with detected irregularities signaled by a vibration), daily activity and reminder to combat sedentary lifestyle (suggest standing up: useful for those who spend their days in the office or at the computer).
Oppo Watch Free supports over 100 training modesrunning programs (including jogging, fat-burning running, endurance running and interval running) designed to help you achieve your fitness goals in an effective and fun way, automatic detection for 4 types of training (running, walking, rowing and elliptical machine) and offers a five-minute standing relaxation exercise.
Oppo Watch Free can be associated with devices with an operating system Android (version 6.0 or later) or Apple iOS (version 10.0 or later). Connectivity includes support for bluetooth 5.0 BLE, while NFC is absent (so this smartwatch cannot be used for mobile payments). Depending on the connected device, Oppo Watch Free can show notifications of messages, incoming calls on the screen and give the possibility to reject them. ‘Find My Phone’ and music playback control are also available.
The feature on which Oppo focuses a lot in the promotion of this smartwatch is OSleep, a “professional, comprehensive and personalized” system for monitoring and analyzing sleep in every phase. Here’s how it works: before going to sleep the clock shows reminders for the right time to go to bed without being late; during sleep, the watch monitors sleep, measures blood oxygen in real time and monitors heart rate variability; upon awakening, you receive a personalized sleep report.
OSleep also includes the assessment of the risk of snoring, powered by the combination of data on the amount of oxygen in the blood and heart rate with the analysis of the sounds emitted during sleep and recorded by the microphones of the smartphone placed on a surface near the head, such as a bedside table. This is not an absolute novelty, Samsung has introduced something similar (Sleep Scores) last year on the series Galaxy Watch4.
The snoring risk assessment may seem like an ineffective thing, but it really isn’t. Not infrequently, snoring is perceived as a sign of a healthy, deep and restful sleep: in fact, if chronic it could be a symptom of SAS (Sleep Apnea Syndrome) – a phenomenon not to be underestimated. Oppo Watch Free therefore helps to promptly detect breathing problems during sleep thanks to the joint action of sensors and algorithms. Furthermore, Oppo and Tsinghua University have established the Joint Research Center for Future Terminal Technology, giving rise to joint research projects in the field of sleep to further study the sleep monitoring technology, convinced that well-being starts first of all from quality. of rest.
