Last year, Oppo entered the smartwatch market with the Oppo Watch. Today, the company has launched its successor in the form of Oppo Watch 2. Here, we will be discussing the key specifications, features, expected price in Nepal, and availability of Oppo Watch 2.
Oppo Watch 2 Overview
Design and Display
Coming from the company’s first smartwatch, Oppo hasn’t made many changes to the design. Oppo Watch 2, like its predecessor, features a square display with curved edges. You can choose between two sizes – 42 mm and 46 mm.
Here, the 46 mm case option hosts a larger 1.91″ AMOLED panel whereas the 42 mm option brings a 1.75″ screen instead. Despite this, both displays cover 100% of DCI-P3 color space and a 326 PPI. Also, like the last-gen Oppo Watch (46 mm), these displays retain 3 D curvature on the sides.
You can customize the watch with a wide range of watch faces. Oppo lets you create a watch face of your own as well. The watch also inherits the AI Wear dial feature that lets users make new watch faces using pictures taken from a smartphone.
Moving on, the silicone strap of the first-gen Oppo Watch now has a buckle design. There is a calfskin version if you are interested.
Inside, Oppo Watch 2 runs on Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon Wear 4100, which is a healthy upgrade from the Wear 3100 on its predecessor. Here, this chip features four Cortex-A 53 CPU cores and is fabricated under the newer 7 nm process node.
According to Qualcomm, Wear 4100 uses 25% less power and boasts 2.5 times greater graphics prowess. Oppo has paired it with Ambiq’s Apollo 4 s co-processor. The watch will use Wear 4100 in Smart Mode, whereas it will switch to Apollo 4 s under Battery Saving Mode.
The latter also limits the smart capability of the watch. However, users can still use the health/workout monitoring and notification feature. The switch is automatic when in full smart mode, thanks to Oppo’s UDDE (Ultra Dynamic Dual Engine) technology.

Health and Fitness Tracking
Moving on, its 24-hour heart rate monitoring can detect irregular beats. Similarly, the sleep-tracking feature can detect breathing problems too. You can even use it together with a blood glucose meter, weight scale, and blood pressure monitor.
Oppo Watch 2 supports over 100 different sports modes. It even supports the automatic detection of at least six of them. As a safety precaution, Oppo has added fall detection and a one-key SOS emergency call to the watch.
This smartwatch has e SIM support in China, but it is to be seen if the company retains the feature when it eventually launches globally. Oppo has included a stress detection feature on the watch as well, and the new Relax app to go with it.
It also has a built-in GPS (triple positioning system) to accurately track your training route and movement. Oppo Watch 2 can double as a viewfinder and trigger for your smartphone’s camera app too.
Moving on, it ships with ColorOS Watch 2.0, which the company has optimized to run over 50 different popular apps, including Baidu Maps, We Chat, and Net Ease Cloud Music. But we expect its global variant to run on Google’s Wear OS—or the new Wear platform co-developed by Google and Samsung.
Additionally, it features an E-Game mode. When turned on, it will redirect all your phone’s notifications to the watch. In addition, Watch 2 can record your heart rate and calories consumed during the period.
Battery and Charging
In terms of battery, the larger 46 mm variant features a 510 mAh battery that the company claims can last up to 4 days in Smart Mode. It can be stretched to 16 days using Power Saver mode. On the other hand, the 42 mm variant packs a smaller 360 mAh cell that can last for 2.5 days and 10 days, respectively.
Similarly, Oppo claims that 10 minutes of charging using VOOC 2.0 technology can provide one day of battery on the 46 mm variant. This number climbs to 15 minutes for the smaller 42 mm case.
