If the Wear OS-powered device is going to be anything like the earlier version, then it’ll likely have an AMOLED screen, eSIM for LTE and cellular calls, heart rate monitoring and water resistance up to 3ATM (or 5ATM on a larger model). The first Oppo Watch starts at 1,499 yuan (about $220) in China for the smaller, 41mm version, while the bigger 46mm option starts at 2,999 yuan (about $260). While that’s not as low as Mobvoi’s entry-level smartwatches, this price range is certainly on the lower end for the spectrum for a Wear OS watch. We won’t know the full specs, price and availability details till July 31st, but for now those who have been thinking about buying a Wear OS smartwatch might want to wait and see if this could be worth considering.
