A few months ago, Oppo launched its first smartwatch. And now, it has launched a fitness band. The new Oppo Band is available in three different variations – Oppo Band, Oppo Band Fashion, and Oppo Band EVA. Let’s check out the Oppo Band in more detail, including the specs, features, expected price, and availability in Nepal.
Oppo Band Overview
Design and Display
From a distance, the Oppo Band looks similar to the Xiaomi Mi Band 4. It has a 1.1-inch rectangular display. Oppo has used an AMOLED panel that has a resolution of 126 x 294. The 2.5D screen covers 100% of the DCI P3 color gamut, which is crazy good for a budget fitness tracker.
The difference between the three variations is in the design of their straps. The base variant comes with a TPU strap while the Oppo Fashion Band has a floating design with a strap made up of metal and TPU. Oppo Band EVA is a special edition Fashion Band with Neon Genesis Evangelion-inspired theme. Oppo had also recently announced a limited-edition Ace2 x EVA and Watch x EVA with Neon Genesis Evangelion theme.
It is powered by the same Apollo chip 3 that the brand used in the Oppo Watch. You can connect it to your device via Bluetooth 5.0. It is compatible with devices that run Android 6.0 or above. It can also be connected to Apple devices with iOS 10.0 or above.
The Oppo Band supports 12 different tracking modes. It also features a heart rate monitor, and a SpO2 sensor to determine the oxygen saturation level in the blood.
You can use the Oppo Band for viewing app notification, alerts, music control, and weather update. It also has a find my phone feature that can be used to locate your device if you misplace it. The Fashion Band edition also supports NFC payment.
