Oppo Watch X Touts Amazing 4-Day Battery Life, 12 Days In Power Saving Mode

This won’t be the last time a smartphone brand touts a new smartwatch, but international handset maker Oppo is learning from the past, to build for the future to include looks, smart features, battery life and more, and it has covered all the bases with its latest Oppo Watch X.

Looks-wise, the Watch X is styled in two colours, Platinum Black and Mars Brown, to echo the looks of Oppo’s flagship Find X series of smartphones. With a large and vibrant 1.43-inch AMOLED display at 326 PPI (pixel per inch) pixel density and 1,000 nits peak brightness, there’s no problem reading the display even under direct sunlight. The front is made of durable sapphire crystal glass, rounded at the edge and flows elegantly into the 46mm stainless steel case.

The watch’s body sports a unique flat right-hand side, which houses the Home and Function buttons that are perfectly angled. This makes it more natural to press, as opposed to the traditional button placements on a round edge. The Watch X is military-grade tested which can endure temperatures from -20ºC to 55ºC. It is also IP68 water and dust-resistant, as well as 5 ATM pressure-resistant.

Out of the box, the Oppo Watch X supports 100+ workout modes, including 11 professional sports modes such as running, swimming, skiing, and Oppo’s exclusive Badminton Mode. Statistics such as shot distribution (forehand or backhand), swing speed and heart rate interval are captured by the watch and instantly provide a visualised summary at the end of every game. Users will also be able to enjoy all-day tracking of stress levels, blood oxygen levels and heart rate, along with sleep tracking, snoring analysis and sleep apnea detection. Additionally, the Watch X runs Wear OS 4 by Google, so you can count on significant third-party app support via the Google Play Store, with the likes of Spotify, WhatsApp, Line, MyFitnessPal, and more.

Compared to its smartphone-linked cousins, the Oppo Watch X prides itself on its 4-Day Battery Life, even as others tend to last a mere one, or if you’re lucky, two days before it needs to be charged. Oppo claims that on their standard battery test consisting of sleep monitoring, over 100 notifications, 30 minutes of outdoor running, listening to music, and making calls via Bluetooth daily, the Watch X can run up to 4 days on a single charge. This can be further extended up to a whopping 12 days when Power Saver Mode is activated. Their secret sauce is based on Oppo’s innovative Dual-Engine Architecture, which results in a 30 to 70% reduction in power consumption compared to traditional single-chipset systems.

The Oppo Watch X is available from 2 March in Singapore for S$499. There is a launch promotion from 2 to 31 March where all purchases of the Watch X will receive a free Nylon Strap (worth S$49), S$50 instant rebate, and a 1 + 1 Extended Warranty.
