It seems lately the most powerful brands in the Chinese Smartphones sector have been launched on the Smartbands market, this time OPPO has just presented its first Smartband called OPPO Band. A new Smartband that stands out for its AMOLED panel with which we will have a better display of the screen in outdoors, something basic for a bracelet of this type. It also includes monitoring of 12 sports and among its sensors, also one for blood oxygen level.
The OPPO Band also has an NFC version available, although at the moment we do not know if it can be used for mobile payments outside of China. This version with NFC also has a very different design, since the body is exposed and surrounded by a metal ring.
The OPPO Band includes a 1.1-inch touch AMOLED color screen and a body that has a water resistance of 5 ATM, so we can use it in swimming pools and the sea without problems. It includes Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and optionally NFC, although we remember that we do not know even if this will be operational outside of China.
It includes heart rate sensors, blood oxygen and various alarms and functions such as sleep analysis. The battery is 100 mAh and can last up to 14 days according to advertising and its weight remains at 10.3 grams
