So far in 2022, the smartwatch market has grown tremendously, with more and more sales, and while the Apple Watch is defending its title of most popular smartwatch to date in 2022, other companies have also tried to meet the demand for wearables. And now we have some details on the upcoming Oppo Watch 3, coming from a reputable tipster on Weibo Digital Chat Station (via GSMArena

Oppo Watch 3 aims for longer battery life and high screen-to-body ratio

According to Digital Chat Station, the Oppo Watch 3 series will consist of three models with model numbers OWW211/212/213. The information the leaker shared Chinese social media website Weibo also point to better battery life (though no details are disclosed as to how better) and a high screen-to-body ratio, perhaps looking for some bezels from its predecessor. The colors that the smartwatch comes in are black, silver, dark gray and light gold.

Its predecessor, the Oppo Watch 2, launched last year with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 4100 chipset and a 1.91-inch square screen with rounded corners (yes, it really does look like an Apple Watch, we know that), and Digital Chat Station aren’t saying anything about a major design change, so expect the wearable to take the same shape as well.

As for the release date, it looks like we’re looking at a second half of 2022 release for the Oppo Watch 3. Digital Chat Station’s post reads: “The second half of the year will focus on new flagships, new equipment and new systems”, which, although the machine translation cuts the grammar a bit, could mean we’ll see the wearables. The post also mentions Oppo Band 2, which will reportedly come in black and blue models, with NFC and blood oxygen monitoring.

The tipster also indicates that all functions of the Oppo Watch 2 will find their way to the new model. Pretty much, we expect 24-hour heart rate, blood oxygen, and stress monitoring, in addition to sleep analytics.

And the improvement in battery life indicated by the tipster can make this smartwatch quite durable in terms of battery. Its predecessor shook up Ultra Dynamic Dual Engine, which guarantees battery life of up to 4 days on a single charge and up to a whopping 16 days in Power Saver mode.

Yes, it may look like an Apple Watch, but it definitely doesn’t crave being charged like that every day. It remains to be seen whether it will be available in the United States, and great battery life or not, it could still be a challenge for Oppo to reach Apple Watch and Galaxy Watch in terms of popularity and market share.
