The Snapdragon Wear 4100 makes a difference in the OPPO Watch 2
The brand has evolved its range of smartwatches keeping the identity of the first model to evolve at the hardware level. On the outside it offers the usual Apple Watch look without the crown (in exchange for two side buttons), it has aluminum for the watch case and it offers two different sizes: 42 mm and 46 mm.
The OPPO Watch 2 mounts a Snapdragon Wear 4100 as the heart of silicon, an SoC that has proven to be as powerful as consumer content (at least compared to the previous generation of Qualcomm). Along with the SoC, the new smartwatch offers 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage; with a renewed layer of software: ColorOS Watch 2. We do not know if it will keep Wear OS as a base, although it will surely offer it when the OPPO Watch jumps onto the international market.
In terms of sensors, our protagonist has accelerometers and a gyroscope, offers heart rate and SpO2, and includes a lighting sensor, compass, and atmospheric pressure. The OPPO Watch 2 can record activity, sleep, and stress and measure more than 100 sports practices. And precisely, the device integrates satellite positioning.
The battery has a higher capacity compared to the predecessor model: the OPPO Watch 2 has 360 mAh . The brand includes fast charging (with 15 minutes of charging the watch should last a day), it offers an autonomy of 10 days with basic use and 2.5 days with “normal” use. In models with eSIM 4G, autonomy drops to 1.5 days, always according to OPPO figures.
