OPPO Watch X: Five Reasons Why We Love It!

OPPO recently made headlines with the launch of its next-generation Reno 11 Pro 5G (Review) which has proven to be an amazingly well-balanced smartphone that offered us the best ”Reno” experience till date. But other than the Reno 11 Pro 5G, the company also has another exciting device in store – the new OPPO Watch X smartwatch which I’d been using extensively over the past two weeks.

Just like the first generation OPPO Watch, the new OPPO Watch X is a reasonably priced smartwatch that offers plenty of premium features which not only make you day-to-day life easier, but also ensures you’re always in the best of health thanks to its robust suite of health and fitness tracking features under the hood.

Hence if you’re in the market for a new smartwatch, here are five good reasons why you should consider getting the new OPPO Watch X as your next wrist companion.

1) The Best-looking Smartwatch Around

There may be plenty of smartwatch options in the market, but the new OPPO Watch X is certainly one of the few smartwatches that really stands out from the crowd in terms of design. This is especially true for the Mars Brown model that I had for review which features a silver-toned stainless steel case that was meticulously polished in 178 steps, with satin-brushed and mirror-polished finishes to create a delightful interplay of light and shadow.

The side buttons, consisting of a rotating crown as well as an oblong button, were also well-designed with ergonomic in mind to ensure convenient operation and avoids mis-touching, whether in daily use or during sports. On top of that, OPPO’s exemplary craftmanship also made it possible for the buttons to be seamlessly integrated into the middle frame, allowing the watch to attain a minimalist and yet classy outlook that looks stunning from all angles.

The Mars Brown model comes with a brown-colored watch strap made of high-quality flurorubber material that felt smooth and comfortable on the skin even after wearing it for an entire day. More importantly, the understated elegance of the brown fluororubber watch strap also matches the silver-toned watch case perfectly.

2) Excellent Smartwatch Display

The OPPO Watch X features a large 1.43” AMOLED display that looks crisp and vibrant from arm’s length. On top of that, it also has an impressive peak brightness that goes up to 1,000 nits in high brightness mode (HPM) to keep the screen remains visible even under bright daylight. Hence, this is an important feature for those who frequently engage in outdoor activities or adventures.

However, what really sets the OPPO Watch X apart from other smartwatches in this price range is the adoption of a 2.5D sapphire crystal cover that promises exceptional toughness and scratch resistance for the screen. Speaking of this, the new Watch X is also one of the few smartwatches that passes the MIL-STD-810H US military standard which ensures high durability even under tough conditions and environmental stresses.

3) Smart Features That Make Your Life Easier

Powered by Google’s WearOS, the OPPO Watch X supports all your favorite Google apps such as Google Assistance which not only gives you the ability to send quick messages with ease, but also allows you to get help from Google right on your wrist. This goes from getting answers to things like the latest whether and traffic updates to managing tasks and controlling your connected devices.

Apart from that, OPPO Watch X is also able to guide you effortlessly to your destination by tapping on the power of Google Map which allows you to enjoy turn-by-turn directions regardless whether you are driving, walking or cycling. Most important of all, the OPPO Watch X also supports Google Wallet which allows quick and hassle-free contactless payments at the convenience of your wrist.

4) All The Features You Need To Stay Healthy

Just like any other high-end smartwatches, the OPPO Watch X also comes with a great selection of health trackers and workout modes to help you achieve your fitness goals. For health monitoring, the OPPO Watch X is loaded with all the commonly used features such as 24hr heart rate monitoring, around-the-clock SpO2 measurement, stress levels monitoring, daily calories burnt, as well as steps tracking.

What really caught my attention is the new Multidimensional Sleep Monitoring feature which not only allows you to track the duration of your light and deep sleep, but also evaluates the potential risk of breathing problems during sleep by analyzing vital information such as continuous blood oxygen, sleep respiratory rate, heart rate variability and snoring during your sleep. Based on the respective risk level, the watch will then provide recommendation on ways to reduce or eliminate the risk. Furthermore, the data obtained from the watch can be easily synced over to OPPO’s OHealth app on your smartphone if you want to get a more holistic view of your overall wellness.

As far as fitness and workout are concerned, OPPO Watch X also supports over 100 different workout modes ranging from the more basic bunch like running and cycling to other advanced features including OPPO’s exclusive Badminton Mode which allows user to accurately monitor their swing movement, swing speed, longest rally and other professional badminton data in real-time (refer to handout above).

5) Amazing Battery Life With Ultra-fast Charging Speed

Just like its smartphones, OPPO’s smartwatches such as the new Watch X also offers amazing battery life. Depending on your usage pattern, the OPPO Watch X’s 500mAh battery is able to last from around 4 days with Smart Mode on, to as much as 12 days under power saver mode.

In the event that the battery runs out, the OPPO watch x can also be quickly recharged thanks to its ultra-fast VOOC Flash Charging support that’s capable of delivering a full charge from 0 to 100% in just an hour time. And in case you doesn’t have that much time to spare, you’ll be glad to know that a mere 10 minutes charge is sufficient to keep its lights on for a day.

Pricing & Availability

For those who’re interested, the OPPO Watch X is priced starting from S$499 in Singapore. It will be available for purchase through OPPO Official Online Store, OPPO Concept Stores, OPPO Shopee, Lazada, Qoo10, and TikTok Online Flagship Stores, iShopChangi Online Store, as well as at Authorised Channel Partners.
