Oppo’s Apple Watch Clone Features With Snapdragon W5 Gen 1.

Snapdragon W5 Gen 1

Oppo has launched Apple Watch Clone two smartwatches with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 chip, the first to do so since the device’s launch last month.
New Oppo Watch models build on last year’s Watch 2. Both aren’t direct successors to the preceding model. Oppo has split the difference by lowering the specs on the Oppo Watch 3 to create place for the Oppo Watch 3 Pro.

It’s Snapdragon W5 Gen 1.

Oppo chose Qualcomm’s W5 chip over the W5+. Qualcomm designed this chip for “segment-specific wearables” rather than “mainstream smartwatches,” but Oppo undoubtedly believes it good enough for its market. Qualcomm considers China, kids, seniors, health-focused gadgets, and enterprise solutions “segment-specific.”
The new chip replaces the Snapdragon Wear 4100 in last year’s Oppo Watch 2, although it’s interesting that Oppo didn’t employ the more powerful W5+ chip. Qualcomm promises 50% greater power efficiency and double the Wear 4100 chip’s performance over last year’s model.

Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 delivers enhanced health and fitness experiences owing to always-on sensors. Oppo has its own co-processor for lower-power duties, so it’s unclear how this will work on the Watch 3, but the company claims speedier app launches and vascular elasticity assessments in under 30 seconds.

Twisted design

The Oppo Watch 3 has a familiar design. Oppo has been mimicking Apple’s wearables since 2015, and this latest version is no exception.

Therefore, Oppo looks more risk-taking than Apple. Oppo Watch 3 Pro is the first wearable featuring a 3D AMOLED LTPO display with a flexible curved face.

Oppo calls this the “third form of smartwatches,” and it offers a glimpse of what a curved Apple Watch might look like. Even Oppo’s ads mimic Apple’s.
Oppo added a digital crown-like function with haptic feedback to the Oppo Watch 3 Pro. Unlike the Apple Watch, the crown is centred on the side. Non-Pro model lacks dial and one of two buttons.

The Oppo Watch 3 Pro has the same 1.91-inch display as its predecessor but a larger aspect ratio (378 x 496) Oppo Watch 3 has a 1.75-inch AMOLED screen.

Longevity, storage, and more

The smaller model’s 400mAh battery is down from 510mAh last year. Thanks to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon W5 and Oppo’s Apollo 4 Plus co-processor, it still lasts four days with moderate use. The Oppo Watch 3 Pro has a 550mAh battery that can last five days.

Oppo’s in-house chip handles common duties like timekeeping to allow the power-hungry Snapdragon W5 sleep when not needed. In low-power mode, the Oppo Watch 3 can last 10 days and the Oppo Watch 3 Pro 15 days.
Both variants get a 32GB storage bump along with the latest Snapdragon W5 CPU and screen. 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth 5.0, eSIM, NFC, 5 ATM water resistance, and GPS remain same.

Oppo Watch 3 variants provide 100 fitness modes, 150 watch faces, and various sensors, including an optical heart rate monitor, blood oxygen sensor, and ECG sensor.

Only China now

The Oppo Watch 3 and Oppo Watch 3 Pro are exclusively available in China and will go on sale August 19 for $220 and $280, respectively. The Oppo Watch 3 comes in Feather Gold and the Pro in Desert Brown.

International release is unknown. Today’s versions employ a China-specific OS. Oppo adopted Wear OS for overseas launches of the Oppo Watch 2 last year, so likely the same will happen with Oppo Watch 3 variants.
