OPPO is taking on the smartband market thanks to the introduction of the OPPO Band, OPPO Band Fashion, and OPPO Band EVA. The cheapest of the three, the OPPO Band, is priced at 199 yuan (US$28) and was launched today. The OPPO Band series will be taking on competitors like the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 and the Redmi Band.

OPPO has officially announced the OPPO Band, OPPO Band Fashion, and OPPO Band EVA. The OPPO Band, which is already available for purchase, costs 199 yuan (US$28). The OPPO Band Fashion, which is scheduled for sales release on July 9, has a price tag of 249 yuan (US$35), while the OPPO Band EVA that will also be released in July is priced at 299 yuan (US$42). The OPPO Band series is entering a competitive marketplace that features strong rivals such as the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 and the Redmi Band.

OPPO has fitted its smartbands with 1.1-inch AMOLED screens (126x294) capable of covering 100% of the DCI-P3 color space. Unsurprisingly, the smartbands are brimming with features such as an SpO2 sensor, 12 sport modes, 5 ATM water resistance, heart-rate monitor, and alarms. The user can choose from 160 watch faces, and the battery life (100-mAh cell) is supposed to last 14 days on a single charge. Charging to full takes 1.5 hours via the use of a pogo pin charger (not USB).

The more-expensive OPPO Band Fashion can take on the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 in the domestic Chinese market by also offering NFC functionality. Along with coming with or without NFC, the main differences between the three OPPO bands are based on design and color: For instance, the OPPO Band EVA is a variant of the OPPO Band Fashion that should appeal to fans of the anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. It’s not yet known what specifications and prices the global variants of the OPPO Band series will have or when they might be released.

My interest in technology began after I was presented with an Atari 800XL home computer in the mid-1980s. I especially enjoy writing about technological advances, compelling rumors, and intriguing tech-related leaks. I have a degree in International Relations and Strategic Studies and count my family, reading, writing, and travel as the main passions of my life. I have been with Notebookcheck since 2012.
