OPPO is a device OEM that has launched Apple Watch-clones in the past. Now, it has unveiled its first smartwatch with a circular face instead. The RX will also run ColorOS Watch 1.5, a new version of the OEM's software for wearables.

OPPO held its Wisdom Life event today (October 19, 2020) to launch new parts of its growing device ecosystem. One example is its new Watch RX, shown off briefly during the conference. It is a wearable; however, unlike its Watch and Watch ECG editions, it has a round face.

Its debut confirms an earlier leak that indicated OPPO would indeed adopt this form-factor as an alternative to its existing square-faced smartwatches. This Watch RX does exhibit the 3D curved glass found in its predecessors, however.

Unfortunately, OPPO did not reveal much about it, besides that its new dial houses a 1.28-inch AMOLED display and it will be available in black, gold and blue colorways. It will be released for sale on November 1, 2020 in China.

Units of the Watch RX sold on this date may run the new ColoeOS 1.5 version. It has been updated with over 50 new watchfaces, 8 new sports mode and an SOS function in wearables with mobile data. In other news, OPPO has also now launched its promised League of Legends versions of the Find X2 and Watch.

They have the same specs as their "normal" counterparts (additionally, the LOL S10 Watch is not an ECG Edition), and are now stocked on the OEM's online store for 4999 (~US$748) and 1999 yuan (~US$299) respectively.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
