Oppo Watch Free: Affordable smartwatch announced for European and UK markets
Oppo has brought the Watch Free to Europe, a smartwatch it introduced last September in China. The Watch Free launches outside China alongside the Find X5 series, which includes the Find X5 Pro. To recap, the Watch Free weighs 33 g and has a 1.64-inch AMOLED display. According to Oppo, the smartwatch should last up to 14 days between charges, although manufacturer's battery life estimates are always rather generous.
Additionally, the Watch Free has an optical heart rate sensor that supports 24-hour monitoring. Also, Oppo has included a SpO2 sensor for blood oxygen monitoring, along with more than 100 sports modes and 40 watch faces. Predictably, the Watch Free features sleep tracking, among other health features.
Currently, Oppo has released the Watch Free outside China with black and cream watch bands. As the photo below shows, the former also has a black body, while the latter has a gold finish instead. The Oppo Watch Free will retail for €99 in the Eurozone and £89 in the UK. Oppo will begin selling the smartwatch on March 24, but it is unclear if it plans to sell the Watch Free in other markets like the US.
