Oppo Watch X released outside China with stainless steel design

Oppo has brought its OnePlus Watch 2 alternative to market following the latter's recent release. Starting in select markets, the Oppo Watch X marks a return to Wear OS for Oppo after a prolonged absence.

Oppo has now started selling the Watch X, the company's take on the OnePlus Watch 2 that launched earlier this week. For context, Oppo announced the Watch X last week on certain social media channels. It is worth noting that the Watch X has not been released in China yet, the usual first stop for a new Oppo product. Presumably, this is because the Watch X relies on Wear OS and Google services, neither of which are prevalent in China.

Nonetheless, it seems that the Watch X will only be available in markets where Oppo is more popular than OnePlus. For example, the Watch X is currently unavailable in Europe, India and the US, which are all markets in which OnePlus sells the Watch 2. By contrast, OnePlus does not offer its latest smartwatch in Malaysia, which appears to be the first market where Oppo has released the Watch X.

Ultimately, the Oppo Watch X and OnePlus Watch 2 are one in the same hardware-wise. As such, the former features a 1.43-inch AMOLED display and boasts up to 4 days of battery life from its 500 mAh battery. Additionally, the Watch X measures 47 x 46.6 x 12.1 mm and weighs 49 g without its bundled strap attached. For reference, Oppo has priced the smartwatch at MYR 1,399 (~$295) in Malaysia, effectively price matching the OnePlus Watch 2 in the US. Unfortunately, it remains to be seen in what other markets Oppo plans to sell the Watch X yet.
