OPPO has unveiled an electrocardiography (ECG) -enabled version of its first-gen smartwatch in the course of its 2020 Developer's Conference. The wearable is essentially the same as the 46mm variant of this Watch, just with the new in-depth heart rate-tracking feature. The Watch also now also has a new League of Legends Limited Edition.

OPPO has announced its Watch ECG Edition, as teased earlier. It packs this feature in new units of its first-gen wearable's 46 millimeter (mm) case. The OEM asserts that it can take its new measurements in real-time through a simple button shortcut and detect common heart anomalies such as atrial fibrillation.

The OPPO Watch ECG Edition can also vibrate to alert the user to these conditions. It also features more conventional heart-rate monitoring, as well as tailored health recommendations based on it. However, the OEM describes this variant as leveling up to "medical-grade" due to its new ECG spec. This is because it is officially certified for the same, albeit only by the Chinese NMPA regulator.

On that note, the OEM had indicated that this new version of might be released worldwide: however, it has only mentioned upcoming pre-orders in its home country thus far, at a price of 2499 yuan (~US$367). Separately, the Watch is also now involved with its maker's partnership with League of Legends. It now has another special edition with this battle royale title as its theme.

This OPPO Watch variant, which also has a companion Find X2 special edition, is a tie-in with the game's world championship, which starts tomorrow (September 25, 2020). Their design and specs are to be confirmed in full on this date.

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.
