The OPPO Watch ECG Edition is now official
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.
