The hands-on video that has recently surfaced online shows a smartwatch with slightly curved sides and bezels that seem to be a bit bigger than shown by the unofficial renders that were leaked not long ago. This smart wearable is set to launch in China on March 21 with a starting price of almost US$220.

If you happen to be one of those — myself included — strange enough to wait for hexagonal or irregular-shaped smartwatches, you will have to keep waiting because OPPO's upcoming Wear OS-driven smart wearable looks like an Apple Watch with curved edges and bezels that turn out to be larger than expected.

OPPO's upcoming smartwatch will be the first such product to join the portfolio of this Chinese OEM that has big plans for this year, when it should open local branches in most European markets — if the ongoing COVID-19 madness doesn't get in the way, of course. The list of technical specs includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2500 processor, 1 GB of memory, 8 GB of internal storage, and a 430 mAh battery that provides up to 21 days of autonomy.

Although it looks similar to Apple's smartwatch, the OPPO Watch is supposed to compete with lower-priced offerings. However, its many competitors will not be easy to beat: the new Moto 360, the Xiaomi Mi and Amazfit series, and the Mobvoi TicWatch Pro are the most popular ones, with many other underdogs also struggling for a slice of the market.

To be honest, I think that OPPO's smartwatch looks quite bulky and it might not be able to provide enough for those trying to find an affordable smartwatch that works with Android smartphones.
