Later today, Samsung will officially unveil its latest Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro smartwatches, while in the meantime, Oppo has unveiled its latest and most advanced smartwatch, the Watch 3 Pro. It is the world’s first production model based on the 4-nanometer Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 single-chip system.
For the arsenal of features and capabilities implemented in the Oppo Watch 3 Pro, it immediately follows that the price is enough for itself – $ 280 for the version with a fluororubber strap. The leather strap option is slightly more expensive at $ 295.
Watch 3 Pro is the world’s first smartwatch not only in terms of SoC but also in terms of screen. The thing is that it is made using LTPO technology, due to which dynamic frame rate adjustment is supported in a very wide range. For example, when the device is not in use, the frame rate may drop to 1 Hz. This approach significantly saves battery power – 15% compared to traditional AMOLED screens.
The display is large – its diagonal is 1.91 inches. Resolution – 496 x 378 pixels, maximum brightness – 1000 cd / sq.m. The screen supports always-on display function.
The second chip paired with Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 – Apollo 4 Plus. It takes over control functions during periods of inactivity or when not much computing power is needed. And it also happens to extend autonomy.
With active use of all device functions (eSIM, NFC, constant heart rate monitoring, etc.), the autonomy of the device is 5 days. If you do not use the watch so actively, the autonomy reaches 15 days. Battery capacity is 550 mAh, fast charging system is supported: 10 minutes of connection to the charger gives 24 hours of battery life.
Oppo Watch 3 Pro supports 100 workout modes. In addition to heart rate and SpO2 sensors, ECG recording with automatic analysis of cardiovascular pathology is possible. The thickness of the watch’s aluminum case is 12.75 mm, and the weight is 37 grams.
Along with the Watch 3 Pro, Oppo has also introduced a simpler version – the Watch 3. It is equipped with a 1.75-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 430 x 372 pixels and a 400 mAh battery capacity. Oppo Watch 3 is naturally cheaper – $ 235-250, depending on the version.
