How do you compete? We will soon be able to find out as the Oppo Band is now available for purchase in the UK, a few months after its launch in China. The price is £ 39.99, which is roughly the average price for this type of device.
Once we get caught up in the Oppo Band, we’ll bring you a full overview so you can determine if it’s worth your money and if it compares well to all rival trackers. Until we do, here’s what you need to know about the fitness band.
Oppo Band features
The Oppo bar resembles a ‘standard’ fitness tracker – it has a long, thin bar connected to a small screen. It is only available in black, has a water resistance of 5ATM and we do not know the tape material.
The screen has a diagonal of 1.1 inches, a resolution of 126 x 294 pixels, and it is a touch screen.
According to Oppo, the band has a 12-day battery life, thanks to its 100mAh battery, and that’s something we’ll definitely test in our review.
There are twelve ways of fitness in the band, including outdoor running, outdoor cycling, cricket and swimming, as well as some health functions such as sleep monitoring, heart rate monitoring, step counting and Sp02 monitoring.
There are also some lifestyle features, such as notification handling, weather reports, and camera controls.
From a broad overview of its list of features, the Oppo Band looks like your standard fitness tracker, so it will live or die as well as it performs its functions – is its activity tracking accurate, if its lifespan is long enough, and is it simple for use and pairing with a smartphone.
We’ll try these things out and more in our full review, so stay tuned for that in the coming weeks.
