The wearable market in the last period has undergone a real surge in sales and interest from users. Perhaps it will be due to the need to always feel connected with the digital world or perhaps because of the functions that these devices offer, often on a par with smartphones and perhaps even more, the fact is that every manufacturer has thought to have its say in the wearable market, such as OPPO which a few days ago launched its idea of a smart watch, namely the OPPO Watch, alongside the recent OPPO Find X2 Pro, creating a combo to make the most demanding tech users mouth water.
As often happens at the launch of a new smart watch, OPPO Watch has also been "vulgarly" compared to the Apple Watch, as far as aesthetics is concerned but on the other hand, a watch either has a square or round design, not there is so much choice. Leaving aside the similarities of the two wearables to those who have time to waste with nonsense, OPPO Watch is certainly the object of the desire of the fans of the Asian brand, thanks to a curved OLED display and an ECG sensor.
OPPO Watch will also debut on the European market
On the release of China OPPO Watch series, each model is equipped with esim to make calls. For the price I think this is great value for the user.
Users will have to stay tuned for our global launch, there will be a separate launch in western Europe later on this year. 👀 https://t.co/nD9lFYBBAjadvertisement

But as often happens for new Chinese products, one wonders when and if it will also debut in our market, therefore the same doubt also applies to the OPPO watch. To answer is Brian Shen, Vice President of OPPO, who through a tweet reveals that the OPPO Watch will be marketed globally, therefore also in the Italian market, without however specifying a date but leaving us with an unclear "OVER THE YEAR ".
The original price of OPPO Watch is 1499 yuan, or about 192 euros at the exchange rate for the 41 mm variant and 1999 yuan, about 215 euros, for the 46 mm variant. Prices that are certainly greedy in comparison to Apple's solution, but which are inevitably destined to rise once they reach the European market, due to the taxes and the guarantee offered and unfortunately we know that in Italy OPPO is not really known as low brand cost.
