In March of this year the OPPO Watch was presented officially the first smart watch from OPPO. After its presentation, the brand did not give us dates on when this watch was going to be launched in Spain, but it seems that this moment is already a little closer to being reality. The watch begins its deployment in Europe and can now be purchased in Germany.
At its presentation in March, the brand left us with several versions of this OPPO Watch. It was unknown which of them would be released in Europe, the NFC version was expected to be released on the mainland. There is good news, as the watch arrives with NFC and Google Pay support, so mobile payments can be used.
New OPPO Watch, the brand’s alternative to Apple Watch
The manufacturer OPPO has presented its first smart watch, the new OPPO Watch, very similar in design to the popular Apple Watch.
European version with Google Pay support
The design of this OPPO Watch clearly remembers that of Apple Watch, with its rectangular design. The watch, like many others on the market, also comes with interchangeable straps, so that it can be adapted to more different situations. As for functions, it is in charge of keeping control and monitoring of our physical activity at all times.
Possibly the main novelty is that the version released in Germany arrives with NFC. In its presentation in China, it was announced that there were several versions of the watch, so it was not known which version would finally arrive in Europe. We have already seen in other brands how the NFC versions of their watches or bracelets were not on sale in Europe. OPPO luckily makes the right decision.
OPPO Watch uses Wear OS as the operating system, with ColorOS as a customization layer. As standard we find applications such as Google Pay, Google Assistant, Online Music and more, installed as standard in it. So you can control the clock with voice commands, in addition to using it to make payments in stores.
