OPPO Watch Free: everything you need to know
Design and display
The style is quite familiar and sets aside what is seen with the standard model to embrace a rectangular display, similar to that of Realme Band 2 (or rather with Huawei watch fit e Honor Watch UK). Obviously it is not to be taken lightly, since the device immediately shows a premium soul: the panel is surrounded by a frame that seems metal, but is actually made of polycarbonate. There are no physical buttons and all operations are carried out only and exclusively via touch. The strap is in silicone while the colors available are that Black e Gold.
The display is a unit AMOLED da 1.64 " with a resolution of 456 x 280 pixels, DCI-P3 range and a density of 326 PPI.

As for the functions of OPPO Watch Free, we do not find the GPS but otherwise nothing is missing: we have the monitoring of heart activity, sleep, stress and SpO2, together with the various ones sports modebeyond 100. Obviously there is NFC support (optional) for contactless payments.
The device is equipped with a microphone and support for the Breeno voice assistant, even in offline mode. An interesting detail of the wearable is the presence of a particular eSports mode: once activated, all notifications are sent only to the watch and not to the smartphone. This novelty only works with the Find X3 and Reno 6 series.
In terms of autonomy we have a battery from 230 mAh, which can offer up to 14 days of use on a single charge. Thanks to the fast recharge, 5 minutes will be enough to get one days of duration.
