The watch runs on a custom version of ColorOS, tailored for smartwatches and based on Google's Wear OS. Moreover, it supports the proprietary Watch VOOC Flash Charge fast charging technology. 

The Oppo Watch features a curved flexible AMOLED display and has two physical buttons on the side. The 41mmm variant has a 1.6-inch AMOLED display with 320x360 pixels resolution. In contrast, the 46mm model packs a 1.91-inch display with 402x476 pixels resolution and 326ppi pixel density. It is only compatible with Android phones as of now. However, work on adding support for the iOS ecosystem is currently underway.

The watch is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2500 SoC, but there is an Apollo co-processor as well. Oppo says it can switch from the Qualcomm chip to the Apollo chip when it needs to save power. It comes with a wide range of workouts and also has an AI-based fitness regime feature. As for water resistance, the 46mm variant comes with a 5ATM water resistance rating, while the 41mm variant is rated 3ATM. It includes sleep monitoring as well.

Oppo claims the watch can fully charge in just 75 minutes, while 15 minutes of charging will provide enough juice to last for up to 18 hours. 

The 41mm variant is priced at CNY 1,499 (Rs 15,000 approx) and comes in three colour options of black, gold, and silver. The 46mm variant’s aluminium model is available in black and gold colours with fluoro rubber straps and carries a price tag of CNY 1,999 (Rs 20,000 approx).
