It has 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and runs on a version of ColorOS tweaked and optimised for smartwatches.
With the eSIM support and an ECG sensor, the Oppo Watch will take on Apple Watch and Samsung Galaxy Watch. There are other functions on the smartwatch, such as blood oxygen level monitoring, wireless charging, and up to 5ATM water resistance. The Oppo Watch also packs a 430mAh battery.
