OPPO Band Specifications
The all-new OPPO Band is a 1.1-inch full-colour 26 x 294-pixel resolution AMOLED display. It features a continuous blood oxygen monitoring function, which monitors blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) every second during sleep.
The OPPO Band continues the OPPO aesthetic with Continuous SpO2 Monitoring. The OPPO Band health monitoring function is specialized to detect sleep problems. It supports accurate sleep monitoring and heart rate monitoring
Continuous SpO2 monitoring is made possible thanks to the built-in optical blood oxygen sensor. This component enables the OPPO Band to continuously monitor blood oxygen saturation per second when the user is asleep. During an eight-hour sleep cycle, it conducts non-stop SpO2 monitoring 28,800 times—fully measuring the user’s body oxygen saturation.
The OPPO Band also comes with a heart rate monitor. The built-in optical heart rate sensor can monitor the user’s heart rate around the clock. If the heart rate becomes too high, the smart band will vibrate to warn the user of irregular heartbeat.
The OPPO Band also offers 12 workout modes including running, walking, cycling, swimming, badminton, cricket, Yoga, etc. With the OPPO Band recording the exercising data, users can check their progress in OPPO’s HeyTap Health app.
The OPPO Band provides a wide range of choices when it comes to the watch face as it offers over 40 different designs for users to switch between.
The OPPO Band can also work as an extension of the user’s smartphone. Users can receive messaging and call notifications, control music playback, and even find their mobile phones through the band.
As for the battery, the OPPO Band uses a high-performance, low-power processor. Made with a large 100mAh battery, it can be fully charged in just 1.5 hours.
