Oppo Band Style Launched: Same but Aesthetic

Launched alongside the Oppo F19 Pro Series, Oppo Band Style is the first fitness band from Oppo to debut in India. It touts all the regular features that are now accustomed to every fitness band and is a ditto of the last year’s Oppo Band. However, as this the first time the wearable hits overseas, it is more or less good news for the consumer market.

Overview:

The Oppo Band Style flaunts a slightly more elegant and relatively more fresh design. While the fitness bands are getting more boring and repetitive in terms of design, Oppo has added a Style Strap, incorporated by a metal buckle, which ever so slightly has helped the Band Style to extrude out from the crowd. The metal buckle also allows the strap to be adjusted 360-degree around the fitness band, providing more freedom of wearability and orientation.

Oppo Band Style houses a 1.1-inch, 126 x 294 pixels, full AMOLED display. The display is 2.5D and is backed up by a polycarbonate housing. The band’s display supports full-colours, and under the hood, is powered by an Apollo3 chipset with 16MB storage.

The fitness band comes in two variants– one with the metal frame and the other as a simple TPU wristband without a metal frame.

Apart from the aesthetics, like any other fitness bands, Oppo Band Style does have the necessary fitness sensors. It accommodates an optical heart rate sensor, an SP02 sensor and an acceleration sensor. The SpO2 sensor tracks the blood’s oxygen levels. The heart rate sensor monitors your heart rate and alerts you for abnormalities. And, the acceleration sensor tracks the count of your steps and calculates the number of calories lost. The continuous SP02 monitoring can provide you a detailed analysis of your sleep, including the data of your sleep duration and sleep stage records.

Other Features

Oppo Band Style comes with 12 exercise modes: Outdoor Run, Indoor Run, Fat Burn Run, Cricket, Yoga, and so on. It is also water-resistant for up to 5ATM and supports BLE 5.0 for Bluetooth connectivity and pairing. The band is companied by the HeyTap companion app, and if you are wondering, there are up to 40 watch faces to keep you spry. The band runs on a 100mAh battery and provides up to 12 days of battery usage. Besides, it takes about 1.5 hours to fully charge via contact charging.  Currently, the band supports Android 6.0 or higher, and the company has promised to bring support for iOS devices very soon.

  • Message notifications
  • Incoming call notifications
  • Call rejection
