Oppo Watch ECG Edition has been launched in China as a new addition to the Oppo Watch lineup. Launched back in March, the Oppo Watch is the first smartwatch by the Chinese company, coming in 46mm and 41mm size variants. The Oppo Watch ECG Edition comes in only 46mm size and carries the same specifications as the other two variants, with an additional ECG or electrocardiogram feature. It is offered in a single stainless-steel option and comes with IPX8 water resistance.
The Oppo Watch ECG Edition is priced at CNY 2,499 (roughly Rs. 27,000) and is up for sale in China. This is the same price tag as the stainless-steel model of standard Oppo Watch.
