Also, it is touted to deliver up to 21 days of battery life on a single charge under its Power Saver mode.
Originally, the Oppo Watch was launched in China in March with a starting price of CNY 1,499 (roughly Rs. 16,000).
The Oppo Watch comes with the flexible AMOLED display and includes two physical buttons on the side.
