With the growing demand for fitness bands, Oppo seems to be joining the ranks as it is set to debut its first fitness band with the launch of Oppo Band Style on March 8.
The Oppo Band Style will be Oppo’s first fitness band and it is expected to launch alongside the Oppo F19 series. Similar to most other standard fitness bands in the entry-level segment, Oppo’s fitness band will also come with features like real-time heart rate monitoring, SpO2 measurement, and more to give users an idea of their health metrics. Oppo claims that its first fitness band will come with 12 workout modes, which will be good enough to take care of most exercise regimes.
The pandemic opened a whole new world for the fitness band industry as fitness band sales skyrocketed after everyone had to stay at home and take care of their health. A few months back OnePlus debuted with its first fitness band. Meanwhile, Xiaomi is already leading the smart band market and it released the latest Mi Band 5 and Redmi Smart Band recently.
Oppo Band Style specifications and features
Oppo Band Style comes with a 1.1-inch AMOLED display with the USP ability to continuously monitor SpO2 levels (oxygen saturation). Oppo claims that the built-in optical blood oxygen sensor in the smart band will conduct non-stop SpO2 monitoring roughly 28,800 times during your eight-hour sleep cycle. Moreover, it’ll also come with support for sleep tracking and heart rate monitoring.
The Oppo fitness band will feature as many as 12 built-in workout modes including walking, running, cycling, swimming, yoga, cricket, and badminton among others. The user will be able to track the exercise data and progress through the ‘HeyTap’ health app.
The other specifications and features will be revealed upon the launch of Oppo’s fitness band this week.
