The Oppo Watch 2 has been formally announced, although it will only be on sale in China for now.

It retains most of the design cues from the original Oppo Watch, although it will ship in 42mm and 46mm sizes – with the smallest device growing 1mm from the first generation.

It’s still all about the screen size, with Oppo managing to maximise real estate on its smartwatch. The 42mm Oppo Watch 2 will have a 1.75-inch AMOLED display with an excellent 326ppi.

Like last time, the 42mm has a Bluetooth/eSIM option while the 46mm has eSIM as standard.

While the Oppo Watch 2 ran Wear OS when it came West, it launches with Color OS in China, which is a forked version of Android 8.2.

As rumored, the Oppo Watch 2 will use dual chipsets, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 4100 running the show for intense tasks.

The secondary RTOS CPU is the Apollo4s chip which was mentioned in the rumors, and has been jointly developed by Oppo and Ambiq.

It’s used to hand off more features to the low power processor, thus extending battery life – and it seems it has paid off. The Oppo Watch 2 offers four days of battery life as standard.

And users have the option to use the secondary RTOS chip as a power saver mode, which apparently enables 16 days of battery life. We’re not sure how this limits the features of Color OS.

Fast charging tech enables you to get a day’s use from the Oppo Watch 2 in just 10 minutes.

As yet, there are no details on when/if the Oppo Watch 2 will head to the US/Europe – and if it will run Wear OS.

The 42mm Bluetooth-only version will cost CNY 1,300 (about $200/€170)

The 46mm with eSIM will cost CNY 2,000 ($310/€260).
