When companies like Apple are concerned, not everyone can afford them or even some people don’t like their price to performance ratio. People don’t want to pay for the brand tag. Hence Chinese companies are here to provide value at low prices compared to their competitors. One of the biggest smartphone manufacturers Oppo launched its Oppo Watch in March. And now it is all set to launch the Oppo Watch in European markets.
The product with model number OW19W12 has passed the FCC certifications. Thanks to it, we have some live images that show the watch in its full glory. Other than live images, we also have the information of where you will be to buy the watch. FCC descriptions read“Purchase on Amazon: OPPO Watch” which means that the Oppo Watch will be available on Amazon.
