Oppo Watch 2 ECG edition leaks in a set of high-quality renders


Back in the last year, Oppo unleashed its very first smartwatch dubbed Oppo Watch. The device also received a special ECG edition that reached global markets in mid-September. This year, the company unleashed the second-gen Oppo Watch 2, however, it lacked an ECG sensor. However, a new set of leaked renders suggest that a version with the electrocardiogram monitor exists. The new renders come as a courtesy from leakster Evan Blass, and reveal a slightly different variant to that launched in July. Will it come for global markets? Only time will tell.

The Oppo Watch 2 carries a design that quickly resembles the old Apple Watch series design. Under the hood, it carries a Snapdragon Wear 4100 processor along with an Apollo 4s coprocessor that fits inside the aluminum alloy casing. It serves to perform simple, low-power tasks in order to enhance the battery life. According to the company, the wearable provides 2 to 3 days on a single charge.

The volume of storage memory in the Oppo Watch 2 is 8 GB, It also comes with 1 GB of RAM which is enough for a smartwatch. Coming to the features, the watch supports eSIM, GPS, NFC, a heart rate monitor which can also monitor the level of stress. The wearable runs Oppo’s proprietary ColorOS shell. The company offers it in two distinct sizes – 42 mm and 46 mm. However, these two variants share the same components.

Oppo Watch 2 ECG variant

It’s not a surprise to see the Oppo Watch 2 ECG having a late arrival. After all, as we’ve previously revealed, the first model was released later on global markets. Usually, wearables with ECG need several certifications and approval from health authorities to enter certain markets/countries. These authorities attest to the quality of the sensors to ensure if their data is actually reliable.

For those unaware, ECG or EKG, is an accurate way to track your heartbeat. It’s much better than the optical sensors found on most smartwatches and bands. However, ECG is more complicated in terms of sensors, and as we’ve stated it requires approval to be enabled in countries. This feature is still limited to premium smartwatches. Sometimes, we see the release of new smartwatches without the ECG enabled.
