Oppo Watch X review: Multi-day battery

Oppo Watch X

Designed for the fitness enthusiast, the Oppo Watch X stands out with its multi-day battery life. In our tests, the Watch X easily lasted up to four days normally with workouts each day. It can go up to 12 days with the power-saver mode, but we did not test this part. The smartwatch also automatically detects when you're working out. It comes with dual-frequency GPS, which makes tracking better for those running in a city such as Singapore with a lot of high-rise buildings.

Quick specs

  • Stainless steel chassis with sapphire crystal display
  • 47mm: 1.43-inch AMOLED screen (466 x 466 pixels)
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC
  • Up to 40 hours uptime

If you're wondering why the Oppo Watch X looks so similar to the just-announced OnePlus Watch 2, it's because they are the same, just branded differently depending on the market. The stainless steel Oppo Watch X comes in two colors with matching watch straps: Platinum Black and Mars Brown. Both look really good, but I prefer Mars Brown. You can also swap out the 22mm strap to another of your choice. The default sports rubber strap is very comfortable, though you may want to wash, and dry it after every workout if you have sensitive skin like me.

I like the bright, and crisp 1,000-nit 1.43-inch AMOLED display. It's very visible outdoors. At its side are two programmable buttons, though I left my unit at the default setting. You can change the double press or press and hold to open an app that you like. I tested this watch with light running and lots of quick walking, and it seemed to be close enough to what my treadmill was reporting. While running, the Watch will report your Ground Contact Timing, the less it's on the ground, the faster you are as a runner. The Watch also comes with a badminton tracker, but I was unable to find partners, and I didn't have rackets handy. I'll try to test this in the future and update the review if it happens (but don't hold your breath).

While the Watch X has an Always-on display, it's turned off by default. When turning it on, the Oppo Watch X will warn you that doing so will reduce battery life by two whole days. I think you're fine leaving the Always-on display off. The Oppo Watch X wakes up really quickly, so having it off all the time isn't an issue. Charging the smartwatch is also simple, but you'll have to use the included charger. I do like that a 10-minute charge will give you around 24 hours of use. It takes just an hour for a full charge.

Other nice things include connecting to Google Health, and the workout functions seem pretty easy to read. Do note that the Oppo Watch X only works with Android phones, you're out of luck if you're using an iPhone (though you'd probably be using the Apple Watch regardless). The Oppo Watch X is currently selling at S$449, with a two-year warranty. It's available from the Oppo website, Qoo10, as well as Oppo's TikTok. You can also get it from Lazada or Shopee.
