OPPO Kenya is today introducing a new smart wearable device in the country. The new fitness band follows the success of the OPPO Smart Watch that was introduced last year. The new Smart Band is available globally in two variants: Basic Sport, and Style versions.
These are the prices of the OPPO Band:
- KES 5,999 for the Basic Sport Version
- Prices of the Style will be announced later on
OPPO is running a promo for the Basic Sport version which will have the first 100 customers on Jumia purchase it at KES 3,999. The promo runs from May 20th to May 23rd 2021.
The features of the OPPO Band are as follows:
- 1.1-inch Full-colour AMOLED screen
- Continuous blood oxygen monitoring which monitors blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) every second during sleep.
- 12 workout modes and other convenient functions, perfect for active, quick-paced lifestyles.
Continuous SpO2 Monitoring:
Nowadays, sleep problems are no longer unique to the middle-aged or elderly; more and more young people are also experiencing sleep disorders due to external influences such as stress and hectic schedules. The OPPO Band health monitoring function is specialized to detect sleep problems. It supports accurate sleep monitoring, heart rate monitoring, and continuous SpO2 monitoring—providing all-around records and analysis of its user’s sleep health.
The continuous SpO2 monitoring is made possible thanks to the built-in optical blood oxygen sensor. This component enables the OPPO Band to continuously monitor blood oxygen saturation per second when the user is asleep. During an eight-hour sleep cycle, it conducts non-stop SpO2 monitoring 28,800 times—fully measuring the user’s body oxygen saturation. With its continuous SpO2 monitor and professional sleep monitor, the OPPO Band can help users develop healthier sleep habits.
The OPPO Band also comes with a heart rate monitor. The built-in optical heart rate sensor can monitor the user’s heart rate around the clock. If the heart rate becomes too high, the smart band will vibrate to warn the user of irregular heartbeat. With the OPPO Band measuring heart rate during exercise, users can avoid over-training and learn what pace they need to keep to ensure that they are progressing towards their goals.
An Active Life with 12 Workout Modes
Besides sleep-related problems, another health issue that young adults are most concerned about is exercising. The OPPO Band has 12 built-in workout modes, including running, walking, cycling, swimming, badminton, cricket, Yoga, etc. With the OPPO Band recording the exercising data, users can check their progress in OPPO’s HeyTap Health app, which is key to boosting motivation for an active life.
The OPPO Band provides a wide range of choices when it comes to the watch face as it offers over 40 different designs for users to switch between.
The OPPO Band can also work as an extension of the user’s smartphone. Users can receive messaging and call notifications, control music playback, and even find their mobile phones through the band. Modern convenience for modern lives.
As for the battery, the OPPO Band uses a high-performance, low-power processor. Made with a large 100mAh battery, it can be fully charged in just 1.5 hours.
