In our Oppo Band Sport review content, we take a look at the smart wristband of the company, which focuses on wearable technologies as well as smartphones.
Oppo has recently launched smartphone models as well as to different accessories has started to become a company that has started to move towards and catches its own line in this regard. The last product of the company, which has been coming up with earphone models for a long time, was the smart wristband called Oppo Band Sport. Now, let’s take a look at the general features of the Oppo smart bracelet in this content.
Oppo Band Sport review – Design
First of all, let’s start with the design, as always, because this time we have a smart bracelet that offers full touch screen control. Yes, there is no physical button on the Oppo Band Sport model. Compared to the models we are used to seeing a button on the right side, this time we see that all the operation is left to the touch screen.
This screen, which is fully touch and uses Amoled display technology, is 1.1 inches in size. Depending on the interface, it has a vibrant and bright display. You can adjust this brightness level from the wounds as you wish. As you can set it between 10% and 100%, of course, options such as automatic lighting are also included. During the two-week period where I used the Oppo logo at the bottom of the screen, I did not encounter any glitches or touch problems.
The Oppo Band Sport model has a plastic strap. After passing the button part of the strap through the other, you fit it into the hole and adjust it according to your wrist. Many holes are included here, so many that I can almost say that even children can wear it.
Interface and features
First of all, even if you connect the phone via bluetooth, you need to download the application called HeyTap Health in order to have full control of the bracelet. In this application, you can access exercise statistics, alarm, applications, tips and wristband settings. Of course, there are also options such as changing wristband interfaces and adding new interfaces.
When we come to the wristband interface, where we only use a touch screen, we see that we can change the watch interface by swiping left and right. When you drag down the wristband screen that reflects the notifications on your watch directly to the screen, you can access the notifications, settings, tools, weather, breath control, sleep tracking, blood oxygen rate, heart rate, exercises and daily activities menus, respectively. When you swipe the screen from the bottom, you can access the same menu in reverse. While in a menu, dragging to the right acts as the back button.
Yes, Oppo Band Sport has standard features such as exercise apps, heart rate and sleep tracking, as well as measuring the oxygen rate in the blood. Likewise, the features that we have just started to see in smart wristbands such as breath control have not been overlooked.
Hardware and battery performance
A processor called Apollo 3 is used in the smart bracelet. Along with the processor, there is 512kb of memory and 16mb of storage. I did not encounter any glitches or freezing problems in the use of the interface and application. All these applications I have mentioned work very stable. Of course, although we cannot test it, it is also stated that the wristband is pressure resistant up to 50 meters. Of course, as with all watch and smart bracelet products, salt water, that is, sea use is not recommended.
When we look at the battery side, we see that a 100 mAh battery is included. Even with heavy use, the battery can last up to about two weeks. At least, I can say that I used it very often and I only charged it once, since I tested it constantly during this time of use. So, I can say that the battery performance gives a very good result.
Everyone wants the battery of a smart bracelet with so many features to last a long time. The OPPO Band Sport model has a 100mAh battery. What OPPO promises is that it provides up to 12 days of battery life. However, it should not be forgotten that this period varies according to usage (high vibration power, high brightness, notification display interval, etc.).
As a result, we can say that the Oppo Band Sport model has become a good smart bracelet with its features and battery performance. Of course, the fact that its price is 350 TL causes it to be in a segment with strong competitors. However, if you are looking for a smart bracelet in this price segment and have the opportunity to test it in a store, I can say that it is one of the models you should take a look at.
