The Apple Watch and Galaxy Watch may be two of the most popular wearables on the planet, but they are facing new competition and this time it comes from Chinese technology company OPPO. The company has just announced the launch of its new OPPO Watch line, which comes with a feature that can be quite useful.
That's because, in addition to all the usual features of the smartwatch, such as health tracking and displaying messages on your wrist, it can also be charged quickly.
This means that a quick 15 minutes at the dock will provide you with 16 hours of use – perfect if you have left it in bed all night to track your sleep patterns, but then want you to move during the next day.
OPPO also boasts that its larger 46 mm watch is the world's first double-curved display, which should make it more attractive when attached to your arm.
If you want the option smaller than 41 mm, you get a more standard AMOLED screen.

Both devices are equipped with Google's Wear OS, which means they have access to a variety of applications, including Google Pay and Google Maps.
Other features include always-on heart rate monitoring and your five-minute wrist exercises with voice training should help users stay a little more active on the go.
“With this launch, we are celebrating new ways to connect with the home, office or gym while on the move – something that will become increasingly important as we emerge from the blockade. With a battery life of up to 30 hours – which can be extended for 21 days in energy saving mode – we were determined to design a watch with our UK customers, which meant they would never be caught on the move, " said Kevin Cho, managing director of OPPO Mobile UK.
The OPPO Watch 46mm with LTE connection is available from October in black or shiny gold for £ 369.
The smaller 41 mm model will be available from September in black, silver or rose gold for £ 229.
Along with these watches, OPPO is also expanding its wireless headset offering – launching the true wireless OPPO Enco W11, Enco W31 and Enco W51 in the UK.
OPPO Acoustics' first active noise canceling wireless headphones, the OPPO Enco W51 are ideal for those on the go, offering wireless charging, professional audio quality and smart touch controls in a comfortable and iconic design. They cost £ 89 and will be available next month.
Two new additions to the Enco series include the Enco W31 (£ 69) and Enco W11 (£ 45). OPPO says that these music creators offer an exceptional user experience at a competitive price, the true wireless Enco W11 headphones support Bluetooth 5.0, offer 20 hours of battery life and powerful bass.
