Oppo Band Style with oximeter, 12 training modes launched in India


Oppo Band Style comes with up to 12 training modes which help you keep track of your activities closely.

STRONG POINTS

  • Oppo Band Style is the company’s premier fitness band in India.
  • Oppo Band Style comes with a blood oxygen level monitor (SpO2).
  • Oppo claims that the Band Style supports 12 active training modes.

Oppo Band Style is the company’s first fitness band in India, launched at the F19 Pro event. The new fitness bracelet has several health-focused features, but the most important is the SpO2 monitor. It is basically a blood oxygen level monitor that tells you how much oxygen is dissolved in your blood at any given time. Measuring the level of oxygen in the blood became crucial after the pandemic, with people scrambling to buy oximeters. Smartphone makers have just incorporated a slightly toned down version of this oximeter into fitness bracelets and smartwatches to capitalize on needs while improving wearable functionality. Oppo Band Style encompasses all of these features for a low price.

A fitness band is all about tracking your fitness level, which is why Oppo emphasizes the features that will give you a complete picture of what’s going on with your health. Not only the blood oxygen level and heart rate, but the Oppo Band Style also tracks sleep cycles. Oppo says the Band Style’s health monitoring system specializes in detecting sleep issues. These issues could be your erratic sleep schedule, sleeping less than recommended, sleeping too long, and sleeping poorly. The data for all of these issues will be collected by Band Style and connected to the HeyTap Health app which will analyze it to give you suggestions, according to Oppo.

Oppo Band Style price in India

The Oppo Band Style costs Rs 2,999 and is now only available on Amazon. It comes with two different colored straps – basic sport version and styled version – in the retail package.

Features of Oppo Band Style

The Oppo Band Style has a 1.1-inch color AMOLED display which the company claims was also used on the Oppo watch. This display is rectangular and the strap with the metal frame makes it interesting. There is a heart rate monitor and a SpO2 monitor on the Oppo band style. And these two sensors are capable of recording real-time data continuously, but it will affect the battery life of the fitness bracelet. Oppo claims the fitness group uses a low-power processor inside with a 100mAh battery that only needs an hour and a half to fully charge.

Oppo also claims that the Band Style has 12 training modes, including cycling, yoga, swimming, badminton and running. Since swimming is supported on the fitness bracelet, it is water resistant up to a certain level although there is no IP rating. The data collected is saved in the HeyTap Health app. This app is available on Android and iOS platforms and should be used to pair the fitness bracelet with the phone. In addition, the Oppo Band Style can receive messaging and call notifications, control music playback, and even find the paired mobile phone.
