Oppo in March started a journey in the wearable market by launching the Oppo Watch. Now at its annual Developer Conference, the OPPO Developers Conference (ODC), they announced a new version of their smartwatch called the Oppo Watch ECG Edition. The new wearable is a 46mm variant of the Oppo Watch, which at first glance doesn’t seem to have changed much in terms of design. But as the name suggests, the new version comes equipped with ECG as well as various other interesting features.
