OPPO is gearing up to reveal a bunch of devices at its global launch event in a few hours. One of them will be the Watch 2 Glacier Lake Blue edition. Others include the flagship OPPO Find X5 Pro, a pair of new OPPO Enco X2 True Wireless Earphones, and Oppo Pad.
The company released a few posters ahead of the online conference. Images of the products have also been uploaded to OPPO’s official website today. The new timepiece is already available for pre-order.
OPPO Watch 2 was released in China last summer but it is not yet available for purchase outside the local market. It comes with a number of useful upgrades over the first generation. This includes the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 chip, a dual operating system and double the storage memory. Other improvements come thanks to the SpO2 sensor, better stress tracking, GLONASS and more. Plus, you get eSIM support, over 50 apps, and 100 sports modes.

Which means there’s probably not enough if you’re still sticking with the original watch. But the new chip should allow OPPO Watch 2 to run Google Wear OS 3.0 when it becomes available in a few months.
As a reminder, in China, smartwatches manufactured by OPPO run on Color OS. This was updated to version 3.0 a few days ago. Internationally, however, the company’s watches are based on Google Wear OS and can therefore use Google Pay, Google Assistant, Google Fit and Google Pay.
OPPO Watch 2 Glacier Lake Blue Edition
The Glacier Lake Blue edition of OPPO Watch 2 is a slight design overhaul more than anything else – offering an additional color option. In terms of actual hardware, it appears to be the same.
But, as its name suggests, the device embeds a ski algorithm. Beyond that, there is also a new national level physical test for junior high school students. It allows them to take fitness tests themselves, evaluate their performance and generate personalized training plans.
It will be interesting to know if we hear today about an international launch of OPPO Watch 2. The first generation device can be bought in many countries, so the availability beyond the local border of China should arrive soon.
The latest timepiece launched by the China-based company was OPPO Watch Free. Unveiled last September, it features a square design with an AMOLED display. It lacks built-in GPS but has all the basic fitness sensors, including blood oxygen level tracking.
