Oppo, a popular smartphone maker in China, is planning to launch a smart watch that can fully charge in just five minutes.
According to some media reports, Oppo is gearing up to launch an intelligent watch that could be unveiled alongside its forthcoming flagship device - the Oppo N9.
Oppo's first ever smart watch (dubbed, "OWatch") will most likely to be powered by Google's Android Wear platform. This report claims that the watch will sport circular build, though there are very few details available.
We know very little about the specs or features of Oppo's purported watch, but the device would have ability to fully charge in just 5 minutes. This could be a killer feature, at least for some.
Smartwatches have long been criticized for having low battery life. Take for instance, Motorola Moto 360, there's no arguing that the watch is the most attractive Android Wear smartwatch yet. However, the watch fell short because of its poor battery life. Recent rumors indicate that Apple Watch will only be able to support 2.5 hours of continuous heavy use, which could be a big setback for Apple.
Oppo's watch faces stiff competition, with Android Wear smartwatches already on the shelves, and the Apple Watch set to hit stores in 2015.
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been leaked as yet for the OWatch, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
