The wearable has also been renamed. The Oppo Band is now the ‘Oppo Band Style’ for the international market. The company is yet to confirm how many countries in which it will sell the device initially, but India will be one of the first.

There are two variants of the Oppo Band Style: One variant will use a simple silicone bracelet, the second should clamp a metal counterpart. The Oppo Band Style still offers 12 workout modes, a heart rate monitor, SpO2 monitoring, a sleep tracker, and more. In China, the bracelet also has NFC, but it is questionable whether this will be retained for the international market. The fitness tracker is also water-resistant up to 5ATM. Other features of the bracelet are alerts, weather information, remotely control music playback on a smartphone, and so on.

The average battery life of the wearable is specified as 12 days. The device should be fully recharged in an hour and a half. In China, the Oppo Band Style, only known there as the Oppo Band, costs the equivalent of around 27 euros.

In the international market, for the first buyers, the gadget is available at $ 38, and then the cost rises to $ 41.
