OPPO Kenya launches new smart band with oxygen analysis feature

Chinese consumer electronics company, OPPO has expanded its wearable device presence in Kenya with the launch of OPPO Band which will be available in two variants- Basic Sport and Style. The smart band comes with a blood oxygen analysis feature, that monitors blood oxygen saturation levels, commonly known as SpO2, even while the user is asleep.

The feature was made possible by the infusion of an inbuild optical blood oxygen sensor in the band that helps with continuous SPO2 monitoring, enabling users to monitor blood oxygen saturation at all times. In addition to above, the OPPO Band also provides 12 workout modes along with many other features that are suitable for an active, and busy lifestyle.

Regarding the design, the Band displays OPPO aesthetic with a 1.1-inch full-color AMOLED display screen. It extends a wide range of choices to the buyer when it comes to watch interface, with more than 40 different designs to choose from.

It is worth mentioning that the OPPO Band is also equipped with a health monitoring feature that specializes in detecting sleep-related issues. It also supports accurate sleep monitoring, SpO2 monitoring, and heart rate monitoring- offering a complete analysis of user’s sleep health.

Elaborating further on the significant features of the wearable band, the built-in optical heart sensor is capable of monitoring the heart rate of users at all times. In case the heart rate becomes high, the smart band will start vibrating and warn the user of irregular heartbeat.

Equipped with a 100mAh strong battery, the device also records exercise data with users able to track their progress in the HeyTap Health application.  

According to sources, OPPO Kenya will initially commence the sale of the Basic Sport variant from May 20, 2021, across the nation. The gadget will be available on Jumia for Ksh 5,999.
