Xiaomi launched its latest smartwatch in India just yesterday which is also a worthy competitor to Oppo’s already launched smartwatch in India. Both the watches have their differences, so let’s put them against each other to see which one wins the fight.
Keep in mind that Oppo has two variants for its smartwatches, a 46mm model and a 41mm model. In this article, we will be talking about the 46mm model.
Where the Mi Watch Revolve has a circular display and design, the Oppo watch on the other hand has a square design and display. The Mi Watch Revolve has a 1.39-inch circular AMOLED display with a resolution of 454×454 whereas the Oppo Watch has a 1.91-inch square AMOLED curved display with a resolution of 402×476. Both the watches also have Always-ON display functionality.
While the size of the display shouldn’t be an issue for anyone, the resolution on the Mi Watch Revolve is just a bit better than the Oppo watch but the difference would be hardly noticeable. The rest depends on the user if it wants a circular style display or a curved square style display.
On the Oppo watch, we have sensors like Tri-axial acceleration sensor, Gyroscope sensor, Geomagnetic sensor, Barometric sensor, Optical heartbeat sensor, Capacitance sensor, ambient light sensor. On the other hand, Revolve has sensors like PPG Heart Rate Sensor, Three-Axis Acceleration Sensor, Gyroscope, Geomagnetic Sensor, Baraceptor, Ambient Light Sensor.
While both of them have the basic sensors, the Oppo watch has an extra sensor which is the Capacitance sensor that improves the touch response on the watch and doesn’t have the Baraceptor which is used to measure blood pressure (present on Revolve), instead it has a barometric sensor for measuring altitude.
Software and Features
The Oppo Watch runs on Google’s WearOS and is powered by the Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor which was launched back in 2018. The Revolve on the other hand runs on Xiaomi’s own software just like the Mi Bands by the brand.
The Mi Watch Revolve has Bluetooth 5.0 for connectivity whereas the Oppo Watch has Bluetooth 4.2. Where the Oppo Watch has support for 14 Sports modes, the Oppo watch will have much more sports modes considering it supports Google Fit app and HeyTap Health app.
The Revolve has support for over 100 watch faces whereas you can download a bunch of third-party watch faces from Play Store for the Oppo watch. The Oppo Watch has 8GB of memory and 1GB of RAM.
Both watches have 5ATM water resistance. What the Oppo watch has and Mi Revolved doesn’t, is the NFC. You can also pay at certain shops with just a tap with the help of Oppo Watch whereas this functionality isn’t present on Xiaomi’s Mi Revolve.
The Oppo Watch works with WearOS App by Google and Mi Watch Revolve works with Xiaomi Wear app on Android and Xiaomi Wear Lite on iOS.
While the performance will also be based on real-life usage, the Oppo Watch will have much more versatility in terms of features and updates as it is powered by Google’s WearOS. The Bluetooth connectivity though might be a minor downside for Oppo Watch as it has the previous generation of Bluetooth, but connectivity shouldn’t be a problem on both.
The Revolve is backed by a 420mAh battery whereas the Oppo Watch has a 430mAh battery. The Revolve has a Pogo Pin charger whereas the Oppo Watch comes with a Magnetic charger and has VOOC flash charge support which will charge the watch within 50 minutes. The Revolve will take around 2.5 hours to fully charge according to Xiaomi’s own claims which is a huge difference when compared to its competitor.
While battery life of both of those devices depends on real-life usage, the Oppo Watch definitely wins in the charging department as the Oppo Watch charges much faster than the Revolve.
The Oppo Watch is available for Rs 19,990 on Amazon, Flipkart and Oppo’s own store. The Mi Watch Revolve is available for Rs 9,999 in 2 colours which are Chrome Silver and Midnight Black. The bands on both watches can be changed according to the user’s liking.
While the Oppo Watch has a better charging speed and is much more versatile than Mi Watch Revolve, with a price difference of Rs 10,000, the Mi Watch Revolve definitely gives a better overall value when putting them against each other.
