The Oppo Watch 2 was subject to a slew of speculations at the time. It made multiple appearances on Weibo in the form of leaks.

Oppo Watch 2 Series Launch Poster
The Oppo Watch 2 series will make its debut in China on July 27 at 3 PM (local time). Regrettably, the launch poster does not divulge details about the Watch 2’s specifications and features. Back in May, XDA Developers had revealed that the Watch 2 46mm edition has been assigned model numbers like OW20W3 and OW20W1.
Furthermore, the publication suggested that the 46mm model will go up for sale in Steel Blue, Mine Shaft, and Dust Gray color options. The site went on to reveal that the the slightly smaller 42mm version carries model number OP20W2. This model will be available in Matisse, Water Leaf, Gold Sand, and Mine Shaft color options.
Oppo has suggested that the Watch 2 series will be better than other Android watches available in the market when it hits the store shelves. The company believes that its upcoming wearable lineup will outperform other powerful watches in the Android segment. It will be an impressive achievement considering that Oppo made its foray into the smartwatch segment in March 2020, and has already launched a slew of new products.
