The new Oppo Band Style is undoubtedly the best affordable smart band in the market. With a 2.79cm (1.1”) fully colored AMOLED touchscreen display, you can see its screen clearly under direct sunlight without straining your eyes.  

You can even customize the watch face with more than 40+ different watch faces. This allows you to customize your watch face based on your mood and outfit. 

Oppo has shown its best innovation by sporting a metal buckle around the dial and comes with both vanilla and black color models.  

What more? This light-weight band is coming with a 5 ATM water-rating and is best for outdoor splashes and shallow dives in the pool.

Health and Fitness Tracking features

The best thing that we have experienced in Oppo Band 6 is the health tracking features, and here it has already bowled out some of its closest competitors in the Indian market in the same price-range as Mi Smart Band 5 or Honor band 6.  

You do not have to go through complex settings for tracking your fitness data with this band. Just connect your android phone with the band, and it will continue to store data on the phone with added freedom for the user.  

Unfortunately, it works with android devices only, much like the Honor 6, and the iOS version is still on wait.  

Sleep monitoring and SpO2 features-remain healthy, stay in peace.

The sleep-monitoring function keeps you updated about the sleeping pattern, heart rate, and stress management. The Mi band 5, however, is a little better than Oppo with its Rapid Eye Movement monitoring feature.  

Sleep-time oxygen monitoring is something commendable on this activity band. You can see your sleep pattern and SpO2 data on the companion app(Hey Tap Health App) in a clear graph form.  

As a side note, it is not medical equipment. But surely it will take care of your respiratory routines.  

Heart-rate Monitoring- listening to Beats on your go. 

Another pro feature of Oppo Band Style is the heart rate monitoring that keeps you updated about your heart’s health. Every time your heart rate goes below or above the normal limit, it alerts you.  

 Avail run-time heart-rate Monitoring and giving suggestions depending on your speed and heartbeat rate.  

Fitness tracking segments and sports mode

Okay, if you compare it with the Honor Band 6, the Oppo Band Style comes with a less in-built professional sports mode. You can avail 12 professional sports modes with this cheap-fitness tracker in India, including a run-time fat-burning monitor-that is for sure an add-on from Oppo.  

From this perspective, the Oppo band style is the best fitness tracker in India. Other than this, you are, of course, getting assistance for running, cycling, rowing, or cricket. If you are specifically looking for a fitness tracker for indoor activities like treadmill, check our top collection of best fitness tracker for treadmill in 2021.

The two specialized modes for badminton and yoga are indeed clever add-ons. Mi Smart Band 5 is availing only 11 sports modes, but it works with iOS platforms. However, it lacks a women’s health tracking feature. 

Smart features  

Oppo successfully integrates several smart features with its latest fitness band that draws the attention of the new generation. Here are some.  

  1. Find your Phone: Search your phone or click a photo directly from the band you bought for health monitoring.  
  2. Call, SMS, and Smartphone App notifications: Keep a look at your call notifications or reject calls directly from the band without stopping your workout. 
    Additionally, the Oppo Band Style has an alarm, timer, and weather updates to keep you updated all day long.  
  3. Music Control: You can even start, pause, or switch to your favorite songs directly from your stylish band.  
  4. Camera control: It is another helpful feature of this fitness tracker. It allows you to control your phone camera shutter right from your wrist.  

What is the Battery Life of Oppo Band Style?

Although Oppo claims 12 days (about 1 week 5 days) of battery life, Honor and Mi smart bands have 14-day battery life on a single charge. However, it depends on your usage and setting.  

Time to conclude

To complete our Oppo Band Style review, a waterproof band with health and fitness tracking features and a trendy outlook will indeed reign in the Indian market.  

The price is also within reach of commoners. But you can get the same features in this price range from other bands.  

So, decide before you buy, and specifically, if you are already obsessed with its look, it can be an excellent choice for you.
