Oppo’s 5 minute charge Smartwatch

oppo-smart-watch-leak-640x327Imagine having a smart watch that can go from 0 to 100% in just 5 minutes of charging. Oppo certainly is. There is a possibility the Chinese is on their way to perfecting the technology to make this possible.

With some fuss over the Apple Watch 18-hour battery life and folks glowing over their Pebble’s week long e-paper approach there is no simple solution short of placing a bulkier battery leading to larger and slightly more off putting form factor.

Oppo’s is employing a┬ánext-generation VOOC charger. We have seen VOOC charging in both the Nexus 6 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to pull more power in and deploy is sensible to prolong battery life. A watch naturally has a small battery, e.g. 300mAh in place of a 2400mAh in you average smartphone. Utilising a similar charging style this could slash the recharge time down to minutes. Only time will tell if the battery will be able to withstand frequent charging.
