Oppo Band 2 Review: Great Value For A Fitness Tracker!

Over the past few weeks, I've been trying out the Oppo Band 2, a stylish fitness tracker that offers a lot of value for its price, well if you consider the Apple Watch aesthetic stylish, that is.


The Oppo Band 2 comes with a large, 1.57" AMOLED display that is easy to read, even in bright sunlight. It's available in two colours, Midnight Black and Baby Blue, the one I have here is the Baby Blue version which has a nice subtle gradient around the silicone strap.

The watch unit is just slightly thinner than the normal Apple Watch and it's lightweight at just 33g, making it comfortable to wear all day. I've even played a few games of badminton with it on and it's not obstructive in any way!

Back to the silicone strap, it is on the rather long side, I have a smaller wrist so I always strap the Band 2 on the second last hole. The excess flab will be quite irritating when it slips out but if you secure it well enough it shouldn't be a major issue.

Features & Experience

The band's user interface is relatively simple, you can find your way around everything without spending too much time. Setup is also straightforward with the companion HeyTap Health app which will provide a comprehensive infographic of your fitness statistics.

The Oppo Band 2 also has a myriad of fitness-tracking capabilities for activities such as running, cycling and swimming. My running routes were generally captured quite accurately (compared to Strava/Fitbit Inspire 3) but it does take a while for the record to show up in the app so you've gotta remember to check back for it. The Band 2 also automatically starts logging for you when it detects that you are walking or running for extended periods.

Like most fitness bands, it also has a heart rate monitor and can track your sleep patterns, making it a great tool for tracking your overall health and wellness. Media controls and notification alerts are also present here, along with a limited range of watch faces for you to choose from, with some having the function to show information like steps and temperature.

But, since it has an AMOLED screen built-in, custom images are definitely the way to go!

Onto some negative aspects, I did experience occasional connectivity issues where the watch will disconnect randomly and not connect back but resetting my phone's Bluetooth seemed to do the trick. Another downside of the Band 2 is that it doesn't have many third-party apps available, so you're limited in terms of customisation. The Band 2 also sometimes seems to have trouble syncing up notifications with my phone as notifications which I have long cleared on my phone still show up on the Band 2 until I manually remove them.


In terms of battery life, the Oppo Band 2 performs well, with a claimed battery life of up to 14 days on a single charge.

In my experience, the claim held up as I can easily go over two weeks without charging. The included cable is also quite short so you can bring it around with a power bank if you need a quick boost of power.

Pricing & Conclusion

The Oppo Band 2 is available in various retail and e-commerce stores at just S$99. This makes it extremely competitive against the Fitbit Inspire 3 or the Huawei Watch Fit 2 which are both over a hundred.

Overall, great value for a fitness tracker! It has a sleek design, comprehensive fitness tracking capabilities and a long battery life, making it a great choice for anyone looking to track their health and fitness.
