Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
Oppo Band is a fitness tracker that's similar to a Fitbit and many other rivals, including the Xiaomi Mi Band 5, Honor Band 5 and Amazfit Band 5. Just by wearing the Band, it will track your steps, calories burned and your sleep. It can do other things for you too, including waking you up in the morning, timing your pasta while it's cooking, giving you a weather forecast for today and tomorrow.
