Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oppo has recently had plans to move beyond just smartphones. The company launched other products including the Oppo Enco Free earbuds and an Oppo smartwatch. These signal a larger move of the company wanting to build not just phones, but its own ecosystem in the market. The Oppo Watch has launched a few days ago with the flagship Oppo Find X2 smartphone.
