The Apple Watch has dominated the smartwatch market since its release in 2015. With its slick design, clean interface and instantly-recognizable Apple branding, it’s the gold standard in smartwatches. Samsung and other companies have tried to compete, but – as is evidenced by the Apple Watch’s staggering sales figures – the public clearly has an affinity for Apple’s look and feel.

While Apple’s watches are clearly luxury items, it’s high time another manufacturer entered the fray with a serious competitor. That’s why electronics giant Oppo is attempting to dethrone Apple the king of watches. Its strategy? Build a watch that’s nearly identical to the Apple Watch.

Oppo recently announced its latest smartwatch, and early renderings are suspiciously similar to the Apple Watch. The designs are pretty much identical, except the Oppo watch features a curved digital display. Oppo’s watch also has two side buttons rather than Apple’s single button and digital crown design, but that’s pretty much where the aesthetic differences end.

We don’t know much about Oppo’s smartwatch beyond what it looks like, but we do expect it to launch in early 2020. It will also likely include a lot of Apple Watch users’ favorite features, such as fitness monitoring technologies. As more information becomes available, we’ll get a better sense of how this new device will hold up against the Apple Watch.
