For the Spanish consumer, OPPO is a brand more famous for its Android phones; However, like other Chinese companies, in its homeland it is much larger and covers more fields than mobile telephony. It is something that many people are surprised by, especially when they realize the great investment in unknown terrain in the West.

In the case of OPPO, perhaps what stands out most is its work in the field of health, which began in 2019. Originally, this commitment was born with the motivation of providing users of OPPO devices with various proactive management solutions. of health. The ultimate goal was to adopt a healthy lifestyle, moving from traditional reactive medicine to preventive healthcare.

This is something that many users of wearables, such as activity bracelets and smart watches, know very well; By having more data about our body, it is possible to make decisions to improve our health before it is too late, a process of ‘prevention’ rather than ‘cure’.

The result of this commitment to the health field was crystallized in 2021, with the opening of the Oppo Health Lab in southern China made up of three physical laboratories, each focused on a different area: fitness, clinic and sleep . Each lab focuses its efforts on areas such as cardiovascular health, fitness, sleep health, mental health and remote healthcare. 

The OPPO Health Lab team is made up of interdisciplinary research experts in the fields of biomedicine, algorithms, sensors, data science, and software and hardware development. The lab focuses on two main types of results. To start, the technologies, including the design of algorithms, sensors and data modeling. Second, innovative concept products, the results of which we have already seen in devices such as the OHealth H1 family health monitor and health apps for OPPO smart watches and phones. Finally, the laboratory also carries out data collection and analysis; For three years, it has collected more than one million real test data , obtaining more than 100 invention patents.

The success of the OPPO Health Lab has motivated the company to open a new health laboratory , this one in Dongguan, in 2024. The new center is expected to cover an area of ​​3,500 square meters, dedicated to professional health testing equipment that offer support to OPPO’s research in sports health.
