Oppo unveils Enco W51 headset with ANC, smart Band with 50m water resistance
Oppo unveiled a more premium TWS headset and its first smart band. The Enco W51 improve on the Enco W31 formula with proper noise cancellation – the company advertises up to 35dB reduction in noise using a system with two microphones. Three other mics are used for in-call noise cancellation. There’s a total of 6 microphones on each bud.
When paired with a phone like the Oppo Reno4, which is capable of Bluetooth dual transmission, the headset can enter a low-latency mode - it can go down to 47ms, the worst case scenario is 94ms.
The Enco W51 are rated IP54, i.e. they have rain and sweat resistance. With Bluetooth 5, the buds should get a stable connection at up to 10m (and you can use only one bud if you wanted).
Their carrying case supports both wired and wireless charging. A 15 minute charge is enough for 9 hours of playback, a full charge takes 80 minutes. Then the battery is good for 24 hours of playback.
The Enco W51 are available for pre-order at CNY 500 ($70/€62). There are three color options: Velvet White, Azure and Feather Black.
The Oppo Band comes in two versions: one with a simple TPU wrist band and a more fashionable option with a metal ring.
It has a high-quality AMOLED display with a 1.1” diagonal and 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space. There are over 160 watch faces available to choose from out of the box.
The band is rated at 50m water resistance, so you can take it in the pool. In addition to swimming, there are 11 other exercise modes. A long-distance running mode can help you burn more calories while reducing fatigue.
There is continuous heart rate and SpO2 tracking. You will get alarms about heart rate irregularities and sleep problems related to low blood oxygen. The band can make an SpO2 measurement every second for 8 hours straight.
That aside, the advertised battery life is 14 days with a full charge taking 1.5 hours.
The expected features are all on board – notifications from your phone, music controls, alarms. Also, NFC can be used for mobile payments (AliPay is supported) as well as public transport.
The Oppo Band is available right now for CNY 200 ($28/€25), it comes in Black and Purple.
The fashion edition is on pre-order for CNY 250 ($35/€31) and can be had in Black and Quicksand Gold (the latter with 24K gold plating). Don’t forget the EVA limited edition gadgets of the Band which will be available soon (there are also EVA versions of the Oppo Watch, Enco W31, an AirVOOC charger and the Oppo Ace2).

Was just looking into this. I can only find the fashion one with NFC, but I'd rather have the other band. I can't find any replacement bands either.
