The OPPO Watch and OPPO Band are now more compatible than ever with devices like the iPhone 12 and the iPad, thanks to OPPO's HeyTap Health app for iOS and iPadOS.
As reported by XDA Developers:
It means users of the OPPO Watch and Band can get iOS notifications to their OPPO device on their wrist, whilst tracking all of their daily health metrics, which now sync with the Apple Health App. Whilst it's still not the fully integrated experience of Apple's own smartwatches, some of these features will make the OPPO Watch and Band a more viable alternative to the best Apple Watch models currently available.
Using the app, users can also customize their OPPO Watch and OPPO Band watch face, and there are also personalized workout settings and more. From the app's description:
