#OPPO Extends Smartphone Warranty to 24 Months

There is no typo on the above headline! With effective from 1 June 2015, OPPO will double its smartphone warranty to 24 months.

In view of the stiff competition in the smartphone market, OPPO aims to stand against her competitors by instilling confidence to consumers on her products’ high quality build and design.

The durability tests for the N3’s swivel camera involve 100,000 rotations, or up to seven years of regular use, and both the R5 and N3 smartphones are subjected to drop tests from twice the height of standard tests.

 

IMG_3121

(Picture above) OPPO N3 

Said Sean Deng, Managing Director of OPPO Singapore, “At OPPO, we take pride in giving the best to our consumers. This obsession to deliver only high quality innovative products and after-care services is the foundation of our brand. The warranty extension is another testament to that obsession.”

 

In addition to the overall warranty for smartphones, the one-for-one phone exchange period for consumer has also been extended. Compared to the seven days industry norm, OPPO’s new warranty will allow consumers up to 30 days to perform one-for-one exchanges.

 

The one-for-one exchange is valid for OPPO smartphones that suffer from hardware malfunction due to manufacturing defects, and the applicable warranty period will be based on the phone’s original date of purchase.

 

The exchange does not cover hardware failure caused by physical damage such as water damage, deliberate damage to the device’s structure, damage caused by the use of non-OPPO accessories, cosmetic damage, external accidents or fires.

 

Network, software system or ROM malfunctions, accessories-related damage, and loss or damage of stored personal data are also not covered by the exchange policy.

 

However, OPPO is also offering a one-time free-of-charge repair service for phones that have incurred accidental damage within the first year of the phone’s purchase, which is also a service currently exclusive to OPPO. Similar terms and conditions also apply to the repair service, which exclude, among other factors, the free replacement of parts for surface coatings designed to diminish over time, or cosmetic damage due to normal aging of the product.

 

The new warranty policy only applies to OPPO’s new range of products purchased from 1 June 2015.

 

OPPO smartphones are available at the OPPO Concept Store in Suntec City Mall, Singtel and M1 outlets, and other authorized retailers islandwide. Consumers can head over to the OPPO Concept Store for all matters pertaining to phone repairs and customer service enquiries.

 

Run to the Rhythm with Sony’s Latest #SmartBTrainer

(SINGAPORE, 26 May 2015) – Sony today announced the new Smart B-Trainer, an all-in-one training device and application that literally motivates your exercise regime with its range of features, such as intelligent music playback based on heart rate monitoring, various training plans, and real time voice coaching.

https://youtu.be/Yk8Fyg0z5k8

 

The Smart B-Trainer comes in a neckband-style design which consists of six types of sensors – heart rate, acceleration, GPS, compass, gyro and barometer – and measures as well as records 11 types of running logs – heart rate, burned calories, distance, time, speed, pace, cadence, steps, stride, running route and elevation.

Pink Smart B-Trainer

Based on a preset user profile and heart rate goal, the Smart B-Trainer measures your heart rate and automatically selects music for efficient training. Music tempo analysis is carried out by Sony’s 12 Tone Analysis technology, which extracts a variety of metadata through signal and statistical processing to analyse music waveforms. When your heart rate is higher than your targeted speed, a song with slower tempo will be automatically selected to guide you to slow down, and vice versa when your heart rate is lower than the targeted speed. Additionally, you can also adjust the tempo of the song to match your mood at the time of running.

Smart B-Trainer for Running is an app that enables you to manage running logs on your smartphone. It also provides a versatile selection of training plans, so you can choose one that fits your goals – be it to get in shape, build strength, or even to prepare for a marathon. After making your selection, send the plan to the Smart B-Trainer™ via Bluetooth® to begin training immediately.

White Smart B-Trainer

In an app which will launch later this year, Kin Tetsuhiko, a Japanese professional running coach, will be voice coaching you during training, warming up, and cooling down sessions. He will even share post-workout pointers, which can be checked on the app to track progress and design your next exercise regime.

Blue Smart B-Trainer

 Premium Training Plan in collaboration with MY ASICS

Smart B-Trainer can work in coordination with the MY ASICS Training Plan developed by ASICS, the “True Sport Performance Brand”. Training plans created in MY ASICS can be experienced in real-time on the Smart B-Trainer, and you can store and manage your running logs. Simply enter the necessary details in MY ASICS, such as your current level, sex, age, and training frequency to set six different phases, including Getting Faster phase and Going Further phase. You will then be able to see the training regime required to achieve your target.

After completing your workout, transfer your running log to the Smart B-Trainer for Running app to view the results. Easily compare your current session with past records through graphs and comparisons, assess your progress, and aim higher.

The built-in memory of 16GB stores up to approximately 3,900 songs, so you won’t have to worry about running out of songs to listen to while exercising. The Smart B-Trainer has waterproof performance equivalent to IPX5/IPX8, so you can run without the worry of sudden rain showers. Additionally, it can be used as a Bluetooth® headset to answer calls hands-free.

Starting from 22 May to 7 June 2015, the Smart B-Trainer will be available for pre-ordering at all Sony Stores and selected authorised dealers, at a recommended retail price of S$399. This promotion comes with a free 2XU Compression Shorts, worth S$139 that is redeemable from 11 June to 31 July 2015, at Key Power Sports, located at Velocity.
