Shenzhen-based Hyperdon was selling fake Apple Watches for $27 at CES.
The Chinese company’s knockoff Apple Watch is actually called “smart watch,” but at first glance, it looks exactly like Apple’s upcoming product.
The watch’s screen only displays when it’s turned on, and many of its icons are blatant ripoffs of Apple designs. The pairing process took a few tries, but once connected to my iPhone 6, I was able to make phone calls and play music through the watch. It even vibrates when I get a call.
The Smart Watch also feature a pedometer, stopwatch, alarm, and a feature called “Anti-lost,”
which most likely warns the user when they are out of range. The watch charges through USB, and according to a company representative, the batter life is more than 180 hours.
Hyperdon says the Smart Watch sells its products at retail store in the U.S. and China, but would not elaborate on locations or types of stores.
