China Sells Fake Apple Watch Versions at CES

While the Cupertino-based company is only planning to present its new product this spring, one Chinese firm is already selling fake Apple watch at CES. Such reports are published everywhere on the web. It is said that Hyperdon [this company is based in China] offers fake Hyperdon Smart Watch that reminds of the future Apple Smart Watch gadget.

It is not a secret that there are many fake Apple products in China. Local customers can buy fake iPhone 6 and other models of the ‘fruit’ smartphones and tablets. Of course, fake gadgets cost less and this is why a lot of people purchase them.

As noted by those who got a chance to buy the fake watch at $27, this device works only when it is on. Otherwise its display doesn’t even show the time. The gadget’s icons are ripoff iOS designs, and you can even try to make calls and listen to iPhone music through the watch though this can be a headache as the fake device can’t pair too well.

The device makes you download one weird APK that works with jailbroken iOS smartphones only. You can get notifications from different applications, and, according to Hyperdon, its product can be charged through USB cable and work up to 180 hours from one charge [this statement hasn’t been tested yet].

While you can’t buy the counterfeit device in the U.S. it is available in China.
