Meet Hyperdon ‘Smart Watch’, a $27 Chinese Apple Watch knockoff


Fake Chinese Apple Watch

At the CES 2015 floor in Las Vegas, a Chinese company was showing off an Apple Watch knockoff that it was selling for only $27. 

The company behind this Apple Watch knockoff is based in Shenzhen, China and is known as Hyperdon. Apparently, the company sells its product stores through retail stores in the United States and China, as told by its representative to Mashable.

The company calls its watch the “Smart Watch” with the representative claiming that it has a battery life of “more than 180 hours.” At first glance, it is almost impossible to distinguish this “Smart Watch” with Apple Watch. Turn on the screen and you will be greeted by icons that are a blatant rip-off from Apple Watch.

For a knockoff, the watch packs in some impressive technology, including a pedometer, stopwatch, alarm, a vibration motor and motor. The Mashable reporter who purchased the watch was able to pair it with her iPhone after a few tries and was then successfully able to make phone calls and play music through it. Apparently, the watch also has an option to display notifications from certain apps including WeChat, but requires the installation of a shady looking APK.

A testimony to the company’s shady practices is the fact that the representative told the Mashable reporter that the price of the watch was $30, and not the $27 she quoted earlier, after she returned from an ATM with the money.
