In what many are calling a sign of the ‘dumbing down’ of CES, a fake Apple Watch has been on sale at the trade show. The watch, made by Chinese company Hyperdon, is a complete rip off of the upcoming smart watch from Apple.
Mashable was first to share news of the watch online, calling it a “knockoff”.
“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.”
They say that company is based in Shenzhen, a city in China famous for the large presence of Foxconn factories and other consumer technology manufacturers. Foxconn is notable as one of Apple’s largest manufacturing partners.
