“Chinese consumers unable to wait – or afford the Apple Watch – can now order a cheaper knockoff,” Michael Hatamoto reports for DailyTech. “Authentic Apple Watch smartwatches will retail in price from about $350 up to $17,000, but a fake knockoff can be purchased for as little as $30.”

“Chinese consumers can purchase the “AW08″ smartwatch from Alibaba’s Taobao website with next-day delivery anywhere in China. The watch currently costs $59, can connect to Google Android devices, and promises up to 120 hours of total battery life,” Hatamoto reports. “Other knockoff watches include the D-Watch, Airwatch A8, and Ai Watch – all affordable smartwatches designed to look just like the Apple Watch.”

Hatamoto reports, “Some products are openly being promoted as the Apple Watch, while others are available with an ‘Apple Watch lookalike’ marketing tag.”
