Busines ethics China style. Alibaba pay only lip service to the non-counterfeit issue (in my view). And Chinese manufactureres will rip anything off for a fast buck.

Its a bad name,Alibaba and the 40 thieves in my mind stops me from considering anything on the site. Chinese knock off are always a bad idea, got tricked and stung once. Certainly wouldnt buy copy iWatch

They'll probably work better than the ones made by Apple anyway.

I've had a couple of Chinese knock-off watches that I bought for the hell of it on visits to China. One was a fake Rolex, the other I can't remember but it was another brand. The Rolex broke within a week. The other one lasted quite a long time until humidity seeped into it and the inside rusted. Definitely got what I paid for, which was very little. But my point is those were regular old battery powered watched with simple moving parts. A knock-off of a smart watch would be incredibly crappy on so many levels and would likely not be compatible with anything.

If you want to waste money, buy a Chinese rip-off.

Why buy Apple it's a generic over priced product sold to people who don't know tech specs yet claim they are experts

In China there are many grades of counterfeit goods. Sure if you buy a B or C grade item it's really cheap and probably looks/works terrible, but a AAA item is much more expensive (yet cheaper than the real thing), looks/works like the real thing, and often has even more features than the real one it's copying. Even in China, you get what you pay for lol.

My buddy in TX once showed me an SKS bck in '06. The darn thing jammed every 10-15 rounds & was stubborn to break dwn & re-assemble. Guess you can't ever half-ass a real Russian AK-47. . . . . But it was very-very cheap!

Do you have to have a fake iPhone also to make it work as with the real iWatch?

If you want to waste money, buy a Chinese rip-off. If you want to waste money, buy a Apple product

Watches shown on Gearbest site are a lot cheaper around $20+, or more for bluetooth. And artistic design is better than Apple and there are WAY more choices. Don't know about quality, not in the market. Think I first saw the Gearbest click ad on JT.
