Fake Apple Watches are already on sale in China

Fake Apple Watches have gone on sale in China. Devices that look much like Apple’s new luxury product, but cost a lot less, are all over the Chinese online marketplace Taobao, the Financial Times reports.

Some of the watches on sale look nearly identical to the Apple Watch. Have a look on the Alibaba-owned e-commerce site. The real knock-off goods start at around 259 Yuan, which is the equivalent of about £27. The best copy, however, would set you back around 3,000 Yuan. That’s about £300 — pretty much the price of a real Apple Watch.

Funnily enough, the makers produce rip-offs of the Apple Sport (entry level) and the more expensive gold version, the Edition, but don’t distinguish between them in terms of price.
