Product Information:

The new Apple Watch wasn't due to officially release until April 24, 2015, but counterfeiters already have fake Apple Watches listed for sale on China websites.

The fake Apples Watches look much like Apple's new luxury product, or are advertised using Apple's own stock advertising images -- a common practice with dishonest sellers. The fake Apple watches are offered at a fraction of the authentic Apple products suggested retail price.

China's e-commerce giant Alibaba, already under scrutiny of the Chinese government, and a US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) inquiry for selling fake goods, bribery and other illegal activity, doesn't seem to notice the Apple Watch counterfeit listings on its website, TaoBao.com. The fake Apple Watch listings are numerous and freely displayed with Apple's trademarked logos without regard for trademark infringement or copyright.

The quality of the counterfeit product is unknown, but the authentic Apple Watch Sport collection cases are made from lightweight anodized aluminum in silver and space gray. The display is protected by strengthened Ion-X glass. And the matching fluoroelastomer band comes in five different colors. The authentic watch also has Apple's warranty.
