A shameless Apple rip-off

Where have we seen this watch before?

From Ed Hardy in Cult of Mac:

The full specifications for the Oppo Watch are not yet known, as the official unveiling won‘t be for another couple of days. But its maker went ahead and to say it will have a 1.91-inch (48.5mm) screen at 326 pixels per inch. For comparison, the largest Apple Watch Series 5 model is 1.73 inches (44mm) and 326 ppi.

My take: Sound clunky.

    Folk who buy these pieces of crap are the “wannabes,” the imitators, the pretenders, who will cavort around hoping that all who notices these “pieces-of-crap” on their wrists will believe they are the real thing; a premium, high quality, expertly designed and crafted on the inside as crafted on the outside Apple Watch. It’s as comical as it is sad.

      Well, I think ‘following the trend’ is usually a sign of mental weakness*. But I also recognize that view is not universal. Some cultures value appearance much more than others. And for those, the look of prosperity can be important. But in many cases, a person in that culture will replace his/her look-alike for the Real Thing at the earliest opportunity, because having someone notice you’re wearing a knock-off is embarrassing.

      * In particular, I’ve never understood why people spend $$$$ to wear a company’s advertising, such as high end handbags.

    It’s Asian, its a copy. Sad but true.

    These imitations reinforce Apple’s messaging and platforms. Those purchasing the imitations acknowledge Apple’s design prowess and social draw, while others take note.

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…

    …and the sincerest declaration of needing to be noticed.

    Why would they copy Apple Watch?

    Forbes told me on March 11, 2015 that “the Apple Watch won’t sell” because “ … it misses the point of what a watch is for”

    🙂
