How would you like to get an Apple Watch Ultra with a $763 discount?
Well, you can’t have it, but you can get a Pebble watch that looks very similar to the Apple Watch Ultra for only $36 (via MacRumors).
The Pebble Cosmos Engage has a 1.95-inch display with a 600 nits brightness and always-on functionality. It also has Bluetooth-based calling, wireless charging, heart rate and blood oxygen level monitoring, and an AI voice assistant.
What makes it stand out amongst numerous cheap wearables is its uncanny resemblance to the Apple Watch Ultra. It’s essentially the same thing, down to the metallic body, big crown and button on the side, and a flat display. One of the wristbands on offers appears to be a copy of Apple’s Ocean Band, and the watch displays faces very similar to Apple’s in promo materials.
The price for the Pebble Cosmos Engage is 2,999 rupees, which is roughly 36 bucks (the price seems to be changing; the currently listed price includes a “61% discount”). The company also sells the Pebble Frost, which is a copy of Apple Watch, for 2,199 rupees, which is $27.
Apple’s Ocean Band alone is more than twice the price of Pebble Cosmos Engage, which comes with an Ocean Band knockoff.
It’s worth noting that Pebble is an Indian company with no relation to smartwatch company Pebble that was shut down in 2016 (the company’s intellectual property was acquired by wearables company Fitbit). While the watches it sells really do resemble Apple devices, chances are that functionality won’t be nearly as good.
