Does a smartwatch always have to cost 300-400 dollars, or can a cheap Chinese smartwatch from AliExpress compare? – How good are the cheap smartwatches from AliExpress and how much do they cost? I have investigated these issues, and have for this test bought a cheap U8 SmartWatch for 12$. The U8 Chinese SmartWatch from Aliexpress is available in the following colours – black, white, red and looks at first glance very chic, but what really lies beneath the display?

I paid 12$ for my Aliexpress smartwatch and so far everything have worked out fine. It looks chic and for the price it is amazing. Would never spend 300-400$ for something that might be better but definitely not 40 times better. There are many shops to buy the U8 smartwatches from. Of course there are many more model available at Aliexpress but if you want a cheap one, the U8 smartwatch is the best bargain.

Because the price is so low on most Chinese smartwatches, you don’t even have to pay any additional taxes, when entering your country. Amazing.

I will try and order a slightly more expensive Chinese smartwatch from Aliexpress soon, to see if they give even more value for the money. Some smartwatches between 20-40$ look too nice, especially the GV18 watch, which is also waterproof.
