What passes for bling in China

"Gold edition" multimedia watch barely cracks $100.

Chinavasion

The tech industry's unfortunate bling factor has not escaped the overseas wholesale market. Case in point: Chinavasion, maker of so many multimedia watches , has come out with a "gold edition" of its own.

This timepiece, which can play music and videos on a 1.8-inch LCD, also has built-in Bluetooth so it can work with phones and other devices wirelessly, according to GeekAlerts. Yet this is China we're talking about, so don't expect Western luxury prices . The top-of-the-line 4GB model of this edition comes in at $103.87. Then again, it probably isn't real gold either--following another trend that country is known for.
