Cardieo Smartwatch is a SCAM! (Here's Why) - Krazy Ken's Tech Talk

Sains & Teknologi

The $50 Cardieo smartwatch is said to be almost as "good" as a $300 Apple Watch. But do not be deceived. Cardieo's ads and website are full of false advertising. This product is a scam! Here's why…

    not to say it's not a scam but to be fair even real stuff that is ip68 usually will say not to swim with it, even if they show it in promos, and he said the money back would still be possible, which if true would be better than the real products that will have the warranty voided if the internal water markers are triggered, it also seems like they've just hired a call centre that deals with multiple companies, to make them seem more legit.

    So, to add more fuel to the fire: Going to their site now, when you click on one of the many "Order Now" buttons, it takes you to the page of what looks like another knock-off fitness tracker called Watch Track. What makes all of this seem fishy is that the contact address for Watch Track, when searched in Google, also shows, at the same address and suite (which is a UPS Store, BTW), a party bus company, a supposed power-saving device called Stop Watt, and a dash cam called Cam Handy. Even more strange, the website domains for Watch Track, Stop Watt, and Cam Handy, were all registered within two seconds of each other in June of 2020. One wonders if Ken would be willing to go down the rabbit hole on this one. My guess is the person that owns the party bus company is trying some side hustles while business is slow because of Covid.

    Love your content but I have to say it this time, I’m sick of the phrase “cheap Chinese-made garbage.” Say “cheap garbage” is amply sufficient, and adding racial implications will only fuel more racial biases. The fact that cheap garbage tends to come from China is because China literally makes every daily gadget out there (including quality ones), and I really hope people can start to see that.

    In my opinion, if they were HONEST about the product's functionality and quality, I think people would still buy the watch for $50, even based on your review. Many parents would buy the watch for their kids as a cheaper alternative to other smartwatches, especially younger kids(10 and under). Kids tend to be rough on tech and I know parents cringe at the thought of dropping $300-$400 on a product that their kids will likely lose or break. However, $50 on a product that mostly works would be more acceptable. Plus it could be presented as a "starter" watch to the children with the promise that if they can care for this watch they might actually get the more expensive smartwatch later on. I think there is a legitimate market for this watch. The "GET RICH QUICK" mindset of the people promoting the watch has actually caused them to miss out on a very real and lucrative opportunity.

    I unfortunately fell scam to this horrible piece of crap fake cardio watch scam ! I didn’t realize they spelled it wrong by putting die in it lol ! It cost me over $109 in disputes and I never got my money back even after the fact that I sent it back to the sender it “never returned “ was sent to me months after the purchase and came completely broken and wouldn’t even turn on after 5 seconds so much for battery life . I hope those people get sued for the lies and stealing and hardship they cost . Screw these people who pray on people like this . I am so mad and all the upsales of course I got all the extra cheep wristbands too big for my wrist .

    I wish I would have found you a month ago.. I thought I was a bit tech savvy, I know how most gadgets work, but I am not so savy with the marketing and value of some tech products. So, I bit on the Cardieo watch, and got up sold the charger as well... 🙁 I also saw the claim of waterproof-ness.... and wore it in the shower, and it too quit working... I sent them an email saying how the watch quit. They said, show proof of purchase or invoice, AND a short video describing the issue with the watch... I just showed that the watch no longer worked... they sent me a new one, no further questions asked... so theres that...😊 but yeah pretty disappointed by its less than average performance... 🙁

    I don't get why people buy this crap when xaomi makes really, really nice smartwatches that do everything an apple watch does (except the 2 lead EKG which is irrelevant and generally not very useful - I'm a paramedic, trust me, the 2 lead on an apple watch has been a cause for so many freaking pointless 911 calls) for like $50-100. I use the amazfit (partner brand to xaomi, basically the same) fitness-focused band, it was like fuckin' $25. It has tons and TONS of fun faces, and does literally EVERYTHING my wife's $250 fitbit smartwatch does, including the smart wake, blood oxygen, pulse (again, these are fun features but not very accurate for a lot of fun medical reasons) and reads my texts/locates/unlocks my phone, everything I want, for $25. It's literally better than the fitbit version anyways because it doesn't lock off the health tracking features behind a monthly subscription paywall, and doesn't have the bulky screen size of a full smartwatch, so I can wear a NORMAL watch on the other wrist and not look like a doofus. But Xaomi and Amazfit both make full size smartwatches too for just a hair more money. But no other company apart from fitbit (whom has the aforementioned paywall) even makes a fitness-focused slim/narrow bracelet style band that has smart-wake technology other than xaomi/amazfit, so this $25 smartwatch doesn't even have a competitor for me to want more.
