DSTIKE Deauther Watch X is a cheap wireless hacking tool that runs the ESP8266 Deauther firmware | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

The DSTIKE Deauther Watch X is a Wi-Fi hacking tool that can be used to test wireless networks, powered by the ESP8266 wireless microcontroller and running the open-source Deauther firmware from SpacehuhnTech. It only works on 2.4GHz networks, since 5GHz Wi-Fi is not supported by the ESP8266. It also features a real-time clock module for displaying the time, like an actual watch.

If you are not familiar with the term, a Wi–Fi Deauther is a device that can perform deauth or de-authentication attacks on Wi-Fi networks. It can kick other devices off a Wi-Fi network they are connected to, for learning or other purposes.

The Deauther Watch X is the latest product in the DSTIKE Deauther Watch series from Travis Lin and we previously took a look at DSTIKE ESP32 Watch Development Board. The Watch X development board comes in a wristwatch form factor, uses an ESP8266 module instead of ESP32, and integrates a new charging circuit and power control mechanism.

It is not the best-looking watch but it gets the job done. It is targeted at network enthusiasts and developers looking to test their networks and protect against deauth attacks.

The open-source Deauther firmware comes pre-installed on the Watch X. The Deauther is advertised for educational and development use but it is easy to see how it can be used for malicious purposes. Note that using a deauther on a network that you don’t own is illegal in most countries and can lead to prosecution.

The DSTIKE Deauther Watch X is priced at $39 on Tindie and the DSTIKE website. The firmware is open-source and you can build your own deauther by following the tutorial on the developer’s website.
