I thought I'd mention but this watch has the potential to be one of the best cheap watches around, because it has an appstore which is rare on a cheap watch, if it went mainstream instead of being classified as a "hackable " ,"open source" smartwatch it can be just a normal watch with the potential to build your own apps.It's even better with 2.0 because it now has a more common sleek design.
Thanks! Yes, it's a good point. I think the out of box experience would need to be more polished (especially on the fitness side of things) and I'd have to have a curated section of the app store, but I think it could be a lot more mainstream.
It's tricky though - as you get more mainstream people get more picky. With the Bangle 1 I get people who buy it just to try out and then return it 2 weeks later for a refund. I'm not sure I got a single return from the original Espruino board, and I think as I go more mainstream that sort of thing will happen more and more.
WOW ... exited to get one. Any idea how fare away we are from kickstarter campaign? Best regards. Martin.
Hopefully less than a week now. I was hoping to launch on Monday but I got back from holiday to over 500 emails and a bunch of work, so I've had to delay it a bit.
I'm trying to get the bulk of the video sorted today - then maybe launch on Monday
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
