so long as the battery is good in them what would it matter? just plug it in at night with ur phone.
its a good idea and i think this guy will make a fortune
Yeah I'll be getting the $115 black one, will be awesome.
Holy s***, I've never seen or heard of this before and it's about time something like this were on the market.
$150 for a watch *with an open SDK*?! To me, it's worth ten times that much if it can do all it says. To average Joe with a watch that can only do what it can do out of the box? Sure, I can see how you'd have to sell it pretty well at $150.
But to me, an experienced software developer? This thing's basically Arduino or RaspberryPi on crack.
Edit: If I knew I could sell 50 units, I'd happily chip in $10k.

It's a good idea but I'll wait for version 2. These things always have something lacking. At this point you know they're going to be made, and with that kind of investment you might even see the R&D pick up or the prices drop, etc...
Don't know if I'd be able to bring myself to wear a watch though, especially one that needs recharging. I have a Tokyo Flash watch that was a lot more expensive than this, and I don't wear that, though all it does is tell the time in a strange way.
told my dad about this and he wanted me to get him one. oh well guess he can wait until the next batch.
anyone else notice that ALL of the rewards are sold out? (0 of x remaining)
I spotted it earlier, and avoided it. I f***** hate the idea of having to charge my watch.
But how much of a profit will they pull directly from the kickstarter.... they needed 100k, got 10 mil. This seems dodgy, I wonder if that dream team will start fighting over it.
