    It’s LCD and not e-ink? What’s the battery consumption going to be like, then?

    • EvanKr

      I think it’s still 7 days, which is pretty goof even for a variant of LCD.

      It’s e-Paper which has been used by most of the cheap ebook readers for a while now. It still gets good battery life, but trades faster refresh rates for lower contrast.

    I supported the Kickstarter its being released just when I’m about to ditch my iPhone for BlackBerry 10 phone. 🙁

    I really want one of these watches but I’m so glad that I didn’t contribute to the initial Kickstarter project given all of the shipping delays that have occurred. It just goes to show that the supply chain is just important as product itself.

    Not trying to troll, but I honestly think this company won’t be around much. I don’t see people adopting an e-ink phone, to me it just sounds gimiky and something you might buy then realize its impractical or pointless and never use again.

      E-ink PHONE? What are talking about?

    • Jeremy

      This isn’t a phone. It’s something to wear on your wrist to get a glance at what’s happening on your phone. This will be best for active people (running, skiing, etc) where you can keep your phone in your pocket but still get access to the stuff you need. There it’s going head-to-head with the Nike Plus watch which has been out for a year at the same price point (but that has built-in GPS though no real-time communication with your phone).

      It can also be good for remote control of your HTPC for geeks, etc. It’s a programmable watch that pairs with your phone. Lots of interesting applications.

    Variant of LCD? You mean the long lost monochrome displays of 10 years ago?

    The was and continues to be marketed as an “E-Paper Watch for iPhone and Android” on KS and GetPebble.com.

    What is your information about “LCD variant” based upon? I don’t think we’d be getting acceptable battery life of an LCD. I don’t want to recharge my watch daily. I would prefer monthly.
