Hey all, Rodney Just here (Director of Sales and Marketing for inWatch Z). I have just sent an email to JarlSX, and we will be getting a Z to em VERY SOON in the meantime, I am happy to speak to what Z does and does not do! I am the one who has made ALL of the Videos you see with Z on the Indiegogo Campaign (http://bit.ly/inWatch), so I have had a lot of Hands on with the Phone/Watch. Let me know any questions you might have, OR if there is anything you would like to see Z do, and I am happy to show it on the campaign. Talk soon, cheers. -R

haven't seen your email yet, Rodney

@simple1i i'm willing to help with development/ideas, but with past experience (and still ongoing) with crowdfunding projects like the Kreyos Meteor and the HOT Watch, i'm not willing to bet 250$ on yet another watch

I think there are only one version of the Sony Smartwatch 2 (SW2) just different wrist band.

There are many many thing that make the SW2 better.

- Always ON

With same usage I can use the ZWatch maybe 18H hours before end of batt, each time you light up it decrease batt life quickly. SW2 can works 3 days with 18 at 20H by day, otherwise on ligh use it works 4 at 5 days.

SW2 perfect phone compagnion, many app sync phone data. Perfect notification mail, sms, hangout, skype...... perfect control of phone, beautiful notification, dialing, answer call.....

Made your own watchface in less 1min, and very amazing watchface : (I change watchface almost every day)

Ok, so I was going to wait for the z2 or moto 360 but now I think I'm just going to go ahead and a "cheap" smartwatch to see if it fits my life. I've heard great things about the smartq z watch. Should I just go for this one or the u8, u8 pro, sony smartwatch, or what do other people recommend. I'd like to keep the cost to under $150 just to see if I even need a smartwatch.

well, i wouldn't pick the U8. or the U8 pro for that matter. simply because the lack of support/development (or any of those cheap things, you get what you pay for)

i'm pretty happy with my Smartwatch 2, though i might be getting a G Watch or Moto 360 (depends on the price)

the smartq z might be a good choice as well, but you might want to wait a bit longer for the z2/p1 (anyone know when it will finally be available?)

Yeah, I was going to wait for the z2/p1 to show up but it keeps getting pushed back. It isn't even listed anymore on the iprotablet site anymore... Like JarlSX said, if anyone has any news on this watch please post it here.
