I seriously urge you to reconsider, I pre-ordered mid December with shipping advertised end of Dec, it is now almost March and they dont even reply to requests for a refund, today I did a chargeback with bank. Keep in mind they will actually draw money on the pre-order and I hear there Paypal account is blocked so I doubt that you can pay via Paypal, if I were you I'd wait until the product actually hits shelves(unlikely). Another thing is that Rocki and Omate have split and I am guessing Omate will struggle to get moneys owed to them by Rocki, its possible Omate will go bust.

That's a lot of negative speculation. Its also possible that getting Rocki out of the way is better for Omate in the long run. The watch itself is not a failure and there's really no other watch like it with its features. I fully understand the risks of owning a Kickstarter product but this thing is looking good.

I must agree, the Omate is one of the best smartwatches around.

PayPal account was frozen due to multiple refund requests in a short period. I even had mine frozen at one point because of three refund request for donations made through xda in a week. PayPal froze my account, demanded that I issue refunds using another funding source even though there was more than enough money in the account. PayPal also took a month to give the money to those that requested the refunds and then took six months to let me have access to the near $500 in the account. During the six months they also blocked any incoming donations. In short, PayPal operates outside of FTC guidelines and could care less about the customer or vendor as long as they get paid.

As far as the rest of your noise. It's not a retail product where there are tens of thousands of these things sitting in a warehouse. They are hand assembled by a company with less than 10 employees that also gets hundreds of emails a day, packs, labels and is tagged on hundreds of social media post a day.
