They take money right away. I paid by PayPal and my money was taken right away. But that's ok. That's the way a community funded project works.

Magicalos, yes they do! That's what the crowd funding campaign is for. We are asking for help from the community to make this happen. And that's why you are getting it at $250 while the retail is $400. As our supporter, you are buying at dealer price.

funnyclown, the batteries are supplied by Seiko Japan directly. Each one lasts well over a year. Due to its small size, it's not the most common in some countries. I'd recommend picking up an extra as it's just a few dollars. It'd save you shipping a single battery in the future. Or if you are our regular customer, the team can easily toss a battery in any time you need it.

There goes my morning ritual. Have a great one folks Smile

Hi Will,

I have written an email over 72 hours ago with no response to when they will restock the batteries. I have already placed my order so I really want the batteries added to my order. I wish they would respond to me. Maybe you can use your magic pull to help them answer my question about when I can order the batteries again.

Hey folks,

Our team has been going through all email confirmations manually over the past couple of days; we are preparing for the coming delivery. The team will get to your email as soon as possible. Meanwhile, you can PM me and I'd be happy to assist.
My schedule is pretty tight right now as I am on a few projects as well as preparing to leave town again, but I'll try my best finding a time slot in between to help you out.

Thanks for all the love and support boys!

-Will

Any idea when the ones who asked for the watch to be shipped without the piece will ship?

The 10th is tuesday and I haven't gotten a confirmation so I kind of feel cheated if they ship it the 9th and I don't get the extra piece.

Why didn't you wait a little longer?

No shipping information so far ... I am one of the "300" backers.
Also got the email and wanted the additional component.
Hope to hear good news from "Sansminds" soon!

Hi Sasha

We apologize for the delay. Recently a new regulation just pass and it made shipping electronics more complicated. We are working with UPS to solve the issues at the moment.

Sent this message on Saturday 7th January in a PM to Will, but never received a reply:
Hi Will,
I have one Vapr Watch on order Ref: 21XXXXXXXX
I have heard that the batteries will last about 1 year.
Please could you supply me with the Battery model Type and Voltage so I can source replacement batteries locally.
Many Thanks

Regards

Hey Tazbo,

I did hear back in regards to the battery. The one year battery used in the Vapr Watch is a battery made by Seiko Watch company that is a rare super small battery only found in Japan. SansMinds said they are currently out of stock on extra batteries but after the campaign ends regardless of success or failure they will make a large order of batteries for those that want them.

Here is the note I received from SansMinds in regards to battery.


HI Michael,

I understand your concern. Perhaps my wording in my last email did not communicate right.

Regardless the outcome, we will have more stock of batteries. We are out of stock now as that's all the extra we have. We will have any extra battery when the campaign end as it is better if we purchase it in bulks. However, we have not wrapped up the negotiation with the supplier so we have temporary disable the batteries purchase. If anything goes wrong, it is easier for us to handle a small batch of batteries and get it to everyone.


Hope that clear things up.

What's the model number and voltage of the battery, so we can look into this ourselves. We are still in the dark. :-(

They never gave me model or voltage but said this in a previous response. Then later Rich clarified that regardless of outcome they will order more. But he never gave me the type of battery


"Those batteries are specially ordered from Seiko from Japan as the timepiece is made by them. We are not sure if that is a standard around the world. We will have more stock if we get into mass production. Currently, we already sold out of the extra we have.

Rich"

Notwithstanding the fact that they will have a supply of batteries, I think most of us would also like the option of looking to see if we can source the batteries directly ourselves so we are not tied into potential expensive postage and overpriced batteries in the future.
Or maybe this is part of SansMinds long term goal. ;-)

Rare or not, why not share the information.

And if these batteries are not easily obtainable or this is a risk of no batteries available in few months or year, then I have to say this is a case of bad design. The power to run this gadget is key and without it, all the unique selling points of this very ambitious project are moot. Well maybe not the aesthetics because it is a nice watch.

I am sure we will get more information soon.

I hope we get new info on shipping and batch #2 onwards.
