So far it don't look as good as good as the Smart Smoke Watch


It looks better to me. It shoots the smoke so it doesn't look like it comes from the wrist but rather the hands, it also tells the time!!! I almost bought the Smart Smoke watch but I think I'm gonna go with the Gold Watch

I don't trust them as far as I could throw them and I'm the world expert on smoke devices.

Never had a thing go missing with DHL and that price is insured.


I must agree with mark on this one DHL is much more reliable

And with UPS most of the time I have had to go down to my local post office to collect the item

Then get stuck with GBP 20 handling fee that's on top of the VAT and custom charge this on top of the VAT
and the overtop shipping charge from sansminds

I think I pass !

Just wanted to chime in here. I was lucky enough to see the watch over 6 months ago - maybe more. What I saw blew my mind. I have been following the watch closely because I have tried it myself and seriously think it's the best magic product I have ever seen.

The detail on the mechanics are what really took my breath away. They literally created the technology from ground up and it is revolutionary not just in the magic world but also the science world. I remember telling Willie at the time to forget developing this for magicians and get this to the medical industry where he would make some serious money. The technology is really THAT advanced. The blower they had made for this watch I believe is the smallest in the world and has uses way beyond magic. This is where Willie and his team have really set new standards for magic prop designers. I am going to write the story on this product up in VANISH MAGIC MAGAZINE because it's a truly remarkable story of how much time, money and creative thought went in to bringing this to magicians.

I can imagine these should eventually go up in price because at the time I first saw the watch I suggested it retail for $1500 - so the price right now is amazing!!!

You can't compare this to any other smoke watch on the market because the technology is WAY beyond what is already out there. This has been in development for many years and the smoke production itself is so much better. The method is DIFFERENT. The main issue with other watches is that they use an old oil system - this does NOT. You won't stain your clothes or get an odd smell. You can do this again and again without refilling. It's far more practical for the working magician. You also get way more smoke and the smoke itself is more visual (stronger). Another feature, and for me one of the most important is that the smoke really looks as though it comes from the hand and not the watch. This is in part because of the new technology they created but also where and how you can adjust where the smoke comes from. It doesn't matter the size of your wrist because they have thought this through and it can be adjusted for any size wrist. It's like comparing apples with oranges. This far outdoes any smoking watch gimmick on the market - I know because I have one other and putting them side by side you can see the VAPR watch is far superior in all aspects.

If you are lucky enough to get one then it is something you will use and at this price I think it's one of the better deals I've seen.

Congratulations to the team behind this and to Willie Tsai - you have started a revolution and long may it continue ...

This is gotta be the best magic product I have seen. What sold me is the smoke doesn't look like it comes from the wrist but inside of the hands. Beside smoke I am surprised the watch with this quality is only so cheap!

So to confirm, and if I understand correctly, the device can only be activated with the remote, right?

And will refills for the regular VAPR device work with the watch?

Must be different in Canada mobiles have 12 months in the U.K as do all electrical I am aware of.

One website is called Parcel Monkey.

It works Canada to UK, they are showing $25 shipping by DHL but that does not include insurance, which is $10 for up to $500.


Totally agree to that. We in Germany have even 24 months on electrical products. Mobiles, Laptops, etc. (The fans of my Asus Laptop got very loud after ~20 months and even tho I said it's because of daily use, they replaced them for free...)
I don't think that anyone has to do this at all... Noone should offer free repair for daily wear, but at least for technical issues, 12 months in my opinion is a minimum for companies who believe in their product quality. If the quality of a product is as good as they promise, they will easy go through 12 months without having issues.

I was away for vacation and can't believe I missed the blind campaign! Are there people actually got it for $170? That's insane!

PendletonThe3rd I use vapr on a daily basis. From the size of it I don't think the cartridge could go into a watch.

Hey folks. Just got some personal time here to answer a few questions.

Saturn UK :: Lucky you. Unfortunately in order for item to go to your DHL it has to go from our local DHL. DHL is not reliable here. Of course special arrangement can be made to make it work for you; under the condition that we only take the responsibility up to the door of DHL. We'll take photos of your box with shipping info. Once the box is given to DHL carrier, we take no responsibility of when, how, and the condition the parcel may or may not arrives. If that works for you, I'll send out a memo for an associate to reach out.

Legendary Wizard :: The offer was for our Blind Campaign supporters only and ended when we closed the registration for Blind Campaign. Those supporters chose to support us without knowing what they were purchasing at all. We decided to offer them products of equivalent value so they pretty much get the Vapr Watch for free. Just a way to say thank you to our loyal supporters with Christmas spirit.

JackMagic :: Next time Smile

Paul Romhany :: Paul! I wasn't expecting a review this soon. Thank you so so much for the kind words. I really appreciate you liking my work! Thank you!!

PendletonThe3rd :: The refill works on a entirely different system from the original Vapr.

GAMJoker :: Germany is amazing! Unfortunately we are not a billion dollar giant and we can't afford to do that because we don't have the margin they have. If we ultimately go into wholesale for this item and adjust the price up with considerable amount accordingly, we'd definitely consider offering an all year round warranty under your advise.

AaronishMagic :: Yes our early supporters made their purchase at $179 and we are sending them a $200 product basket on top. We even randomly picked 3 participants to refund in full and still send them the watch AND the gift product basket. On top of that, 3 different supporters are going to get our products that won't be released until end of next year with everything listed above... so yup you missed all that. Next time follow us closely my friend!

Hope I got some questions answered here.

-Will

Is there any other ways to activate the smoke besides the remote feature? I love it but worry about the remote battery dying

No more comment from me.

The way you price and deal with your customers is your business, but I'm not buying this now if you can't be sure your product will work for more than 3 months and its not even an item people will use every day!

Will,
Since you seem to check this board, it is not clear to me from the website how you can tell if your order is in the first 300. I would sure like to know if I will get my order in January or sometime in 2017.

Thanks David Wax

I got part way through the checkout and then got hit with $140 dollars for shipping!!!

There is no way it costs this much to insure and ship to the UK by UPS or similar.

I was also concerned about only having a 3 month guarantee, what comes with 3 most of warranty these days, don't they think their product will last a year, if you want a year you have to pay an extra $100!

If they want nearly $500 for the watch why not just say so, I may just have ordered it right away, but virtually doubling the price during checkout is not on.


I'm with you on that. $140 to ship is insane! If it were not for that I'd have bought too.

Hi Will,

I am thinking of getting it. My concern is that the watch would appear too huge on the wrist.
Can you tell us the dimensions (diameter and case thickness in mm) of the watch, so we can gauge how it will look when we are it?

Looks awesome btw! Really thinking about getting one.

Me too, but also would need the measurements and dimensions.
Can not deduce them from the video promo

How long does it take to refill the watch and how long will it last? (Not the clouds of smoke, I mean the time after you refilled it, because not everyone is using it 80 times within a week or two Smile )

I really love this Watch, it's awesome. And also I really wanted to back on one but the 140$ shipping to germany makes me really think about it. I mean the Watch is totally worth it, but there must be cheaper ways of getting it shipped.

I wonder if SansMinds would offer a trade-in for us Vapr users?
