You Can’t Improve What You Can't Measure
Unlike other smart watches that require you to download external apps, Avid Watch comes with it’s own Avid Dashboard. A personal fitness web cloud service which allows you to store, analyze, and share your fitness progress with other Avid users or publicly brag and challenge by posting to your social networks.  It works seamlessly with your Avid Watch to help you stay on track with your fitness goals and to literally see just how far you’ve come.  It’s clean design gives you an easy to read detailed breakdown of each workout including distance, pace, speed, and calories burned.  For golf it will tally your average score for you, track putts, and deliver you a complete scorecard for each game and the season as a whole.

Risks and challenges

We finished the first tooling and made100 units for sample testing on each sporting function (running, cycling, golf, activity tracking), and also testing the notification function on iOS and Android phone.

We are also working on the web and app development to ensure we can provide the best user experience and features for our Avid users.

While we would like to cover the notification features work on as many as different vendor's Android phones (Google Nexus 4, 5, Samsung S4, S5, Note 3, HTC One), there might be a risk that some of the features will not work correctly on selected Android phones. So far, we have tested the notification features on Google Nexus 4, and 5 without any issue. And we will continue to test on the other Android phone in the coming days.

We plan to start the mass production in late December and deliver the rewards to our supporters in Aril, 2015.

We will be keeping our backers informed during our development and production process. Delays, unexpected challenges, good news, or bad news, we will be open, transparent and keep you in the loop.
