New Campaign coming next Monday!

Sorry for the inconvenience everyone!
Thanks for your time today. We’re so happy to share with you our vision of just how large an impact our personal lifestyles and fashion will have on the ever growing wearables industry.
With all the added functionality we see on the latest wearable devices, it’s easy to forget that a watch is not only meant to be a functional device that notifies you of meetings, calls, and messages, all while constantly reminding you of how healthy or unhealthy you are. A watch plays a vital role in allowing the people around you to see a representation of your personality. As these high tech devices migrate into all aspects of our lives, what once were easily obtainable accessories are becoming more and more costly, and not everyone is able to properly express their sense of style.
Apple Watch without a doubt will be one of the most celebrated timepieces of all time because of it’s capabilities, which is why we’ve chosen to start our watch band collection with Apple. At Monowear, we are hopeful that all Apple Watch users will not only be more productive and improve their lifestyles, but they will continue to have the ability to express their individuality.
We understand that the simplicity of swapping watch bands is one of the main functions users will fall in love with. It will allow them to easily swap from a silicone rubber sports band to a more professional looking metal link band, because everyone knows just how silly you’ll look wearing a neon green watch band giving a super important presentation to your VP.
We’ve been fortunate enough that our designers have been able to build 3D models of the Apple Watch and attachment mechanism. This allowed us to sample 3D printed components which were used in multiple fit-check interactions, fine-tuning our dimensions to where we are today.
We believe our dimensions are close enough, so we've already kicked off the majority of our tooling which has roughly 90% of the dimensions necessary to have full functionality of the easy swap mechanism.
After the Apple Watch is released to the public in April, our engineers estimate that we will need no more than 2 weeks for the final tuning-in process of our tooling and we will be able to start shipping products to your door!
Live for Style
The design team at Monowear started with several classic designs that are subtle yet unique to every lifestyle.
- We have metal link and metal mesh bands for more professional engagements.
- Genuine leather bands for a casual night out, which are ready in multiple colors.
- We are also finalizing quality tests on lightweight water resistant materials meant for your more active occasions.
All of our bands will have 20 and 22mm options. If you’re going to choose the 38mm (smaller) Apple Watch, you will need 20mm bands. If you think the 42mm (larger) Apple Watch is a better fit, you will need 22mm bands. You don’t have to decide now, simply back us, and tell us later.
You can explore each watch band in more detail on or website at: http://www.monoweardesign.com/shop/
You’re going to want more than one, so we’ve made it our priority to find the best possible quality at an affordable cost. Our vendors have been preparing for months, searching for the best materials and optimizing their manufacturing processes. Our products will come at a very reasonable price tag, you’ll be ok with more than one!
We need your help
The team at Monowear has put in so much effort to get to where we are today. The branding and website are ready to go, the product and packaging designs have been realized, and our manufacturing partners are all on standby with tooling in hand. All that’s missing right now is funding for the actual production, and that’s where we need your help.
We love our Kickstarter backers soon much! All our backers will be entered into our daily raffle for a chance of winning a free leather band of any color! We will announce our daily winner on our facebook page and twitter everyday around 9 PM PST. There will be one drawing per day, so that means we will be giving away a total of 30 leather bands!!!
* please understand that you will only be eligible to win the daily raffle once, we need to give all of our awesome Kickstarter backers a chance to win, thank you for your understanding.

Risks and challenges
We have full confidence in our team and manufacturing partner’s ability to start shipping product no more than 2 weeks from the moment Apple Watch is available in retail stores. We have taken all precautions to predict and prevent any potential delays in manufacturing and/or shipping. However if there is a slight delay, we are terribly sorry and apologize in advance. We will make every effort to resolve all issues very quickly, and you will have full visibility as to when you should expect your bands to be on your wrists!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
