Shipping update

Hey backers,

I just wanted to give you an update on the shipping status because I'm sure some of your are still waiting for the shipping notices (if they've been shipped, you should have received a message from me).

  • All 38mm bands have been shipped out.
  • Almost all silver 42mm bands have been shipped out (except for 4 backers who bought both the grey and silver, as well as a couple more backers of individual units).
  • We've shipped out a number of grey 42mm bands to international backers (excluding US), and are waiting for the balance of the shipment at the end of this week (hopefully they'll arrive this Easter weekend but it'll be tight). We'll ship out to the rest of you as soon as we get them.
  • For US 42mm grey backers, we're STILL waiting for Amazon to load them into our inventory. I'm using them for fulfilment because it's a lot less processing for each shipment. I sent a bulk shipment to them almost 2 weeks ago (for all colours and sizes), and everything but the 42mm grey units have been entered (and subsequently shipped out as soon as they were entered). I'm not sure why these grey ones are taking so long, but they could only explain that it takes them time and it's more or less random. I've been refreshing the inventory page several times an hour, every waking hour, for over a week...so rest assured that I'M very anxious to get these shipped to you as well.

We've had some wonderful feedback from early recipients on how much they love these. Also...a few who've had this tighter fit issue and we'll be sending them the smaller connectors (which we should also be getting in this next shipment).

That's it for now and thanks for you continued patience...we're almost there and I can't wait to fulfil every single pledge here and to hear your feedback.

Have a great day (or night) everyone,

Eugene

      @David Allen: hey David, sorry we've missed all of these important dates for you. I can understand your disappointment as I'd feel the exact same way too! Hopefully you'll love these new bands that are coming soon.

      I've seen 4 units in grey get added into the inventory this morning. It's really odd they can't do them all at once since it was from the same shipment. They're just trickling in slowly.

      I did discover that I can put the shipping orders in despite them showing 0 right now, so they'll pick and pack them as soon as they get entered into the system. Also, despite showing 0, some of these orders are showing an estimated Apr 19th delivery date so I think they do have some idea when they're going to be ready. I'm using a 2-day shipment option.

      My favorite Apple watchband has been another Kickstarter project that I backed over a year ago, the Hyperlink.

      I'm hoping that the Juuk will become another favorite. The silver is for me and the gray was to be a Christmas gift for my son. Then a birthday gift. Now it will just be an any day of the week gift! :-)

      I came here to all the same question as David. Thanks for the great communications.

      I should've been clearer in my update that all 38mm individual pledges were shipped, but the combos haven't if it involves a 42mm grey. Sorry about that.

    8. Eugene Ho Creator on

      Hi David...yes, the 42mm grey is what's holding it up. The 38mm silver is already available in the system and ready to ship.

    9. David Allen on

      My order was for a 38 mm silver and a 42 mm gray, so I'm guessing that combination is why I haven't heard anything yet about my shipment.

      Holy crap...$20 for a handling fee? I've never heard of this before. Is it based on a percentage of the value or just their flat fee? I hope the band exceeds your expectations!

      42mm grey, Denmark: Track & Trace worked flawless, as expected customs here in Denmark taxed the watchband, it was $6 in tax and $20 in handling fee (!!). Now all I'm waiting for is the national Danish mailservice who sadly operate at an all time low regarding delivery times, but I guess it will arrive some time soon. Than you for great service and communication.
