      Creator Frances Bugbee on September 12, 2012

      I may be confused but I thought I pledged for a watch with a shirt then upgraded for another shirt which I was going to get in a men's size for my husband? I don't recal a email for color or size? Can you confirm if that's whats my package included?

    6. Screen-capture-3.small

      Creator Sloane Davidson on September 5, 2012

      Is it is possible to upgrade to a different watch if we supported the campaign on Kickstarter?

      Creator Dagmar Ebaugh on August 26, 2012

      Hi all - I got my shirt last week and I **love** the red color and the design but the sizing is waaay off. I received an XL, but it's still super-tiny! (ie - doesn't go all the way down to my hips.) Most size 16s have a 42 or 44 bust and are longer in the torso / wider in the shoulders. I took my shirt for a run and spent most of the run pulling it down over my navel. Is there any way to exchange it for an XXL? Puh-leez? I don't see how I can wear it. Pls let me know if there's a way to get the red in XXL (and I pray that size is longer in torso/wider in shoulders) Thanks!!!

      @Carrianne - what browser are you using? If you are using IE, can you try using Chrome or Firefox? Kickstarter is saying there are issues with IE, specifically IE8 so to try another browser.

      If all else fails, you'll get an email from Sylvia (the one in the orange scarf - crazy woman) to get your survey info.

      Thanks!

      Congratulations! I can't wait to be one of your testers this summer. I'm so excited!!

      I was out of Internet from Friday morning till now and I am absolutely amazed and excited that we hit the mark. I just realized though. If slowly waiting watching the numbers rise day by day, the eight months till I get my watch is going to suck! Can't wait. Good job guys

      I agree with Andrea! As a larger woman it's nice to have a choice other then s,m,l woman's cut - plus size availability is really nice and motivating for us woman who are working on losing weight and improving our fitness :)

      Creator Andrea Herrmann on July 14, 2012

      My one request- stop assuming all the female backers want female cut shirts. Many of us are too tall, too large, etc. to wear female cut. Please don't make men's cut or unisex stuff limited editions, more expensive than female cut, or hard to get. Thanks.

      So glad I got my pledge in. Just found out about this a week ago. Wish I could have gone for the $199 but it wasn't happening this week. Any chance there could be an earlybird opportunity/sale for backers who couldn't swing it right now? ;) Either way - so glad this is funded - I can stop searching for the right watch for me. Just have to be patient until final production!
