Have a question?
I'm just learning that Bia went out of business!!!!!!
How do I get my money back or the product I was promised??
Got the notice that Bia goes out of business. Well, to me they never started, since I never received my Bia (nor any information when it would be shipped).
Still have not received my Bia from June 2012, although I have had plenty of offers to order more.
Wow, just got a very offensive eMail from Bia. "Back in stock, order now." This is like a slap in my face since I am still waiting for any info on the fulfillment of my $224 pledge from June 2012. I am always amazed that some people have no shame at all.
I just got a pair of Bia here in Singapore.
While i am already on Fenix 2 due to the long wait.
But finally holding the watches in your hands, you realize why you supported these ladies in the first place. The Bias are really impressive to behold. I'll be using it for a test run tomorrow.
Kellie did you just get the email saying if you haven't confirmed your address, you might be in the last group to get the Bia? I was in that group....so I followed the instructions in the latest update.
Approaching 2 years since I paid over $200. Still no Bia. I got a confirmation email and tracking number over 3 weeks ago but it still just says that shipping info has been received - no real tracking info. My first email was answered and I was assured a "Bia would be on my wrist." Since then, radio silence - and still no Bia. Very disappointing. I know backing Kickstarter projects is a risk. I know I have no recourse. I'm very sad that I sent out the link and posted on FB and encouraged everyone I know to back this project.
I backed this project from the start and expected my watch long ago but I have absolutely no idea when you are going to send my Bia to the United Kingdom.
Can you update me please?
Just received mine today. Looks like I'm the first based on the comments. Anxious to give it a whirl. Amazing how small the watch unit is when you separate the gps function. It's hard to get a sense of it in the photos. Looking forward to the added functionality in future firmware updates. One question, is there a site where I can rose a smaller strap? Looks like I have small wrists too.
Long past mid-April - Is there an update coming?
Haven't seen a update since Mar 27, any news yet? Thanks!
All remaining Kickstarter and pre-orders that are on the books today will ship out with the next batch that is slated to arrive at our office in mid-April. We'll keep providing details as we get them.
Sorry if I missed it - but when are the Firefly ones supposed to ship? Thanks!
I never received my watch. Can you advise delivery date?
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?
Is it is possible to upgrade to a different watch if we supported the campaign on Kickstarter?
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.
I'm not sure how to message you through this site, but I am having problems with the survey link etc.
@Magda - on no! We're working on it!
So, I really need the BIA now, my old Garmin Forerunner 305 just died!
This is me now!
Funny that's my moms name not mine. I'm Amanda Parr.
I'm just curious. But my mom received an email requesting her to answer the option selection survey for her shirt and watch color. I never got this type of email.
Talk about kicking it in to the finish. That was so fun to watch! Thanks to Swim Bike Mom for pointing it out to me, to all of my friends that spread the word and supported it, and for all of the wonderful people that backed this.
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

Just in case you didn't get in on our Kickstarter campaign doesn't mean you can't get on the Bia 'Watch' List.

So happy about this. Congrats, and looking forward to getting/using my new watch.
Wooohoooo! So, so happy!!
Congratulations - I knew I should have just backed you with the package to get the watch - cause I'm getting one!!
Congratulations! You ROCK!
This is fantastic news to wake up to! Congratulations to you Cheryl and your partner, and to your scores of fans! Cheryl, call me re a 2012 Olympic runner I know -- you need her on your Bia team!
CONGRATS!!!! Going on a celebratory run, with my gigantic-man-watch, that I'll be happy to chuck soon . . ! Way to go!
So glad Team Tough Chik led me to you!
Congrats on making the goal! Can't wait to get mine and see the awesome-ness of this product in person!
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 :)
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.
Yes! I've been checking on this and was getting nervous. I posted the link to all my running groups, and on Daily Mile. Can't wait to get my Bia!
Congratulations on achieving your goal! Thanks DC Rainmaker for bringing attention to this project first, and then Swim Bike Mom for pushing passionately (and relentlessly!) for support. :)
Congratulations ladies!!! So happy that this goal has been met - what an amazing sprint to the finish! Can't wait to see more excitement over this product when it comes out in the spring!
Why, I guess triathletes DO kick! :)
So happy for you both and very excited about this easy to see and operate watch, and smaller too!
Thanks to Kelly D & Swim Bike Mom for pointing out this project - looks like a great idea, and I am happy to be able to have backed it. :) So glad you reached your goal!
AMAZING! you guys are gods!
So proud that your goal has been met!! Hopefully my additional backing helped a little! Can't wait to receive my Bia!
I'm glad I found this project! So excited!
Woo hoo! Congratulations Sylvia & Cheryl! So proud to be part of this amazing group of supporters...and look forward to seeing Bia Sport fly!
BIA WILL BE!!! http://www.the-purple-giraffe.com/2012/07/bia-will-be.html
