1st Funding Goal Achieved - thank you! But wait, there's more...
After just over a week, we have already reached our initial $150k funding goal!
You guys are great - thank you.
I could go on for hours about how much I appreciate the Kickstarter community, but feel the best way to celebrate, is to let you know what this means for you...
Not only will the cookoo watch™ ship to backers this fall, but based-on overwhelming feedback and your requests, we have decided to add a new ($200) pledge level for developers called:
THE BASIC DEVELOPER PACK
This pledge level gives developers one black on black cookoo watch plus a license to develop an app using the Connected Device Profile™ on Android.
We have also added one our of support for developers who pledge at the INDEPENDENT DEVELOPER PACK level and have dropped the price of the DEVELOPER PACK level to $4000 (including 8 hours of individual support).
Here's what you can do with the API:
1) Send commands from your app and trigger the cookoo watch's alerts and icons (e.g. reminder, chat, text, mail, etc.)
2) Receive one of three alert levels from the cookoo watch in your app so that you can trigger an action (e.g. trigger the camera shutter release, drop a pin on a map, etc.)
3) Acknowledge and cancel an alert on your phone from the cookoo watch
This means that you could, for instance, create an app that sends a reminder to the watch when its time to take medicine, or when an ebay deal is closing, or send notifications when somebody has posted to your company's private message board.
The goal with the funds raised through developer pledges is to construct a developer portal and to supporting the developer community.
Pink is the new black
Also - based-on requests (mainly from you ladies), we are adding a new pink edition to our color edition lineup, but at a special price. We call it the "pink is the new black" edition and hope that you like it too.
Help us reach our next funding goal of $500k and add new and exciting features and capability to our Connected App.
p.s. With our first funding goal reached, we are actively seeking worldwide distributors and retailers now. Two (2) pledge levels exists already: retailer pack and distributor pack. They are structured to provide retailers and distributors not only with the cookoo™ watch delivered worldwide, but also with marketing materials and support needed to reach out to consumers.
