Development Update and a Quick Keychain & App Demo

Hi Kickstarters!

We've been testing the latest firmware and App releases over the last few days and the great news is that most of the cool features are already working well.  

Our COMMAND button is doing its thing (sending notifications on short, medium, and long button presses) and you can already receive notifications from the app for Facebook updates and messages, incoming emails, calls, reminders, alarms, etc.

You can also check-in on Facebook at the touch of a button, find your phone, watch, or keys, drop geolocation pins on the Connected App's map (and annotate them with pictures and text later) and snap pictures remotely.

We are now fine-tuning the user experience (including the text for messages, prompts, etc.) so that you get the best possible user experience when the watch ships in November.

I'll be posting some more videos in the coming days of the app and the keychain working together, and expect more pictures of our latest watch photo-model prototypes.

For the demo video - click here (it didn't upload correctly).

Then it's off to Asia to meet with our suppliers late next week!  I'll be watching the end of the Kickstarter campaign from there.

Watch for updates on Facebook and Twitter as we count down the last 7 days and please join our Thunderclap campaign!

Please tell all your friends to hurry... 

We don't want anybody to miss out and there are only 7 more days to pledge and be the first to get a COOKOO watch!

Thanks,

Peter & the ConnecteDevice team

      @Xavier - our focus initially is on Facebook, but other social networks such as Twitter, Foursquare, etc. will follow shortly thereafter.

      How is the Twitter doing interacting with the watch, Peter? I don't use Facebook but use Foursquare, Twitter and Instagram. I'd like to know how Twitter does.

      @All - sorry - I put "vibration" when I meant to put "beep". The keychain will not feature a vibrator but rather a piezo sounder (beeper). The watch will have both a piezo sounder AND a vibrator and WILL vibrate and beep on button transitions. Sorry for the confusion.

      @Yoon - thanks!
      @All - just a quick note on the video. In the video, the long button press takes a REALLY long time. That's why we shortened it to 6s AND added a vibration on transitions from short button press to medium button press (3s) and medium button press to long button press (6s). That way you know exactly when to let go.

      Great! Can't wait to have this on my wrist!
