      Thank you for the update. No worries, we know you are working hard. I'd rather have a delightful product than have you rush to market with bugs.

    3. Joshua Freckleton on April 15

      You guys seem uniquely committed to the end quality, and after I've enjoyed owning mine for a while, that'll be all I remember, so thanks for keeping us informed!

      Thanks for keeping us posted on progress and problems

      Status updates? :)

    6. Amanda Moriarty on April 13

      I think most people are eagerly awaiting an update^_^ I know I am!

    7. Roos on April 13

      I see that a lot of people already asked, but is the arrival of July still on?
      Together with my family we will start a cycling trip of 2500km for 5 weeks on the 15th of July and it would be great to take the LVL on this ride!

    8. Adam Leszko on April 13

      sorry if already asked: I see info in device dimensions says 17mmx45mm. But what about the depth? How thick is it? From one of Your updates (looking at proportions) it looks like 12-15mm range, is my assumption correct? In all wearables, this is the most important dimension for me, as it's defining the comfort of wearing the device the most in my opinion

      Any update on this?

      Thanks and regards.

      1. Can use LVL while swimming or wet situation from pouring rain?
      2. How about the changing battery in case of battery deterioration? or throw it away?
      thanks

      @kyley thats such a cool idea and like Vibrate once if its dropped vibrate twice if its risen so you can tell the diffrence - i havent seen this in a tracker before and think it would be amazing if they somehow included this!

      I literally cannot wait for this device to arrive. I've been obsessed with hydration since I was a first year medical student. As long as hydration is optimal for my patients then I'm happy. Can't say the same about my own hydration as I often forget to drink and end up chugging 3 litres in the evening. Doesn't help my gym performance. I'd love to see a hydration reminder buzz. Also a lot of wrist heart rate monitors don't really match up to chest bands and actual heart rate monitors. I'm intrigued to see the accuracy of this device both at rest and during intense exercise.

      I really can't wait.

      How do you figure, it's still late March for the western hemisphere, and they said in their last comment, 13 days ago, that the next update would be early April (I'm going to assume that means first week to first 10 days of April)

      Kyley on March 24

      I think you guys should add a way for the device to help maintain a certain great rate. I.E. if I need to keep my heart rate between 125 and 135, have the device vibrate or something if my heart rate goes above or below that.

      I use an AliveCor Mobile ECG and now I'm wondering if the LVL will have to be removed to take a reading. I won't mind removing it, just need to know so I don't screw up my readings. Thanks all, keep up the good work. Not too worried about time line here. We want your best and the best takes time.

      Regarding timeline, we don't have any additional updates to report besides what we discussed in the update last week. There's a lot of moving parts; while we've encountered challenges in some areas, we're ahead of schedule in others. We'll pass on anything affirmative in our next update in early April.

      We have not authored any studies internally regarding selection of optimal fluids for rehydration but we've learned an immense amount from the work of Dr. Stacy Sims.

      Stacy is an Environmental Exercise Physiologist and Nutrition Scientist who specializes in cooling and heat adaptation strategies and hydration practices.

      We are keeping up with Garmin developments! The challenges we discussed with the two-processor LVL circuit board is unrelated to the decision to support ANT+ though.

      Hi creator if this gadget measures blood glucose levels.. Then many of my friends will need it.. Awesome project.. Thank u guys

      I am curious/have you done any tests-studies on, when LVL is giving you a 'how hydrated are you' measurement back, what is the most efficient way to get your hydration back?

      For examples:
      -Drink water
      -Have food such as oranges/mangoes/watermelon
      -Drink water mixed with some kind of electrolyte powder
      -Drink coconut milk
      -Drink some kind of sports energy drinks, such as gatorade

      I am sure others will be interested in the results.

    37. Adam Leszko on March 13

      Just wondering about the duality of the chip (ANT+/BTLE) - which btw I voted for myself!! Now, it seems Garmin will open their devices to BTLE sensors starting with F5 so such duality is (well 'will be' to be precise) no longer needed. This, combined with limited chip selection due to requested duality mentioned by creators, is kind of a bummer. If it was today, I would definitely vote some other stretch goal :-/
      Anyway, still excited about this device...

      We are not in a position to fulfill any refund requests. As many of you understand, we've devoted backers' pledges directly towards production and delivery of rewards. The early commitment by backers to support LVL is the only reason we are able to offer such steep discounts. Please privately message us with any questions or concerns.

      @creator -I would greatly appreciate being informed if you ever proceed with developing a optical sensors device to calculate blood glucose.

      As one battling with Type 2 diabetes words cannot be spoken of my appreciation.

    48. BSX Athletics Creator on March 2

      We're working on an update. To clarify the blood glucose topic…

      Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) as a technological architecture is capable of measuring blood glucose if specific wavelengths and corresponding photodiodes are employed as part of the optical sensor package. Choosing the correct wavelength for the desired biometric heightens the signal to noise ratio.

      LVL's optical sensor package utilizes wavelengths and photodiodes which are optimized for the metrics that we are focused on: hydration, heart rate, sleep and activity.

      Daneo van Overloop on March 2

      If it is capable of estimating blood glucose levels, can we get that data out of it?
      I'm currently using a FGM, but this would be a huge improvement in life quality.

    50. Duane Gran on March 2

      Also curious to get an update on this project.
