Have a question?
Do you guys remember when LVL used to tell us they were writing an update and would then write it a month to late and it'd be all fluff and no substance?
I miss those, they were fun.
I agree totally with @Grant!! I was stoked for this and knew how/when I was going to use this. Now I'm done, if/when it ever delivers this'll go into a drawer. I might use it for a week but with the Aura band providing more information and actually UPDATING their backers (also they respond promptly to personal messages) I'm not holding my breath on this.
It's hard to explain how excited I was for the LVL sports band when I heard it was a thing, I promptly signed up for my first Kickstarter. Since then I have found myself quite disappointed in the lack of transparency that BSX had provided. I realize that it takes time to make updates, but your simply couldn't hire someone at minimum wage with your 1 million dollars from your campaign? My faith in the project was renewed when Wayne posted how apology, but since then he has refused to deliver on the promise he made. I am not even going to try for a refund, instead I am looking into a company that allows refund request till the project is delivered such as the AURA band. I hope you find a better business to be in Wayne, that allows for the mistakes and the shortcoming to go unnoticed, unfortunately you have tarnished your companies name with 7500+ people. It's not too late to change, although for some reason I doubt you will.
Yo @team BSX, y'all logged in today! What to check all your PISSED OFF backers or to potentially provide a useless update. We deserve a decent update with timelines! This is getting really ridiculous. I'm currently backing several other technology based campaigns, most are just as complex if not more so than yours. Those campaigns are providing monthly if not weekly updates. So do your backers, the ones who provided you WAY behind the initial required funding, and provide a decent update. We want our questions answered and in a very legit and frank way. I'll be posting every other day this request until we get something decent.
By the way your last update was 58 days ago. Get on the ball!!!
i want a refund. BSX should be sued. They lied about everything.
Bsx needs to get sued and go bankrupt
They've not even logged in since February 14th. Took the money and ran it seems. They've not even updated their main webpage with information regarding LVL. Way to go team BSX.
Please refund my money.
Was I left out of the updates? I'm reading that LVL is going out of business from some of the other backers on this post. Can you confirm if LVL is still in business and if not how do we get our money back?
I want my refund, you should be ashamed of yourselves scammed 1 million dollars.
Hey Wayne! You suck!
I want my money back! Refund, please.
The rules clearly have not been followed.
And how do you contact Lvl?..:-(
@patrick Wait...what!? They emailed you saying they are going out of buisiness?!
@wayne and team BSX, it's been 5 days since @wayne sent me an email about a pending update. So what's the deal?? Are y'all actually gong to be getting this product made at all?? Please update your backers who provided y'all the means to "bring this product to market". That is if it's still your goal to do so.
Kickstarter is full of shit like this scam
Just assume it's never
Is there any news on possible shipment date
So ya I went ahead and backed the Aura band. They actually seem to have their shit together. I'll laugh heartily if they reliever before lvl does. Sadly I've already relegated this to a drawer when/if this ever ships.
Really hoping karma catches up to Dustin, Wayne and the rest of the LVL team who scammed their backers.
Maybe you can learn from them https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1559547824/aura-band-know-your-body-composition-and-hydration
Kickstarter implemented the new rules after the Kickstarter, and quietly. They did so without addressing any old Kickstarters that fell into limbo.
Unbelievable Kickstarter isnt stepping in. Bsx massively broke their rules with not having a working prototype.
Or wiped my bum with it better use
I should have just got 150 usd and used it to light my bbq
And a week has passed since @wayne promised update. @wayne you should really stop embarassing yourself and start learning the value of time. Soon is crap you need to provide a due date otherwise anything you promise is basically thin air as anything that involved lvl so far
LVL is full of shit! Shame Shame shame
@wayne....your full of shit... You don't care about our input because if you did, then many of us would have been refunded already. Also, could you please reply to this person's message :

I purchased this lvl watch for my wife for her birthday. I missed out on the Kickstarter but paid direct for it on the bsx website. I believe that I have been a victim of fraud and theft. I paid $150. for this watch and have written plenty of emails and left voice messages for bad with no response. Now, just today I received an email from them stating that they are going out of buisiness or something so it looks like they are walking away with over a million dollars in other people’s money with no recourse. Time for justice to be served.
See update 02-08-2017:
The most appropriate place to begin is with an apology. I'm sorry. I write to you this afternoon not as the LVL team, hiding behind an amorphous entity without name or face, but as CEO, founder, a person and father, and a man who is deeply passionate about the work that we are engaged in.
When our team started the Kickstarter campaign, we pledged transparency and regular updates. Something you each deserve. Something we have failed to deliver on. Why you may ask? Honestly, it's because you deserved regular updates of substance, not salesmanship; full details, not fluff.
Do I need to say more?
What a loosers!
I WOULD LIKE A REFUND FOR THIS PROJECT. I did not expect to wait so long for this product and I no longer need it.
PLEASE REFUND ME MY MONEY.
Apparently you do, as you're back whining again, Jerkamie.
Water input is gesture based off raising your hand so who gives a f about LVL anymore
Take anything they say with a grain of salt. Just like when they were pre-selling the device in July 2017 advertising a August 2017 ship date, until of course August 2017 rolled around and they changed the ship date to sometime in 2018.
Not you silly, the LVL team
On Feb last year they were on track as well...and no plan with intermidiate milestones have been shared so wayne can say anything he wants...but until a proper timeline is set and which kind of accountability is put in place anything bsx says is bs
@jerkamie what'd I do??
Shame on you
Got this from @wayne the other day. So based on this response from @wayne this supposedly means they may be on track for summer shipping. But that means nothing as summer lasts from June through August. It's not looking good.
Thanks for writing to me. Our team has let me know that they have an update coming. They will likely share a backers only update this week. They have not changed the summer shipping estimated date so that is what they are looking at!

Some updated DCrainmaker comment on bsx
@wayne and team BSX, I'm backing multiple things and most have run into a snafu. In fact I've only had one campaign that delivered in time. Although all but 8 of my backed campaigns have provided very up to date information. In fact I have one where the creator reads through ALL the comments and updates the backers exact question. Y'all still have yet to answer any questions that any backers have had in the last two months. With one exception, you rattled out the same dribble about how all raised funds went to the development of the LVL. Then what was the cash influx from Samsung for? Are y'all ever gonna address the dcrainmaker article? Are y'all still in any feasible type of a timeline for a summer launch? Also what's a summer launch? Is that June or August?? Update your backers with decent information on progress and we wouldn't be so horribly upset.
This is rediculus. It's been almost 2 months without an update. Is anyone in your company actually planning on delivering a product?
Against bsx/lvl, maybe, if you have grounds to prove fraud.
Where do us backers stand contractually with this project? Do we have grounds to pursue legal proceedings against BSX &/or Kickstarter?
BSX Insights just sent an email out sunsetting their former project. The signs are not good.
Along with some pics (hopefully of something barely resembling the advertised product) and some video showing the thing works somehow, will you bother replying to Dcrainmaker article? You ignoring its points is not proof that you are either right or credible at all
Hello Kickstarter backers!
I just got news that our team will have a new update to share with you soon including some exciting new pics. Look forward to hearing your feedback after the post is up.
It looks like my comment from a few days ago was deleted. I WOULD LIKE A REFUND FOR THIS PROJECT. I did not expect to wait so long for this product and I no longer need it.
