      Got mine last March and ordered another one through the web site. Works fabulous. Check out our own KS campaign, now on in full swing.

      Hi Kim and Co

      Any news with my dust on display problem ? Do we have a fix , ?

      Best regards

    3. Daren Han on August 17, 2013

      On a side note, after upgrade the firmware, the version cannot be found under settings->bluetooth->martian watch. I did not find it in the iOS app either.

    4. Daren Han on August 17, 2013

      I managed to update my martian watch on my mac book 10.8.4. The instructions work seamless compared to the windows instructions I struggled with. On my windows laptop, I noticed the driver I installed was detected as a bluetooth device but later was undetected again with yellow exclamation mark which explains why I try several times with my windows laptop, it failed again and again.

      for people who reset everything but failed to connect the watch through bluetooth, just plug the usb cable to macbook / laptop and click the first button on the left, it will show 0000 and it allows u to pair the watch again. These are my findings after playing around with my martian watch.

      Hi Daren. Thank you for sending us an email.
      Andrew - We expect to receive the Martian Victory white/silver/white sometime this week. We will ship as soon as we receive them. Thank you for your patience.

    6. Andrew Egger on August 13, 2013

      Any update on my Victory White/Silver/White?

    7. Daren Han on August 10, 2013

      I have sent u support email.

    8. Daren Han on August 10, 2013

      Hi Martian watches support, I have received my watches. But I am unable to update the firmware of one of them.

    9. Martian Watches 2-time creator on August 9, 2013

      Hi Maxime. I am sorry this has happened to you. I will send you an email so we can discuss in more detail.

      DropForged, I am also sorry you are experiencing this. May I ask you to go to and fill out a support ticket? We can assist you with this issue. Thank you.

    10. DropForged on August 9, 2013

      Hi, my watch won't connect with my phone anymore unless I reset everything everytime I want to connect. Please help me.

    11. Maxime Vandermeersch on August 8, 2013


      I had to pay more than $130 to the belgian post (taxes, fees and penalty for wrong value declaration).

      It's more that the value of one watch. Not very happy about that. So why did you use normal post delivery (instead of a classic delivery company) and why don't you indicate the real value of the marchandise ?
      Now i'm waiting for my watches to leave the customs office ... (couple weeks more to wait)

    12. Martian Watches 2-time creator on August 6, 2013

      Hi Daren. Sorry, your email was sent this morning, as I was waiting for information from Taiwan.
      Eddie - Thank you for the information. I am glad to hear your Martian is working now.

    13. Daren Han on August 6, 2013

      I left a message at your support email as I have not received any email about shipping.

    14. Eddie on August 6, 2013

      All good, it was the iOS default email account stuffing it. It was stuffing up other apps and not sending and receiving emails properly. No idea what happened but all fix now

      thanks for that

    15. Daren Han on August 6, 2013

      Hi support, I have not received any email. My email : darenhan @

    16. Martian Watches 2-time creator on August 5, 2013

      Daren and Dennis - My apologies. I have sent you both emails to discuss your orders.
      Eddie - i am sorry you are having this issue. May I ask you to go to our website and file a support ticket so we can walk you through this issue and get it resolved for you? The website is, and then go to our support page. Thanks!

    17. Daren Han on August 5, 2013

      any updates to my previous question? I have not received email yet.

    18. Eddie on August 5, 2013


      I'm having a small issue with my watch and the way it receives emails. I'm assuming that the watch will initiate email retrieval rather than using the built in PUSH notifications?

      Either way, when a new email arrives and i get notified by my martian watch, the screen displaying the name of the person who sent it. THe issue arises when it ONLY hows the same name no matter who the email is from and to make it even more weird, that email was sent 7 years ago... umm.. why is it doing this? any ideas?

      Hi there, on the 22nd was told me my watches would ship within days... Still nothing received or heard any updates on this. Would love to receive my watches...

    20. Martian Watches 2-time creator on August 1, 2013

      Paul - I am sorry to hear that about your Martian. I will email you so we can discuss. Thank you for letting us know.

      Daren - I will also respond to your email. Thank you.

    21. Daren Han on August 1, 2013

      when can i receive my martian watches? no shipping update via email no tracking number too.

    22. Paul P on July 30, 2013

      Hi Pamela and Vladimk I also have dust on the display panel , I can't shake it out or move it , it is a shame and unfortunately does affect how the watch looks I have the Blk/Blk victory.
      Please advise if there is a fix for this .
      Regards, Paul

    23. Martian Watches 2-time creator on July 25, 2013

      Oh no! Vladimk, I am sorry to hear that. I will email you to discuss what we can do to help with that. I am so sorry that happened.

      I have quit a bit of dust particles and hair amassed under the cover glass of my white Passport. It is very visible over the LED display. How can I get rid of it? Please advise.

    25. Martian Watches 2-time creator on July 25, 2013

      Hi. To check the Martian firmware version, for Android it will show the version when you open the Martian app. For iOS, you go to settings, and scroll down to Martian, tap on it and it will show you the software and firmware version. The tap glass option was fine tuned in the 1.47 version.

    26. W. Basten on July 25, 2013

      Got mine now a couple of days. Brilliant!!!! Audio is remarkable good and battery live excellent.
      Will do the firmware upgrade soon as I am curious about the tap the glass option to repeat messages.

    27. Tom Mayor on July 24, 2013

      Thanks Eddie. Will have a look tonight.

    28. Eddie on July 24, 2013

      @Tom - this is the link to to the update page.. as for latest firmware, it says 1.47, but no idea how to check what the firmware has been loaded on the watch

      @Martian - Yeh, i was referring to other notifications other than the standard/built in apple notifications. And i figured it was an issue of restricted API. No probs, i guess when pigs fly and when hell freezes over maybe then Apple may loosen up their anal retentive bums and be less restrictive. Thanks guys

    29. Tom Mayor on July 24, 2013

      Quick question...what is the latest firmware version? Just want to do a quick check I'm on the latest version and can't find it on the website. Sorry if I'm being blind!



    30. Martian Watches 2-time creator on July 23, 2013

      Hi Eddie, thank you for the comment on the call quality.
      When you say your notifications are not working, do you mean the text notifications or the notifications from the iOS app (email, Facebook, and Twitter)?
      At this point, on the iOS devices, our app supports Facebook, Twitter, Calender event, Reminder, and the email. Whatsapp and other app notifications are not supported at this point because iOS does not allow us to directly communicate with the other apps, unless we have the API. However, on the Android side, any notification works.

      To further resolve your notification problem please email us at, and we can help you from there personally.

      Thanks for asking about Pam, she will be out of the office for a month period.

    31. Eddie on July 23, 2013

      Hey there!

      Just received my watch and have been playing around with it for about an hour. I tested out the speaker phone while on a call, pretty cool and its quite clear. There are some reviews on YouTube saying voice calls are no clear, but i believe that its due to high ambient noise which almost all speaker phones and hardware alike will suffer from.
      I've updated my Martian watch, took me some time to figure out that i didn't have the latest firmware as notifications were not working and im' still not sure how to get emails to pop up.. hmm

      Anywho, my question is it possible to include all types of notifications to popup on the watch, not just SMS's/facebook/twitter/etc? I use Whatsapp very regularly and while it pops up on my iPhone 5, i do not get any notification at all on the watch. Furthermore, is it possible.

      thanks guys

      hmm... wonder where Pam is?

    32. Martian Watches 2-time creator on July 22, 2013

      Hi Dennis and Mal. Your order should be shipped in the next couple of days from our Taiwan office. Mal, I am sorry about the delay in replying to your question. Thank you both for your patience.

      "just been reading all the comments and thought I needed to weigh in also and ask when my 3 watches/extra watchbands and bonus extra watchbands are due to be sent.
      I have not received a shipping tracking number yet."

      Good to see people enjoying their watches. Hopefully my watches will arrive soon as well!

    35. Martian Watches 2-time creator on July 19, 2013

      Joe, we are so glad to hear you received your Martians and are enjoying them!!!!!! Thanks for your patience and compliments. Enjoy!

    36. Martian Watches 2-time creator on July 19, 2013

      Tom - I am sorry that didn't work. May I ask you to file a support ticket on our website and we can work on this problem with you. Thanks!

    37. Tom Mayor on July 19, 2013

      Thanks for getting back to me. It's odd. It seems that reminders set by Siri (through the watch) appear on the watch at the time I ask. But if I create it myself they don't show up. The Facebook and twitter ones haven't worked either. Iv checked all those settings and they are all ok.

    38. Joe on July 18, 2013

      Received my Passport and Victory watches today and all I can say is thank you very much Martian team. They look phenomenal and I can't seem to stop playing with them. Keep up the great work!

    39. Martian Watches 2-time creator on July 18, 2013

      Hi Tom. Sorry you are having this problem. May I ask you to check the following on your phone?
      In settings-bluetooth-Martian Watch: is show notifications toggled to on?
      In settings-notifications: is Martian, calendar, reminders and social media listed in the "In Notifications Center"?
      On the Martian app, is the calendar alert toggled to on?
      If this does not fix the problem, please file a support ticket on our website and we will help you get this resolved.
      Thank you!

    40. Martian Watches 2-time creator on July 18, 2013

      Lewis, I don't quite understand what you mean. Can I ask you to file a support ticket on our website and we will help you get this resolved. Sorry you are experiencing this.

    41. Tom Mayor on July 18, 2013 only took an hour for some one to compliment the watch!

    42. Tom Mayor on July 18, 2013

      I am only receiving text messages despite having reminders, calendar alerts and social media turned on. I'm using the iPhone 5 and not sure why they arnt working

      hi martian,

      it seems to have said it's signed in but has not stopped text messages going through to the phone.
      very strange but now just annoying :-(

      long wait sadly short play has led to disappointment.

      hope we can sort this

    44. Martian Watches 2-time creator on July 16, 2013

      Hi Lewis. We are happy to hear you received your Martian! In regards to the Exchange email, we have made that suggestion to our engineers. Thank you! Enjoy your new Martian!

    46. Martian Watches 2-time creator on July 16, 2013

      Yea!!!! We are happy to hear you are enjoying your new Martian!

    47. Pierre-alain Schaming on July 16, 2013

    48. Thrombar on July 12, 2013

      I will watch for my leather bands/changing tools to arrive. I have now had a chance to try the victory and I love it - it works well - thank you.

      Hi Joe! Thank you for that information!

    50. Joe on July 12, 2013

      Hi everyone,

      This message is mainly for Canadian backers who have not yet received their Martian watch yet. If you have yet to receive your watch and live near a Canadian hub city I highly suggest you check out the following guide to avoid the UPS brokerage fee that UPS will try to charge you when your watch arrives at your door.

      My Martian two Martian watches arrived at my door today and to my surprise UPS was looking for a total of $161 and change for brokerage, duties and taxes. Luckily, I recently read about how to self clear your own package and after following the steps from the website above I paid $29 and change to the CBSA for duties and taxes.

      My watches should be delivered Monday and I couldn't be happier to finally get my hands on these things and to save myself $130.

      Hopefully this can help someone else out. Cheers
