      My omate is stuck at customs, they want a receipt

    5. Creator Stan Sokol on May 10, 2014

      Its too early to jump to conclusions but except for the waterproofing and after applying Loki patches omate is a good product. Yet to experience any glitches or problems. The main problem seems vastly different quality control, another case when good product gets bad reputation for the actual quality. Its still a mystery to me why can't they simply use Loki patches at the factory to reduce the hassle for customers who don't know much about android. The watch itself remind MotoACTV on steroids and even seems to suffer same limitations less than ideal battery life and waterproofing issues. If those issues are fixed omate will be a great hit, even after having it for few days its still amazing having major apps simply working on your wrist due to power of android.

      The camera seems more like a gimmick and in my opinion it could be left in the next editions, due to the fact that shooting anything from the wrist is extremely awkward.

    6. Creator Simon on May 10, 2014

      So after talking to Omate they provided me with a tracking reference for the shipment 1 'Simon' - sure enough it was delivered to a Yorkshire area post code - the tracking system doesnt seem to give the destination address.

      Problem here is I dont live in Yorkshire - so im assume there is another 'simon' who backed the Omate, living in Yorkshire and has their Omate ...

      *sigh* guess i need to change my profile

      That's customs :)

    8. Creator daniel wood on May 10, 2014

      Got mine today so far not tested much but looks nice. Came with extra battery. Sailed though customers no problems. Noticed on the box at the bottom it has the FC also CE so why do some people have trouble getting though customs?

      @iraqigeek I was an early bird backer before upgrading to extreme edition, I was on first list, and my TrueSmart is sitting on my wrist right now....

    12. Creator Luis Gomez on May 10, 2014

      Oh what a surprise: Technical Issue / delay: The TrueSmart are tested one by one before leaving the factory, one of the last batches of battery packs of the 1GB+8GB 2100MHz we received three weeks ago, did not connect well to the main board.

      Omate, it seems you haven't any good luck, every day new problems and new delays, WTF are u playing at, do you think we are all stupid? Stop looking for a guilty for you delays, YOU and only YOU is responsible for this joke, send the damn watches and refund your funders who asked for it, as soon as I get my watch Im gonna sell it I dont want to hear about omate anymore, you are the worse company ever.

    13. Creator Karsten Topp on May 10, 2014

      Dear Omate,
      enough is enough.
      After waiting for too long, it seems to be evident that you will have Omate 2.0 out shortly after you have delivered my "Early Bird".
      Please refund ASAP!

    14. Creator Benjamin Himme on May 10, 2014

      @Lokifish Marz

      Just wanted to say a huge thank you from all of us noobs. We really appreciate the work you are doing. I'm still waiting for my 1Gb/8Gb edition. Is it true that you have given up on the TS? That would be such loss to the TS community. I am very sorry for the way you have been treated at times. When I get the watch I hope I can deploy one of your solutions and certainly plan to make a small contribution for all your efforts. I hope other users who utilise your work will do the same.

    15. Creator Denny The Backer on May 10, 2014

      Im in "Omate TrueSmart DEVELOPERS Edition | First delivery in OCTOBER before anyone else! " October 2013 1GB/8GB/2100Mhz.. Not on the list. 9 MONTHS LATE..

      Latest update:

      Why is not my name on the list No.3? (Proč není moje jméno v seznamu č.3?)

    17. Creator Yi Cong Sim on May 9, 2014

      I am not on the list as well.

    18. Creator MAPASHITO_BCN on May 9, 2014

      @omate Hi, I am not on the third list , so... Will I suposed to be on the "alu" list? Will I be one of the last 100 persons to receive our TS??? Please, clarify.

    19. Creator thg on May 9, 2014

      So finally I upgraded my TS with Lokifish's ROM, until now everything seems to work fine!
      Thanks you for all the work and I very sorry, that you discontinue your work. But it is fully understandable after all :-(

      Anyway I really, really hope, that there will be at least Android 4.3, because for using the TrueSmart as sports tracker, BT 4.0 LE is mandatory.

    20. Creator Paul Friend on May 9, 2014

      @Richard Brenner

      The TS2 is scheduled for September launch. That means backer may have only just got their TS weeks before it is officially the old model.

      Omate development has ceased on the TS.

      This really is a dead parrot.

    21. Creator Lokifish Marz on May 9, 2014

      @Richard Brenner - There's statements to this effect from the powers that be.

      @K.I.T.T. - I have some info but nothing concrete. So going to keep rumors at a minimum by not saying anything.

    22. Creator Quintin Balsdon on May 9, 2014

      I think the fact that they refuse to deal with refunds is pathetic at best

    23. Creator K.I.T.T. on May 9, 2014

      @Lokifish: What do you know about the new TS2 watch, scheduled for september?

    24. Creator Stuart Robinson on May 9, 2014

      @Matt Thompson

    25. Creator Richard Brenner on May 9, 2014

      @Lokifish: is this an official information or why do you think that the truesmart is end of life?

    26. Creator Gareth Davies on May 9, 2014

      Nevermind. Just managed to fix the issue i had. :)

    27. Creator Gareth Davies on May 9, 2014

      One issue i am having is that i cant get my computer to recognise the Sd card in the watch. It will see that there is a drive but says its empty. I'm running windows 8 and have installed the drivers according to Loki's guide on xda but i dont see what i'm missing?

    28. Creator Matt Thompson on May 9, 2014

      @stuart I can't do it on my iPad either. Can you add me on??
      Refund request - no, awaiting a November uk edition 2100 1gb/8gb early bird and I am in the uk.

      @Richard Brenner - It's an end of life product so chances are slim.

      I'm adding you to that now, but which country are you and what version did you back?

    35. Creator Stuart Robinson on May 9, 2014

      Where are you? and which version did you back?

    36. Creator Richard Brenner on May 9, 2014

      Omate, thank you for providing me with the watch. Now that I am having it, I am really happy and hope that you will continue to improve the software, fix all the security issues and keep up to make this device even more awesome. 3G works, my bluetooth headset works, wifi works and fleksy keyboard really works great even in German.

      Great news: only 800 units remaining to ship and all backers will have been served. The last 100 of those even in Aluminum. The DHL is another great move to get the watches faster... Die Hoffnung stirbt immer zuletzt...

    45. Creator Anders Karlsson on May 9, 2014

      Got mine to today. All seems included. Don't know IF i'm going to open the box, have my my tomtom watch now.

    46. Creator Walter Pietzuch on May 9, 2014

      @Omate: Thanks for quick delivery, the decision to go with DHL was right, i was on the 3rd list and received my TS today. Packing was fine too. Known issues so far: The charging craddle has a design issue, the wristband does not allow to go the TS deep enough in the craddle for charging. You need to fix this moving forward. I fixed this for me with a small thin stripe of felt in the cover on the side where the contacts are to increase down pressure when closing the craddle. Now it charges. I will send further feedback soon.

    47. Creator Lokifish Marz on May 9, 2014

      Aeron Chang - So it fixed in the latest production runs. Good to know. Wonder how long it will take to repair all the 1/8 1900 and 512/4 units where this is an issue.

    48. Creator Steph Meslin-Weber on May 9, 2014

      @Simon - a way to check if a name is yours (and there is a matching tracking number from omate) is to track the parcel... I know the Stephane in today's update is definitely not me ;-)
