      It was never E-ink. It was always LCD but some of the news feeds simply got it wrong.

      Yup. I could have sworn this was originally touted as an e-ink watch. They probably couldn't get all the functionality out of it and quietly dropped the idea and changed all info on the kickstarter page. LCD is garbage.

      Just got my watch in UK after a month in transit. I am pleased with the watch overall. It is very chunky as others have mentioned but this doesn't bother me. I do have a use for the countdown timer and I am glad it was included.

      From my point of view, the Phosphor engineering team have delivered a good product for my purposes - a nice looking digital watch with features I need. The Phosphor customer relations team needs a kick up the backside. They are awful and smiley emoticons are not a substitute for information and delivery. I regret backing the KS project and if I could do it again, I would buy the finished product off ebay. Like the product, hate the communication and delivery.

      @dougEzero wow... that's unreal... so the postman could've possibly taken it?? I mean what's going on? My package arrived in a bulky yellow parcel bag with USPS first class Xpress sticker on top. The only way for your item to be gone is one of the employees recognized Phosphor name and took it. It may not be Donald's fault but certainly not yours either. He needs to sort things out with you but obviously, there won't be any communication regarding your loss.

      As for lost watch faces... Don't complain to Donald. He can't fix it now and he won't say anything about it. Just use your watch as everyday analog fashion watch and don't use anything else.

      As for the shipping, I thought the order he sent out was based on how early you pledged? But seeing who got the product, I have a feeling there isn't really order which goes out first. I pray you all will have closure in near future.

      Well perhaps Donald should learn how to use the countdown timer to remind him to post the "global update" that he promised for last week.

      Oh, wait the watch also as a reminder function for that.

      Dear Donald

      You assured me that you would replace my defective watch a month ago. Repeated communication to you to work out the return/replacement has not worked out due to your lack of response.

      Here is something for you to consider..

      You send me a new watch which is not defective FIRST, and then I will return the defective one at my cost.

      Trust issues?

      Well I trusted you with my money for almost 2 years. Let's see if you can trust me, with yours.for a week. You know where I live too!

      Also in Ontario, Canada. No Watch, No information. No contact.

      I actually revisited this page to see if there was any avenue for a refund. This was not an upstart learning the ropes of production. This company has been around and promising e-ink watches since December 2007. The Kickstarter Terms of Use (https://www.kickstarter.com/terms-of-use) clearly state that Project Creators are required to fulfill all rewards of their successful fundraising campaigns or refund any Backer whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill. This project was successfully funded (https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/…) 563 days ago. I opt for a refund.

      We have shipped majority of watches as promised by end of March in our last update. We are sending balance in weeks ahead so if you haven't received tracking code you will. There are some delays in getting all watches out by end of March since as Alex has indicated there are many different SKUs and we do production in batches. We are also dealing with alot of people that didn't pay their international shipping fees and following up with them. Appreciate your patience and will have global update later this week.

      Update: After about a month in transit, the postman attempted to deliver the watch today, but the package was already opened and the watch was gone. Because of that, I've refused delivery. Still haven't received any responses from Donald, or support@phosphorwatches.com for that matter, regarding my previous messages. What's up with the lack of communication? By far, this has been my worst Kickstarter experience ever.

      PS. With regards to e ink, I Googled e ink watches back when the original concept was launched for funding as i was looking for one and it gave me the link to this project so I guess somewhere along the line it was originally touted as one. I assumed it was...

      Creator Andy King 5 days ago

      Well here in the UK I was informed back in late February that the 'watches would be shipping any day now' and that I would get an email to say it was shipped, tracking info etc and of course, like others, as of today, nothing, no email, no watch!
      Most disappointing is to read comments about custom charges. Ok, they have to be paid but I don't recall any mention of this in the original pitch for backers, and to be honest after all this time the last you'd expect is for them to pay this as a mark of decency after so many months of radio silence and refusing to respond to countless comments and emails from backers. Leaves a nasty taste...

      Finally! Finally! Finally! My nightmare is truly over, just received my watches yesterday, the sneaky postman almost got away with leaving me a notice but i ran him down before he got back into his truck, lol Well i have to say i love the watch, not every complainant is fare,don't know why some ppl say its heavy, my Zodiac is twice the weight, the rubber strap is nice and soft, i got the orange one, and its not a dust magnet, the only thing that bugged me right off the bat is the contrast between the gray and black on the watch face, it's a bit darker then i was expecting, on the small text it's hard to see if the room is not well lit,
      Well I'm happy i finally got it on my wrist,and both watches are non defective, so fare, the biggest negative i would have to say as many of you would probably feel the same is the lack of communication from Donald, I glad this has finally ended and i will never support another Kickstarter again, i hope all the best to everyone that still haven't got there watches, ill come by once and awhile to see how things are going, but this is all from me, everyone take care, its been along (almost 2 years) ;)

      Another touch down in UK yesterday of the stainless steel version with black silicone strap. Posted on 5th April arrived 14th with £19.90 (approx $US33) customs to pay.
      First tip is to hunt for the instruction booklet in the roof of the box hidden away in a little pocket.

      My initial views are this is a good watch. It feels well made, is a moderate weight tipping the scales at 88 grams. The display is clear and the backlight is quite adequate for viewing in the dark. I too endorse the views of many others that the sacrifice of the two flip clock faces was regrettable as it leaves the watch without a decent sized date display. If there's a TT2 we'd like these back please even if it's at the expense of the smallest digital display or the countdown timer. Having said that it's OK and to Donald:- many thanks for seeing this through but communication hasn't been your strongest point !

      TOUCH down in Germany.
      Tracking started 1. April and i picked it up yesterday at the customs - and i love it. (The bad thing: my wife loves it too - should also have backed two of them... )

      About the watch: i agree with Donny, except the height-problem. It dosn't bother me and i don't think that a battery with lower capictity would siginificant lower the height of the case.

      @Kiran I also mistakenly remember reading that it was an eink watch. Eink can be touch sensitive (just look at most ebook reader today like the Kobo touch for example). I was disappointed in finding out that it was just a low contrast LCD watch. Maybe it is because the fake contrast-enhanced pictures or the “always on” specification (wow, an LCD that is always on)…

      I cannot find any press release from Phosphor stating that the Touch Time was supposed to use eink. However I think that the eink specification did leek somehow because many reporters and hi tech journalists also mistakenly thought it was an eink watch. I read those before deciding to back this project.

      My two watches arrived today, in Canada, without notice of shipping or tracking number. Both seem to be working perfectly and they even got the colours right (I requested different silicone bands after the initial survey). The 50$ customs fee threw me for a loop but I understand it's not phosphor at the border.

      While I was severely irritated with Phosphor for all of the delays and lack of updates they created a pretty good product. The silicone band is really comfortable and soft. I was worried it would tug at the skin or be a little sticky but its not at all. The casing, while bulky, is very aesthetically pleasing. It looks great and the screen is also very good. The contrast in the screen is perfect. As a whole its a slightly heavy watch but in a good way. It feels like a solid, well built product.

      As for improvements if there was to be a Touch Time 2 there are a few things that I would personally like to see before investing in another Phosphor product. Firstly the actual watch part (ignore the straps) is quite thick. Its about 20-30% thicker than my iPhone. It doesn't make the watch uncomfortable it's just not as slim as i'd like it to look and it does catch on long sleeves. A few of the apps I don't consider to be useful on the small watch platform. The lunar calendar, the calculator and the reminder app could be swapped out for 10-15 extra watch faces. I will probably never use the timer feature but it does make sense to have it on a watch. The backlight works perfectly. It does what it's intended to do. It lights up the watch face in order to read the time in a dark room. It's not there to turn your watch into a flashlight light we do with our smartphones.

      To summarize, the "apps" need to be streamlined to open up space for more watch faces. The body of the watch made thinner. I'd even prefer a watch that needs to have the battery replaced every 6 months if it could be about 30% thinner. Overall I'm happy with the product I got and glad I won't have to check back here every few days for updates. I hope the rest of you get your watches soon.

      Woah woah woaaah!! Just received this.There was a comment earlier on here stating that this was is NOT an e-ink watch and I could have sworn it was when I backed it. I have this thing in front of me and it is quite clear it isn't an E-ink watch. If you look everywhere, on the original Kickstarter description it says LCD with LED back lighting. Am I the only one that vividly remembers this originally being marketed as an e-ink watch on Kickstarter?
