      Donald is a rat,at least i got mine.I wore it once.
      it sucks,
      the battery sticks out 4mm out the back so it doesn't sit on your wrist

    2. Tim on January 28, 2016

      I'm pretty sure the battery can be replaced with any " CR2450 " 3-volt battery, if the same was used for each, anyway. The instructions are relatively simple (at least after a few attempts..) to replace the battery yourself, and can get them on amazon or anywhere (I think) and probably most places that fix jewelry/watches would be able to replace it for you. Hadn't realized the downfall that had occurred with the company or whatever. I got my watch on time, no pun intended, and it worked fine for me, for years, albeit only wore it occasionally due to it being a bit too bulky for continued comfort. Wish it had all turned out better.. especially for the people who I guess didn't get theirs.. sadly it's not a guaranteed source of stuff on Kickstarter, since it is for helping to kick-start companies and/or projects and/or ideas.. not always a success, not always legitimate. Maybe that will improve in time. Either way, I hope this comment at least helps someone needing a new battery, as I'm about to get some to use my watch again. (please feel free to correct me if I used incorrect battery info/etc. I'm no expert.)

      My battery died. Where do I get it replaced? Meaa55@sbcglobal.net

      This watch design was flawed. I received mine and the battery died within a few weeks. A watchmaker took a look at the watch and managed to "jump start" it. The electronics apparently had some flaw in them. So glad the arrogant Donald has failed. Needless to say, I donated the watch. Nothing more than junk, just like the proprietor of Phosphor.

      Oh wow, just randomly checked this and noticed people haven't got theirs yet. Lets just say, you aren't missing out on anything! It's just massive and terrible... I got mine a long time ago, actually wore it once and threw it in the drawer.

      @Ian,
      Watches have been sent out indeed, but apparently not to everyone.
      Feedback and response have always been notorious bad. I'm afraid that you should consider your watch as lost. But hey, believe me, you didn't miss a lot. I've worn mine a few months, but decided to drop it, because it was quite clumsy in operation. Modern smart watches offer so much more - and you never have to replace their batteries!

    8. Ian Kumlien on November 11, 2015

      What happened? I didn't receive my watch - and no feedback or anything - no responses to messages?

      I thought it was successful and did send out watches?

      @lumar, my watch did almost exactly 1 year (one week over i think)

      So, what has happened to phosphor? Did they go bankrupt or something?

    10. Dmitry Lvovich on September 30, 2015

      It was the good idea. But they were late. The results were not answerable to our hopes.

    11. Dmitry Lvovich on September 30, 2015

      It were failed investments, unfortunately...

    12. Etienne on September 12, 2015

      Maybe it is time to sue now for everyone who didn't receive their watch now, there's precedent:

      Hello, What happened??

      I have not got my watch yet??? Pls reply urgently

    14. lumar on July 14, 2015

      Update: second run with a fresh new battery. Hardly using the backlight or touch screen, occasionally checking the calendar thats all. The battery died again after 6 months and 10 days, falling short of design specifications. Anybody got close to the "one year battery life"?

      @andi,

      Battery is good for one year - unless you just got it - that's probably all that it is.

      Both of mine lasted around 13 months but that's about it.

      Gave mine away. The experience with this project unfortunately, left a real salty taste in my mouth. Many individuals, myself included, went along for the ride because of the incorrect press releases that were out circulating this project. It was erroneously reported as being an e-ink watch. No one at Phosphor, corrected this but certainly capitalized on it. Turns out it was a crummy LCD. I received mine but gave it away instantaneously. It never sat on my wrist, ever. I couldn't. Not because it was a bad product, per say but simply because I wouldn't want to wear it and promote something created by an egotistical a-hole. Good bye, Donald. I hope a someone launches a class action suit against you.

      Kevin on March 4, 2015

      Fortunately for me, I did received my watch. But that's after much trouble. They got my address wrong and the parcel got sent back. Upon multiple emails to the company, they finally accepted that it was their fault and send the parcel again, all these without a slightest bit of apology. The watch was clunky and laggy. I guess a lot of people bought into the hype just like I did. I really have no idea which designer would've approved this design. To me this is huge irresponsibility from the designer. As for Donald and phosphor, understand that there bound to have hiccups along the way, but the way they handled the project with lack of updates is a major disappointment. There is absolutely no excuses for that. For the unfortunate ones who did not receive their watches, I guess it's a painful lesson learnt; that talk is cheap. Hopefully we all learn to do more research before pledging the next time. Cheers

      Hi Phosphor

      It has been many months, but no watch received.
      Can you please look into this?
      I really want this watch =(

    35. Alessandro Saiko on February 11, 2015

      Guys, just knock it off. I did. This kind of a HUGE scumbag called Donald scammed a lot of us. Didn't received mine and I'm sure I never ever will. Next month I'm getting a Sony Smartband Talk SWR30 for my Xperia. Case closed.

      Last year they contact me to pay extra for international shipping. I did it and they reply while they asked for money, after all they received the money and they never reply any more. Even report to Kickstarter they don`t take single action. This is the way they treat backer.

      Well looks like some still didn't get their watches. I did granted I sold mine before I got it. It does look great on my friend's wrist and the battery seems to be still going strong. I saw him over the Christmas holidays.

      I got a Samsung Gear Neo 2 for Christmas. It's pretty neat.

    42. Moose Man on January 1, 2015

      Ian,

      TheKS agreement that you acknowledged when becoming a member advises they aren't responsible.

      They are as much a sham as this project nearly turned out to be.

      That said call the number I posted a few days ago and talk to Phosphor support. They should be able to provide further direction.

      I actually got a refund in May because they couldn't make the gold watch as I pledged for so you should get some satisfaction albeit it may be a watch.

      Arme Bert,

      Al die moeite, al dat wachten. En wat krijg je uiteindelijk? De TouchTime.
      Ik heb hem een paar weken omgehad, maar het bleek een onhandig ding. Het scherm reageert erg stug, waardoor je bepaald niet voor je plezier een alarm instelt of de kalender raadpleegt. De ingebouwde rekenmachine (waarvoor ik notabene zelf nog heb gepleit!) is van een onhandigheid die bijna komisch aandoet. Wat mij betreft is de TT al maanden voltooid verleden tijd, wat natuurlijk niet wegneemt dat je er een had moeten krijgen. Succes!

      You sold me a watch i never received.
      According to you it is since more than a year with the dutch customs.
      But they never received anything.
      You also never ever again responded to my messages.
      So you leave my no choice. I give you untill Friday 27th december 2014 to give me a solution. If you refuse to respond, i will file a fraud complain the dutch Policestation.

      Hi Donald/Phosphor

      I Pledged for Touch Time watch on Kickstarter.
      My Pledge: Pledge $99 or more
      "The Touch Time watch with stainless steel case and black silicone strap is expected to be the most popular and will retail for $159, but Kickstarter backers get the stainless steel case black silicone version now for just $99. Free US shipping included, add $25 to ship internationally."

      I have added additional $25 to ship internationally
      And added $30 for two more silicon straps ($15 for each strap: 1 white strap and 1 orange strap).

      I was refunded $30 through PayPal with the following message (May 13, 2014).
      Note from Art Technology Limited:
      Your watch has shipped but we didn't have extra straps available so have provided refund for that amount. Donald

      Sadly, it is already Sept2014 and I have not received my Touch Time yet.
      I emailed multiple times but my emails aren't getting through.
      I hope you can help me on this as I really want the watch. My kickstarter name: Janardan Nathan (janardan_rulz@hotmail.com).

      Thank you!
      Warmest Regards
      Janardan Nathan
