RE: Pilot Samples
Dear Kickstarter Supporters,
Back from China and we have the first few working pilot samples in hand. Good news is the new tooling for the larger battery CR2450 and revised PCB doesn't appear to have any hardware issues. We have also been able to maintain close to our original case size targets on width, thickness and case length. (side profile, front profile photos below)
We will have further updates over the next week showing you video of the various final time displays, functionality of World Time app, and the Timer app we added as a request from our Kickstarter supporters.
The factory has plans to build several pilot runs over the next 4-5 weeks working on improving assembly yield and quality on each run, while in parallel they will complete multiple rounds of watch testing and wear testing. After we complete further rounds of testing over next couple weeks and confirm no unforeseen issues with our final hardware and casing we can accurately advise target ship date. We will in weeks ahead be able to show you more photos of all the styles ordered by our supporters.
The end is in sight and we appreciate your continued support and patience, but please know we are working hard to deliver Touch Time to all of our Kickstarter supporters.
