The Pebble Time Kickstarter project broke Kickstarter record for the most funded project. It raised US$20,338,986 from 78,471 backers and the project was officially funded on 28th March 2015.
The iMacwear M7 is not an Android Wear device but rather an Android Watch itself because it runs on a full Android 4.4 (KitKat).
Bought the Apple Watch 42mm Milanese Loop strap for S$218 from Apple Online Store (Singapore) because the 42mm Milanese Loop is sold out at all authorised Apple Resellers.
Placed my order last Thursday, 2nd July 2015 and I received it this Tuesday, 7th July 2015, despite it saying it ships within 5-7 business days.
The 42mm Sport Band is retailing for £39 (S$83) in the UK before tax refund. In Singapore, it is retailing for S$78.
Buying The Apple Watch
I was supposed to go to the media launch of the Apple Watch at nubox (Raffles City) if they can reserve a set for me. Because if I went for the event, I would not be able to queue if the queue is short. Unfortunately, they didn’t get back to me till I was in the queue, so I ended up forgoing the media event and joined the queue because it was rather short (I was 36th in line at 8.15am; launch is at 9am). I was intending to buy it online anyway if the queue is long.
The queue was deceiving, it takes about 90 minutes after the official launch timing (9am) to clear 36 people in the queue (I went in about 10.30am). The queue was moving way too slow because they only allowed 2 people into the store at a time (maybe because of Apple’s policy?).
Apple will officially launch the Apple Watch in Singapore alongside six other countries (Italy, Mexico, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland and Taiwan) on Friday, 26th June 2015.
The Fitbit Charge is not meant to be the successor of the Fitbit Flex. When it comes to physical appearance, Fitbit Flex is smaller and doesn’t have a display whereas Fitbit Charge is two times bigger and offer a OLED display. Both serve different target audiences and that is the reason why Fitbit Flex is still on sale.
