It's been nearly a month now since we launched Smartwatch Fans and things are starting to pick up. We've finally worked out all the kinks, tweaked up the design and things are rolling smoothly. Our forums are buzzing now with over 7k members and growing! I had a blast at CES this year checking out more smartwatches than I could handle, but now things have settled down and I'm getting back into a good groove.
There's no shortage of smartwatch news (which is a good thing) so we certainly won't be slowing down anytime soon. There are still plenty of projects that haven't shipped yet, some due to hit backers very soon and others that are just ramping up. It seems like everywhere I look I see more and more devices — which is awesome.
We had some bad news this week as the Kreyos, Omate TrueSmart and HOT watches are putting up minor delays. Not a huge deal as that's what happens with projects like these, but still a drag for those that were expecting to get their hands on devices soon. What's good is that the Pebble Steel pre-orders are set to start shipping tomorrow which I'm definitely looking forward to.
I think a big part for me now is waiting on these new devices. We seen plenty on the current watches that are already available, so I'm pumped to dive head first into these new devices when we finally get our hands on them. Hopefully it won't be too much longer before we can do just that, so fingers crossed that there are no more hiccups from here.
Again, if there is anything in particular you want to see come out of Smartwatch Fans, please let me know. We're nothing without the readers so we always want to make sure we're giving you what you want. No matter what we'll stay committed to bringing the most in-depth coverage we can about all the hottest watches, but if there is one you want to see that may not be on our radar, definitely let us know.
So with that I wish you all a happy week. Almost one full month in the books and plenty more to come!
