Before you ask, yes I did back this campaign on Indiegogo. There was quite a slip from a delivery date of November 2013 to August 2014 with the speaker sound quality being one of the major blockers of the project delivery.
Anyway, the smartwatch arrived in the mail on Friday and I was in two minds as to whether I should unbox it or not given the widespread negative coverage. Not just about not the hardware but also the handling of the campaign in general (people who pre-ordered the Kreyos Meteor were getting their smartwatches before those who had actually backed the campaign on Indiegogo as an example).
Upon reflection, I decided to do the unboxing as one of the reasons why I do them is to show each product for what it is and provide my own objective point of view (even if others have already provided their own).
So, here we are 🙂
Bit of an ungraceful unboxing given they way the packaging was put together but we got there in the end.
I also made another video on how to activate the Kreyos Meteor without the app (useful if you have a Windows Phone like myself and are otherwise stranded without the promised Windows Phone app being released). Plus, I have conducted a brief test of the microphone and speaker as well in the below video:
If there are other functions you want me to test out let me know!
