iBeat Company and Product Update – June 2017

 

Our engineering team recently traveled abroad to meet with product manufacturing candidates, and we are pleased to share, we have officially selected a firm we feel is best-in-class in getting the iBeat watch from our factory and onto your wrists!

Our team refuses to deliver anything short of excellence, and we are dedicated to making the iBeat watch comfortable, functional, and reliable. We have rigid product specifications and are taking all the necessary steps to make sure this product not only meets expectations, but exceeds them. To ensure this, we have begun the early stages of user and clinical testing and are happy to report this testing has been successful. We plan to continue this rigid testing in the coming months to further validate our watch sensors and the technology.

The company has also been participating in a variety of health and wellness events, including AARP’s Innovation @50+ event and more recently, Plug & Play Ventures’ Health and Wellness Summit. The feedback on our first batch of our watches has been spectacular! We are suckers for comfort though, and are planning to refine the current watch band and clasp to ensure a snug, and even more comfortable fit.

Quick update on shipping – Based on our current clinical testing schedule and recent discussions with our manufacturing partner, we are now expecting shipping to take place in early 2018 (likely early March) for those who pre-ordered on Indiegogo. We will ship on a first come, first served basis for anyone who has pre-ordered from our website.

We understand this is not in line with the original planned shipping date, and we apologize for that. Building a watch that can save lives is no easy feat, and it is not something we take lightly. We are doing everything in our power to make this watch everything we’ve promised it to be, and perfection takes time!

In the meantime, we are working diligently with our manufacturer to gain a firm commitment on exact delivery dates and will continue to keep you updated. We will also send you an email shortly before we ship to confirm your shipping address as well as the color watch(es) you ordered.

Your enthusiasm and pre-order of the iBeat watch has helped our team continue our mission of building a breakthrough piece of technology that can save lives. We thank you for your continued support, and we appreciate your input every step of the way. If you have any questions or feedback, feel free to send us an email at support@ibeat.com.

Take care,

-The iBeat Team
