We bought some Fitbit Charge HR's bit to be honest the software sucks and the watch is buggy. Very dissapointed. We wanted the MS one but cant find it anywhere locally.

You can import the Microsoft Band 2 via Microsoft Store US and have it shipped to YouShop. I bought 3 via this way. You can buy them also in the Sydney Microsoft Store and claim 10% GST back on the way out of Australia.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Youshop, havnt heard of it.

How have you found the MS band? We are a MS phone house.

The fitbit software is just really BAD UX imo. Its buggy mostly for heart rate, if you take it off it can take up to half a day to resync an average and start showing up on the APP, and as you have to take it off to shower, we are missing a lot of data. Its a common complaint i read on their forums post buying the fitbit. The sleep side of things is really good though.

Ok just googled youshop. DOes that avoid GST?

So you pay shipping to the US warehouse, then shipping again from the warehouse to NZ?

How much did it cost to send per item?

Wow the MS Band has so much more to it. Just read some reviews, looks way better.

You don't avoid GST no, depending on whether its applicable of course. You can calculate it here http://www.whatsmyduty.org.nz/

Yes, if applicable you pay shipping to the Youshop warehouse though I've found most places do free shipping within US.

You need to get the shipping dimensions then you can calculate the approximate shipping cost from Youshop to NZ here https://www.nzpost.co.nz/tools/youshop/youshop-pricing

B
efore the NZD tanked against the US it was quite handy, now its not so much, but its good for items you can't get here.
