Do you know if you'll have to pay tax on it at customs?

The release says 31st October so I won't expect to hear anything until next week, really...

freitasm: Was thinking of one, but the new Fitbit tracker/watch sounds good too.


I'm one of the odd ones out I think in that I have a Fitbit Force, and have never had skin irritation issues or anything, and I love it to bits - great device. However, would I buy one now, with the current generation of Android Wear watches coming out? Nope. I'm keen on a 360, or even better the upcoming LG G Watch R...even when compared to the just announced latest Fitbit device with HR and GPS in it, personally, I'm still keen on a Wear device instead...

Have you confronted them with this latest info? Might be worth a visit and cancel the order if you're not happy.

Not sure about the 'flat tire' look though and the supposed poor battery life. Might wait for the Zenwatch and LG GWR to make an appearance before deciding.

Plus, I'm confused. Are threads about smartwatches supposed to go under their respective OSes or in the "Gadgets, robotics, home automation, electronics (including wearables)" forum?

I got sick of waiting and cancelled my pre order with Noels last week (ordered on line).
I have been given 2 different dates from when I first order it at 399.
First day was the 24th then sometime in November

Once I cancelled the order I went into the store in albany and said "what is the best price for one" they came back with "we can't reduce it any more than the current price of $399" so I walked out.

If the RRP is $359 then they are milking an extra $40 out of each watch.
Funny thing however is that Harvey Norman has them at the same price and noels
