freitasm: Contacting Motorola for some update on this.



Oh thanks

Can you also get them to kick the retailer for charging over the RRP.

It would seem they are confused between the leather vs steel bands and the pricing difference




Would like to bump that comment.

Dear god if I have to wait another full month to receive it I may as well pull the preorder and give up on my dream of owning a smartwatch for the time being. That Nexus 6 is looking pretty good and my dollars might be better spent getting a new phone with better battery life (currently have the Nexus 5).
  


I am rocking a oneplus one at the moment and the battery life is great :)
I might call into Noels on the way home and see if they can put one on hold with 10% deposit ($40 which is a lot better than them holding $400 if you do it online) but i might have a Microsoft band coming as well so will have to see which turns up first, if that does i will cancel the order again.

First reply was "My understanding was that they should be in selected retailers start of this week, albeit in very limited numbers." and assurance he'll try and find out more.

Awesome, thanks for getting that. Have they given you any indication about the current pricing?

So i was able to "pre-order" with a 10% deposit, so them holding $40 is a lot better than holding $400.
They said the standard "we will call you when it gets in"

Does that mean that people that ordered online gets first dibs when it is available to the public?

Just called the supplier again and again they could give me no definite answer other than "will be with you soon".

I understand how frustrating this is for everyone but rest assured the pre-orders will be the first in the country to receive the unit from an official nz supplier.

Some other retailers might be parallel importing the watch.

If you can not wait any longer we can process a refund for you.



If you have any further questions please PM me,


Cheers,

Pre-orders tend to get "first dibs" before stock hits the floor.
However pre-orders may not be in the order of date ordered

i.e. when i did a pre-order on a nexus 7 my friend who also did a few days after me got his before I got the call about mine (I ended up calling them to confirm it was in and got the "oh yes it's here").

Thanks for the update, shame there are no emails sent out to people who are waiting. I emailed customer service last week and have still not received a reply. Slightly off topic, but similar situation, I'm about to cancel a Note 4 pre-order as the date has slipped twice and is currently no ETD !!! I can walk into Spark today and buy one off the shelf.

My "sources" say that the silver has arrived in the country and could be shipping as early as tomorrow. No word on the black though.

Moto 360 with metal bands are now on the moto store! Would be awesome if we got these on first retail shipments. Unlikely though.
