    So other than the Kreyos and a limited feature Pebble, we are out of luck on WP right? Basically I browsed around looking to buy something and came away with... You can't.
    From what I've seen, yeah that's pretty much it. Peeved off about it as the one I was considering (the Razer Nabu) doesn't support WP and they've clearly said they have no current plans to support WP. For a company that makes gaming peripherals for PC/Xbox... Double standards much?

    Just a heads-up. There is an adidas smartwatch coming out that is compatible with Windows Phone. (It's pretty expensive though.)

    adidas Micoach SMART RUN Watch

    (I've seen the user manual.)

    This rreally irks me. I was interested in that one as well. I'll just take my business elsewhere. I'm done with razer products.

    Aye, I'm gonna wait for them to release for WP I think. My Razer products all work nicely in tandem (Naga Epic, DeathStalker Ult, Orbweaver), so this would have been a nice addition. But unless you release for WP Razer, you won't be able to get my money. Especially since I'm getting rid of my HTC Flyer for a Surface Mini when it releases.

    Exactly. This was one of the only smartwatches I was considering...

    Whats the big mystery or problem about call / SMS intercept?

    My Bluetooth car speaker announces SMS and calls when they come in.

    If they have BT support, and you set your phone to read SMS texts when using BT / headset - they should have no problems supporting exactly what they show in the video.

    Remember, they have a speaker and a mic, so for incoming SMS they can use the speaker to announce and read the SMS and ask you to reply.

    They can also use voice control via BT and their microphone.

    All that can be done in Windows Phone 8, they don't even have to wait to 8.1 - and with 8.1 even Cortana will be exposed.

    I know one thing: if and when I am getting a smart watch, it will be one with speaker and mic so I can actually use voice control to answer SMS, send emails, set reminders - and use Cortana!!!

    Just my 2 cents...

    It's the advanced features of the smartwatch such as the social features of the Razer Nabu, that we won't be able to get on Windows Phone. That's why we're complaining.

    They can't even create a video with the watch working with WP. Did you see their Facebook page, a lot of people are pissed off right now with all the lies and delays. One day they are on track and say the watch will be shipped in April then the next day they come out with an email saying that they are waiting for the speaker part to arrive so they can continue the builds....

    And what if I want to READ the text of the SMS on my Pebble? To me, the value of a smartwatch is in quickly and discreetly checking notifications while in meetings or at dinner or whatever. I may not be able to read the whole thing but definitely enough to know if it's something that needs immediate action or if it can wait.

    And calls/SMS aren't the only notifications, by the way. In fact I'd say that for me, those are the LEAST important issues. Far more important to me are email notifications and from third party apps like Whatsapp, BBM and Facebook Messenger. Android and iOS allow applications to register as Accessibility Services and thus get access to the complete text of that notification, regardless of what app generated that notification. The Pebble Notifier app does this and allows me to send notifications from any app to my watch. That, to me, is valuable, and is also not supported by the WP8.1 APIs.

    Considering this is a funded project like Pebble there's going to be delays. You must forgotten how long it took for Pebble to get watches it to backers. What else would you expect. Did you back them?

    I like the concept behind Kreyos. However it's hard for me to wear non fashion watches. The metal version Moto 360 is absolutely the best looking watch that grabs my attention and the metal Pebbles. I'm gonna order one of the Kreyos after seeing it in action with WP first, but I will be excited for a color screen akin to Android Wear. Only then will I fully divulge in smart wearables. But I'm not going back to Android for that. 8.1 was the nail on the coffin for me returning.

    Hi, yes I backed them since the beginning. I can fully understand the delays this is a kickstarter project. What pissed me off is that from the beginning they said that they were the only ones that their watch was compatible with WP. Then when they had their first delay that's when all the lying started. If you go and take a look at their Facebook page, you will read their last post, the one just before that they replied to some comments that they were still aiming for the April shipping month, then 4 hours later they send an email saying that they are waiting for parts, it will then need to be assemble, test, boxed and then ship.

    A lot of people asked about making some videos, providing pictures, providing more up-to-date information, providing info about the SDK, which shipping company they will use...etc. And most if not all of them, they never got answered or they provided some type of answer which didn't answer the simple question...

    During all that time, we saw a total of about 5 videos about the watch.
    - first one: the original video that shows the watch
    - second one: at CES with the iphone test (which a lot ask to do more videos in different scenarios) but never did a video again with the iphone.
    - third one: at CES again but that time it was a woman showing the watch and stating that it would be out soon...that was a couple months back.
    - fourth one: showing the watch with an Android device (again people ask other videos because it could of easily been fake)
    - fifth one: another video with the same watch and android phone but showing them together...

    Now I sent some tweets to them, since they said that this watch was compatible with WP. So I asked to them to show it in action. They replied saying that they were working on a video and should be out soon.....couple weeks later, ask again, still the same answer. Somebody posted a comment on their Facebook saying that they replied to somebody else on their forum that WP SHOULD be compatible... So I've asked them again. Now they told me that : We are optimistic that it will work with WP with a firmware update upon release of soon after....WTF!!!! Remember that they said they were the only that created a watch that was compatible with WP....

    Anyway, I still hope that they will deliver the watch and that it will be working with WP. Again I understand that delays can happen, changes need to be made during that proceed, but the main point is that they did a very poor job of keeping the backers AND pre-orders clients informed but what is worst is that they LIED to us!

    Please take a moment to go to their Facebook page, read the updates that they provided and read the comments with their responses.....copy/paste, copy/paste....etc.

    Honestly if they do their watch correctly, I really don't see why the Kreyos would not work with WP8.1.

    So for now what I can do is post in this thread when I will have news about that watch and keep you guys posted on that. One day when I will receive mine...hopefully in the next month or so, I will also post back.

    It should of already been available when you guys claim since the beginning that it was compatible and video was in the making to show us the backers. Now I know one thing that you could and should do is create yourself a app studio account with Microsoft, install the app Preview for Developers and install WP 8.1 then create a video with your phone and the watch to prove us that it is compatible and also to give your backers and pre-orders people that it actually works!!!!

    I got an email from Kreyos this morning. If you didn't have a chance to follow on their Facebook page, here is the info:
    ------------------------------------------------
    Hi Backers,
    Short and sweet update today: Great news! The first batch of new speakers we spoke about on our last update (read it here) have already arrived. 5000 new speaker components have been delivered to our production facilities and and the next two batches will arrive in a couple of days. That being said, we're ready to start our first mass production run of the Meteor.
    Our production partners will start firing up their assembly lines on May 9. They'll be working non-stop (including weekends), so that we're on track to churn out the first batch of the Meteors between May 15 to May 20. You can expect to see a comprehensive update including photos and videos on mass production, packaging and shipping as we go through this entire process. We'll be posting this update between May 13 to 15.
    Additionally, a lot of you have been inquiring about our FCC certification-- for those of you who are unfamiliar, consumer electronics manufacturers such as ourselves need to file for new applications even for the smallest of changes we make to the hardware. That said, we needed to retract our previous applications the last time we made the changes--the internal layout of the microphone and our speakers and the new speakers themselves-- to address the issues we found that ultimately led us to push our target shipping dates back. While we were at it, we also tweaked the voltage on the Meteor's display which led to vast improvements in brightness and overall clarity on the unit.
    We have already filed a new application that encompasses all of these changes and expect to get our certification a few days before May 20. That being said, our FCC ID is 2ABLCKM0001. We'll make sure you guys are the first to know once we get accredited. Surely, the Meteors will be FCC, CE and IC-certified before we ship them out to you.
    As always, we appreciate everyone's patience as we work on delivering this project. We're rallying towards the finish line and we honestly can't wait to finally get the final product to you. We remain confident that you will receive a superior product and one of the most functional, if not THE most functional and feature-rich sports-specific watches in the market today.
    For any questions, email us at support@kreyos.com.
    Best regards,
    The Kreyos Team

    ------------------------------------------------

    So at least now we have some dates that we can rely on for future news and updates from them. Also they providing their FCC #.

    Honestly for once, now I feel a little bit more optomistic about it but they could still hit some speed bumps during the currently and upcoming steps.

    From that email no news for WP...

    I will keep this thread posted.

    I finally cancelled my pre-order. After promising up and down yesterday that there would be an update that day, and then silence on the Facebook page, I just can't trust them anymore.

    The fact that we've seen zero proof of anything related to Windows Phone support is just too much for me on a company that I don't feel like I can trust. I don't want a SmartWatch that doesn't integrate with my phone, and I'm afraid that's what they're going to be shipping when they finally do.
