@AttyVette@stinks now the question is do you pull the trigger or wait until they are even cheaper? Is there really only 1000 left? If there are only 1000 left, will they even be able to sell that many today? Stay tuned next Friday to find out!
@studerc emerged from the shadows and decided to purchase one. Punish his foolishness by giving him all remaining stock after the day and require him to chronicle is journey to rid himself of all of them.
@shahnm I thought I read a post that they couldn’t setup the watch anymore… which would make the meh coupon warranty go into effect right?
warranty info in writeup:
but I thought that as I saw it sold out at 600 of them… but now that I look at the page again it is no longer sold out… and I can’t find the post… so maybe the servers are still up and they will still work?
edit: it now shows 27 sold… I guess I jumped to conclusions… didn’t know if it was a “oh shit” thing and they stopped sales at 600 etc.
@shahnm@thismyusername I don’t recall either of these needing a server for anything or account creation. You do have an option during setup to register, but that’s warranty registration, which you can skip. I think the worst that could happen with these models is whatever weather API they’re using could require an update some day and stop functioning. Of course, Apple could always break it with an iOS update too. They’ve done that to a few of my devices and of course it’s up to the developer to chase the changes. And of course the developer is out to lunch indefinitely on these. But heck, my AE02 works so damn well, I just bought 2 more to give away to friends and a PT01 for myself. I come from a long line of this tech and didn’t think these would grow on me like they have. Really enjoying it. Definitely nicer looking in person. Most smart watches are.
but I guess it was just a bad unit… and I might have mixed in the olio watches as well… this whole post is based on me thinking meh was accidentally giving a discount, but turned out to just be me not paying very close attention.
i bought a VIP watch earlier and though it was nice looking but realized shortly that my least favorite things about smart watches is that they vibrate when you get a text and buzz when you lose blue tooth connection. That’s like, most of the smart features of this watch. I went back to my dumb watch that at least has a day of the week indicator.
I’ve got a thing for these Martian watches. Pretty sad they are going out of business. Used to have a notifier. Psyched about the mVoice I just ordered. It will probably look like a boy watch on my skinny girl wrist but I’m gonna rock it anyways.
I bought an Olio, and it still works, but it’s paired to a dying phone I no longer carry about. Without a network connection, the Olio keeps really bad time. Hopefully this watch will work well as a time piece should the smart part stop working.
I don’t want the Smart-ass fone because I don’t know what it does. You might benefit by revealing what functions they perform instead of clucking on so much about a useless warrenty. You tell me what it can do for me & I Will buy it!! Don’t & guess what?..Simple as that!!
I Was gonna buy one, at least one, but since you all or your computer keeps moving changing the screen around like some Sick Joke, keep your fucking watches & move your fucking screen as much ass you like & ass funny ass you think it is!! Funny is not Money, Honey!!
My mVoice from when Meh first started selling these has taken some damage over time, but I’m trying to land a stable job here, so, Meh, you’re losing out on a sale because you insisted on selling these things like once a week until they’re gone. Maybe if I’m lucky, you’ll only sell like 500 today and there’ll be some left over for when I can afford one in like a month.
Meh. I don’t wear watches. And if I was going to spend money on a smart watch that may lose it’s smart technology… I would prefer the black face ones, which of course are more. Of course, even $19 is too much for something I’d probably just throw in a drawer anyway.
I just got my CL02 model = wrist brick, Irish confetti, or hockey puck on a strap. It looks nice, tells the time OK but can’t connect to anything.
It can serve as a self defense weapon that can be taken through airport security…
I’m still looking for somebody under the age of 70 who actually wears a watch on a daily basis. I’m guessing that most of the smart watches bought are worn for maybe a month or so, then sit forgotten comfortably in a drawer.
I never have understood the need for any smart watch when your phone is…right…there… The majority of my day I’m either at my desk - with my phone sitting right next to me, or at a restaurant - with my phone sitting right next to me, or at home - with my phone sitting right next to me, or in bed - with my phone sitting right next to me, or somewhere where I don’t care about my phone or messages.
@gdibig I wear my smart watch every day. The handiest feature is that five times a day it shows me that someone is calling from my same area code and prefix, which means that a gentleman from India would like to sell me windows. I can swipe left and ignore the call without getting my phone out of my pocket.
@gdibig I wear one every day too. Now it’s an Apple Watch, but before that it was a stainless steel atomic G-Shock. I need to keep my phone on silent at work (and other places) so having a smart watch that notifies me of calls/texts/reminders/appointments, etc. via a subtle vibration is very handy. There are plenty of features I use and don’t have to worry about pulling out my phone.
At this price, I’m tempted.
They’re cheaper than my standard Timex Expedition and slightly nicer looking.
I actually have no interest in any Smart features, anyway.
Anyone know if the screen has any function without synching to any external device?
E.g., day/date, timer, that kind of thing.
I’ve used the heck out of the Martian Notifiers when I want a simple & aesthetically pleasing smart watch—and may not want to risk one of the “good” smart watches (or if I don’t want to worry about charging it for five days). No complaints. Got my mVoice from last Friday’s meh sale yesterday, and had a hell of a time trying to get it to sync to my iPhone until I realized THE SETUP INSTRUCTIONS ON THE MARTIAN WEBSITE ARE WRONG. The instructions say press the bottom button for two seconds to put the watch in pairing mode. Nope—this just turns the watch off (or on). If you pick up one of these, press the TOP button for 2-3 seconds, and the LED will start blinking blue—indicating it’s in pairing mode. Once you do that, pairing was simple. So, with maybe 12 hours of review time under my belt, I’d say that the PTL02 is a very sharp looking watch. No regrets whatsoever about picking this up last week. No regrets about any of my Martian watches. And if an iOS update eventually bricks the software (as happened with the Metawatch), then it was a good ride while it lasted and at least the watches still tell time.
Received mine today. Plugged into USB and flashing red LED light on face… not charging. Guessing it may have something to do with:
“Warning: Due to the nature of the Lithium polymer rechargeable battery, a Martian Watches lithium battery that is inactive for over one year may fall into a deep discharge state or could cause the battery to permanently lose it’s ability to charge”
I’ve worn this watch for about 10 hours, and I think I will wear it daily. Notifications seem to work OK. I don’t use voice control, but the functionality is there. The watch seems to run slow, but it’s only been about 10 hours since I synched it with my “atomic” clock.
Also, the flashlight feature is trippy:
The pins attaching the band to the watch have little levers which can be operated by fingertip, so I may try to replace the leather band with the stainless steel band from my Olio.
I believe I saw the same watch on the Woot app yesterday for more than twice what I paid here.
/image I’m happy
Absolutely useless app for the watch, that really screws up any of the features you want with this app. What a complete joke and waste of money, when you compare this to the flawless Martian Notifiers they sold a while back, and even the Titan JUXT not too long ago. At least those watches didn’t have constant connection issues to the point where even the base notification features don’t function
