Just look at it go! $5.6 million in a few hours, $1 million in about half an hour!

I think it is fair to assume that a big chunk of their million buyers would come to fund this and we've probably just seen the tip of iceberg so far!

Best of luck to them...not that it looks like they need it! (Y)

Personally though, no smartwatch is at the stage where I would seriously consider buying one. I know a friend who has a couple and he let me try it out for a bit. Somehow it was still easier for me to grab my phone to get the same - and more detailed - information.

Different strokes for different folks, mind. I'm sure others can provide me with plenty of practical applications for such a device at this time.

$9m and I've just backed it. Missed out on the 1st one as I had no money at the time, wasn't going to let this one slip past me.
