During CES 2019, Withings announced two new wearable devices with the Move and Move ECG. While the latter was scheduled to debut in the second quarter of the year, the former was on track to have a retail release in a couple weeks. Now it appears that the release of the Move has been delayed if an email from Amazon is any indication.
Amazon sent out a notice of delay on February 5, notifying that the product would have a new estimated arrival date of April 3. This will no doubt be quite disappointing to those that were expecting to have a new fitness wearable this month. Naturally, this item isn't just exclusively available from Amazon and is also being sold through Withings own website which currently shows that all Move watches are 'out of stock'.
There could be a lot of reasons why the watch has been delayed, perhaps an error on Amazon's part, so we have reached out to Withings in order to get some clarification on the matter. When we get a response, we will be sure to update the article with the new information.
Update: Withings has responded, stating that there is a delay in the production of the watch and it will now be slated for a release towards the end of March. You can see the full statement down below.
“At Withings, we are committed to providing our valued customers with exceptionally designed connected health devices that seamlessly fit into their daily lives. Due to an unexpected production delay, Withings Move will now ship at the end of March. We are very sorry for this delay and are dedicated to bringing Move to customers’ wrists as soon as we can. We will provide refunds to anyone who wishes to cancel their orders. For those that would like to keep their orders, we will alert them when their Move units have shipped.”
