      "some customers"

      From a single customer to 99.9% of customers is "some customers", so kudos on the precision there.

      Truth is, if you're getting that mail, you're likely part of those "some" customers.

        Re: "some customers"

        To be fair i registered in october a few weeks after getting my phone so i fully expected it to take quite a while.

        I just shared the email as i thought that it would add to the article

          So are you going to use it or what I would do (Flog it on eBay)

            Re: "some customers"

            i will keep it and use it for about a week and then it will probably live at the bottom of a drawer

            I have already checked the resale market and there is quite the glut of them in the colour given out so they are selling for around half of that which the other colours go for

              *UPDATE*

              Today 28th November i got the email from the courier that the watch will be delivered sometime on the 29th of November.

              Will just have to wait and see if it turns up
