Hey Will Tsai,

Will you be releasing more Watch batteries? Are they standard batteries we can buy at Walgreens? Or is this a custom made battery? Also how ofyen do I need to change the battery? Is it user friendly easy to change? I bought four watches so I want four extra batteries.


Another question. $99 gives me a one year warranty. Can I buy two of them to give me two year warranty? Or is one year the max you can buy? Do you have a five year plan?

If you r going for the 5 year warranty ( if there is ) , getting just an extra watch may seem more worth it .

Regarding warranty, it says it begins on the date of purchase even though there is a delay in shipping and more so for those not in the first 300. How will warranty be accommodated for the delayed shipping?

how quiet is the unit? how much smoke does it produce? whats the quality of the smoke? does it have refills?

i already own Mystery Smoke, and might get a watch if I can find one that actually looks good in terms of what it can do

They both ard same price ( retailed pricing I'm talking about )

But lynx you can replace the parts if one spoil

VAPR ? well haha too high tech , I guess one part spoil the whole watch spoil , maybe that's why they only gave 3 month warranty ...

That said , I still got VAPR watch instead , hope it lives up to the hype ...

( hope it lives up to the hype ) Famous last words. How many effects this year got so hyped up and were a let down. I be leave if this watch is as good as they say then I challenge them to ship out a few and let the reviews start pouring in. And I mean not review only after trying it out for a week. Lets get some real reviews after a couple of months and lets see? All this pre order ( The 1st 300 ) get this great deal. Your all just funding them to make your 300. If it was in the making for over two years now why are they still adding things to it. Ship them out already. That good all eat my words and buy one.

I trusted their trailer haha ... I trusted what they said , that's why I went for it . ( why did I trust Sansminds ? Well , not sure ) It's high tech in some ways , first smallest pump ( which I believe will give silent activation ) , next no extra parts that hangs out . < this is very important . I don't know why , when I'm gigging I sweat , I'm not nervous but I still sweat , and I'm afraid moisture will damage the fan for Lynx smoke . While for VAPR watch , everything is self contained . And of course , it tells time .

that's good to know that lynx was using a fan...yeah out on lynx because of that alone I don't want it making noise (my mystery smoke makes a little noise) but now I want something that is silent...also out that it doesn't tell time or the screen even do anything...hmmm maybe closer to getting a vapr watch (do they take the payment out when you place the order or when the item ships?)

The noise with the Lynx watch is not an issue, unless you work in a small and silent room for your parents and with windows closed.

It does not tell time but that was an option that Joao told once in a video, because he wanted to produce a thin watch (mine is 7 mm thick only).

A lot of people already asked for the thickness of the Vapr Watch, because everything they produce looks good.... on video.

Also, Lynx watch is MUCH more beautiful and modern than Vapr watch, which is a $25 watch trying to look like a $500 one, and people know the difference.

More interesting comments...I still like that the Vapr Watch is silent...If the occasion ever arises and I'm in a silent (or near silent) room for whatever reason I don't want it being traced back to a watch....As far as looks go, yeah lynx takes after the apple watch look which is nice...but it doesn't light up or tell the time which is a major drawback. If someone asks you for the time and you have to get your phone out when clearly you're wearing a watch is a drawback as well...

I have NEVER had a single spectator asking me for the time...

If they do probably they don´t care about your magic lolol

Not saying it won't ever happen. But having a spec or anyone else for that matter ever ask you what time it is, and to be wearing a watch and not be able to check it seems fishy to me in my opinion, take it or leave it.

Visual aesthetics aside...how does the smoke look with lynx watch? Is it thick? How many puffs can you do one after another? What about refills? What about the operation? It doesn't need a remote which not sure (in my case) if that's a plus or minus yet...

I own the Lynx smart watch and one problem with it is the heating element is located directly on your wrist which gives you a burning feeling when you use the smoke. For some people they have complained about getting a burn blister. With what appears from video demonstration on main trailer of Vapr Watch the smoke is transfered to wrist by a tube so the smoke would be cool by the time it is released from your wrist rather than the heating source being directly wedged between the Watch wristband and your bare skinned wrist. Also it appears the Vapr Watch is much more self contained than the Lynx Smart Watch which has the heating element wedged in by a tube from the Watch to heating element placed snugly on your wrist. This seems to be the Vapr Watches major advantage besides the ability to tell time and looking like a high end stainless steel Watch. Of course once the first 300 get their Watch we can really test it and review it but from what I see it looks like the Vapr Watch is the one we've all been waiting for.

Hello morning folks, I am here for my morning ritual and answer a couple questions.

Shadowness, I own quite a few good watches. I am big on watch wear as it's a fashion statement and I have to attend exclusive venues when I travel to perform. With the spec and details that Vapr Watch is produced with, I highly suspect you can get anything close within the hundreds range, let alone the technology that's built in the watch to produce smoke.. Body carved out of stainless steel block, chromed, two type of body finishes on ONE unit (if you are a watch guy, you'd know..) Curvy scratch free lens. extremely advance watch top built by Seiko Japan. Of course all decors are then installed by master watch maker.. by hand.. on top seamless moulded strap with antenna built-in.. just to name a couple things on the watch itself. But again I am extremely biased. Would love to take you shopping should the opportunity presents my friend.

Magicalos, yes it's completely silent. And it's a pump system, not a fan system. If you own a fan system one, you probably already know the difference.

MR Effecto, it seems like you don't understand our funding campaign. If you are interested, please definitely check out our trailer to see what the campaign is for and how it works. Of course if Juao's product works for you, I am glad you found a tool that works for you personally. Juao is a creative guy and I am sure his product is great as well.

ash2arani, the warranty begins on the day that you receive the item. Because everything is going out with UPS, there will be an arrival date. You also need to confirm and validate to activate your warranty which only takes a minute.

Legendary Wizard, I am not in charge of that department. Have you talked to the SansMinds folks? I am sure they'll assist you if you are looking for a longer warranty.

funnyclown, the batteries are supplied by Seiko Japan directly. Each one lasts well over a year. Due to its small size, it's not the most common in some countries. I'd recommend picking up an extra as it's just a few dollars. It'd save you shipping a single battery in the future. Or if you are our regular customer, the team can easily toss a battery in any time you need it.

There goes my morning ritual. Have a great one folks Smile

thanks for the input on this! do we know if they take the money when you place your order versus when it ships?

Magicalos, yes they do! That's what the crowd funding campaign is for. We are asking for help from the community to make this happen. And that's why you are getting it at $250 while the retail is $400. As our supporter, you are buying at dealer price.
