I'm really not sure why the Turner watch is on here?......myself and many others have had rediculous amounts of issues with the watch, many people including myself have found the battery has died within weeks of buying the unit, and have had to have it replaced. Many have found the unit to be faulty and have had to ask for a replacement, there have been constant issues with the app not working and having to wait for updates to solve fundamental issues. And the customer service is basically non existant?. Plus we as purchasers were told the watch would be kept hidden from plain site and the next minute were seeing people like Chris Ramsey reviewing the watch with links below there video so hundreds of thousands of people can buy a 'time traveling watch'

As a person that rarely buys anything over £80 to have this level of issues with a product costing over £300 is rather annoying.

Yes the watch does some clever stuff but at that level of cost id expect much higher levels of customer service and quality control? the watch strap was cheap as chips and why would anyone put an ultra cheap battery into a product that needs something crazy powerful?.....

and on that note is worth noting that my watch has failed recently after only a few weeks and I'm hoping another battery replacement will do the trick otherwise ill have to attempt to contact the makers to get a replacement.....which will be painful I'm sure

I must agree with you on many of the things you said.

The POTENTIAL of this watch is/was enormous. But are we voting on potential or what we received?

I don't hate my T watch (as its generally well executed) and fairly priced, but not sure I trust it ENOUGH (yet) to use it on stage for 500 people just yet. And as a result I did not put it into my top 3.

If you don't trust your t-watch, you either aren't using it enough or aren't using it correctly. I perform with it every single day, multiple times a day, and I never have a problem. It is, hands down, the best money I have spent on a magic prop in at least the last five years. I understand everyone is entitled to their opinion, and that's fair, but if people are voting for it, there's got to be a reason why, and that first guy jumping in here complaining about it just makes him look like a troll.

I'd like to add, I didn't receive any emails, prompting or requests to vote for any of these when ordering or after, which is refreshing, all are just IMHO.

Because new user - with only 12-16 feet of usable Bluetooth distance, for a stage show for 500 people - that’s not a lot and not reliable enough for me to trust T watch for a show that size. Do you perform often for 500+ ? If not it’s a completely legitimate minor complaint. I stand by my response. I didn’t say it was bad.

Thanks kindly to those of you who nominated me - I appreciate it.

Thanks Aligator. I'm thrilled to hear that from you especially because I know that you were on the fence for quite a while about getting it and extra selective about what you purchase. I'm pleased that you weren't disappointed.

Definitely not disappointed. This is ideal for walkaround if you have table space available and for close up or as a demonstrator.

Being pulled in so many directions this *** watch. So many ideas yet equally concerns. I have the option to get one and yet sit on a very wobbly fence.

Turn@r had a big booth at Blackpool and I think they sold loads of watches.
A lot.
