Obviously. My CST-01 finally stopped working yesterday.
Works on the charger, but stops as soon as I remove it from there.
I could even attempt a repair mayself if I knew the exact place where to cut it open and fix the battery contact. I know how to use a soldering iron or conductive glue or epoxy.

This started about 5 weeks after I got it. While wearing it, it would simply stop. That happend 3 or 4 times, so I made it a desktop clock. Worked this way for another 8 weeks or so, until yesterday.

I would love to wear it. It's such a shame it's now useless just because of a little contact problem.

I don't expect any help from the makers. They're broke.
My interpretation is that they tried to fulfil or refund the non-kickstarter preorders first to avoid legal issues. Kickstarter backers won't get anything.

It's over. Production was finally stopped. Money gone. No watches. Failure.

My CST-01 has now been sitting on the shelf for over a year, always displaying the time when it stopped, 23:29. Looks nice.
