Blocks Smartwatch now available – maybe?

Remember, back in 2014? It was the year of the modular smartphones and smartwatches. Almost all of it turned out to be vaporware – nothing ever shipped, companies folded, crowdfunding campaigns turned out to be fraud… it was quite a mess. But now, in 2018, one product is finally ready and available: The Blocks modular smartwatch!

Or is it, indeed, available? According to this article in The Verge, the blocks modular smartwatch will be shipping sometime in Q1 2018. They wrote this in January 9. Today it’s February 9. On the blocks smartwatch order page, I started the ordering process and then read: “Estimated Shipping Date – Q2 2018”. So they’re already pushing back the release date. I don’t know what to make of it, but I won’t give them my money until I know the product really exists.
