3.0 out of 5 stars
Good ... but bad!, 13 Dec 2012
This order with Amazon leaves me with a dilemma!!
I ordered this item as a 'normal' Amazon purchase .... however ... I was NOT aware that the item would be despatched via China ... and ... I was NOT aware that on delivery, I would be charged an additional £19.03 by British Customs ... which consisted ...
Import VAT .... £8.92
Brokerage Surcharge .... £11.00
Nowhere in the Amazon's 'description' of the product was this mentioned! I expected the price quoted, (in £'s), to be the final expenditure ... bit NO! .. and a 10% increase in the expected purchase price was unacceptable!
I emailed the 'seller' in China ... but I have received nothing back. In time, I will also email Amazon to query why the relevant information wasn't supplied in the product blurb.
Having said all that, I am delighted with both the delivery time and the quality of the product. I transfer my 'sim' from my iPhone to my watch whenever I am travelling, and up until now (3 weeks later), I have experienced no problems at all.
This 'watch-phone' is NOT a true replacement for my iPhone, it is a way of keeping in touch with phone and text traffic whenever you don't want to carry your mobile with you.
Surprisingly, it is not as large on my wrist as I thought it would be (I have a narrow wrist). It is very presentable, and is, for me, readable when it comes to using the options available. I am 'near sighted', and therefore have no problem, but I would advise anyone with 'long' eyesight to not bother.
In conclusion, if you fancy taking the risk in buying an Amazon product that has a 'hidden' origin from China n... BEWARE! I am not too sure that Amazon 'review' comments that are made here ... but ... that's my dilemma!!
So ... it's only 3 stars ... but ... if I knew my purchase encompassed the normal Amazon service .... I would give the product FIVE stars.
I'm just a bit confused!!
Review addition 14/12/2012
I have just been searching other watch phones, and identical phone watches (judging by the images supplied) are selling here on Amazon for up to £140+ So ... my own purchase price, including inport charges, was not bad at all! As long as Amazon stick by their customer support ethics, and you are willing to wait a couple of weeks for delivery,this wasn't such a bad buy. It must be said, though, that the other identical watches were all UK delivery ... so, if that makes you feel more secure, the choice is yours.
