For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Indiegogo!

I haven't received my survey — when will I get it?

All Indiegogo InDemand pledges will take a full 10 days (or 11 depending on what time you submitted your contribution) to import into our system. Once the 10 days are up, your contribution will import and be reflected in BackerKit. The import will happen automatically, and when it does, your survey will be automatically sent to your inbox.

NOTE: If you placed your order on August 4th or later, the 8/15 survey lockdown date will not apply to you. You'll still receive your survey 10 or 11 days after placing your order, and it won't matter if you received it after the first lockdown date.

How long is the ZeTime battery life?

In traditional Smartwatch usage (used regularly throughout the day), the battery will last around 3 days with a single charge. But more important is how long the battery will last after you stop using the smartwatch feature: the hands will keep going up to 30 days, so no need to worry about wearing a watch that doesn’t tell you the time, as long you charge it at least once a month.

Where are the mechanical hands located?

The hands are located over the color screen, making them visible at all times. Of course, they’re fully protected by a Sapphire Glass combined with touch-sensitive panel, and they won’t disturb your navigation or reading experience thanks to the Smart Movement technology we have built into ZeTime

Is the ZeTime touch responsive?

Yes, the ZeTime offers the perfect touchscreen experience you’d expect from a great smartwatch. The main difference is that you can see the watch hands between your finger and the screen, but thanks to Smart Movement they perfectly and magically work together.

What are the main differences between ZeTime Regular & ZeTime Petite

  1. Sizes.
  2. ZeTime Regular: 44mm
  3. ZeTime Petite: 39mm

2. Despite a smaller size of screen, 1.05”, ZeTime Petite will share the same 240X240 resolution. Given the smaller size of the watch body, we’re trying our best to embed a 180 mAh battery instead of the 200 mAh of the Regular version. This isn’t final yet, our engineering team is working on it as we speak. We’re also working on making the 2-in-1 charger capable of fitting both Regular and Petite version, but this point still need to be confirmed by our R&D after testing.

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
