And happy holidays! We havenâ€™t been taking much time off, so hereâ€™s the latest update on production and shipping.
Weâ€™re making great progress with production, and weâ€™re on track with January 22 shipping. Thereâ€™s some more tweaking to work through, but the process is running well overall.
Great news is that the first units are through the first article submission, which is the official approval of production units at the factory. Things are picking up fast over the following days, and this brings us that much closer to shipping.
The next step now is to review the first batch of the production run. This is a critical and very exciting stage of the production, and weâ€™ll make sure to keep you up to date.
Here are some more snapshots from the production
We'll be back with more photos soon.Â
The Premium Travel Case is almost finished and together with the packaging, the unboxing experience is almost ready. Some smaller details of the packaging are still being modified, such as the foam inside the travel case, but what you see below is for the most part the final design.
Check out the unboxing video below:
Weâ€™ve sent a review unit of FlowMotion ONE to Apple, which they require in order to release the App to the app store, and weâ€™re eagerly awaiting final approval. Again, thank you so much to everyone whoâ€™s been apart of the beta testing. Weâ€™ll continue to push new updates as we get closer to launch.
The Android app is still in development, but it will be ready to go out for testing soon. As things are moving fast now, thereâ€™ll be more updates coming soon.
Weâ€™re really close now, and getting ready to start a new chapter in this journey with all of you. Thanks for being with us through it all, especially during this final stretch. We canâ€™t wait to share ONE with you.
As always, weâ€™ll keep you updated on everything as shipping approaches.Â

Hey Backers, hereâ€™s the latest news.
Good news - weâ€™re on track for shipping the first units end of November. However, we wonâ€™t be able to ship all units in November, but weâ€™re expecting to clear all backer units by December.
As mentioned, weâ€™ll ship all units on a â€˜first come first servedâ€™ basis, according to your backer number. However, there will be some deviations depending on where youâ€™re located. More news on shipping when we get closer, weâ€™ll do our best to ship as many as possible before the holidays.
We recently conducted the most critical stage of CE, FCC and IC certification for ONE. The certificates are mandatory for all consumer products, and with a strict set of regulations, itâ€™s hard to pass the test. Happy to have cleared the first stage - on the first go.
In order to deliver as fast as possible, weâ€™ve partnered up with Floship and DHL Express, the best combo we could ask for. Floship has fulfilled more crowdfunding campaigns than any other logistics company and DHL Express will ship to you in a matter of days. At shipping, you'll get notified and receive thoroughÂ tracking info directly from them.Â
With shipping approaching fast we need to secure in all address and shipping information. Make sure youâ€™ve responded to the backerkit survey and registered the correct shipping info. If youâ€™re not sure, check your status by following this linkÂ (or the previously given backerkit login)
Besides production, weâ€™re continuously working on the app. Weâ€™re getting a steady stream of user feedback, fixing bugs, building new features and getting ready for launch. Stay tuned for new versions (with editor for video!), and Android beta soon.
Weâ€™re also finishing the efforts of optimizing the control system (firmware), making sure we have a state-of-the-art user experience. In addition, weâ€™ll continuously update firmware via the app in the future.
Expect another update in the 2-3 weeks, in addition to several smaller videos and photo updates coming up. Weâ€™ve got a lot going on and will keep you up to speed!
Thanks for all your support.
