About Blocks Smartwatch
Blocks Smartwatch, found online at ChooseBlocks.com, is a new smartwatch that promises to be made up of the modules you choose, giving you the ability to make a smartwatch that is unique to you.
How Does It Work?
The concept behind the Blocks Modular Smartwatch is that different people will want to use their smartwatch for different reasons. Because of this, if people purchase a smartwatch from a large scale company that has already been pre-programmed for only a few features, some of which you may use all the time and others not at all.
To solve this problem, Blocks decided to create a smartwatch where the band is made up of your own personally chosen modules. These modules will offer features like the ability to make and receive phone calls directly from your wrist, track your daily activity and exercise levels throughout the day, synchronize your calendars, send and receive text messages, view social media notifications, record voice memos, and track your sleeping patters so you can wake up feeling great every day.
In addition, Blocks allows other designers to create and design new and additional modules, meaning that their watch can regularly be updated and upgraded at an affordable rate and with no need for customers to purchase an entirely new version of the watch – they can simply purchase the new module they are interested in.
At this time, the Blocks Smartwatch says that it is compatible with both Android and iOS smart phones, and the website states that they will eventually be issuing an independent SIM card that will allow their watch to work without being partnered with a smartphone.
At this time the Blocks Smartwatch is still in the crowdfunding phase where they are attempting to raise the money they need for a full launch of their product production. When the smartwatch is officially available it will be priced between $250 and $280. This includes the core of the watch as well the additional modules you choose.
The crowdfunding campaign they have launched started in the fall of 2015 and is estimated to only last about six months. The website says that they believe their product will be sent out in May or June of 2016.
Because this product is only available for pre-order at this time there is no real need for a Refund Policy. Instead, customers who decide that they no longer wish to order this product should contact their Customer Service team as soon as possible to discuss cancelling their order.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who wish to contact Customer Service with questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by using their social media networks. Their website does show that they have a Contact link available for getting in touch with them, unfortunately this link does not appear to be working at this time.
Because this product is only available for pre-order at this time, there are no real customer reviews available that can be used by prospective or new customers to determine whether or not they would like to invest in this product.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Currently both Apple and Android have issued smartwatches that can be paired with smartphones of the same operating platform, and certainly independently branded smartwatches like Blocks will be begin being produced as well.

I've backed & purchased in 2015 and until now, its still no delivery. Tried to contact them as per their instructions, but link doesn't work at all and make me feel: Is it a scam??? And it makes cannot trust anymore of kickstarters or any other cloud funding projects. The things is. I'm still seeing magazines showing BLOCKS watch advertisement that really make me puzzling!!
I was one of the early backers and paid in 2015. With hundreds of attempts to communicate and after early assurances of delivery, no response to many many emails since 2 years, or their Facebook support. I have chased on twitter handle @chooseblocks as well asking for refund with interest, or immediate delivery.
I purchased the Blocks Smartwatch in July of 2016. Over two years have passed and still no delivery and no response to any of my contact attempts. Too bad. The presentation of the Blocks Smartwatch was impressive, but is this a scam?
All I can say for sure is Choose Blocks took my money and returned nothing. Not even an explanation.
