Pebble SmartWatch: Customs prevented imports to Germany

The Pebble Smart Watch we go over here mostly little charming when we talk about that 2013 should be the year in which “wearable computing” finds its way into our everyday lives. While we namely the Apple iWatch, the Samsung wait counterpart S Watch and other candidates, Pebble is to have. The Smart Watch is here seen from a crowdfunding project. Wanted to collect $ 100,000 in Kickstarter – fat ten million U.S. dollars have become the thing of it and made the most successful Kickstarter project last year.

As the German community proves there is in this country already has a large fan-crowd at the Smart Watch, which both Android – smartphones and supports the iPhone. Too bad if you order the smart clock and then it gets stuck in customs. This seems to be happening, as a reader told us via email. He wanted to pick up the SmartWatch on duty, but she was not handed over, because the man at the customs wanted to check the clock of the Federal Network Agency – missing documents could be the reason that he had to leave empty-handed. A few days later the sad outcome. The user “bigboxx” reported:

So …. is now gone as I feared it. The clock is not EU-compliant and will now be sent back. (Alternatively, they had suggested to me that they may be destroyed)
I really do not know what degree I should do now. Money away, not because clock. I hope above all that kicked up the not so ne avalanche and other watches are no longer forwarded to the recipient.

A lack of German language instruction, declaration or the Bluetooth certification could be one reason why the German customs (in this case, food) is transverse. The trend but it could be a problem that Germany or even appearing across the EU.

The case is now about two weeks old and the buyer is still waiting for that he gets the green light at customs. Here you can read the entire case and the current state. The buyer of the clock, as stated, came to us in the hope that we have a tip or an idea and that’s why I’m writing this article: To get you even aware that Pebble here apparently failed to resolve urgently needed documents of the goods – and to the other of course you ask for help if you have an idea how to resolve this situation can now. This is an excerpt from his email:

The Pebble team seems not to understand the problem correctly. They now while other documents are available, but going past the problem. Otherwise, there is as yet no visible reaction from those. Do you have any idea how they can communicate meaningfully with the management team at Pebble contact? The official channels are apparently overloaded. I want to sell anything that I would just like my clock, which is also in the customs office in Frankfurt. And they would bring the problems (no model number, missing, written Battery information handling, etc.) to be closer and looking for a way.

So should you have an idea how you can now Pebble pennant clear that it has to be noted here for sending a couple of very important things, we would be very grateful. At the very least, all those interested in the Pebble SmartWatch keep this history in mind, because at worst, a clock is paid to not get it.
