new updates on the progress of production.

VULCAN has reached its funding goal! We have made it to 104% of our goal thanks to all of you! All your support truly means a lot to us. Without it, we would not be able to do what we love and pursue our dream. It has been a long journey so far and we still have a long way to go, but every day we are getting closer to bringing VULCAN to you. We are very proud of what we have accomplished so far and we are excited to share it with you soon. Thank you all for making this possible.
We are currently running another test to gather more data on the battery life. Hopefully, the camera won’t break again. We will also be updating the FAQ in the next few days, so feel free to message us with any questions you have and we will do our best to answer all of them.
The VULCAN team
Hello everyone! We would like to say thank you to all who have been supporting us. We have just made it through 50% of our goal. it has been a great pleasure to meet you all!
We have been working on a new battery testing video, we will be posting another update as soon as we have the video made.
We hope everyone had a wonderful 2018, and we wish you all the best for 2019.
Happy holidays, everyone! We hope youâre all doing well.
Quite a few of you have asked about the battery life, and so we are posting this update to address those concerns as best as we can.
The battery should last about a month before needing to be charged again. However, the truth is we are not yet certain how long the battery can last since we are still testing. But we would like to share with you our progress and findings thus far:
The one-month estimation was calculated in the following manner back in August:
We made a special software to test battery life, which would turn on the display (both tubes) for 3 seconds every 9 seconds. It ran for about 10 hoursâthat’s roughly 3000 cycles. Since we do not have accurate data on battery consumption for standby mode (when the display is not active), we cut the number in half to compensate for standby battery consumption. that will get us about 30 days assuming user check the watch 50 times a day.
Since then, we have made multiple changes to the PCB design and software optimization. We also included a quick display mode, which cuts back on battery consumption by reducing the duration of the display and by disabling the accelerometer. We have not run new tests with these changes yet but will be doing so in the coming week. We will share our findings with you as soon as they are available.
