I was going to post. I ordered a set of four. Think delivery is January.

Biggest down side is it uses a non-replaceable battery which is good for a year. But considering there is no monthly fee, thought worth a try.

Since you can't replace the battery, seems like a perfect fit for iOS devices.

Android doesn't support Bluetooth 4.0? What the fuck are these idiots smoking?

Some phones do, some don't. It's not universal support, so that's probably why they seem to have an issue with Android.

You can send them back to them when the battery dies which I assume they will replace and refurbish...

Of course, I have yet to ever need to replace the battery in my iPhones.
