What is the battery life of BLOCKS?
BLOCKS has a 350mAh battery size, which offers up to 60 hours in standby. Battery life will vary based on usage.
Is BLOCKS waterproof?

BLOCKS is water and dust resistant, which means that washing your hands, sweat or rain will not damage the device.

However, due to the dynamic connectors, it is strongly recommended to avoid showering, swimming or submerging your device.

What warranty period does my BLOCKS device have?
Your BLOCKS warranty will protect you from defects for 12 months from date of shipment. If you experience a defect with the device and wish to return your BLOCKS smartwatch, please contact BLOCKS before the end of 6 month period of your warranty to arrange the return of your device with a valid receipt.
SHIPPING
Where does BLOCKS ship from?
BLOCKS ship from our warehouse in Hong Kong. This means that you will be charged taxes based on shipments coming from HK and thus UK consumers will still have to pay import tax and any duties. Import fees, VAT and customs duties vary by geography and unfortunately, BLOCKS are therefore unable to help with fee calculations.
When will BLOCKS ship to pre-order customers?

We estimate that shipping will begin in Q1 of 2018. Pre-orders will be shipped approximately one month after we have delivered to our Kickstarter backers.

Please note that shipping estimates are subject to change.

Does the BLOCKS price include import charges?
No, BLOCKS store price does not include import fees, VAT or custom duties.
