Did you manage to get it? Wearing mine right now, did contemplate getting the braclet one just for the bracelet but felt a bit wrong doing that.

Unfortunately not. Just kept taking me to the error page when I clicked on it. It’s was the bracelet version.

Yet another year that the same comments about the website speed are being posted. I dread to imagine what it'll be like when/if they do the July Sale :shock: :thumbdown: :silent:

Well they are not hosted by a small service provider, so one assumes either under spec'd, not setup to flex, or crappy web code/config

In his reply to my complaint, which allowed me to purchase the watch I had been after despite missing out on the daily circus:

Single server? Probably on a shared host? There's the problem. It's their primary retail platform, hopefully some of that investment money gets spent on dedicated cloud compute soon - teenagers are doing a better job writing high demand mobile apps and web servers in AWS!

The site is running really well this morning, refreshes almost immediately for me.

So I thought I had missed it, sounds like I didn’t miss it though...

Wonder how/why it’s running so well then?

Site much more responsive as well. I suspect because it is the middle of the night in the US and Canada, so a noticeable drop off in traffic.

Site being responsive is an entirely new phenomenon at sale or event time that is. 😎
Which is why I thought I had missed today’s release of nearly new, I was a bit late checking and it’s running so well, every day at nearly new release times (all different), it’s been constantly falling over and very slow ....
