    Just got an email stating the lovely stands Nomad make and I ordered are now delayed....

    Like my May delivery of SS with link watch.

    First world purgatory.

    I don't get my SB SS until at least June, so the May 21st+ date is fine by me.

    I cancelled in a pouty strop.

    I thought the pic of the product in the EOD they sent looked a bit rough to be honest. Not as slick as the promo pics. Oh well!

    Heh...that's mid-assembly! (Me, I don't think they should have included the pic).

    Ah, well. You'll have "stand envy" when they ship. :)

    yeah, that was an unfinished stand in the photos. I am a little disappointed it is delayed, but I can wait. If in the meantime apple releases their own, I would cancel the nomad.

    They definitely should have left the pic out!

    Any word on the pods? I didn't get any emails on that one.

    Although, since I ended up with the Milanese, that's not going to work so well. Unless I undo one side of the band. Which I can do.

    Agree..Thinking about cancelling.

    Bad thing is that they charged my card when I ordered. Not good....

    I cancelled as I paid a ton extra to get it shipped to UK quick as, but there doesn't seem much point now there's an extra 4 week+ delay. Also, once I had time to think about it, all that metal and a link bracelet might not play nicely.

    I wish them luck. They're lovely looking stands but I'm over waiting for anything else. I got a nice watch coming eventually and their are plenty of other stands on the market (cheaper and readily available too).

    An additional 4 weeks from the estimated date? Anyone seen any good alternative cool stands? The griffin one bugs me.

    The stand in the photos today doesn't hide the wire immediately coming from the charger circle, I really hope this has been changed for production because it definitely doesn't look so hot.

    I threatened to cancel and they gave me another 10% off my order bringing the stand and pod to a total of $75 bucks....not a bad deal......

    Nothing there. I checked.

    Honestly, it's a bit of a crock that fewer than 48 hours before they're supposed to ship - they send out delayed emails (which I didn't get).

    Also, as someone else mentioned, - NOT a fan of the way the cable is now clearly visible next to the puck-shape of the charger.

    *grumbles...*

    Saw on the Apple Watch Stand thread where people had been offered a partial refund if they did not cancel. I emailed them and they refunded 20%

    Nomad stands-delayed...


    So I'm unclear about this cable showing now. Why does the email update today show a stand that looks different in design than we have seen with no comment about the changes.? To me it looks like this is the new design now. I wanted to order a Pod but now I'm not sure about their ability to deliver!!
