In this blog post we would like to give you an update on when you can expect your ARION to arrive, our new packaging, the free ARION app, and more.
ARION delivery status
When we opened our pre-order store back in May we communicated that the initial batch of ARION would ship from September. After a few months the initial batch was sold out and we communicated that the second batch would ship from October. In this update we would like to address a delay we’re facing, why this happened and when you can expect your ARION to be shipped.
Some of our suppliers were having difficulty sourcing enough components to fulfill the number of ARION units we need to produce. This caused a delay of around six weeks, which means that production will not be finished until the middle of October. Once our partners have completed production, we still need to receive the units, package them and ship them. This means delivery is more likely to be achieved a couple of weeks later.
Unfortunately we’re not able to meet our goal of shipping ARION in September. We’ll be delivering ARION throughout November. Giving individual delivery dates is difficult, it all depends on when the orders were placed and how far they need to be shipped. We would like to sincerely thank you for your patience as we understand this is disappointing news.
We will keep you up to date with all the latest developments on shipment and new product features. In the meantime, feel free to share your input with us regarding any additional features you would like to see in ARION in the future.
New ARION packaging
Recently we finalized the ARION packaging, which you can see in the video below. In this video we’ll show you the packaging and what’s in the box. A nice preview while you’re waiting for your ARION to arrive.
The free ARION app
In August we unveiled the brand new ARION app for iOS and Android. With the ARION app you can keep track of your runs using the GPS on your phone and get real-time feedback on target zones like pace, speed and heart rate. This all can be done even without adding the ARION wearable, so feel free to try it out already.
New ARION videos
Recently we unveiled two new ARION videos, a promo video and a video focused on features. If you haven’t watched them already, please check them out 🙂 Subscribe to our YouTube channel if you would like to be the first to see new videos from us.
Free workshop about running form
This past Monday we gave a free workshop about running form. Many interested people showed up and learned a lot about running form, facts and myths about running and much more. We will be hosting more workshops on different topics in the future. These will be hosted in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, so if you’re in the area feel free to drop by! We will also be recording these workshops for you to enjoy even if you can’t make it personally. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates.
