I know it's been ages since I last posted an update. It was a very busy end to 2016 and an intense start to 2017 behind the scenes here at Hibermate HQ.
Frankly, the 2016 Gen 4 Hibermate I released late last year wasn't well received by customers at all.
Our return-rates sky-rocketed and our reviews suffered on Amazon and Facebook.
We've taken a bath on revenue and reputation.
The wide single band that I thought would be a great step forward, turned out to be a step in the wrong direction.
The last 3 months I've been working with the team to bring back the Generation 3 model with 2 straps - but with minor improvements at every level to create Gen 5.
"...sometimes you feel like you're taking 2 steps backwards for every 1 step forward..."
Anyway, I'm really happy with the 2017 model:
- The straps are awesome ...
