As some one who was planning on ordering the Dekunu One, I've changed my mind after reading through their terms and conditions. The following are red flags to me (personally): *"Please refer to Dekunu Support at [email protected]
to learn more about any support offered by Dekunu in connection with your Device." - They don't give any details about the support they plan to offer. *"Dekunu may only provide warranty support for Devices manufactured by Dekunu that are located in a supported country." -And those countrys are??? *"We warrant the Device against defects in materials and workmanship under ordinary consumer use for 12 months from the date of original retail purchase." -They only stand by their very expensive product for 1 year??? Alti-2 and L&B are both 2 year warranties. *"Dekunu collects, stores, uses and discloses large volumes of data, gathered by the Device, software or individual user profiles and linked applications" - Why do they need to sell my data? If I'm paying almost $500 for a new altimeter I'd like to be able to have control over my data. *"The Device will be activated with limited functionality as described at point of sale and additional features will be activated with future software updates." - To me, this means the product isn't actually ready and it's been rushed to release. It's not going to be able to do everything they're saying it will when it's released. *"Some features and functions will only work while the device has internet connectivity." - They make no mention of which features and functions require internet connectivity *"The Device must be used exclusively by the individual whose Dekunu profile is activated on the Device, use by other individuals including but not limited to non conforming individuals is a breach of contract and voids any support or warranty." - Are you fucking kidding me? If I let my friend borrow my altimeter it voids the warranty and you'll no longer support the product??? *"Please carefully read any instructions that come with the Device, including instructions that may be available online." - There are no available instructions online to read before ordering *"Battery life for your Device, as described in any Device description page, will depend on device settings, usage, and many other factors." -So not even a ballpark of how long I can expect a charge to last??? *"You are responsible for connecting the Device to the internet to ensure data stored on your Device is uploaded" -Why do I need to upload my data at all? Which brings me to my main concerns: -What happens to my data and what functionality will be lost if they go out of business and can't keep their servers running? All in all, thanks but no thanks.
