Dear Weela backers and partners,
The development of the next generation of Weela home gym started a year and a half ago. Up until now it’s been a great and surprising journey. We are so grateful for all the interest that we have received from individuals, businesses and the media. The newest product that we launched on indiegogo half a year ago garnered a lot of interest and was sold to 20 countries. Retailers from more than ten countries have been interested in Weela. Now before the product has officially even been launched we’ve sold Weela more than 200 pcs to companies, associations and individuals. More than the Weela predecessor in its lifetime.
Presales have been incredibly important, and through them we can prepare for production and sales at the appropriate scale. We are grateful for each backer and person who has been in touch with us. We have received numerous messages from people who want to purchase Weela once production is started. Our mission is to enable better health, improve wellbeing and an easier tomorrow.
After March we’ve been entirely focused on the product and but marketing on hold, but still we are getting inquiries.
When we started the crowdfunding campaign, our goal was to start deliveries in August. This has indeed been the schedule we set our eyes on but as you can see with the end of the month here, there are delays. The tests for the CE-mark have taken longer than previously and delayed production. We have prepared for every contingency to ensure we can start production as soon as the tests are completed, but it will take some time.
The tests for the CE-mark are still ongoing and when they’re completed we can order the last components. We will inform you as soon as the tests are done and when we can specify a more exact timeline. The tests are now focusedon fine-tuning the smaller details of the product.
Quality and safety are our top priorities and we will not compromise on that, even if it takes now some extra time.
We are thus asking for understanding and patience. We believe that we can get deliveries started in the autumn.
The preorder price is valid until we will start delivering our products.
You can always reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
On behalf of the Weela team,
Miikka Kurunlahti, CEO
