AWARD WINNING GASWATCH SCALE WITH BLUETOOTH NEARS MARKET INTRODUCTION WITH INDIEGOGO CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN
With One Month to Go, Latest GasWatch Innovation is More than Halfway to Goal
Matthews, NC – May 11, 2015 - Running out of propane for the BBQ grill will be a problem of the past with the new GasWatch Scale with Bluetooth. Evolving from the successful “wired” version of the GasWatch scale, the planned Bluetooth version syncs with an iOS or Android smartphone to provide real-time fuel alerts. The GasWatch Indiegogo crowdfunding effort began earlier this month and is more than halfway to its $25,000 goal. The Indiegogo campaign ends June 8, with the first run of new GasWatch Scale with Bluetooth units to be delivered in July.
A concept first introduced at the 2015 International CES, the GasWatch Scale with Bluetooth provides peace of mind by using a smartphone app to display of how much gas remains in the propane tank, a real-time calculation of remaining cooking time, and convenient audible alerts at the 20% and 10% remaining fuel levels. Since the GasWatch Digital Scale simply measures tank weight, it is very accurate, easy to install and safe to use.
“Building a more advanced version of our popular GasWatch Scale is one of our top priorities as consumers continue to relay on their smartphones for information and alerts. We developed the new GasWatch Scale with Bluetooth to eliminate the frustration of limited Wi-Fi access outside the home. With Bluetooth Low Energy 4.0, our product allows users to walk freely with their phone both inside and out of the home without worrying about Wi-Fi connectivity concerns,” explains Shaliendra Suman, Inventor of the GasWatch.
Perfect for the upcoming summer BBQ season with Memorial Day and Father’s Day at the corner, the fastest way to get a Bluetooth-enabled GasWatch system is to contribute to the GasWatch Scale Indiegogo campaign by clicking here. “Early Bird” contributors save $10 off the product’s $35 suggested retail price and will be the first to receive the new GasWatch Scale with Bluetooth. Distributor options are also available for retailers who are interested in carrying the GasWatch Scale at retail.
The GasWatch Scale with Bluetooth recently won recognition from Hearth & Home magazine with a Vesta Award for innovation in product design and technology and design in the BBQ Accessories category. The award was presented at the mid-March HPBA Show in Nashville and was judged by a group of retailers, distributors, product designers, test lab engineers, affiliate leaders and industry experts.
