Have you tried messaging them through their WOO Kite Facebook page?
I'm going to because they made a post regarding KOTA :wink:

Dave was the guy behind Xensr and had some connection to ShadowBox, but I don't even know the guy's last name, so what can I really say?

Dave has a different business in Green Bay, WI, that still exists, I think. Met him and his wife at a beach one day it was windy. He had the logo on the sail of his windsurfer. I had to apologize later for almost jumping over him. He was cool about it and said he saw me lining up the jump, "because that is what I would have done". Seemed like a great guy and I was super bummed he couldn't get someone to finance the scale up of the business. I felt the software was the best on the market, they just couldn't get the hardware right. Batteries leaked internally, water leaked into the case, etc.

I have heard back from Leo at Woo, so they are still cooking. Maybe just overwhelmed?

The idea is excellent, having your score directly on your watch BUT you need to deactivate the passcode and each time your woo is underwater (even in the newest case) it will be disconnected from your watch...

I've sent messages to Woo HQ using instagram, now I now they got it because I saw the "seen" mark :) Wait & See ...
