imageIts now been a year and a week since we first heard about the Secret Agent smart watch, which was one of the few to promise Windows Phone support and features Qi wireless charging..

The company in the end raised more than $1 million in funding, and promised a release by December 2013.

Things have obviously not gone to plan, and WP7.nl reports that backers have become increasingly restive, and are complaining not just of the delay, but of a lack of communication by spokesperson for the team, Chris Walker from Secret Labs, who last posted an update a month ago on the 1/5/2014.

WP7.nl also complains that Chris has been suppressing dissent by not publishing complaints about the delay on the Agent watch forums.

As of the last update the team was still working on the watch case and sorting out elements of the backlight and screen, so it seems it will be at least a few more months before the accessory will be released, if then.

As a backer myself, I am also starting to wonder if I should not be investing in another Windows Phone compatible watch when they arrive, instead of continuing to wait for vapourware.

Have any of our readers also backed the watch, and are you equally disappointed? Let us know below.
