I'm a current APC customer (wifi unit) and I received a notification via email about the new Nano device. There do seem to be some differences between an APC unit and a Nano and I have a few questions:
-) Is the goal for the Nano to be a replacement for the APC units (as in "APC 2.0") or is the intention to have both units for sale intended for different use cases + price points?
-) Would there be any possibility of posting up a comparison page that highlights the differences between the two units (size, shape, power consumption, supported water bath sizes, etc.)
-) Would there be any possibility of posting up a "rationale" for why one would choose one unit vs another? Something that says "if you're going to cook items concurrently, use this device for the multi cook support, if you're going to cook a Thanksgiving turkey, use this device instead?
-) If the intent is for the Nano to replace the APC at some point, when will the APC be retired from service? From a support standpoint, when would support for the APC end?
-) Is the software that controls the Nano the same as the software that controls my APC? If I were to buy a Nano, would there be two control apps on my phone or just one that can control both?
-) What does the speaker do on the Nano? Is that just for a tone for announcement, such as "when the water has achieved the desired temperature" and such?
-) Just to confirm, the Nano does not have Wifi? Is that the strategic intent or will there be a future Nano coming down the road with Wifi integrated?
-) The APC had bluetooth 4.0 and the Nano has bluetooth 4.2 - does that .2 increase in version offer any benefits?
-) Would there be any trade-up/trade-in program for an APC for a Nano?
-) Has there been any lab testing of the "range" of bluetooth connectivity with the Nano?
-) Will Anova Culinary be offering the Nano for sale via Amazon or will it be facilitated primarily via the company website?
-) Is there any difference in the support model for the Nano vs the APC?
-) How long is the power cord for the Nano?
-) The site notes that a Nano could theoretically be dropped into a carry-on for use while traveling. It's something I've never thought of given the size of the APC. Has anyone ever tested actually going through airport security with a Nano and not get stopped?
-) What does "water resistant" mean? Can I wash the Nano in my sink with soap or should I avoid that?
