This is the fully functional, assembled circuit board component of the DECKO LED watch. This does not include the watch case, strap, screws, or o-ring. It is fully programmed and functional. Build your own custom case or simply play around with it as-is.
The board has 5 contact pads for SWD programming of the SAMD21 chip - so it is theoretically possible to customize with your own software. We make no guarantees that you can do this though and will not be able to provide much support (if any). We are considering releasing the embedded source code for the watch to GitHub at a later date along with instructions for building a custom programmer if there is enough interest.
The watch displays time by animating sixty LEDs on a circuit board face about the size of a half-dollar. Though intentionally not a "smart watch", it's got some of the same features like motion and tap detection for wakeup, and light sensing for auto-brightness. Unlike most smartwatches though, it sports a low profile and runs for 6-12 months on a single coin-cell battery.
The watch features advanced motion activation. When the watch is turned into a viewing position, it automatically animates the current time.
Time is displayed by animating the LEDs. The hour winds from 12 o'clock around to the current hour, then stops with its tail pinned evenly on the hour (the head extends as the hour progresses). The minute hand animates in place after the hour hand stops so that the hour and minute are distinguishable even when they overlap.
