Timesquare Watch Case: Circling the Square by Adafruit

CircleTheSquare

As shared on Ask An Engineer last night, here is our work-in-progress watch enclosure, launched today as Thingiverse Thing 39040. We are looking forward to the seeing the prints and new designs that come out of this project!

From Thingiverse:

The Adafruit community has been enjoying the new TIMESQUARE DIY Watch kits so much that we wanted to offer another fun activity for our community to enjoy!

Adafruit’s Matt Griffin took a stab at making a watch enclosure that transforms the right angles of the original kit into quite a different friendly, organic shape. And what’s more this can be attached to the strap of a backpack or worn as a necklace fob or pocket watch.

TIMESQUARE DIY Watch Kit – Red Display Matrix: Show up stylish AND on time to any event with this awesome looking DIY watch. We have a few watch kits here at Adafruit but we finally have one that looks good and fits well, even for ladies and kids and others with smaller wrists and hands. Its got a 8×8 bit matrix display and a repurposed silicone watch band for a professional look.

64 LEDs light up to tell you the time in a variety of ways. Built into the kit are 3 different watch ‘faces’ – a scrolling marquee with time and date, a binary watch display (for geeks, robots and binary fans), and a moon phase display (for beach-combers, werewolves). There’s also a built in battery meter so you can check your battery life. Want to make your own watch? Easy! The microcontroller is an Arduino-compatible, all you need is an FTDI Friend and the Arduino IDE and you can design your own watch faces and upload them to the TIMESQUARE.

Engineered for greatness by PaintYourDragon, this watch squeezes 500-1000 full time displays out of a coin battery, and a up to one year ‘resting’ lifetime, so you can use this as a day-to-day time keeper.
