This week’s project is a wayfinding watch! Built with FLORA, a GPS+compass, and a NeoPixel ring, the “NeoGeo” watch can navigate you to any place you like, tell you which way is north, all on top of regular timekeeping. It’s chunky in style on a leather cuff with room to spare for a tiny lipoly battery, and still looks great on even tiny wrists (mine are only six inches around)! Build your own with the complete tutorial on the Adafruit Learning System, and watch the video on YouTube (please subscribe!) and Vimeo.
