Make Your Own NeoGeo Watch With FLORA #AdafruitWeekendProject

Keep time with style withFLORA NeoGeo watch. The LED ring can be used as GPS navigation and tell time with this Adafruit tutorial!

Make your own LED timepiece! Use FLORA and its GPS module to tell time with a ring of pixels. A leather cuff holds the circuit and hides the battery. The watch is chunky but still looks and feels great on tiny wrists!

The circuit sandwich becomes the face of the watch, and you’ll use a tactile switch to make a mode selector. The watch has timekeeping (one LED for hours and one for minutes), GPS navigation (customize your waypoint in the provided Arduino sketch), and compass modes.

This is an intermediate-level project requiring soldering and precision crafting. Before you begin, you should read and practice the following guides:
