NeoPixel SmartWatch #WearableWednesday

Nice NeoPixel watch project by dpeters on Hackaday.io!

Inspired by the NeoGeo watch featured in Make magazine, I set out to create my own Arduino powered watch. Watches are boring though, and I didn’t see much need for a gps and compass in everyday use. Instead, I focused on making something that could help me instead of being a nuisance. Normal smartwatches, while a cool concept, are too expensive and generally lack any sort of customization. My goal was to build a watch that fell between the niche fitness trackers and full blown smartwatches. Using data sent by my phone, the Neopixel watch can display any notification, incoming calls, and precise time. It also features a timer with stop/start/reset, a calibrated uv brightness meter, a flashlight, and an auto-brightness function.
Still in progress is an IR remote signal receiver and blaster, and music playback control using the button on the watch.


Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
