Supercapacitor powered arduino LED wrist watch #WearableWednesday
Thanks to Peter for ending in this supercapicitor watch project! Read more here.
Super capacitors are new power source, compared to batteries need different charging and power usage. This watch using 6 capacitors because they have better dimensions. Board have high effective step up converter with operation to 0.3V, because caps are are charged to 2.5V and then are discharged to zero.
About super cap power…

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
