This Is What Happens When You Hack a Casio Watch @travisgoodspeed #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #tech #smartwatch #DIY #hackers

Get ready for the Goodwatch

The master of weird machines @travisgoodspeed has struck again with an amazing hack for a Casio watch, just in time for SchmooCon (FYI tickets are already sold out). As you might guess, the new GoodWatch20 does so much more than the original Casio. The wire on the back of the watch is the hint.

GoodWatch Antenna

If you guessed antenna, then you are correct! According to Travis the watch can receive and transmit everything from CW to 4FSK, which apparently is an upgrade from his previous GoodWatch10. Here’s a post from Twitter with a demo.

The watch uses a TI CC430F6137 microcontroller and has a hex editor, as well as an RPN calculator (for computer science lovers).  There’s also a TI MSP430 disassembler and the firmware has a serial debug monitor. If you want to follow the rest of the breadcrumbs to this amazing watch you should check out the pin on Twitter. Travis will be handing out a few unpopulated boards at SchmooCon and has promised to release the source code and CAD files soon. So, if anyone receives one of these boards, please check in as we would love an update. Note to Travis: thanks again for another mindblowing device for a con. #bloggingu4ever


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.
