Hacking the Lilygo TTgo T-Watch 2020 with MicroPython #Python @MicroPython @nickzoic
The …and another thing… blog looks at the Lilygo TTgo T-Watch 2020:
On board is an ESP32 microcontroller, 16MB of flash memory and a bunch of peripherals. Under a little thumbnail-removable cover on the side is a standard MicroUSB port for charging, and attached to a standard CP210x-type UART. There’s a little cable supplied but it’s accessible enough that you can use a normal microUSB cable.
AFter looking at it, the next step was some hacking the ESP32 with MicroPython:
I build the newly released MicroPython 1.13 for ESP32, plugged in the watch and flashed it the usual way.
It doesn’t do much like this: you can connect to the serial port and get a Python prompt…
Some hacking later and various interesting things can be done!

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
