A black and gold finish binary watch #Wearables #Watch #Arduino
A number of binary watches have been made over the years, with the latest one by Instructables user Taifur.
I focused on the aesthetic of the PCB as I am going to keep it open from any type of casing. Intentionally I kept the trace of the top PCB layer free from solder mask so that all the track can be visualized clearly. That gives a better look. For preventing track corrosion, I used Gold Finish on the top surface. I also placed all resistors and capacitors on the bottom side of the PCB.
After finishing, I was surprised by the look of the watch. It really looks great. This can be a perfect watch for electrical and computer engineers. If you are an engineer and like binary, I am pretty sure you will like it.
The watch is powered by an Atmel/Microchip ATmega328P programmed in Arduino.

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.
