This Is the Watch That Makes a Coin Cell Look Awesome #WearableWednesday #wearabletech @hackaday #Arduino

Liquid Watch

This watch is a beauty from its apple wood frame to its concentric LED circle display, but the focus is really a coin cell battery. LiquidWatch, spotted on Hackaday, is an entry in their #CoinCellChallenge. Designed by CF, the time piece concentrates on an artistic design with a focus on nature inspired materials. The leather band and wood poses as soil with a face that has light dancing on turf.

LiquidWatch Circuit Boards

The PCB uses an ATmega 328P with 97 tiny LEDs, and you can see CF has developed a new square version of the board as well. What makes the watch unique is the different modes, including a single LED or fill-in style display. There’s also a fun way to check battery power and an option for displaying seconds. Check out the watch in action.

CF definitely has a passion for time devices, so be sure to check out his other projects on Hackaday. If you like the idea of a circular LED time device, check out our learning guide for the Neopixel Ring Clock. Our Flora microcontroller combines with two different Neopixel rings to make a beautiful display while a GPS module provides accurate time. Mount it on a band or wear it as a pendant—you’ll have people asking you for the time and a list of parts. Make time for making time.


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.
