HW Dev to help with watch project.

Sun Mar 05, 2017 4:02 pm

Basically I'm wanting a simple, easily programmable smart wristwatch that doesn't need charging too frequently.

I've not dabbled in hardware development since before the Arduino was released, but I'm comfortable with the software side of things.

I think the following could be soldered together to make a functional computer with a rechargeable battery, that wouldn't be too big to stick to some sort of casing around it and then attach to my wrist (I'll figure that out later).

Design wise, I'm thinking essentially stacking it, from top to bottom, as compactly as possible:

e-ink screen
charging/PSU circuit
Pi Zero W

So, what I need is someone who can:

1 - Confirm that this design would theoretically work
2 - If possible, find a combination of these or compatible parts for under £40
3 - Have the parts shipped to them, solder them together, and post them to me
4 - Possibly repeat step 3 in the future when I break it or if anyone else wants one

I've got a bunch of micro SD cards, and plenty of wires, so I don't think I'm missing anything.
