New Breakout Boards arrived!

In this demo i will show the current state of my project.
With the capacitive touchsensor you are able to switch between different watchfaces (vibra motor gives feedback):

- Time
- Date
- Temperature
- Accelerometer
- Compass (not yet tilt compensated)
- Gyroscope

With my windows phone i can send data/messages to the smartwatch. In the near future i will sync my appointments email etc. with the watch.
My biggest goal is to achive a turn-by-turn navigation on the watch!

Get it done!

Hey guys!
It is a year ago since I stopped this project because there was no motivation in case of the missing Windows Phone API, supporting 3rd party smartwatches.
But a few days ago i found this little project in a box while i was cleaning my flat.
I got the time, i got new motivation and i want to get it done!

I ordered some new parts for my ArduWin Smartwatch.
- Sensor Board (Accelerometer, Magnetometer, Gyro and Temperature)
- Capacitve Touch Board (12 Channels)
- MicroMotor Kit (for physical feedback)

In short time I will post new pictures of my breadboard with the new parts connected.

Stay in touch!
