An Arduino smartwatch called the O Watch created by 8 year old developer Omkar, who has been creating an Arduino projects since he was six.
Has now transformed his O Watch smartwatch into a kit that has been designed specifically for children to learn coding and more about 3D printing.
The O Watch is fitted with an Arduino compatible core, together with a color OLED screen and a LiPo battery. There will also be an enhanced edition available that includes a sensor board equipped with a 3-axis compass, temperature, barometric pressure and humidity. Enabling a more immersive learning experience using a range of different data input devices.
Watch the video below to learn more about the O Watch new Arduino smartwatch kit ahead of the launch of its crowdfunding campaign that will be launching later this month.
O Watch is an Arduino based programmable smartwatch kit for kids to get started with hands-on programming and 3D design. It comes with a complete set of components and easy-to-use instructions to create your own smartwatch. You can customize it by creating 3D printed watch cases and colorful straps using various band making techniques like paracording.
For more information on the new O Watch Kit jump over to the O Watch website for details. As soon as the crowdfunding campaign launched we will keep you updated. If you found this project interesting why not build your very own Arduino wind speed meter or anemometer to record the wind speed in your area.
