Hi Folks,

 

We (as engineers) always wanted to have an Arduino based development platform that has all the bells and whistles built in. Then we said, why don't we build our own. Think of a youngster who wants to get into programming but doesn't have enough electronics knowledge. We have all been there. You want to build a project, you connect wires to the development board but when you are finished you come up with a wire mess most of the time (I do at least). Then you can start programming. Me (Enes) and my colleague (Mustafa) think that people should start programming right away when they are in the learning phase.

 

So we developed the watchX.

 

watchX has built in sensors, Oled display and a LiPo battery with the integrated charging circuit. So that you can plug and start programming. While you are programming it will charge itself so that you can use the device as a standalone kit.

 

You can check more about the device here: https://igg.me/at/watchx/x/

 

We will publish the code and we can't wait to see what will the community do with watchX.

Aha: this is an Indiegogo project pitching for backing - not (yet) an actual product.

 

So it's not really developed yet - it pitching for funds to complete the development.

You can see the first prototype working from the project video and other campaign materials.

The final production prototype is now in the development stage.

Fair enough, but they are still just prototypes - not shipping products.

Of course, they are :)

 

We are trying to be as transparent as possible. You can check the development plan and estimated shipment dates from the campaign page.
