Watch 2 Update

Its been a pretty hectic exam period (It hasn’t really, I just didn’t really know what to start the post with!) but I’ve regardless managed to finish Watch 1, finish most of the construction of Watch 2, design and send off for Watch 3 and learn a fair bit about Visual basic along with way! […]

The Eon Smartwatch – Deux!

3 blog posts in one day! So today, along with my Farnell arrival came the magical package from the far lands of Asia containing my Watch 2 PCB’s!

After much frustration, I placed another order with RS for some more IC’s and picked them up yesterday. With much more care, consideration and solder wick, I […]
