O Watch at Maker Faire!

O Watch Preview

  • What is O Watch?
    • A Kids Arduino Programmable Watch to encourage young kids get started with programming and 3d design.
    • This current prototype is made using the TinyScreen kit with associated sensors and 3d printed cases using SketchUp and Printrbot.
  • Why O Watch?
    • Omkar’s vision is to make kids design their own watches and personalize it.
    • His goal is to make it kid friendly by creating some libraries with help from the community, friends and family.
    • This is a good way to get kids interested in designing their own 3d printed custom cases and straps.
  • What next?
    • Omkar is seeking partners to bring this idea to market.
    • Plan is to launch on Kickstarter later this year.

Introducing the “O Watch” – A kids programmable Arduino smartwatch

The O Watch!

The O Watch is a ‘Precise Time Keeper’ :). Using a DS3231 Real-time-clock (RTC) module with a backup battery, it is able to keep time for years with high precision. This is made using Sparkfun Microview, RTC module and a LiPo battery and charger from Adafruit.
