How to Build the Watchy E-Paper Smartwatch
Finding ways to have private and secure technology in the modern world can be difficult. But it’s not impossible. While many people choose major brands like Apple or Samsung because of its compatibility with various applications and phones, there are plenty of smartwatches on the market to consider.
One of those is the Watchy created by Squarofumi! We’ve talked about this DIY e-Paper smartwatch before in our Best Smartwatches for Privacy and Security guide. The Watchy is an open-source smartwatch with an e-paper screen and powered by Arduino. It has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 3-axis accelerometer, and found programmable buttons.
The hardest part about adjusting to this smartwatch is the actual process of building it. Because, in case you didn’t see above, it is a do-it-yourself watch! This guide will walk you through each step to building your own private (and cool) e-Paper smartwatch!
