The smart watch demo hardware

Post by Jeff_ »

Hi everyone

I've seen the Smart watch demo video (http://youtu.be/JyL1to-9x_4) and I was wondering which are the hardware parts for :
- the screen (I don't see any docking board)
- the Bluetooth module (there are many)

If anybody have some refs and/or schematics, that could be awesome.

The smartwatch demo uses the SPI screen from the docking board connect to the ODROID-W without the docking board.
Bluetooth module there is just a ordinary bluetooth stripped down from its connectors and case and soldered directly to the USB port on ODROID-W :)

More detail information about the smart watch demo will be mentioned in the ODROID Magazine August issue.
I think it will be published within 10 days.

We also need to check the availability of touch screen for 2.2~2.4 inch display first.
Another important option should be resistive vs capacitive type.
Let's try to find a nice solution with reasonable price range.

It looks like a small 320x240 touch-screen doesn't have to be too expensive :-)
Here are 2 examples that might help:
* Cichin LCD <$2 on Alibaba
* WVShare LCD ~$10

many thanks :)
One more question (pardon me if you already answered to this one) do you plan to sell the lcd screen alone (without the docking board) ?

Not at this moment.

How about this product?

It seems to be much easier soldering.

I think only the official RPi camera works because of the hard-coded video core firmware.

A casing for the smart watch would make it more productive

Hi just wondering with this little display could you use it with an XU3? and how the connection would work?

I'm looking for a capacitive display that would just work with the odroid at this kind of small form factor? I'm having a hard time tracking down interface boards to get it working..
