What’s a C64 watch you ask? Well, it’s Nick Bild’s C64-themed smartwatch that syncs with your Commodore 64! And it’s awesome. Check out the write up on Hackster.io:
I previously built the C64 Watch, which is a Commodore 64-themed Lilygo T-Watch 2020 with an onboard BASIC interpreter. But for a smartwatch to be really useful, it needs to be able to sync with a computer. Sure, I could easily sync it with a modern computer, but I thought it would be way more fun to come up with a way to wirelessly sync with an actual Commodore 64 computer.
Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA.
