The Deauther Watch V3 is not your typical smartwatch, as its looks suggest. Its creator, Travis Lin, has based the smartwatch on an ESP8266 board and intends it to be used to create fake Wi-Fi networks, show Wi-Fi traffic and even to confuse Wi-Fi trackers.
Unfortunately, 2.4 GHz only Wi-Fi is a limitation of the ESP8266. Most modern routers support dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi though, so the 2.4 GHz band should remain a good way to interact with networks.
Lin has equipped the Deauther Watch V3 with a real-time clock (RTC) too, a laser that can reach up to 100 metres and a 1.3-inch OLED display. The latter resolves natively at 132 x 64 pixels, for reference and is powered by an 800 mAh battery. Lin has provided four LEDs denoting the smartwatch's battery life, too.
The Deauther Watch V3 is to order now on Tindie for US$65.00, plus US$10 shipping. Lin notes that the smartwatch ships from China, so you may incur customs duties and taxes on top of your US$75 outlay, too. Additionally, Lin has pre-loaded the Deauther Watch V3 with firmware 2.6.0, which you can find out more about here.
