The Watchy is available to purchase once again, this time on Crowd Supply. To recap, the Watchy is an open-source smartwatch based on an ESP32 processor. While that may be enough of a draw for some people, the Watchy also has an e-Paper display, among other features like a real-time clock, a vibration motor and four buttons.
The display itself measures 1.54-inches and has a 200 x 200-pixel resolution. The e-Paper panel sits within an injection moulded case by default, but SQFMI is also selling a CNC anodised case for the Watchy. SQFMI claims that it is finalising the design of the case and that it should add approximately 35 g to the weight of the Watchy.
The Watchy is available to order on Crowd Supply from US$50. SQFMI states that shipping within the US is free and that it will charge by weight worldwide. Shipping should begin on May 31, 2021.
