SQFMI has released the Watchy on Crowd Supply, having sold out of the open-source smartwatch on Tindie. The Watchy, which was an e-Paper display, can be ordered from US$50 and will begin shipping in May. SQFMI is offering the Watchy with CNC and injection moulded cases this time around.

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.
