The Open Source Watch is controlled by a $10 (USD) Microduino Core. It also has a 1.3″ 128 x 64 OLED display, a Bluetooth Low Energy chip and a 3D printed case. According to Make:, aside from the time and date functions Jonathan is also working on adding other smartwatch functions such as email, Twitter and Facebook integration. He hopes to receive feedback and help from other tinkerers.
