    Timesquare DIY Watch Kit Red Display Matrix by Adafruit, Intermediate

    Show up stylish AND on time to any event with this awesome looking DIY watch. Its got a 8x8 bit matrix display and a repurposed silicone watch band for a professional look.

    64 LEDs light up to tell you the time in a variety of ways. Built into the kit are 3 different watch 'faces' - a scrolling marquee with time and date, a binary watch display (for geeks, robots and binary fans), and a moon phase display (for beach-combers, werewolves). There's also a built in battery meter so you can check your battery life. Want to make your own watch? Easy! The microcontroller is an Arduino-compatible, all you need is an FTDI Friend and the Arduino IDE and you can design your own watch faces and upload them to the TIMESQUARE.

    Engineered for greatness by PaintYourDragon, this watch squeezes 500-1000 full time displays out of a coin battery, and a up to one year 'resting' lifetime, so you can use this as a day-to-day time keeper.

    This watch comes with a ultra bright red LED matrix and a black silicone watch band that fits all wrists from children to adult.

    The band is an "off-the-shelf" band that holds the watch in pretty well, we'll be creating other bands - the included band is to just get you started! This watch is meant to be hackable, from the software to the band!

    This is a DIY kit, and requires some basic soldering/assembly to put together. It is a beginner kit, so this is a fine project to use in learning how to solder. Tools are not included, you'll need a soldering iron, solder and diagonal cutters as a minimum. Check the tutorial page for details on what tools and steps are required to assemble. It takes about 1-2 hours to put together. Build it in the afternoon and you'll be done in time to hit the clubs in the evening.

    Good kit
    My only problem is the fitting in the band, but I was already aware of this issue before ordering so... I'm more than happy. Also there is other firmware available if you want to switch it up.

    Fun to assemble but impractical
    This kit contains quality electronics and was quite fun to assemble but suffers from a horrible band. The assembled watch doesn't really fit the band at all, almost as if the band was just an afterthought. Sharp corners are exposed, and the watch easily slips out of the band... The overall design is quite poor. This thing is impractical to strap on your wrist and try to use as a watch.

    The electronics are great, but it doesn't really fit into the wristband very well.
