The latest Kickstarter project form Gordon Williams was the Bangle.js smartwatch. I backed this intersting project - and got my smartwatch at the beginning of 2020. The watch itself is a off-the-shelf product. It’s firmware has been replaced by the Espruino software. The watch is powered by a Nordic nRF52832 ARM Cortex-M4 with 64kB RAM featuring a 1.3 inch 240x240 16 bit LCD display with two touch areas, GPS, Glonass, heart rate monitor, accelerometer, magnetometer and vibration. The included GPS is a bit unuseful since it drains the battery too much.
