The watch looks very interesting!
Looks like a very nice hackable micropython gadget. I wonder how long the battery will last though.. 80mAh doesn't allow a lot of WLAN time on the esp32.

Looks nice. Hopefully they better supported than the M5Stack stuff?

EDIT: Oh, there is already a thread about this devices: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=7965 :oops:

I started porting MicroPython (finding/making drivers and adding example code) for the T-Wristband hardware: Hackaday GitHub
