Sony Open SmartWatch project
Sony’s SmartWatch is an Android compatible watch based on an ARM Cortex-M3 CPU, STM32F205RGY6, from STMicroelectronics and includes Bluetooth capability and a touchscreen. It retails for around $100.
Previously, developers could create apps for SmartWatch with the Sony Add-on SDK, but Sony is now opening up the project to allow hackers to create and flash alternative firmware, by sharing technical details and instructions. Sony calls it their Open SmartWatch Project and the webpage contains links to a wealth of documentation including instructions on how to flash firmware, a hacker guide with links to datasheets and peripheral information, and a backup download of the factory stock firmware just in case you need to restart from scratch.This entry was posted in firmware, hacks, open source and tagged Open SmartWatch, Sony.
