Open SmartWatch Project: Arduino tool chain (alpha)

We recently posted about the Sony Open SmartWatch project. Since then, Arduino enthusiasts and Sony have been working on a proof of concept for how SmartWatch could be setup to work in an Arduino environment. As a result of these efforts, the Arduino crew have published a GitHub project that includes an alpha version of a complete tool chain, including the Arduino IDE. This will allow developers to innovate with SmartWatch on top of Arduino’s toolchain. Learn more on the Sony developer’s site.

    My only concern with anything with Sony in the mix, is will they pull the plug on the hardware in a few years like they did with the PS.

    Few years? They’re already announcing a replacement. This is just an attempt to get rid of inventory.

    The bootloader is in ROM on the STM32, it can’t be disabled.
