The Fossil/TI supported MetaWatch has started shipment of their new Bluetooth-enabled digital watches (the analog model will follow soon). For those of you unfamiliar with the Fossil-designed devices, they integrate a TI MSP430 microcontroller and a CC2570 Bluetooth host in a digital or analog time piece (the analog watch features two small OLED displays). The watches are designed to act as dumb terminals to display information from a paired cellphone (notifications, weather, plane departure times, etc.) Both Javier S. Pedro and myself have ordered devices and a Python library already exists for Maemo 5. Hopefully happy hacking will ensue.
