DIY Digital Wristwatch #WearableWednesday

This DIY digital wristwatch would come in handy in many situations but i especially like the ability to set up to 10 alarm times and play games during my commute:

The main incentive behind this project was to see how much I could cram, in terms of both hardware and software, into a wristwatch-like device that is no larger than the display itself. An OLED display was chosen for being only 1.5mm thick and not requiring a backlight (each pixel produces its own light), but mostly because they look cool. The watch was originally going to have a 0.96″ display, but this proved too difficult to get all the things I wanted underneath it. Going up a size to 1.3″ was perfect.
