Turn Your Old Phone into a Smartwatch!

Turn Your Old Phone into a Smartwatch!

Almost everyone has one of those old indestructible Nokia phones from yesteryear lying around!  Whilst many people reminisce about their durability, no one really does anything with these phones anymore. What if I told you that you could turn one of these phones into a smartwatch of the future?! That is exactly what Tinkernut has done.

At a basic level this project uses the LCD from your old phone and adds a bluetooth connection so that you can display useful messages on the wrist sized display! The project is very well explained and takes you through how to code your watch, and even how to fit it into a watch sized case you can design yourself! While it might not be the most stylish watch it will certainly be unique! To get started on this awesome project check out the instructions.
