Can you give us some ideas regarding what's running under the hood? Like processor type, memory size, display specs (annunciators?), batter(y/ies) type.
How about the software? Did you "borrow" a rom from HP, or are you running your own code?
If any of this is has already been covered, pointer please. If it's top secret, I understand.
It's kinda secret at the moment, but I'm not that good at keeping secrets for too long, I can usually be prodded ;-)
It uses a modern 16bit micro with decent amounts of internal FLASH and SRAM. There is also another non-volatile memory for program and other storage.
Display is just a 16x2 dot matrix, no extra annunciators.
It uses either one or two lithium coin cell batteries.
It's got more grunt and memory than the new 35S anyway.
It's completely all my own code.
Also, if you want my two cents, if you could, I would put a (much) wider bracelet on the watch. Something Rambo size, to compliment the attitude and stance of the watch itself.
I went with standard size watch spring bars, I'm not aware of any wider ones? Then again, I didn't specifically look for anything wider.
I'm not a big fan of the wide watch band, but I can see your point given the rest of the watch is fairly wide.
