This idea started with an Aprils fools prank about metric-time. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K35xG1buyFA)
First I wanted to make a metric clock but soon this idea evolved from a metric watch into an open course watch.
I knew that it would be hard (or impossible) to make the watch small enough to really wear, but I wanted to try it anyway.
This would be mostly a programming project, but that is nice for long, cold and dark winter nights.
So my watch needs to be:
- small enough to wear
- easy to reprogram
- capable of showing metric time
- have selectable dails
- have an easy understandable menu structure
- controllable with just 2 buttons (digital watches with 4 buttons confuse me)
- cheap (I'm still Dutch you know)
