Bangle.js is an open-source hackable smartwatch that NearForm Research and Espruino have co-developed.
It’s hardware consist of NRF52832 processor, 3-axis compass,heart rate monitor, Google Plus Codes,Piezo speaker and Vibration motor, Settings including Privacy, accelerator, GPS, Bluetooth LE, 32 mbit flash and a 240×240 color LCD
with 2-zone touch.
As soon as Google revealed TensorFlow Lite for Micro-controllers at the TensorFlow Dev event in March, Espruino developers apparently got TensorFlow running smoothly on Bangle.js.
Developers can build their own Bangle.js system AI applications and Non-programmers can interact with Bangle.js using the Blockly or Node-RED built into the Chrome Web IDE of Espruino.
“Bangle.js is not just about a single device, codebase or company. I believe it has the potential to bootstrap a community-driven open health platform where anyone can build or use any compatible device and everyone owns their own data. Machine Learning is a critical aspect of health technology and we’re so pleased to be further involved in the TensorFlow open source project,” said Conor O’Neill, chief product officer for NearForm.
It’s in fact a project made for fun and experiments. NearForm also sacked its project Clinic.js, where the smartwatch can help to diagnose health issues.
The Bangle.js Micro-controller device can be easily disassembled with just 4 screws and replaced or fixed.
