- Where to get prototype digital watch made?
I think my idea can be done in dead simple digital watch electronics. It really is quite glaringly obvious but I have not seen it done before?
I am going to get a pebble to mock it up then see what people think. Markie, email me and I will tell you the idea. You will either shrug and say it’s pants, but if you are a watch fan….may see the simplicity.Posted 4 years agorichmarsSubscriber
Sounds like a good way to make a small amount of money, by starting with a large amount!Posted 4 years ago
Is it something that would work using existing hardware?
One option may be to do a software version on a pc so you can show people what it is and how it works. Could just be a few hours of a programmers time. Get everyone to sign NDA’s first.nickjbSubscriber
A simple way to start would be a 3D computer model to see if the look is right. You could then get a visual model made by a model maker. Custom electronics in the right size will be hard unless you can modify a standard set of innards. I do a bit of this for my day job so happy to give a few pointers. Email in profile if you want to keep it confidential.Posted 4 years agoKing-ocelotMember
I design watches (& homewares) for a UK company. I know the best places to get digital watches prototyped in Asia but its not by any means cheap. If your idea is based around the digital functionality rather than a case/strap idea it’s not going to be cheap. If its a case/strap idea then it can be done on a 3d printer here.
Interested to hear what your innovation is. I have the contacts and the experience and the tooling for prototyping.Posted 4 years ago
