Pinetime, A $30 Open Source Smartwatch

I finally got my hands on Pine64’s smart watch. The PineTime costs $30 and has accessable open source firmware. In this video I take a quick look at it.


This smartwatch has:

  • A $27 price tag
  • Open source firmware that you can modify and reflash
  • A battery that lasts a week
  • Step counter and heart rate monitor that don’t really work
  • Bluetooth low energy connection to Android and Linux phones
  • The ability to show notifications from your phone
  • Mediocre but replaceable watch strap
