Lilygo TTGO T-Watch-2020 is a Nicer Looking Arduino Programmable ESP32 Watch

We’ve covered several ESP32 watches over the last year include TTGO T-Wristand, Watchy, and DSTIKE ESP32 watch. Those don’t really have the nicest looking design, and some people complained about various shortcomings including the difficulty to customize/program the watch.

Last year, Lilygo introduced TTGO T-Watch smartwatch that, due to support for expansion boards, was relatively thick, but at least documentation and Arduino code samples can be found on Github. The company has now launched a slicker version with Lilygo TTGO T-Watch-2000.

You’ll find Arduino samples for most/all features of the watch on a new Github repository, as well as documentation on ReadTheDocs that is for the original TTGO T-Watch, but should also work on the new smartwatch.

LilyGo TTGO T-Watch-2020 can be pre-ordered on Banggood or Tindie for about $30 including international shipping. If you need more customization the original T-Watch supports optional modules such as LoRa and GPS, various enclosure, and other accessories (mini-keyboard anyone?) which you’ll find on the aforementioned websites, as well as the company’s Aliexpress store.
