    I'm not the target audience for this, I want more of a polished experience but I like where it's heading for those who care about privacy more than me. so I want this project to be a success even if it won't help me, but for those who want the privacy features, this will be big

    Really happy LTT covered this. Phone/Wearable data mining is atrocious - this is a fantastic project and I'd never have known (or if I did, never have trusted it to be usable/trustworthy) it existed without this.

    A few days ago I bought a 17 pack of old pebble and pebble steel watches. I don't like modern smart watches. I've had the versa 2. It is like the spiritual successor to the pebble watches, but development is tedious and unintuitive. It feels like a shallow immitation that can't get basic features down. Heart rate is nice, but all I want is a good battery life, music controls (which the versa makes you pair to another bluetooth SSID to do), and to show my notifications. That isn't a lot to ask, but there's so much garbage out there desparately trying to juggle features I don't want or need. is the only think keeping the pebble watches alive and I'm not ready to give up the (still superior for my use) smartwatch from a time before google bought fitbit who bought pebble.

    I tried a smart watch ONCE. I do NOT understand what makes them so popular. I have literally no use for anything the smart watch provided and it was simple WAY too expensive for what I was actually using it for.... time. If you love smart watches, more power to you. I'd personally rather spend $200 aud on a nice G-Shock that will last me years instead of a smart watch.

    Boo smart watches. Lame. Get a nice time piece and stop looking like a child. Use your phone for tech. Yes I'm an old man yelling at a cloud. but still. edit; ok fine, Paul gets a pass. thats a pretty cool idea. I'm still mad that most people buy useless smartwatches when a mechanical timepiece is becoming more affordable and usable by the day. There's loads of exciting stuff coming out and it looks spectacular. I'm almost curious if Paul could incorporate a proper automatic into this design to get the best of both worlds.

    Can you feature more open source tech, maybe as a continuous series? I think highlighting things like this is a huge boost for any open source project. Maybe have different people from LTT highlight some open source project they're familiar with. For example, I noticed Colin showcased his FPV drone. There is an open source radio link that is beating out every single commercial one for drones in both range and latency called Express LRS. Maybe a bit out of scope for LTT but I am sure there are plenty of other projects to consider.

    Tbh, the issue with cloud services isn't data collection, it's data sharing that you don't have control over. There's no problem with hosting your own services for smart devices. But none of them let you actually do it unfortunately.

    !!! linus, a motorcycle guy? when? show us or it's not true can Paul make a wristband mp3 player with bluetooth on flexible pcb with an e-ink all around? with physical buttons on the sides (and adequate battery capacity of many small batteries, connect in serial mode, spanning inside the - presumably rubber - wristband itself, probably over the flexible pcb) wide enough, at least 1.5 inches, to be able to have and view properly a list of the songs playing while exercising? the goal of all this is to make it as thin as it can get, for the winter under long-sleeves, avoiding a impractical bulky donut around your wrist linus tell him i wanna carry the least possible when i am jogging outdoors or on a treadmill. tell him maybe he will like the idea of dedicated devices for specific uses, which uses that could get specific devices aren't as countless as someone would initially exaggerate like a crybaby.
