@PINE64 That doesn't look like an always on display.
@gudenau I mean, nothing says it can't be. That's up to software to decide ;)
But yes, it is not e-ink or e-paper. Those technologies are harder to source and more expensive than you may think.
@PINE64 The Pebble Time isn't actually using an eink screen. It's some sharp thing if I recall.
@gudenau That's the "e-paper" I mentioned. Transflective LCD made by Sharp.
@PINE64 Thought epaper was just the generic name for eink.
@PINE64 shut up and take my money.
Any chance of microUSB or does the form factor demand that charging configuration?
@efraim Using microUSB would make it extremely difficult to maintain the IP67 rating. Also, we're using an existing smartwatch casing which does not have USB -- making new case molds is extremely expensive.
