Why Buy The Apple Watch When You Can Build A Working Apple II Watch?

apple_2_watch

Sure, you could go out and buy the new Apple Watch, but why do that when you can build and own your very own Apple II Watch? Everyone knows that you should wait for the second generation before jumping in on an Apple product right?

Actually, this is more of a back to the future kind of thing.

The watch runs on a Teensy 3.1 processor and has a 1.8″ TFT LCD screen. It even has tiny floppy drives!

See the watch in action break.

All hail Aleator777 for brainstorming and building this delightfully retro futuristic semismartwatch. Head on over to to Instructables for all of the info you need to make your own.
