Wearable Circuits and enclosure

Hi All,

I am planning to create a wearable device, similar to a wristwatch. Are there any off-the-shelf devices or small enclosure-type kits available that we could use to get started?

There are tons of bands available to replace the stock ones on Apple watches and the like. So certainly there's no need to re-invent that portion. I can't really say I've ever seen a watch-like enclosure. You might be able to get ahold of some (cheap) failed watches and gut them. I had a Garmin for a while that pretty big. It's hard to imagine cramming any DIY project into an Apple watch package - they're pretty small.

Watches for Scuba diving are even bigger. That may be a place to find a large-ish enclosure.
