Testing the gateway from @PINE64 (based on technology) on and using my good old Pycom board!

All of this using hardware and software!

Meet my absolutely NOT optimized (no IRQ, no DMA) SPI driver for the mcu. It already runs much faster than my optimized version for the NRF52 :-P

Hey guys, you've had awesome questions in the past. While we have a few listener questions already for the next episode, we can always use more, so get them in!

BTW, totally unrelated: @linmob now has a PineTime, so we'll finally discuss this nice little device next week.

I couldn't find a toolchain for the @PINE64 so I built my own one!

For anyone interested, here's how I did it :

I can now build, flash and debug my code running on the from my PBP!

Pine64 is now selling the PineTime smartwatch (probably the first FOSS one!) with version 1.0 of InfiniTime (the name of the OS) as it's stable enough already: #pine64 #pinetime #infinitime #smartwatch #foss

@JF @PINE64 I absolutely love this project. Please keep on going. In the future I will also join in developing some features. But currently I haven't got enough time.

Thank you for your amazing work @JF :underheart: :underheart:!!!

So I came across news of the InfiniTime 1.0 release first thing in the morning. I bought a dev kit for the PineTime a while back, but never sealed it. The uncomfortableness of wearing it with tape has caused me to not use it as often as I'd like.

So, I bought a sealed one this morning because it's important to support projects you believe in.

Congrats @PINE64, @JF , and everyone who worked to get to this 1.0 release!

We did it! We've just released 1.0!

Please read the full announcement on the blog of @PINE64 ( and have fun with your !

Release note :

What's new in this version : step counter, wake up on wrist rotation, UI redesign, more user settings, user settings stored in flash memory, and many more features and less bugs!

Forget about everything else and read the community update from @PINE64

1.0 for later this month, pictures of the @Quartz64 boards, gateway and end devices and much much more!
