Soldering Workshop with the Timesquare DIY Watch Kit

For our next soldering workshop, by popular demand, we are assembling the Adafruit Timesquare DIY Watch kit ( https://www.adafruit.com/products/1225 )

This watch comes with a ultra bright LED matrix and a black silicone watch band that fits all wrists from children to adult.  This is a DIY kit, and requires some basic soldering/assembly to put together. It is a beginner kit, so this is a fine project to use in learning how to solder.

Instructions for assembling the kit are located here:

https://learn.adafruit.com/timesquare-watch-kit

We've picked up watch kits in blue, white, and amber.  Since we had to order the kits before we scheduled the class, color choices are on a first come first serve basis at the time of the class.  I think the kit looks great in each color, but if you're looking for a certain color, make you don't show up late.

    I had absolutely no soldering experience... and now I have a working watch. I really enjoyed the class!

    This was a great class! I posted the watch on my FB page, a lot of friends want one.

    I had an unexpected schedule change and won't be able to make this event. Would it be possible for me to pick one of the kits for a trial-run on my own rather then canceling?

      What's the best way to go about picking up my kit from you?

      Just come by the shop one of the nights we have one of our board members there, and they can get you your kit. You're good on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday or Saturday.

      I'm bringing my 8 yr old nephew & 10 yr old niece out for this. It's a pretty easy kit.

      All of our kit classes are done to help people get comfortable with soldering. Previous experience is not necessary. :)

    I can't come this night, I am hoping some kits are left so I can pick one up to do on my own.
