    Yeah, I wasn't really thinking about software I guess that does cause another layer of needed care to address. Mostly having a line in the sand with V1 over there and V2 over here simplifies the need to ask questions of the OP when questions are asked, but its pointless to have this separation if the software/apps are for support of both platforms. The solution for that then would be an insane explosion of more narrow focused forum topics, but then it would be a nightmare finding the proper home for questions. The last thing needed is the forum turns into a soupy mess like that seen in Microsoft forums where it's a game of shouting at the OP that they need to post in forum Z because forum Y is for X questions only.

    Probably the easiest solution then is to have the OP provide questions from a template answered to specify which device and other helpful troubleshooting information depending on the question type.

    I'm predicting a lot of repetitive confusion to occur if a single Bangle.js forum device listing continues to represent 2x different versions of the device. Perhaps Bangle.js should be renamed to Bangle.js V1 and a new device in the forum for Bangle.js V2.

    Or you use small magnets and a hall sensor to read then you don't need to have any actual penetration of the watch core hull. I really wonder if the folks over at http://www.polymagnet.com/ would be interested in partnering up for something custom in this area. Those guys over there at poly magnet are amazing! They can custom design magnets to achieve feats that normal magnets that we know today are not capable of! Check out this video to be amazed and get an idea of what I'm talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IANBoybV­ApQ

    Got my watch in the mail yesterday! I'm gonna start creating an exterior watch core model with AutoDesk Fusion 360 which is free for personal use: https://www.autodesk.com/campaigns/fusio­n-360-for-hobbyists Make sure you meet the requirements if you plan to use the free personal license. I'm a bit rusty with modeling software so this is going to take some time.

    In the future I may be building a 3D model generating lidar scanner turntable that could possibly be used to make this sort of work easier.

    @Johan_O thanks for the link. Looks like the same hardware. Something strange happened when I followed that link on my PC. Malwarebytes kicked in to let me know something:

    Website blocked due to a suspicious top level domain (TLD)

    Website blocked: http://www.dtone.cc Malwarebytes Browser Guard blocked this
    website because it may contain scam activity.

    @Gordon As soon as my watch arrives I'll start working on building a model unless someone beats me to it.

    I'd like to see if the existing push pin can be re-used for the printed part, but I can see it being handy to use one of those tube screws if the pin doesn't make a tight fit or is too tight.

    Unfortunately, I still don't have my watch to get measurements as it seems that it may be stuck in the shipping center Chicago USPS due to this Coronavirus issue. Rather than endlessly asking peeps to take measurements can I ask @Gordon if there's a CAD or 3D model available for public reference to make 3D printing stuffs easier to springboard from?

    I didn't think there would be interest in this so I'm happy to have drawn a small crowd :)

    @user110971 your numbers match those that @Johan_O posted so thanks for the confirmation :)

    Interesting adapter you found there. I'd like to know if the Suunto core adapter works as well, although I think I'll stick with a custom printed solution as I'm not digging those screws which I can see easily falling out.

    I was thinking I'll try out a PETG based filament for this job since it has excellent mechanical strength, doesn't warp under ranging temps, has a much higher melting point that PLA or ABS so if I accidentally leave it in the car it has a better chance of coming out not warped, and its food safe so I shouldn't worry much about constant contact with skin and leaching chemicals. Thanks for the tip though.
