Flashing BangleJs firmware.

Posted on
  • Hi,

    I am wondering how simple or difficult to flash BangleJs firmware (current beta stage) on another watch.

    I saw one of my friend is wearing the same watch that he purchased couple of months back. I discuss him about the hackable watch and he is excited to see on his watch. :).

    So I might have a early testing device before I will have mine in March 2020.


  • Hi! There's a bit of a discussion on http://forum.espruino.com/conversations/­341425/

    Basically you can unscrew the watch, peel back the LCD, then solder on wires for SWD and program a hex file using an SWD programmer like the nRF52DK.

    It's not something I can spend much time helping you with, but someone else might write up the process?

  • Ok, I hope opening the watch is not an option for me. Can it be done Bluetooth over the air by nrfConnect app? Since the watch seems exactly same?

  • It's described in the link above.

    Short answer is: if you're not happy opening the watch, the hoops you have to jump through to program wirelessly are going to be too painful as well.

  • Thank you!!
