ez430 chronos – Turn on display using accelerometerOctober 24, 2010 at 9:58 pm | Posted in ez430 chronos, idea, MSP430, My Projects | 5 Comments
This is my first attempt creating a simple application for the ez430 Chronos watch.
I was trying to find out how to use the provided sample codes from TI using the Code Composer.
So, I had a simple idea to turn on/off the display depending on the orientation of the watch using the built-in accelerometer.
This application is a modification of the sportwatch sample application.
I know, I know. This is not so power efficient.
Look at the Estimated Battery Life from TI manual above, whoa… I would drain the battery in one and half months for continuous acceleration measurement. This simple application of mine is simply not practical using this watch.
But hey…, the idea is simple and it is a start to develop more complex application.
