I had some help from Ira in making this first legitimate prototype happen, however I have had positive user test results with it so far. It uses velcro to wrap and lock around the user’s arm, and features a pocket that snugly fits the enclosed Arduino + GPS shield.
v01 is made with a black fleece. This fleece is quite stretchy but a bit too heavy for wearing all day. Still, as a prototype it is functioning great.
v00 is seen here as well, it was my very first attempt at an armband. It is made of white spandex, and did not hold up very well. It was a fail, and therefore labeled v00, and does not get it’s own post.
Thanks to Ira for sewing help, and Clay and Nick for user testing !
