My project is to create a Harley Davidson heart rate watch for my dad when he works out. It will have 3 LEDs to display when he needs to increase, remain at, or decrease his heart rate. For my heart rate watch, I have run into several constraints:
The project will use Arduino components and a 3d printed case for the watch. The cost of these can grow rather quickly if not taken into consideration and could blow my budget.
The Harley Davidson aesthetic usually involves sleek curves and is black with orange flames. It is main focus in the design for my watch’s case.
The watch needs to be able to hold the Arduino and its components for the heart rate sensor, while also still being comfortable for the user to wear during a workout.
With the design review next week and the project due in about one and a half months, I really have to be working towards this project on a consistent basis.
Besides the LEDs, I would like to add a timer to record and display how long you maintained the desired heart rate during the workout. This may be difficult to implement into my project because it will increase the size of the watch, as well as increase the cost, and time needed to complete the project.
