Im using a Lemfo T smart watch. It aint great, but it wasnt expensive. Its around or under $100 and it is a full android. When I say standalone, I mean that it can work with eucw while riding buck ass naked with no sim card or wifi and just the watch

Shane you said it takes logs but does it also do Tour Recording without a sim card?

Pebble uses a helper app, and is only available used. EBay, usually under 50USD. You’ll want the “Pebble Time” version. Seba has full video instructions and download links to everything you need—be sure to do his premium thing so he can keep developing! I got a Moto G7 Play as the host since I’m normally an iOS type (long story). Cost 100USD but is fully functional and sometimes I toss it in a waterproof neck case so I can have the full EUCWorld experience. Like AVAS.

But mostly the pebble is a speedometer with a strong vibrating alarm. Works very well for that.

Good info thanks... so is Pebble the only watch that can connect like this or are there other cheapo watches that can do this?

I think it is both, changing the strap to an EUC compatible one will be doable I believe. 

Shouldn't they be priced 60% more expensive for that to be true?

@Tawpie, Thanks. My Pebble Steel is now reading all the info I wanted. I made the mistake by connecting pebble to Wheellog instead of EUC World. I guess I must have misunderstood Seba's video. @SebaEU

i record csv and live tour without a sim card. I have no cell plan to my name, so it was mandatory. Hell, coverage out here is shit anyhow. Gps works pretty good, but it takes a moment to lock, and the mountains screw it up for specs of time, on occassion. I think the parice of the lemfo stopped around $150 sadly. I cant seem to find them for $100 anymore. When I arrive home, I log out of eucw then back and it automatically uploads thru my home wifi. It uploads all the csv and tour info at that time.

I think if you have a cell phone and plan to carry it, you have quite a few choices as 'companion' watches. I bought a fossil for pretty cheap, and I think it would have worked, had I owned an android phone. I didnt, so the watch went back and I bought a cheapo homtom. It worked but fell apart in short order. In desperation I tried the lemfo and thats what I use.

Anyone know the specifics? 

What makes a 'companion' (cheap $50 or less) watch compatible with EUC World? How do I know which will work and which will not?

Riding Time, Distant and Top Speed are always showing zero

I just tested this and on my setup (Pebble Time Steel on Rebble with the helper app from @Seba’s video) both screens work and update. I know that doesn’t help your situation 😬

Here's an interesting new development. It would need a decent 3D printed case adding, and maybe some kind of front light: https://gizmodo.com/the-watchy-is-an-open-source-smartwatch-for-those-who-m-1846050151

Alternatively you could buy a $20 smart watch ( a ttgo t-watch 2020 ) with a large battery, larger colour screen then install EUC-Dash which doesn't need a phone to connect to your wheel. It currently only works on Kingsong but the aim is to do Gotway/Begode  next. I use this on my wheel and I've been very impressed. It's still in development but is working fine. Here's the various displays:

Does it have a daylight-readable screen?

I find it quite easy to read in the daylight but then I use the simple screen as my old eyes can't distinguish all the details on the full display and my poor befuddled brain doesn't want to know anything other than speed and battery %. There is also a brightness adjust but I haven't bothered with it.

The Watchy looks like an interesting product, It looks very much like this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001242620979.html with a modified main board to make it better suited for wrist wearing. Looking through the specs the hardware is basically identical to what's in the t-watch 2020 that I use for the EUC-Dash project so it should be easy to adapt the code to the Watchy as well (probably only have to redo the interface to suit e-ink) I really like the idea of an e-ink display for both sunlight visibility and power consumption. Sadly it looks like they have made the same design decision as on the t-watch to not include an external 32 khz signal needed to enable the BLE sleep mode. This will limit the battery life while connected to the wheel. Also they have used the pins needed to connect the crystal for other purposes so it's not an easy modification.

I like the design though and might order one when it becomes available.

Meanwhile I find the t-watch 2020 quite usable, I use it all the time for daily commuting now. The screen is quite readable even in the summer here in Brisbane and the battery lasts long enough for a normal day. At them moment I am working on some new features that will reduce the power consumption a bit more. Also I'm in the process rewriting the BLE code to enable support for Gotway, Inmotion and NineBot wheels. However as I don't have regular access to those wheels it is progressing very slowly and any help with implementing support for GW, IM or NB wheels would be greatly appreciated. I anyone want to help a bit just contact me.

If there's anything I can do to help with support for Gotway wheels, it would be my pleasure! I don't really have any coding experience though so it would probably come down to beta testing. I bought a P8 watch a while ago with the idea of using it with my Tesla V2.
