You caved on the iPod Touch, and maybe even bought your kid a cheap tablet, but how are you going to explain to them that there’s no way you’re buying a $US500+ Apple Watch for them? Easy, you just make an adorable felt alternative like Hiné Mizushima did and tell them it’s powered by their imagination so it never needs charging — unlike your smartwatch that’s already about to die.
Like on the Apple Watch, the icons on this low-tech alternative can be swapped and moved around, but you’ll need a needle and thread to do so. The felt strap is adjustable and swappable in the same way, and while not waterproof, the crafty watch should eventually dry off after a shower or swim without the display ever going away.
