thought popped into my head about the openpandora and how i've always kinda wanted one ever since ashens showed one off years ago
found out that there's a successor to it called the pyra and it's kinda almost nearly ready for release maybe at some point (dev kits have only become available as of august despite the project being in the works since 2015)
found @a_lizard or two at erldunda
bought one to take home
and also dry time (already been here half an hour)
for the record, it's advertised to run for 20 days on one charge (with also no settings turned on)
it also works fully via gadgetbridge with no need for activation via a proprietary app (the mi band 4 and up need to be activated via xiaomi's app initially to work)
my xiaomi mi band 3 arrived yesterday and i've been wearing it on and off since (mainly because it's been sat around for a couple of years and the battery needs a couple of charge cycles to get going again)
it did about 3-4 hours yesterday on a full charge while i was driving but now it seems to be getting a full day with a bit of tweaking to some settings
