    Tamping Time

    Some people like coffee and watches, so why not both. https://www.instagram.com/p/BVG2e20D...t_design&hl=en

    My online forum memberships are exclusively coffee and watch forums, so I'm all over this one.

    Wow, the smart version could control something like the DE1!

    A wrist tamper/watch hey, might be a bit heavy to wear all day :-) - and a bit like the 1970s all-in-one hifi systems, each individual component is more useful and practical, standalone, than the hybrid inseparable system. Why not wear a wrist watch? It will only be a few cms from the tamper (on your wrist) when you are using it!

    Coffee Time!

    I have a clock that is in my espresso machine, but it would still be cool to have one of these.

    Do you find you get a bit of wrist fatigue by the end of the day? 🤔

    Perhaps some kind of arm brace / belt + bracing with suspenders would work a treat? ;-)

    Must provide lumbar support though or it would definitely be a WHS issue.

    Yeah, I was being facetious. Wearing a 35kg espresso machine as a watch would be impractical... but convenient when you wanted a quick coffee I guess. 🤔

    Across a few of the coffee & watch groups I'm on, I've noticed the quite a few names pop up on both.

    I like this! It's a cool repurpose of a watch with a broken case.

    Moreso coffee these days Paul. I'm only active on TKNZ, the unofficial NZ watch fanatics club, but have profiles on SCWF, WUS and the old PMWF. My budget doesn't allow me anywhere near TRF or PWF or other forums of lofty heights.

    I'm kinda happy to not follow that rabbit hole... Enough drains on finances already!

    I do think it's a bit of a waste putting a Samsung gear into a tamper though. Very versatile device that's capable of a lot more than decorating a tool that probably never leaves the house!

    But think of the apps the Samsung Gear could have!

    ...

    It's been a couple of minutes and I have only come up with one that's like a pedometer but counts your tamps.

    Emphasis on *could* have... not many 3rd party developers making anything for Tizen. 😢

    Okay, I cant help myself, so here goes. Back in my post #9 I was replying to Magic_Matts post the way I did because I didn't understand it, hence the confused emoji. Then you chime in and tell me im missing a sense of humor, Im not sure how you get from me being confused to having no sense of humor. So long story short, the discussion was between me and Magic_Matt, so in other words, mind your own business.

    PS. Im over it, so type away. Have a good day.
