March doesn't particularly like square smart watches, but instead chooses a more technically complex circular design. The outer casing is printed from approximately 70% plastic and 30% wood chips 3D - then sanded and dyed in dark walnut.

The device's custom board can be mounted in the lower housing and contains memory for storing contacts and watch background images, driving Bluetooth LE and more. The watch includes an accelerometer that displays the time when the system detects that the user's wrist has been lifted. The vibration motor can also be felt when notified, and the upper part is filled with a 240 x 240 pixel LCD display.

This open source smart watch is powered by a lithium-ion battery and is recharged on a custom charging stand, including the charging stand, which is also 3D printed. The self-developed watch system code can also be downloaded free of charge to communicate with the smart watch.

March has beenGitHubPublished open source build plans, schematics, code, 3D printed files, etc.
