Chess On A Smart Watch? Empty

I have no doubt that many watch SOCs are capable of playing very good chess by human standards - despite their remarkably low power consumption!

I think the issue would be a watch's IO capabilities:

* not easy to see the position clearly on a watch face

* not easy to move the pieces

Has anyone ever tried playing chess on such a small display?

There have long been chess sets available for dolls houses - but I've never heard of anyone actually playing a game of chess on such a board:

Hi all,

Yes very tricky, even more so with the board the wrong way round 🤔

You can buy Smart Watches that will run Droidfish, and that have big displays. And really big displays. If you just got to play chess on your watch.

BRILLIANT!!!  bounce

Put a large strap on a small Android phone and call it a super-smart watch!

Can't understand why I didn't think of that myself!  Laughing

Does a smartphone armband count as a watch?

On paper it looks AMAZING - link.

I would recommend doing more research before ordering it, though.

On the basis of a quick read, I think it would run DroidFish - the Android version of StockFish.

I suspect that such devices will be more common, and hence cheaper, in 5 years time. Right now, if you're willing to stretch your definition of a wrist watch, a phone armband is probably the best option:
