TIMESQUARE brightest LED color?

by aawaitz on Wed Oct 01, 2014 11:46 am

Which color of LED is the brightest in the TIMESQUARE kit? I am buying this for me son and he will need to use it in sunlight.

In sunlight, the LED brightness is less important than blocking ambient light from flooding the 'spots.' There's a trick shown at the bottom of this page, using Kapton tape:

Kapton will probably work best with the 'warm' colors -- Red or Tangerine, or perhaps White.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Does anyone know which is the brightest LED color for this watch? In addition to working in sunlight I think my son would like it if the watch was bright.
