Magnets etc

Placing a neodymium magnet inside the housing so the device can be attached to metal surfaces would be cool!

P.s. I think a separate category is needed for discussions related to mechanical design

What if it will stick to the metal phone and keys inside a pocket?

Good point. Anyway, just an idea. Having some sort of fixation options may be interesting. But now I think that as battery capacity is quite limited, you won’t leave it hiden for a long time (e.g. for logging etc), so maybe it’s not a valid use case.

I think it can be a small compartment in the casing where neodymium magnet “tablet” can be inserted when needed or removed when not, similar to housing of 2032 battery in some compact devices such as kitchen timers.
