Upload the following code to your Flora using the Arduino IDE. Change the 'interval' variable to your desired timer. Requires the DRV2605 library.

This basic code creates a variable delay between pulses-- adjust the 'interval' value to your liking.

For a more complex, power saving example, check out the Gemma Mindfulness Bracelet.

Basic timer circuit to trigger haptic motor controller at a specified interval.

#include <Wire.h>
#include "Adafruit_DRV2605.h"

Adafruit_DRV2605 drv;

uint8_t effect = 7;
uint32_t wait = 10; // Time between reminders, in seconds

void setup() {
  // I2C trigger by sending 'go' command 
  // default, internal trigger when sending GO command

void loop() {
  Serial.print("Effect #"); Serial.println(effect);

  // set the effect to play
  drv.setWaveform(0, effect);  // play effect 
  drv.setWaveform(1, 0);       // end waveform

  // play the effect!
    delay(wait * 60 * 1000);
