Hey folks,

first of all, thanks for these great products :)
So my suggestion would bascially be this:
  • TinyScreen+ with the upcoming mini connector
  • onboard eeprom (as an option maybe?)
  • Sharp Color ePaper (like in Pebble Time)

The important part here is the sharp color display.
The ePaper display is not the same as an eInk display. It features a normal refresh rate like LCDs but still comes with a very low power consumption on static images and good daylight visibility. Because of that it requires backlight for visibility in darkness.

It was used on the pebble time and any product after that, featuring good refresh rates, low power usage, and I think also 16 bit colors.

I could not find it on the sharp website, but might be worth a call or mail to ask for pricing and possibilities. The display itself should not be bigger than the wifi Tinyduino board.
