I added four aluminum standoffs between the printed layers and held everything with small machine screws. The outside is always the head of a screw, so there were no sharp screw ends to scratch me or damage clothing.

Bluetooth reception has been excellent since I rearranged the parts. The disadvantage of having everything on a plane was that it distributed the pressure against my skin when I tucked it into a sock so that I couldn't discern the vibrations as well as before. I cut off the end of an eraser and taped it to the bottom to focus the contact, and it worked well enough.

I kept a list of the vital program and enclosure changes, but those lists are shorter each time I revise. When I noticed some errant behavior with the compass on my ankle, I wanted a live reading of the heading and maybe another feed to know when I was getting buzzed so that I wouldn't get confused with the device rubbing clothing. The enclosure should be rounded at the corners, provide a hole at the USB port, have walls, and have a place to attach straps.
