Components, where to get them and a reference price. You may use compatible ones. The important thing is the display version. The bluetooth module may be another one or omitted (just adjust the PCB for another SMD chip, or just solder the RX/TX pins directly); the battery and charger models can of course be changed. The accelerometer is also optional, and for the display connector you may use a bigger one, or solder wire by wire...

Another option could be using a small Arduino board, like the Mini Pro, Nano, etc. Don't make my mistake, and make your life easy by using a board or a DIP chip, not an SMD one unless you have the tools ( SMD oven, etc. ).
