TIDeals : April 17th - Chronos Watch.


Recommended Posts

Awww, I'm way too late. I checked the order status now, and not only is it sent, it turns out that UPS already have had an unsuccessful delivery attempt at my home (while I was at work) earlier today. Hopefully they'll just hand it over to the postal service soon (for some reason, carrier companies (FedEx, DHL, UPS) here (Oslo, Norway) are hopeless to work with; they insist on delivering during work hours, no matter if the address is residential or not, they don't allow  you to schedule a delivery time, and on and on). Joy.

I've had things like that happen before and I've called and requested them to hold packages at the local distribution office for me to pick up, and have been able to retrieve packages on weekends. I've also been able to have the destination address modified so that a neighbor can receive it, or it is re-routed to where I was working.

I think you'll find that I got it first - about a week ago.  ;-) http://forum.43oh.com/topic/3681-how-to-make-ez430-chronos-868-working-on-915mhz/?p=33126      

I'm sure many of you got the same email - another deal due today (17th April 2013). Maybe a similar $5 deal on the Tiva Lauchpad that there was on the Stellaris? Actually, it mentions tools so maybe t

Wait it is Meta Watch now?   $149 Digital $139 Analog

I checked, no free shipping for Singapore.. is there something you need to enter to get free shipping?

No i didnt enter anything special but just selected the USPS prepid or something.. i read cubeberg's post and tried again today, and it now show a line of shipping entry with an "unknown" value. You two are right, no free international shipping on this deal.

 

The Chronos is a nice gadget. If I own one probably will not be replacing my Casio, and i can imagine can't resist the urge to have wrist watch on both hands hehe :)

ChronosAP drivers won't install on Win8; not digitally signed.
:-(
And apparently, the reduction in cost also caused a reduction in included items... like the driver and software CD / DVD:

 

 

What's Included
  • 2 spare screws
  • CC1111 USB RF access point
  • CD containing documentation and development software
  • Mini Phillips screwdriver
  • eZ430 USB programming and debugging interface
  • eZ430-Chronos wireless watch

Put your win8 in Test Mode..

Considering how many times I've had to reboot over the past few months, that might not be a bad alternative.

Still, though, the watch has been out since 2009 (?) and Windows Vista (2007), 7 (2009) and 8 (2012) have been released so why aren't the drivers signed?

Well, the stupid behavior of delivery companies here (local to me) is that they never bother to call in advance before delivery attempts. You would have thought that after a few deliveries to the same address that they would learn, but no. Anyway, on their second attempt they called me, and I got the package delivered at my workplace (good enough since the package was small) today.
