Brand New Model - Now even smaller and made with brand new SMD Clock Chips!
The SmartWatch+ module adds a Clock & Calendar to your Tandy 1000 or IBM PC/XT class PC. All you need to do is install it under the BIOS ROM and then use the Y2K Patched SMWCLOCK.COM utility to set the time automatically via your Autoexec.bat file.
I made these because the original SmartWatch batteries are now mostly dead and cant be replaced. The SmartWatch+ uses a standard CR1216 Lithium coin cell for long life and easy replacement.
The SmartWatch+ module is fully assembled as shown however, the CR1216 Lithium battery is NOT included due to international shipping regulations.
The "HX/SX/TX & PC/XT" version fits most Tandy 1000 or IBM XT class machines (except the 1000 EX). If it physically fits in your machine, it will work (see attached docs for install locations). The SmartWatch+ module has been successfully tested in IBM XT 5160's and many compatible XT class PCs with a 28 Pin BIOS ROM. It will also work in the IBM 5150 PC if installed into an XT-IDE or Network card with a compatible 28 Pin BIOS ROM.
Now compatible with Robert K's Tandy 1000 3-in1 Expansion board - However, the "write enable" jumper must be removed to prevent the XT-IDE Bios EEPROM from being corrupted.
Please see the awesome video (below) from Geek With Social Skills on how to install these.
For 1000 EX owners, please check which version EX you have as some EX's have the BIOS chip in the middle of the motherboard instead of under the expansion slot. If you have this version, please add the additional socket via the options.
