Texas Instruments eZ430-Chronos Wireless Watch Unboxing

I’ve just received the eZ430-Chronos development tool I ordered last week (after 2 working days) by Fedex.

Today, I’ll just post some pictures of the kit and provide some descriptions.

Texas Instruments eZ430 Development Kit Box

There is a woman jogging on the box because you can actually buy a chest strap to monitor your speed, heart beat and calories consumption. If you would like to purchase one (49 Euros), it is available at http://www.bm-innovations.com/index.php/shop_products.html. Apparently there are only 868MHz (EU) and 915MHz (USA) versions, and they do not sell the strap for the 433MHz (international) version as I have.

The watch is normally turned off the first time you open the box, it’s just turned on on the picture because I used it before taking the pictures.
