I recently bought an inventory of new Seiko Datagraph UC-2001 watches.
They have 2K of memory, a 40 character (1400 pixels) display, and basic
notepad and calendar functions (the calendar is really just a notepad
which it orders for you). The watch connects via a wireless connection
to the interface box, which connects to the IIe via the joystick port. A
version for the IIc was also offered, and I think it's just a matter of
rewiring the cable. Likewise, it looks like the interface should be
pretty straightforward (all it really sends is plain text) so it might
not be too difficult to get it working with other computers. It's going
to call for some experimentation.

If you want, I can let you know when I'm ready to sell them.
