Flashback: The time when Timex still made computers

This is Techolo’s new series called Flashback. It will feature old, nostalgic items from tech magazines, catalogs, wrappers… anything from the pop culture past. If you’d also like to share yours, feel free to email

“72,000 color sound and under $200” – Timex Sinclair 2068

Timex Corp. known for its watches, actually made home computers back then when personal computing was rapidly growing in the early 80’s. Unfortunately, they were not successful with the Sinclair line and had to close their USA company in 1984.

Come to think of it, early computers were calculators. HP and Texas Instruments were known also for their portable computing devices at that time. Computers -they really actually computed back then.
