A Connected Watch from Timex

If you had any further doubts about the market for connected watches, it might be time to put them to rest.

Today Timex launched their entry into the smart watch scramble with their IQ+ Move.

This launch is significant in that it removes all doubt as to how the industry as a whole views the evolution of the connected watch.

The thing that most watch writers and, frankly, people who work in the industry so often fail to realize is just how large a force Timex is.  The argument being that because they are sold to the masses and you can find them in drug stores they can't be taken seriously.  Well, guess again.

Timex is offering this watch to both men and women and it can be purchased directly from Timex on their website.  The price is $149 US

Here are the pertinents -

  • Bluetooth technology syncs to the Timex Connected app (compatible with iOS and Android)
  • Check your progress to goal in the app or with a quick glance at the sub-dial on the watch face
  • Sleep Metrics measure periods of deep and light sleep, as well as time awake, sleep efficiency percentage and average length of sleep
  • IQ+ Move is equipped with a traditional watch battery, so there is no charging required
  • Interchangeable straps for effortless customization with additional strap options on
  • Perfect Time and Date means you’ll never have to set the time and date manually; it’s all handled from then app
  • 50 meters water resistant with Timex’s signature INDIGLO night-light functionality
