One after another, the traditional watch makers are moving into the hybrid watches category i.e., the watches that look similar to the regular ones but come with Smart tracking & notification features like the Smart bands.
Timex has recently launched their new Smartwatch named ‘IQ+ Move’ into the market. It comes with an in-built activity tracker along with analogue watch display. You can even see the notifications of your Smartphone on your wrist.
The watch makes use of the Bluetooth technology to connect with the Smartphone to sync the data. Apart from showing the time, it can measure the steps, distance traveled, calories burned and even the sleep data.
Unlike the regular fitness trackers, the Timex IQ+ Move runs on the traditional battery, which means it doesn’t need to be charged. Just replace the battery once the charge is over.
Timex has come up with a different approach to display the activities on the watch. They’ve designed a beautiful analogue dial, which shows your daily activities. This will save a lot of power and hence you get a very long battery life.
Another interesting thing is that the time and date of the watch will be handled by the app and you don’t have to worry about adjusting it manually.
The Timex IQ+ Move is also water resistant up to 50 meters and comes with INDIGLO night-light technology, which makes it clearly visible even during the low-light conditions. It also includes a customizable alarm and a countdown timer.
The watch supports both Android and iOS devices and syncs with Timex Connected app using the Bluetooth technology.
