Timex releases $150 IQ+ Move analogue watch with smart fitness tracking
Timex has released a new analogue watch with smart functionality. Called the IQ+ Move, it comes in sizes for both men and women, as well as customizable straps. The wearable is water resistant at up to 50 meters depth and has the abilities to track steps, distance, calories, and sleep metrics. The information is presented inside the companion app for Android or iOS smartphones, synced via Bluetooth. The watch doesn't require charging.
Starting at $149, the IQ+ Move presents a rather stylish (if you are into understated designs) watch with fitness capabilities and a budget alternative to devices like the Withings Activite. Add-on straps, including fashionable designs or silicone sporty ones cost between $18 and $25. Initially, the watch and accessories will be shipping only to the U.S., but it will be sold in the U.K. as well, starting Feb 17 next year.
