Timex's smartwatch will connect to the Internet without the aid of a smartphone
The timepiece will be called the Ironman One GPS+ and will pack a few nifty features, aimed at the hiker crowd. Firstly, as the name suggests, it will have a GPS and will use it to not only detect your location, but also report speed and traveled distance. What further sets it apart, though, is the fact that, thanks to an exclusive partnership with AT&T, it will also have its own cellular connection, as opposed to having to be paired with a smartphone in order to gain one. So far, it is said that the watch will be able to use said connection to communicate one's location to their contacts, either to arrange a meetup or in case of emergency. Whether it will support any type of messaging or mail service is still subject to speculation.
