    Timex And Qualcomm Team Up To Make A Smartwatch For Fitness Freaks

    There are a few things everyone knows about smartwatches right now. First, you must have an e-ink screen. Second you have to use them with a phone nearby. Third, they’re not very rugged. Timex and Qualcomm, however, have decided to blow those myths out of the water. Their new product, the Timex Ironman One GPS+, is a self-contained sports watch that allows for GPS location tracking… Read More

  • Timex releases their $275 GPS watch


    I love me a GPS watch. While they’re not quite as exciting in practice as they are in theory, they’re still great for exercising and keeping yourself on the right trail. I’ve thus far only used Garmin models but I’m quite excited by this new Timex watch for $275. Read More

  • The Timex Thumbnail Watch: Decidedly not real

    Look at this thing: it’s supposed to be a concept watch by Napoleon Merana, Steffen Schubert and David Takacs for a series called Timex 2154: The Future of Time. First, I doubt we’ll all survive until 2154 and if we do we’ll all be living in skin huts out on the tundra and second what happens if you bit your fingernails. Do you get shocked? Do you have to go to the drug store… Read More

  • Timex announces new GPS Training watch

    Timex launched a new GPS watch recently, and while it’s intended for athletes who require more exact data when training, the new Ironman Global Trainer uses some pretty high end GPS technology in order to accurately track pace, distance, and heart rate. Read More

  • Review: Timex Expedition WS4

    What’s that? Come here, sweetie. They didn’t mean it. What did they say exactly? Come here. Stop crying. Ok. Count to ten. Deep breath. They called you “fattie?” You’re just bigger than the other sports watches, sweetie. Look at Suunto. Or look at Casio’s Pathfinder line. You’re about the same size but you have more features! What? The T-Touch said that? Read More

  • Thumbnail watch concept, would you buy one?

    That watch is weird – I’m Brian Fellow! The TX54 took runner up in the Timex 2154 Future of Time competition. It’s a concept piece billed as “a disposable timepiece that is worn on the user’s thumbnail. While its translucency makes it blend seamlessly with the hand, a selection of text color options and a glow feature that activates on command make it easy to… Read More

  • Timex iControl review

    How often have you hit the running trails and found that your iPod is really interested in Kenny G. No matter how many times you fumble for your iPod you keep coming back to “Eastside Jam” and “By the Time This Night Is Over.” Now, however, you can just tap your wrist and watch as Kenny is relegated to the deep pits of hell where he belongs. Besides, what are you doing… Read More

  • Timex iPod-Controlling Ironman iControl Watch Review


    I got my grubby hands on a brand new Timex Ironman iControl watch today. Like most watches, it tells you the time. Unlike most watches, it allows you to remotely control your iPod. To get that done, you’ve got to plug in a little dongle into the iPod which connects with the watch via low-frequency radio waves. Click the jump to see full pics and review. Read More

  • Timex Ironman iControl Watch: Wirelessly Control Your iPod

    I feel icky writing about the Timex Ironman iControl. Not because it strikes me as “lame” or “dumb”—the watch wireless controls your iPod or iPhone, letting you select, pause, rewind etc. music—but because my favorite watch review Web site hasn’t looked at it yet. Aside from looking like a Fisher Price toy, iControl does all the tricks that other… Read More

  • Timex TX 730 Hands On

    Timex has long been the butt of countless jokes. A brand that used to take a licking and keep on ticking has been reduced to bargain bin quartz pieces with a few bright lights like the Ironman series to keep it afloat. Well, Timex has pulled a complete 180 and released a watch that I can honestly say is a step forward for the brand and, dare I say it, everyday horology. Read More

  • Timex TX: Takes a Licking, Doesn't Look Like a $9.99 Drug Store Watch

    Watch geeks, rejoice. That vaunted name in timekeeping, Timex, is creating a new line of high-end, $500 watches. The 300 series has a perpetual calendar, the 500 series has a second time zone, and 700 series has a stopwatch, second time zone, and compass. They will also be introducing mechanical watches for the snobs out there. This is really a great move for Timex. Citizen and Seiko are… Read More

  • Wake Up With Timex

    If you’re looking for an alternative for to the iHome, the Timex TM800 might be something to keep an eye on. The TM800 alarm clock allows users to wake up to digital music via a thumb drive or SD media card. I’m not a big fan of the TM800’s design, the alarm clock looks a little on the cheap side. The speaker also looks like it isn’t going to do justice to any of… Read More
