TIMEX has launched their latest analog watch with sleep tracking and activity tracker in India which is the successor to Metropolitan+ analog watch launched in India last year. This is quite unique as compared to the other fitness trackers and smartwatches in the market, as it comes with the traditional watch battery which doesn’t require daily charging. It does not come with a display but you can see the stats and goal set using the watch dial.
The IQ+ Move uses Bluetooth technology to connect with your smartphone – iOS or Android using Timex Connected App. It is capable of recording all day activity like Distance, Steps, Calories and Sleep. It measures periods of deep and light sleep along with time awake, sleep efficiency percentage and an average length of sleep. It comes with a sub-dial which lets you check your progress of the goal set.
One interesting feature is the option to adjust Time and Date using the app, you can also adjust the time using the dial control on the side. For viewing it at night, it is equipped with TIMEX’s signature INDIGLO night-light functionality. For users with varied taste, it comes with Interchangeable straps for effortless customization with traditional strap options, be it leather or metallic straps. It runs on a traditional watch battery and with the lack of display the battery is said to last up to 1 year and the most important part being no charging.
The Timex IQ+ Move is priced at Rs. 9,995 and available across all TIMEX World stores available in Silver Tone case, White Dial with Gold Tome Accents and Brown Leather Strap while the other version comes with a Gray Silicone Strap and a Gray Finish Case, Black Dial with Blue Accents. The straps can be changed using a quick-release system to change the strap. It will be a great option for users who want an activity tracker but do not like the flashy displays which need constant charging and have fitness and activity tracking without losing out on the design aspect.
