Timex has unveiled its latest connected device – the ‘TIMEX IQ+ Move’ Smartwatch in India
TIMEX IQ+ Move, is a result of TIMEX’s 160 years of watchmaking experience and technological innovation.
Targeted towards stylish men who are always on the move, IQ+ Move is an analog activity tracker which combines signature elements of a contemporary traditional watch with sophisticated modern technology for tracking your daily activities.
The first device launched in this segment was the TIMEX Metropolitan+ which has been well received in the Indian market.
The IQ+ Move is a smart beauty designed to help people with busy schedule keep a track of their fitness without compromising on their style quotient. It is an activity tracker with a traditional watch face. It uses Bluetooth technology to connect with your phone and track all day activity – steps, distance, calories and sleep.
One needn’t go through the hassles of charging, as it comes with a traditional watch battery – so no charging required. The USP of the watch is the ability to view stats on the watch dial. One glance at the watch and you can see the percentage of goal accomplished.
Anupam Mathur, Head – Sales and Marketing, Timex Group India Limited said, “We generally give up our style quotient when we are on the move as it is tough to manage both style and fitness together in today’s busy schedules. TIMEX believes that its consumers do not have to give up on their style for functionality or vice versa. IQ+ is for the modern day men who demand a fit and active lifestyle and are always connected on the move. It combines modern technology with TIMEX’s trusted craftsmanship to give consumers more than just a watch. It is an ideal fit for the men who are interested in tracking their daily progress but wouldn’t want to sacrifice the beauty of a traditional watch on their wrist, a best of both worlds.”
The IQ+ Move is the second generation of the Timex Connected Collection, the first being the Timex Metropolitan+ which launched in fall 2015. The IQ+ Move is the first of several connected products from Timex that will be launching throughout 2017, which will feature enhanced analog functionality that marries technology with expert watchmaking.
