Timex has introduced its IRONMAN Run x50+ smartwatch which connects to mobile phones via Bluetooth. It allow users to view and control fitness apps and music, and to receive texts, caller ID, and other notifications.
“When not running, you can continue to wear the Run x50+ and have the convenience of all-day notifications and appointment reminders on a high resolution, easy-to-read display.
Without a smartphone connection, it provides the time, chronograph functions, an interval timer, alarms and the INDIGLO night-light. It offers water resistance to 50 meters, so it can survive splashing, swimming and training in the rain. The IRONMAN Run x50+ will be available in March at selected sports and electronic retailers worldwide.
