We’re big fans of the new generation of fitness trackers, which house the activity hardware inside an elegant-looking analog watch. If existing options don’t quite stroke your fancy, you might want to check out the new Timex IQ+ Move.
Sporting the company’s newly-developed IQ+ platform, the watch can track basic activity metrics like steps, distance, calories, and sleep quality. Using the integrated Bluetooth, it automatically syncs data directly to the app (iOS and Android) four times per day, although you can perform random syncs by simply holding down the dial for three seconds. Unlike most activity-tracking watches, it ditches any smartwatch functionality, so no notification or phone controls – just basic activity tracking.
The Timex IQ+ Move has a clean-looking round dial that sports highly-visible hour indicators and minute markers on the outside, with a sub-dial at the 5 o’clock position showing any available metric you define on the app, such as number of steps and distance traveled. It comes in two case sizes, 36mm and 41mm, with the former sporting an 18mm band and the latter getting a 20mm strap. Features include a polished brass case, a mineral glass crystal, 50 meters of water resistance, and a leather band. It comes in six colorways.
Available now, the Timex IQ+ Move is priced at $149.
