The last time we thought about Timex, we were still using landlines and adjusting the tracking on the VCR so that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze would display properly. Remember "Indiglo"? That's still a thing, apparently! Anyway, Timex is making a smartwatch, though it's...

Timex just added a new entry to its Ironman line of GPS watches, 'cept it's not just any ole timepiece this time -- it's a 3G-connected smartwatch that doesn't even need to pair up with a phone. The company calls it the Ironman One GPS+, and while it may have features commonly found in a smartwatc...

Running has changed quite a bit as an activity over the last decade or so. Moisture-wicking (or "technical") clothing has become commonplace, portable media players are small and light enough to not be a hinderance, and GPS watches and other gadgets have emerged on the scene and rapidly come down i...

Timex said that REI would get its Global Trainer GPS watch first when it announced it way back in January, and it looks like it's now finally available both in REI stores and at REI.com -- albeit a bit later than the originally promised May launch date. That includes both the standalone watch and t...

It's been a white hot minute since we've seen a snazzy new timepiece from the labs at Timex, but it seems that the outfit will finally be dishing out a new GPS-laden watch a year after introducing the Expedition WS4. Set to debut next month, the Ironman Global Trainer with GPS is easily one of the...

The folks at Timex were kind enough to send us a pre-production version of their Expedition WS4 watch, and we can tell you right now -- some serious adventuring is about to begin. We haven't had a chance to do all the rock climbing, mountain biking, and sumo wrestling we plan on using this watch fo...

Timex has always had a thing for pumping out wristwatches that cater to argonauts, and it's doing so yet again with the totally bodacious Expedition WS4. Aside from telling time and withstanding minor bumps, bangs and raindrops, the piece also features an altimeter, barometer, thermometer, chronogr...

As William Gibson once wrote, "the street finds its own uses for things." Of course, the future he envisioned was populated by cut-throat characters with names like Dex Cowb0t, mercenary-types who made their money the only way they knew how: with custom cyberspace decks, hopped up on designer drugs...

Here's something for iPod-wielding athletes. The new Timex Ironman (approximate availability is later this month) will be able to control your iPod. With a 2.4 GHz range dongle connected to the iPod, the watch will let you play, pause, skip and jump to the next track, even with the iPod's hold butto...

Timex invited us over today to pick up its first contribution to the iPod ecosystem, having just unveiled the iPod-controlling Ironman iControl watch at a Manhattan penthouse suite replete with buff models paid to smile as they casually worked treadmills and exercise bikes all day. We spend far too...

We heard it was coming, then we knew it was coming, but Timex has now finally gotten all official with its iPod-controlling Ironman iControl watch. As has already been revealed, the watch uses an RF transmitter to let you control all the basic functions of your iPod (or iPhone in airplane mode), wh...

Chalk another one up to the rumor mill, as it looks like the leaked PowerPoint slide we saw just last month was indeed referring to an actual product. Thanks to an FCC filing, we now know that Timex is actually cranking out a Made for iPod timepiece in its Ironman series. The i-Control isn't the mo...
