Holux GPS Tracker 005 makes your Timex sad

Darren Murph

Not that GPS watches are completely new, but Holux is looking to jump in the game with its GPS Tracker 005. The relatively plain timepiece keeps a low cover for top secret reconnaissance missions, and the water-resistance should prove useful when treading through the puddles of an Australian rain forest. Reportedly, the watch has a built-in SIM card slot so it can transmit real-time tracking information via SMS and the like, and users can even download updated ephemeris information to improve satellite fix times. Too bad it can't double as a multimedia player, but we suspect Holux didn't want users zoning off while enjoying the soothing sounds of Sia when they were supposed to be phoning home.
