Timex iControl review revisited


Just got a chance to pay with the iControl. Don’t buy it if you’re looking for a sports watch. Buy it if you want to control your iPod from your wrist.

The Timex iControl is a watch/dongle combination that lets you control your iPod from your Timex Ironman. The watch itself is quite small and thin — very lightweight — and it has five iPod control buttons as well as a complete set of watch functions including a 50-lap memory, timer, and two alarms. Dongle itself is much larger than the Nike+iPod kit and takes up the iPod’s docking port, which is kind of upsetting since you can no longer use the pedometer if you have both.

Takes a Licking… A Timex Story

A Seiko&Citizen Forum poster has slammed this watch into the pavement, dives with reckless abandon, and treats this 1991 watch like a red-headed stepchild. The result? A cracked crystal and flawless operation on the original battery. Cute story.

Review: Timex TX 730


I wrote a review for my “day job” site, CrunchGear.com, of the Timex TX 730. Head on over and check it out.

Timex has long been the butt of countless jokes. A brand that used to take a licking and keep on ticking has been reduced to bargain bin quartz pieces with a few bright lights like the Ironman series to keep it afloat. Well, Timex has pulled a complete 180 and released a watch that I can honestly say is a step forward for the brand and, dare I say it, everyday horology.

Timex TX Watches Landing Soon

timex_tx.jpgIt looks like the lure of the complicated watch is digging deep into the substrata of watch buyers. The TX line is looking hot so far, with mechanical movements, lots of retrograde hands, and enough quality to make us think twice about Timex.

There are three series of TX watches right now: the 300 perpetual calendar (which doesn’t require adjustments on months with less than 31 days), the 500-series with a second time zone display, and 700-series with a stopwatch, second time zone, and an electronic compass. The picture is from the 730 model.
