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.

One thought on “Timex iControl review revisited”
  1. This seems perfect for skiing or anytime your iPod is buried in clothing or inaccessable, but you want to control it. This morning I was using my snow thrower, and listening to my iPod. My playlist ended, so the iPod stopped. It was into the deep jacket pocket to hit a few buttons to get it going again. My iControl should be here this week.

    Another use is in-car. The range of the watch is about 10 feet, so the iPod could be out of reach but still needing control.
