The Timex IRONMAN Move x20 is an activity tracker from watch maker Timex. We guess nobody wants to be left out of the booming smart watch and activity tracker market with smart phone manufacturers, sports equipment manufacturers and now watch manufacturers all coming out with their wearable smart devices.
The Timex IRONMAN Move x20 is just one of 4 devices that was recently launched by Timex. While the other 3 devices had a watch form factor, the Move x20 is more of an activity tracker and has a slim form factor although it still functions as a simple smart watch.
The Move x20 is first and foremost an activity tracker. It keeps track of steps, distance and calories burned. It also keeps track of your workouts by letting you know how far you have traveled and how fast you are running. All tracked information is synced to your iOS or Android smart phone. Like many other activity trackers, the Timex IRONMAN Move x20 can also be used as a sleep monitor. Besides keeping track of how many hours you have slept, it also scores you on your sleep quality. The accelerator on the tracker keeps track of your movements while you sleep. Less movement means better sleep quality.
Just as smart watches have blurred the lines between a smart watch and an activity tracker by incorporating activity tracking functions, the Timex IRONMAN Move x20 also has smart watch functions such as displaying notifications from your phone, incoming call alerts with called ID and also a phone finder function that helps you find you phone when it decides to hide itself under the couch cushion.
