Timex is getting in on the fitness watch action with its brand new addition, and it's got an analogue watchface

  • Go To

The new fitness watch sports an analogue face, putting in next to the likes of the Withings Activite by presenting a more classic look with integrated fitness tracking features. You get a normal watch dial which tells the time and also a couple of other dials inside it. One can be used to select different modes - tracking steps or distance - and the second tracks your progress to that goal.

There's no official imagery for the new device, which seems like a bit of an error on the part of Timex, but there's definitely some kind of market for a fitness tracker which looks much more like a normal stylish watch, and doesn't have the bulk you sometimes get in smartwatches. That said, the Metropolitan+ doesn't seem like the slickest design we've seen from this sector, especially when you've got competition from the likes of Withings.

We've heard the watch should have a battery life of around a year, so at least that's something.

Expect more news on the Timex Metropolitan+ soon.
