Timex Announces iPod-Controlling Watch

Posted: August 10, 2007 in Tech

Watch manufacturer Timex has joined the Apple bandwagon with a new tiny controller integrated in the hand wrist that is designed to work with your iPod.

Dubbed Ironman iControl, the small mechanism communicates wirelessly with the iPod and can be used as a remote control for changing tracks, raising or lowering the volume and playing/stopping songs. The two devices are connected using a small dongle that needs to be plugged in the iPod, which then sends and receives low frequency radio waves from the watch.
