Iron Man is made by Timex August 3, 2007

Posted by reverseengineer in Accessories, iPhone, iPods.

No, silly. Not the Tony Stark one. The Ironman iControl workout watch, built with iPod-like controls around the bezel, and connecting wirelessly via a dongle to control your iPod or your iPhone. Built in cooperation with Apple, the watch includes a dongle that connects to your iPod/iPhone’s universal connector (which means shuffles are SOL). The watch comes in different colors, including pink, orange and green, although we think black would the color of choice.

It has a bit of a problem, though: there are no controls for fast forwarding or rewinding, which is a bummer. What it does have are all of the features of the regular Timex Ironman workout watches, which include lap timing and memory, storing training logs and the like. It’s also water-resistant for up to 100 meters, which I’m sad to say outperforms any current model iPod or iPhone, so if you happen to fall down a deep well, your timepiece keeps tickin’, but your iPod…

The Times Ironman iControl watch retails for US$125, and would make a nice no-occasion gift for your friendly neighborhood Mac Doodler.
