Timex Teams With Qualcomm, AT&T for Cell-Equipped Smartwatch
August 05 2014
While the budding smartwatch industry has been dominated by tech names, at least one big-name watch company wants in on the action.
Timex this week is announcing the cellular-connected GPS One+, a $399 watch that will go on sale this fall. Built in collaboration with AT&T and Qualcomm, the device uses the former’s network and the latter company’s Mirasol display. Mirasol offers a color display, but with the low battery consumption typically offered only on E-Ink devices, meaning the device’s screen can remain on.
