Talk of the town


Launch of the Metropolitan+

With this new analogue tracker, style and functionality are no longer worlds apart. TIMEX’s foray into the connected style collection encapsulates the beauty of a traditional watch and the functionality of an all-day activity tracker, for men on the go.

The watch uses Bluetooth technology to connect with the phone and track all day activity – steps, distance and calories. The battery power of 1.5 years removes all the hassles associated with battery charging! The USP of the watch is the ability to view stats on the watch dial. One glance at the watch and one can see the percentage of goal accomplished.

Anupam Mathur, Head - Sales and Marketing, Timex Group India Limited said, “An active lifestyle often makes you give up on important things in life. TIMEX wants its consumers to not give up on their style for functionality or vice versa. Metropolitan+ is for the modern day men who demand a fit and active lifestyle and are always connected on the go. It is a perfect fit for the men who are interested in tracking their daily progress but wouldn’t want to sacrifice the beauty of a traditional watch on their wrist, a best of both worlds. With Metropolitan+, the daily lifestyles of our male consumers will become effortless, convenient and dynamic.”
