Timex launches wireless iPod/iPhone control watch

Timex Ironman iControl

The watchmaker Timex has announced the Ironman iControl, a watch with the unusual ability to interact wirelessly with iPods. Using the receiver, users can command iPods to play or pause, raise or lower volume, and skip backwards or forwards between tracks. The iControl is also said to function with iPhones, though this does require switching the latter into Airplane Mode. The watch additionally has a number of non-music functions: it can store up to 50 laps in memory, and can store a traing log with the current date, best lap and average time. It is water-resistant to a depth of 328 feet. The watch should go on sale today for $125 in pink, blue, green, orange and gray/black colors.

    So close...

    I've been hoping somebody would come out with a Bluetooth watch like this for the iPhone, but it needs a few more features.

    Caller ID - Let me see the name of the person calling my iPhone without having to take the phone out of my briefcase, backpack, pocket, or holster. Obviously, this feature wouldn't make any sense in airplane mode.

    iCal Reminders - Let me see and dismiss the iCal reminder that pops up on my iPhone.

    Artist and Title - Let me see the name of the artist and the title of the song currently playing.
