Long-established watch brand Timex has announced its first smartwatch: the Timex Ironman One GPS+.
It’s a fitness-focussed wearable device that offers connectivity via its own SIM card instead of relying on a Bluetooth connection to a nearby smartphone.

Last week a major retailer with a significant online presence announced plans to release its own-brand smartphone by the end of the year. No, not Amazon. This news came from Tesco.
BlackBerry says it expects to sell much of its Canadian property and land this month.
This follows an announcement in January when it revealed plans to sell the majority of its ‘real estate’ holdings in Canada.
BlackBerry Limited says it plans to sell most of its property in its home country of Canada.
It’s working with real-estate specialist CBRE Limited to get rid of the majority of its commercial buildings through what’s described as “a combination of sale-leaseback and vacant asset sales”.
BlackBerry has signed a ‘letter of intent’ agreement that could see a consortium led by Canadian shareholder Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited acquiring the company.
Fairfax, which currently owns around 10% of BlackBerry shares, would pay around $4.7 billion (£2.9 billion) for the remainder of the business.
