The Timex Metropolitan R

Timex hasn’t used Google’s WearOS on the Metropolitan series, and instead states the watch operating system and app are proprietary. The app has Timex branding and there is a long list of Timex watch faces too, but everything has a very familiar feel to it. The reason becomes clear when registering for the app, as it links to a Huami setup page. Huami is the company behind the Amazfit series of smartwatches. I’ve previously used the Amazfit GTS and the Amazfit T-Rex models… More here.

A likely improvement on the Android Wear smartwatches out there, but not enough to make me even slightly curious. I kind of like the design, however.
