“The new iconnect range is a one-stop answer to the multiple demands of an individual and its affordable pricing allows it to be consumed by different groups ranging from enthusiastic teenagers to diligent corporates,” she added.
The Timex iconnect smartwatches are currently available on Timex website, retailers and e-commerce platform Flipkart.
