With a shared vision of creating contemporary wrist-wearables, TIMEX and BLINK partnered together to co-develop the SOS technology in the watches which are specifically made for this market. TIMEX | BLINK is a smart beauty designed to help people with busy schedules keep a track of their fitness without compromising on their style quotient. It is an activity tracker which uses Bluetooth technology to connect with one's phone and track all day activities - steps, distance, calories, sleep and gives the battery back-up of 10 days. The USP of the watch is the ability to send instant mail, SMS and save emergency contacts with the user's GPS location in case of an emergency.

Anupam Mathur, Head - Sales and Marketing, TIMEX Group India Limited said, "At TIMEX our focus has always been to use innovative technologies and offer timepieces that meet the demands of our consumers. TIMEX | BLINK is yet another effort in that direction. We generally give up our style quotient when we are on the go as it is tough to manage both style and fitness together in today's busy schedules. TIMEX believes that its consumers do not have to give up on their style for functionality or vice versa. The watch is for the modern men and women who demand a fit and active lifestyle as well as are always connected on the go. It combines modern technology with TIMEX's trusted craftsmanship and American legacy to give consumers more than just a watch. It is an ideal fit for the men and women who are interested in tracking their daily progress but would not want to sacrifice the beauty of a traditional touch on their wrist, a best of both worlds."

Excited about the partnership, Somnath Meher (Co-founder and CEO), BLINK said, "Both TIMEX and BLINK wanted to build a product that's relevant to the Indian market in terms of functionality; yet have a unique design identity. The SOS feature has been integrated to specifically address a key requirement in our country; while keeping it discreet enough to not affect the overall features and look of the watch. The product nicely encompasses TIMEX's years of experience in watch-craftsmanship; and BLINK's forte in developing connected devices with a technology platform."
