Alex Alderson,

Timex has announced two new smartwatches, the Metropolitan R and Metropolitan S. Created in partnership with Amazfit, the official announcement follows the publications of several early reviews of the Metropolitan R, a smartwatch that resembles the Amazfit GTR. By contrast, the Metropolitan S looks remarkably like an Apple Watch.

Both models support more than twenty watch faces from which to choose and run on software developed in part by Huami. Additionally, the smartwatches support GPS and optical heart rate monitoring. Timex mentions that the smartwatches are water-resistant to up to 30 metres too, but it has not offered an IP rating.

Timex has not offered many specifications for the Metropolitan S, either. However, the Metropolitan R has a 1.2-inch AMOLED panel and should last up to 12 days on a single charge.

The Metropolitan R and Metropolitan S will be available to order for US$179 from June 10. Timex states that the two smartwatches will be sold in Canada, the US  and in select retailers across North America.
