The wearable industry is growing and smart products hold sway in this aspect with Apple's Watch series at the helm.

The company best known for its plastic kid's watches has stepped up its offerings with the Timex Ironman R300, which touts an impressive 25-day battery life and a low $120 price. It packs a touchscreen display and offers features such as an always-on display, GPS, speed and distance tracking, phone calls, and the ability to upload workout data - in the past.

The built in heart-rate sensor works together with the Global Positioning System tracking to monitor your activities, and the battery capabilities will ensure you can track even the most arduous and long training sessions. Timex is also very keen to advertise the guided coaching feature: "send workouts directly to your watch, including Jared Ward's 12-week running program". The company also claims that Ironman R300's battery will last up to 25 days, as long as the Global Positioning System is used for 20 hours. The Ironman 300 Global Positioning System can do smartphone notifications as well, and like any good "sports-first" wearable device, it's capable of easily surviving water immersion up to 30 meters, which means you don't need to leave the smartwatch at home before going to the pool for a quick swim. It comes with a touch-screen display, built-in Global Positioning System, speed and distance tracking features and if all is true, the Timex Ironman R300 will also support some level of smart notifications as well. The watch uses soft silicone rubber strap and is available in Black and Grey straps.
