Timex recently unveiled the Ironman One GPS+, a connected watch for athletes. The stand-out feature of the One GPS+ is its touch display. Timex selected Qualcomm's Mirasol technology, which offers an always-on experience, high outdoor visibility, and low power consumption all at the same time. Qualcomm uses Mirasol technology in its own Toq smartwatch. The Timex One GPS+ comes with a free year of AT&T cellular service and can be used to send text messages without requiring a cellphone. The majority of today's smartwatches lack stand-alone cellular connections and messaging capabilities. The One GPS+ also supports Bluetooth and GPS for live location tracking; includes an on-board music player; and is water resistant up to 50 meters. The Timex Ironman One GPS+ costs $399 and can be preordered via Timex's web site.

Cellular Connections and Messaging Capabilities?

So this uses a SIMcard? or does that work?
One-year Mobile data service subscription from AT&T included

SIM card it seems.
It's like a kindle.
