The Timex Expedition WS4

Timex Watch

Timex is launching the new Expedition WS4 this month with a planned limited availability and full release by May 2009.  List price is $199. Available in  black, orange, yellow, blue, and white, the WS4 is an interesting re-think of the outdoor watch, using a much larger screen with a wide aspect ratio. Here are the specs from Timex PR:

  • Composite case, stainless steel bezel, rubber or ‘expandable elastic’ strap.
  • Altimeter, barometer, thermometer and compass.
  • Altitude alarms.
  • Graphical display of altitude and barometer.
  • Weather forecast with alerts.
  • Digital compass.
  • Dual timezones.
  • 100 hour stopwatch.
  • 100 hour countdown timer.
  • 99 lap count.
  • Daily, weekday, weekend, and weekly alarms — nice!
  • Backlit with Indiglo, as well as ‘night mode.’ By that, I think they mean a system like Casios, where the correct wrist movement lights up the screen without pressing a button.
  • Water resistant to 50m (150ft), which actually is pretty minimal for an outdoor watch.

The above represent an incremental improvement from many existing outdoor watches; the WS4 really shines via the addition of the wide multi-format screen, which shows lots of information at once. We’ll certainly be getting one of these in for review as soon as they’re available.

The press release has high-res stills of the orange and white, and this fuzzy shot of the six models:

I like the looks of the blue and white, and can’t wait to get my hands on one.
