IronCloud is a new GPS sports-watch that landed on Indiegogo a few days ago. The campaign was fully funded in only a few hours.
What makes this device so attractive is the promised feature-set. Built as a cheaper alternative to the Garmins and Suuntos, it features pretty much the same specs. There are a plethora of sports modes to choose from, and each of these will provide you with metrics such as running dynamics, physiological metrics and fitness tracking. Plus you get “intuitive AI training technologies” to help you meet your goals.

Other features include a 480mah lithium battery with an incredible 50 days of battery life (in time mode), a colour touch screen with an always on display, 100 meter water resistance, personal training plans, Valencell heart rate sensor and more. There is also a built-in triple navigation system that combines BDS, GPS and GLONASS, as well as support for notifications.
Built for sports, this is a very robust device. IronCloud comes with a Titanium Bezel and sapphire crystal screen designed to withstand the harshest of environments. Furthermore, its transflective display virtually eliminates the need for a backlight under sunny conditions, helping to extend the battery life.
On paper, the watch certainly sounds impressive. IronCloud is available on Indiegogo for at an early-bird price of $369 with delivery set for May 2018. Usual warnings about crowdfunded projects apply.
