Fumbling around with your iPod while it's in your pocket or engaging with it full-force may be getting old, especially when you're in the middle of a triathlon. Timex aims to fix that by putting basic iPod controls on its new iControl Ironman watch.

The new watch includes a dongle that attaches to the iPod or iPhone connector, allowing users to play, pause, navigate forward and backward, and turn up the volume remotely from their wrists.

Both Engadget and Gizmodo already have some hands-on experience with the watch, which lists for $125.

Although buying info for the watch is nowhere to be found on Timex.com or Apple.com, the Timex site says that the watch will be available "later next week."
