TomTom Multi-Sport review: the GPS watch comes good
8 March 2014
Conclusion: : The TomTom Mutli-Sport is a great sports tracking watch and just about has enough features to make it worth leaving your phone behind. Unfortunately, I’ll either have to jump a few pay grades or save frantically if I want to get one.
Excerpt: From the Pebble to the Toq, multi-tasking sports watches have recently gained popularity among the techie set. Among athletes, they’ve been used for over a decade. At their most basic functionality, athletic smart watches measure pace and distance, though most also have an optional heart rate monitor and offer enough technological bells and whistles to make Siri swoon.
Summary: Unfasten that heart-rate monitor from your chest, TomTom’s new GPS fitness watch has one built right into the back. That’s not all it can do, either. T3's Editor-in-chief and resident ultra runner, Kieran Alger, puts the latest sportswatch to the test.
Pros: Built-in heart monitor, Simple interface, Accurate data for many sports
Cons: Can’t track pulse in the pool, No Android app
Conclusion: At this moment in time the TomTom Multi-Sport offers a reasonable running and cycling solution once it’s up and running. But to get the most out of the latter you’ll need the additional sensors and by that point the cost soars into similar territory to its competitors. And that’s a problem, because with an irksome cradle connection to deliver data via USB, no app support, no Ant+ support, sub-par online data handling in TomTom MySports, long GPS-lock waiting times (in...
Pros: Comfortable to wear, latest firmware expands functionality - plenty of options for various sports, open platform support for services like RunKeeper, good enough battery life, waterproof, average pace display useful
Cons: Slow to find GPS connection, need a computer as there's no app connection - dislike cradle-based connection, swimming accelerometer doesn’t seem accurate, TomTom MySports is poor and slow, not a "one button" control, no Ant+ peripheral compatibility

21 October 2013
Summary: Summary: The wearable tech industry is booming and GPS watches are a large part of that growth. People enjoy tracking statistics of their workouts and sharing that data, TomTom allows you the most flexibility on where that data gets shared.
Summary: Test Pulsintresserade motionärer har hittills varit hänvisade till klockor med tillhörande pulsband, men nu behöver det inte vara så längre. Tomtoms nya klocka har inbyggd pulsmätning - nu är det slut med trånga band över bröstkorgen.
Pros: Stabilt armband., Inbyggd, pulsmätare., Inbyggd accelerometer., Kan synka till andra träningsplattformar.
Cons: Jobbig anslutning till webbsajt., Något dyr.
