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.
Conclusion: TomTom Multi-Sport GPS Watch for triathletes tracks running, swimming, and bicycling, indoors and out. It's not as cutting edge as some products that include strapless heart rate monitoring, but it's a good device with a fantastic design.
Pros: Tracks running, walking, bicycling, swimming. Exquisitely large LCD display. Easy-to-press buttons. GPS enabled. Lightweight, breathable band. Good battery life. Includes bike mount. Works indoors and outdoors.
Cons: Watch strap may flap in the pool. No built-in, strapless heart-rate monitor (chest strap costs extra). Difficulty connecting to MapMyFitness account in testing.

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
