TomTom Runner GPS Watch review

 

I really liked what TomTom has done with this GPS sportwatch. This would be great for those who are in the 5k to 10 miler range, and runs mostly 10's & 1's with little variance to their program. The slim design makes this a great all-day wearing watch....

Great looking and slim design Simplified user interface and menus Battery life Fast GPS fix

Doesn’t use heart rate zones Manually set the time Can’t have HR alerts and another goal during same activity Limited workouts options No Bluetooth pairing with smartphones

TomTom Runner GPS Watch Review: A Good First Step

 

We really liked how easy it is to set goals and the intuitive visual feedback you get on how close you are to achieving them. The vibrating alerts are great, too, since we typically run with music. It certainly has more options than most running...

Battery life is very good.

The screen is a bit too reflective The backlight is uneven and fairly dim

TomTom Runner & Multisport GPS Watch In-Depth Review

 

There's some deals on Garmin and Polar gear over the next few weeks, dropping the prices as follows: ( ), ( ), ( ), ( ), ( ). Phew! TomTom announced their first athletic GPS units back in April, but it's as of today that you can finally buy them (well,...

TomTom's Runner GPS Sport Watch ($169) Review

 

TomTom has long been a leader in dedicated car GPS devices and software, and like other GPS-focused firms, has been branching out into wearable GPS and other accessories. The $169 TomTom Runner GPS Watch is the company's second iteration of a GPS sport...

TomTom Runner review

 

Wristy business

Comfortable on the wrist ; QuickGPSFix is accurate ; Good battery life

GPS syncing can be slow ; No built-in USB charging ; TomTom MySports still very basic

TomTom's watch is purely about the fitness focus; there are none of the extra whizzes and bangs you'll be finding in the array of smartwatches looming on the horizon. But with its unobtrusive, lightweight design and respectable price tag, the Runner is...

TomTom Runner review

 

Wearable tech is all the rage at the moment, particularly smartwatches. It's hardly a surprise, then, that plenty of manufacturers want a slice of the pie. But what makes TomTom - the company better known for its satnav devices - believe it has what it...

Comfortable, plenty of options, open platform support for services like RunKeeper, good enough battery life, as a watch it's great

Need a computer (no app connection), need to connect every three days, no real control over historical activities, doesn't use screen real-estate to the fullest, needs a docking station to charge and connect, TomTom MySports is poor, limitations to...

For every feature we don't like about the TomTom Runner there is another feature we do. For everything TomTom has presumably learnt from its hand in the Nike+ SportsWatch, however, it also seems to have unlearnt something else. Which is really...

TomTom Runner

 

Satnav specialists TomTom plots its own route to sports watch domination

Impressive QuickGPSFix technology ; Light, comfortable watch design ; Motivational graphical virtual trainer

Very basic TomTom MySports web tool ; Watch doesn't fit securely inside strap when not worn ; Lacks built-in USB charging

The TomTom Runner is a comfortable, easy to use GPS sports watch with good battery life and a great QuickGPSFix mode that makes it one of the best sports watches to buy for intermediate level runners.
