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


Looking at the TomTom Runner watch first, it's a good first release for TomTom from a device standpoint. Overall, it works well, and accuracy is solid. I LOVE the fast satellite acquisition. I can't state enough just how quick and awesome that...

Simple & Clean interface; Incredibly awesome satellite connectivity speeds; Tracks distance and pace well; Contains Bluetooth Smart support

No ANT+ support, means new purchase of accessories for most; Bluetooth Smart connection not used for phone connectivity; Website is pretty slim right now

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 has gone it alone with its latest GPS tracking watch - the TomTom Runner. With the Nike collaboration over, what's new, and what's improved?

Simple to use ; Rapid to set up

New strap with removable face ; No micro USB charging

TomTom's new GPS sport watches aim for runners, cyclists, swimmers

Wristy business


The TomTom Runner might not be the company's first journey into the wearable tech fitness domain - it previously joined forces with Nike for the Nike+ SportWatch back in 2011 - but it does mark its first solo watch outing. TomTom has clearly seen an...

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.

TomTom Runner


With the TomTom Runner, the satnav giant is getting into the fitness game. After partnering up with Nike to make the Sporstwatch in 2012, it's striking out on its own in a bid to craft the perfect timepiece for joggers and fitness fanatics. Is it worth...

The TomTom Runner isn’t for any fitness fans who’ve invested in hardware before, like a watch, tracker or heart rate monitor. The chances are, you’re all set up, and nothing here will radically improve your workout. If you’ve just bought a pair of...
