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
