TomTom Spark (Runner 2) In-Depth Review

 

It's been about 50 days since I started testing the TomTom Spark watch (also branded as the Runner 2). These were TomTom's new entrant into the market by combining an optical HR sensor with music and GPS tracking capabilities. In many ways the core of...

TomTom Spark Cardio + Music review: Feature-packed for fitness fun

 

TomTom has diverged from personal navigation, seeing the company embrace sports devices in recent years. After an initial partnership with Nike, it stepped out on its own with the Multi-Sport and Multi-Sport Cardio sportswatches, the predecessors to...

Plenty of features, good GPS and heart rate tracking performance, easy to navigate

Music is a little fiddly, dependency on a computer feels dated

The TomTom Spark is a compelling sportswatch offering plenty of features for fitness fans. Importantly, we've found that the results are accurate, with good distance-tracking and very good heart-rate monitoring.

Hands on: TomTom Spark review

 

Street beat

Better design ; Music feature could be very useful ; Heart rate monitor improved

Generalist fitness features very basic ; Most of the music controls are limited to your headphones

TomTom Spark

 

The TomTom Spark Cardio + Music is the satnav maker's third GPS sports watch. Well fourth, if you count its partnership with Nike for the Nike+ SportWatch, which first launched back in 2011.

Slim and comfortable to wear all day ; Quick GPS signal pick up ; Reliable heart rate data

Pairing Bluetooth headphones is temperamental ; Software still needs a lot of work ; Poor battery life when using all features

The TomTom Spark Cardio is a solid GPS sports watch, but it's not quite the ultimate all-in-one device I'd hoped for.

TomTom Spark fitness watch review: No great shakes - The Times of India

 

The TomTom Spark fitness watch is a fitness tracker that despite it's potential can't live up to it's pricetag.

* Big display ; * Effective sleep tracking ; * Rugged

Considering the fact that this watch has been priced at Rs 21,999 (Cardio + Music) its performance is not what we had expected. And it does not look fancy enough to merit that price tag. The less costly versions might be a different case, but the top...

Goondu review: TomTom Spark February 12th, 2016 | by Alfred Siew Mobile 0

 

The Spark could have done a bit more - with an improved desktop interface for music - to make you leave your other gadgets behind without thinking twice.

Nice fitness watch

 

It's an easy to use and set up fitness watch. This was a gift and the receiver is enjoying using it.
