TomTom Runner GPS Watch Runner Review

TomTom Runner GPS WatchThis  form of wearable technology is not TomTom’s first invention, in the past, TomTom was partnering up with top brands like Nike to release high end wearable sports technologies, but this time, they have decided to create their out product line and TomTom Runner GPS Watch is among the top sports watches on the market today.

 

 

However, this watch has its pros and cons and we shall see below, but as a consumer, I advise you to analyze your options very well and buy what fits your needs.

 

PROS:

  • Bold text and wide screen which makes it easy to read data while in motion.
  • This watch is light and comfortable to wear.

 

CONS:

  • It’s a basic sports watch, not as fancy as Garmin sports watches.
  • It does not have a USB charging port.

 

DESIGN & TECHNICAL DETAILS:

  • Wide Screen:- If you have ever owned a sports watch before, you will agree with me that the size of the screen is very essential, you don’t want to cut down on your speed while running simply because you need to read running stats. With that in mind, this TomTom Runnner GPS watch’s wide screen displays both graphical and digital data in bold, making it easy to read while you’re running. The actual dimension of this screen is 1.37 inches.
  • Different Colors:- Unlike most brands, TomToms keeps the price of different colors the same. When I compare this to Nike and Garmin, I fail to get the point why those two brands put different price tag on each color. We all have different tastes especially when it comes to colors, however, the color factor should not be used to determine price. This TomToms running watch comes in 5 different colors and these include; Pink / Black / Grey / Deep Blue / Turquoise, so you can choose what is best for you.
  • Adjustable Strap:- By default, all sports watches have adjustable straps which makes it easy to wear the watch. This adjustable strap gives you the opportunity to adjust the watch to a desired fitting which makes you comfortable.
  • One-Button Control:- One of the most important things on a running watch is navigation, you have be in position to navigate the menu and features of that watch easily. TomTom has put only one control button on this watch, it will help you scroll through the menu easily.
  • Graphical Training Partner:- You will get motivated by the graphical data displayed on this watch’s large screen. This will improve on your performance and endurance while on the road.

  • Easy to use:- We have already seen that the watch uses only one big control button which simplifies the navigation of the menu. It does not matter how fast you’re running.
  • Challenge yourself:- Many of us have no training partners, so you might end up giving up while on the road and that will affect your fitness level. But having no physical training partner should not worry you anymore, because you can set a challenge for yourself using TomTom GPS running watch. After setting a goal, you will start racing against yourself and the end results will be tremendous.
  • Scratch Resistant Display: – Not only does the display show results in bold fonts, but it’s also scratch resistant, so your watch will look new all the time. If a sports watch’s screen is not scratch resistant, it will get old very quickly and the screen will start fading out.
  • Vibration Alerts: – It is time you stay focused on running and pay less attention to your TomTom Gps running watch. You can schedule alerts so that you don’t get distracted all the time. You will hear beeps if you want too, of feel vibrations on each alert.
