TOMTOM MULTI-SPORT CARDIO GPS WATCH
Using a TomTom GPS Sport Watch is the easiest way to improve your running, cycling and swimming.
The all new TomTom Multi-Sport Cardio gives you real time running information when you need and a built-in heart rate monitor so you can get more out of every run.
Built-in Heart Rate Monitor
Get accurate heart rate information without the need for a separate chest strap.
Train in your optimal Heart Rate Zone
Select a zone to match your training goal and always know whether you need to speed up or slow down.
Real-time activity information
See real-time activity information at a glance. Track your distance, time, pace, speed and calories burnt as you run, cycle or swim.
TRAIN IN YOUR OPTIMAL HEART RATE ZONE
Heart rate monitoring is the single most accurate means to understand how your body is responding to exercise.
Select a zone to match your training goal and always know whether you need to speed up or slow down.
For running and cycling you can train in one of five intensity zones:
5. Sprint: mostly used as part of interval training.
4. Speed: high tempo training to improve your speed and fitness.
3. Endure: moderate to high tempo training to improve your lung and heart capacity.
2. Fat Burn: moderate tempo training, great for weight loss.
1. Easy: easy tempo training, mostly used for warm-up and cool down.
During your run or cycle, easily see your heart rate, and receive alerts to help you stay in the right zone.
A full screen graphic shows you what percentage of your run or cycle you spent in each heart rate zone.
Cycling and Swimming
If you use your TomTom Multi-Sport Cardio while cycling, there are two ways you can measure your heart rate.
1. If you are wearing the watch on your wrist, you can use the built-in Heart Rate Monitor.
2. If you place the watch module in the bike dock, you will need a separate Heart Rate Monitor chest strap accessory.
It is not possible to measure your heart rate while swimming.
TRAIN WITH FULL SCREEN GRAPHICS
Race yourself: Compare your current activity with past performances. See in “real-time” where you are compared to your best or last activity so you can continue to improve.
Challenge yourself: See that you are on track to achieve your goals. Set a distance, time or calorie goal and check your progress in a simple full screen graphic.
Set your goal and receive alerts when you’re halfway there, almost there and when you have achieved your goal.
Interval training: Improve speed and cardio fitness with Interval Training. Start with a warm up, then alternate bursts of high and low intensity exercise as many times as you like, and finish with a cool down. Each interval can be either a fixed time or distance.

Pros: "Automatically" loads to MapMyRun (be sure to use your MapMyRun I.D. when you register on TomTom MySports)
Latest update says it automatically loads to Endomondo and STRAVA. I have not verified.
Stats (exercise, calories, time) transfer to MyFitnessPall and other apps, if linked. (the actual track does not)
New freestyle mode doesn't mess up stats for exercise if you just want a GPS tracker.
Built in heart rate monitor (no annoying chest strap like Garmin Forerunner)
Works indoors on a treadmill.
Large display for one primary stat (changeable during the activity)
Cons: My first one had a defective Heart Rate Monitor and long times (up 2 minutes) to lock on GPS.
TomTom MySports app for iPhone/iPad is COMPLETELY USELESS without an internet connection.
"Ultra Slim" claim is relative. It's a GPS watch and everybody will know you are wearing a GPS watch.
No Android support yet.
Tiny display for secondary stats (almost unreadable while running).
Comes with a USB cable, but no charger. You have to use your own USB charger or a computer.
If you hear about problems with this watch once you start sweating, they are true but do not fear. No need to blame the user for wearing it incorrectly or not downloading the latest firmware. I downloaded the latest firmware and I wore mine per the instructions (above the wrist, tight enough that you can't get a finger between the strap and your wrist) and I had the same problems that others described. Measurement would drop out on the watch once I was sweaty with heart rate above 150bpm. Some humid days, it would not work at all. The the heart rate would show -- on the watch and a horizontal line would show up on the TomTom MySports graph at whatever HR it stopped working. Fearing this watch was not ready for prime time, I almost just returned it but I exchanged it instead. The replacement has worked consistently in terms of the HRM.
My first one also had problems locking its GPS signal. Yes, this was even after making sure I had the latest update and loaded the GPS quick fix info. My replacement seems to pick up a signal in 5-30 seconds on average.
The TomTom MySports app is COMPLETELY USELESS without an internet connection. It is basically a Bluetooth to Internet portal to load your activity to the MySports website. You cannot see your stats (beyond date, distance and duration) if you are not connected to the internet. You cannot see your GPS path, pace/speed, heart rate/heart rate zones, elevation/gain, steps per minute, calories, etc. Maybe not a big deal to others with a constant data connection, but if you have an iPad that needs WiFi, don't plan on going some remote place and seeing your stats when you get back from your run. You can transfer the data from your watch to the iPad via bluetooth, *** but you cannot VIEW the data that you JUST GOT DONE TRANSFERRING to the iPad***. It is sitting there on the iOS device waiting to get uploaded to the website, but you will not be able to see ANYTHING about your excercise until you get an internet connection. Just as bad (or even worse), even if you upload your track to the website and download it back to your iOS device, it will disappear once you navigate away from viewing that specific track without an internet connection.
Example: Run track XYZ using your TomTom watch
Come back and transfer the track from your watch to your iOS device via bluetooth.
You cannot see the track details beyond date, distance and duration.
Connect to internet and it updloads it to MySports.
While still connected, you open the track and view the stats, they are there.
Disconnect from internet and take your iPad someplace to show your stats.
If you never navigated away from that track, your stats are still there.
If you navigate away to show stats for track ABC, you cannot see stats for track ABC.
If you navigate back to show stats for track XYZ (which you previously downloaded and viewed), you can't see them.
"Automatic" upload can be deceiving. You have to open the app on your device and wait for the watch to connect. I does not appear that anything will automatically transfer in the background.
You might wonder why I gave a good rating after that long rant about the app. The review is supposed to be about the watch, not the app, so I only dinged it one star for the app. Also, I suspect that most people that buy this watch would be using it with their iPhone which could always have the necessary data connection depending on your loacation and provider. The watch itself seems to be great after I exchanged the one with the bad HRM. I expect it will only get better. I can't be the only one that hates the internet problem with the app, so hopefully they change that in the future. This thing has all kinds of features that I have not tried yet. You can race yourself from a previous track. You can have it keep you in your desired heart rate zone for fat burn/endurance/speed, etc. Each stat that is displayed on the watch is adjustable. The top two are locked while you are in your activity and are almost too small to read while you are running. You would have to hold your wrist pretty still to read them. The bottom one is very large and you can read any stat you want at any time on that one by pressing the up/down arrows to cycle through all the stats, which is very easy to do while running.
The only problem I've encountered involves Android compatibility. I currently use a Galaxy Note Edge with Android 4.4.4 (KitKat). No matter what I've done and no matter what workarounds I employ, the HR monitor will not pair with the device. In order to sync with the TomTom MySports app, I had to pair the device with my iPad (no problems syncing on the iOS side). The device pairs automatically after every workout. This is extremely convenient and helpful. I have contacted TomTom about the issue and am hoping for a resolution in the near future. In the meantime, the iPad resource will work.
If I had to do it all over again, I'd definitely still purchase this product.
The only problem seems to be with the Swim mode; Problem #1 the distance is NOT accurate and there doesn't seem to be any way to "calibrate" like you can on the treadmill mode etc. Problem #2 The Swim mode only offers pool sizes in yards, not meters. My pool is 50M, but the watch doesn't allow you to adjust to the correct number of yards for that size pool.
Overall - Problem #3 after your workout is complete there isn't a way (if there is, i haven't figured it out yet) to review your stats - besides plugging the watch into your computer and logging into the My Sports website. So basically, unless you scrolled through all your stats before finalizing your workout, you just have to wait.
I'm hoping TomTom will have updates in the near future that can correct these issues, because the watch has great potential!
While the watch is great, the quality is unfortunately piss poor compared to every single watch brand out there.
I also LOVE that you can tap the right side of the screen and it lights up. I row competitively and my coach requires us to track our heart rates for workouts. I was thrilled to ditch the stinky chest strap and rock this stylish watch instead.
Definitely worth the extra few books for the built in heart rate.
Top reviews from other countries
It often takes a while to find my heart rate and will lose it often. I wear it tight and probably have all the most recent updates installed. I don't want to spend my time updating software, I bought it because I thought it could count how many times my heart beats.
I have a regular 4 mile run. I'd like to look at a simple measure of fitness such as how many heart beats I can get the run done in, however the watch will spend between 2 and 20 minutes reporting cadence (of around 180) instead of my heart rate, despite it picking up my resting heart rate before the start of the run. It means when I look back at a run my average HR is way higher due to all the cadence figures that are in there.
I have never used it for heart rate zones, I can't imagine this is feasible.
The GPS works pretty well though.
She has now used this watch for a week and is very impressed, the watch easily connects to GPS and is easy to use. She loves the heart rate recovery and racing features and after a week of use has only now had to charge it.
All in all it was a good buy and I am now looking at buying one for myself.
All in all, if you are after a multisport watch that tracks your heart rate so you can train effectively I would recommend this watch.
I've only been running 4 months so this review is based on what I needed at the time of purchase and professional runners may require more features.
GPS doesn't work if your inside and It can sometimes take a little longer than you want for the GPS to pick up your location and but once it has, it doesn't loose you (It hasn't for me anyway).
I love all the features it comes with, especially the breakdown of where your heart rate zones are and the fact you can change the display settings. It's only a shame it can't monitor your heart rate when swimming. (Not sure if there is even a watch that can).
Also great online features and software to keep a close eye on your progress.
Overall, I found it takes some getting use to as some icons on the screen are very small but once you've figured it out. Works brilliantly well.
