- Watch is COMFORTABLE. Once I figured out the right fit (which took a couple tries) I wore this thing for over 24 hrs straight and barely noticed it was there! The band is soft and flexible, and has an abnormally large number of possible adjustments. There is zero reason for anyone not to find the perfect fit. Also, with the unique way that this band secures on the wrist, I had ZERO worry that it was going to come off, and there is no annoying floppy watch band tail.
- Features, features FEATURES! Sleep tracking, activity tracking, mileage, GPS, and MP3 BT playback!! Are you kidding me? The best part is that they all work! The ability to leave my phone at home, have a full featured GPS watch, listen to music and recieve audio prompts from the watch.... it's incredible. Oh, and heart rate monitoring! ... let's stop here for a moment.
When I bought this, I read a lot of reviews first. One of the things that I felt like I was compromising on, was the lack of 24hr HR monitoring (like the Fitbit). The first time I connected the phone to the computer, there was an update for the watch. This watch DOES have 24he HR monitoring!! As for the HR monitor itself, I found it to be far more accurate than I expected. I'm forever ditching my HR strap! Kudos to TomTom.
I have yet to try the gym/weight training feature, other users have complained of HR accuracy in that mode, though some say it was fixed in an update. After I try it out, I'll update my review if I think there is a reason to.
- INTERFACE: For some the GPS antenna nub with 4-way directional controls is clunk and unnecessary, for me, I love it. This could be because I am a TomTom return customer, so I am used to it. Touch screens are great, but when you are sweaty or have gloves on they can be unpredictable. For this reason I prefer the buttons. The use of the menus themselves is intuitive and easy to use. If you have never used a TomTom before, it will take you a few minutes to figure it out, but once you get it, it's great!
The screen itself is black with contrasting shades of white/grey which makes this extremely easy to read, even in very bright direct sunlight. The screen on the Spark is bigger than on my Runner, so it's even easier to read/use. The pure depth of the information available to you, and the options on what is displayed while working out is staggering. I have not used an app or other watch with this much info so readily available.
- The APP!: So, being a TomTom owner since 2014, I have seen the progress that has been made. The app today is fantastic, but not perfect. I've heard that other fitness trackers have better apps, and I've also heard that TomTom is working on a huge update to their own. I'm not sure if either of these are true, but TomTom's steady progress here has them poised to be the best. That said, the current app and website offer a great deal of customization and options for setting goals, challenging yourself, and keeping track of trends, metrics and other data.
Nothing is perfect, and the TomTom is no exception. Here are a few things that I think TomTom fell short on:
- Battery life. I had the same complaint about my TomTom Runner. I'm not sure there is much to be done here, though. I think that this is just an issue of size vs features vs technology. There just aren't batteries advanced enough to handle the sheer number of sensors/features this watch has and give great battery life. The daily wear and activity tracking life is advertised at about 5 days. Only having this for one day, I am still guessing that is about accurate. I will update if I find this to be different. I went on a 1 hour walk yesterday, using the freestyle mode, and could almost watch the battery meter drain. My hope to use this device on a day hike is pretty much shot, unless I take a portable battery pack and the charging cable. My hope is for the next generation watch to greatly improve on this.
- Phone notifications: There aren't any. Yet. I read a few reviews from people who went to the device launch and they said that this feature is coming in a future update. I look forward to that.
- Watch Band (maybe). While I love the comfort and security of the band, I do have some concerns about the tabs that secure the band. The plastic nubs seem like they might be easily broken. This could be irrelevant if they are stronger than they look.
BOTTOM LINE: I have worn FitBits, the Polar Loop and TomToms. Sometimes at the same time. I've also had to wear chest straps, carry my phone or an iPod. I always felt like I was trapping on way too much gear just to work out. Yet, I loved all the feedback that these thing offered. I'm happy to say that the TomTom Spark Cardio + Music has erased the need for all of that. Now, it's just my watch and bluetooth headphones. This is hands down the single best piece of wearable workout gear I have ever used, and with updates, it's only going to get better.
I am NOT a paid reviewer, nor did I receive any discounts ore requests for a review. I'm just a guy who did a LOT of research before buying. I'm always looking for the best bang for my buck. I don't always win, but this time I did. I HIGHLY recommend this product.
I hate carrying things. I’m the gal who will forget my jacket or purse in the booth at a restaurant. Pockets in women’s clothes are not large enough to accommodate a phone, and will look like an ugly bulge if you do. Also, I’m afraid the phone will drop out of a pocket. Once, I tried an arm band to hold my i-pod (and in theory you could use one for a phone) and liked it at first. But the tan lines were crazy, and it started rubbing in a bad way because of sweat—so I loved the arm band less. Also I couldn’t see my upper-arm well enough to skip songs or skip the volume, especially without breaking stride. And the number one reason arm bands don’t work, is eventually mine got bigger and became a leg band, then when it grew large enough to become a belt, I tossed it. So I bought a legit, moisture-wicking running belt to carry my phone. I like it for walking around the city hands-free, but for running it has too much weight bouncing around, and I’m paranoid my phone will fall out. So the option of just wearing a watch and stringing cordless headphones through my hat—awesome!!! The number one, greatest thing over every other tracker is my ability to run/sport hands-free. I absolutely LOOOOVVED running with nothing in my hands and no cords, but still having all the data and my tunes!
The band is about the same size as the one I bought in order to have my FitBit Zip on my wrist. And the TomTom’s band is negligibly larger than the Garmin’s. What makes it superior, is the fact the band goes through a watch-like mechanism and the loop latches down, the through end latches down, and there is a third latch that locks the band in place. My FitFit arm band just hooked one end to the other and had a cheap little plastic portion that went over that. The Garmin was slightly better then my FitBit watch because it pops in stiffly, then twists to lock. The Garmin will break nails trying to un-do the lock though, so I didn’t like that. The TomTom’s is the most secure. I am not afraid it will come open at any time. Also, just like the FitBit, you can trade out the band for fancy colors or when your first one looks a little worse for wear. There are a lot less options right now then there were for FitBit, so I’m hoping for some power yellow, or patterns to come on the market soon.
The face of the tracker is very large. This is great for display purposes, because I can see it without breaking my stride too much during a run, whereas I had to really peer at the tiny FitBit Zip and sideways Garmin displays. This is only OK for wearability, so I put the face on the inside of my wrist so every outfit doesn’t scream, “fitness nerd!” and it is a little. . . Less. And yes, it still seems to track my heart rate accurately worn that way.
Speaking of the display, I didn’t think I would like the color of the numbers on the TomTom. My Garmin’s digital with backlight had made me pretty happy. I compare these to white road paint—they just sort of glow, but not by indiglow. And it goes without saying the tiny, unlighted/unglowing digital font in the FitBit fares worst—you have to peer at it in every scenario. Aside from the reflecti-color, the font is very large on the TomTom, and if you really can’t handle not having light, you just hold your hand over the face for a few seconds and it will light up. I found I usually don’t have to go to that extent, but it hasn’t been a nuisance when I’ve had to. Also, I think there might be a setting that let’s you trade all-the-time backlighting for battery drainage.
As for battery, I have not had a problem. I wear my TomTom all day as a pedometer and watch as much as for fitness tracking. It lasted a 12 hour work day just fine. My FitBit was constantly needing a new battery (like every 2-3 weeks) and the garmin was supposed to last a year. I just charge my TomTom through the night while I sleep and it’s worked out OK for me.
The music—is awesome! I used to run with my i-pod. It was one of the thin ones and help 16GB so it wasn’t terrible. But I had to hold something, and my headphone cord had to be tucked through my clothes. Then, the cord was too short for a full arm swing, so I was constantly fighting to keep my arm swing from pulling the ear buds out of my ears. This was a horrible nuisance on long runs and on the timed, sprints absolutely slowed me down. How can you sprint your fastest without having a full arm? And you either had to slow down to re-tuck the headphones in the top of the sports bra or just continue on with one ear bud getting pulled out. My TomTom, isn’t that different of a set up from the i-pods. I physically hook it to my computer in the same way. I pick some (but not all) playlists from i-tunes, which I had been doing with my i-pod anyway. The display will accommodate more than 6, less than 14 playlists (I can’t remember exactly) and the music itself can’t exceed 3 GB. My i-pod held 16GB, but I rarely used all of those songs on my run, and I can just soup up my “workout” playlist if I want more variety. I bought the combo TomTom/headphones package for just-in-case, because I wanted to be certain I could play my tunes—because let’s be real, this tracker’s main selling point is its ability to play music. Then, all I had to do was navigate “up” one screen on my watch and hold the middle button of the headphones until it flashed red/blue. They paired very quickly and that was that. The headphones screw into your ears and I just pull them through my running hat in case the buds fall out of my ears during a run (there has never been even a threat of that). I can play any individual playlist straight through, shuffle any individual playlist, or shuffle all the music I imported. The sound is just as good as my i-pod. If I am not feeling a song that comes up, I can navigate “up” on the watch then “right” to skip, “left” to re-play. The only thing I don’t like about that is, IF you’re already in the middle of tacking an activity, you have to go back passed the start menu for said-activity to change the song. That ends the activity and once, I was in the middle of a timed mile and accidently ended my time/distance by skipping a song. Now, I just use the controls on the headphones—hold the front button for 2 sec to change the song without messing up my running stats.
The data does pretty much everything I want and more, and I read numerous times the heart monitor is the most accurate on the market—and bonus, no chest strap required! You can even see your bpm while you’re running and on a graph with your speed/pace later. And there is a setting for you to run in a certain heart rate zone with voiceovers that make sure you do.
The sleep tracker is not really a thing. It pretty much gives you the hours slept and leaves any other information out. The Garmin showed movement and told me when I was in light sleep vs. deep sleep with a graph and I found that very useful. This one just wants to name sleep as a feature—so I just charge my TomTom to my computer at night instead. To improve the sleep function the need to track movement and give me graphs like the Garmin. And allow me to write notes on the night like the Garmin. Oh, and have a smaller band to trade out for sleep purposes, because I slept fine in this, but it could have been more comfortable. Never mind—if you want in-depth sleep analysis get a tracker specifically for that, because even the Garmin, which was better, was still not that informative. Or best yet, get a sleep study.
I like that it will sync automatically to the phone app or I can do it at the computer. I really HATED having to always manually sync the Garmin, because my FitBit had always auto-synced if I was in proximity to my computer. So the TomTom’s syncing has been working out. The only thing I like less about the TomTom, is the MySports computer program isn’t as souped up as my FitBit program had been. For instance, I can’t invite friends to see their progress and I can’t track (or sync) food and water. If I could see my mate’s and mom’s step count and link MySports to LoseIt—my TomTom would be absolutely perfect for me.
My favorite thing about FitBit—the huge array of replacement bands and the data-heavy social website. My favorite thing about the Garmin—the tone telling me I had been sedentary too long . But don’t let the TomTom’s mediocre reviews scare you off. If you hate carrying things (even a phone) and love exercising with music I highly recommend this tracker!
The more I read about this watch, the more I was excited about this watch. It has more than lived up to my expectations!
I have owned it for over 2 weeks now.
I've only charged it once since the first charge when I got home with it.
The battery lasts me well over a week, even with using it 3-5 days a week for workouts.
I was able to pair it to my Jabra Mini v0.3.0 earpiece with no problems. Works great with my music.
It really is simple to use, which is why it probably doesn't come with a manual.
This watch has all of the features I was wanting in a fitness watch.
My favorite features:
-built-in Heart Rate Monitor
-Water Resistant to do swim workouts
-and many more features!
This watch is perfect for the avid fitness person looking to ditch all the devices. I love that I don't need to carry a pedometer, heart rate monitor, and my phone to track all of my fitness. I can workout in peace now with only one device, my watch!
Honestly, I love that it does not do my phone notifications. I envy the Apple Watch as a smart watch with notifications, but I wanted a device that can detach me from my phone.
I love that I can workout without my phone to track my workout.
If you are not a fitness person, don't buy this watch as it doesn't do notifications and apps.
If you are a true fitness person, this watch is perfect for you!
