Excellent multisport watch
Reviewed By Rich, 13 Jan 2014

As far as I know this is TomTom's first solo effort in GPS sports watches having teamed up with Nike previously. They have clearly learnt a lot as this really is a great sports watch.

Pros
- it's very comfortable and has a good slimline fit
- UI is clear and very readable
- navigation of stats/functions on the watch works a treat with the 4 way button
- hardware is excellent and the barometric altimeter appears to work well
- supplied software is great too, and TomTom seem to be regularly adding features and fixes via regular firmware updates
- options to automatically export data to multiple fitness websites (and formats) is a HUGE plus; you are not tied exclusively to TomTom's site
- support is great and TomTom appear to be really active on their support forums helping users out and asking for feedback and feature requests (and acting on them)
- removable/exchangeable strap, supplied handlebar mount and usb dock all work really well
- satellite acquisition is the quickest of any sports watch I've owned by quite a large margin

Cons
- to get the barometric altimeter you have to buy the complete package with cadence and HR sensors
- altitude/elevation data is only available when you upload your exercise data, there's no way to see it on the phone while you're running

Overall I really like it - such a huge step up from my Garmin in terms of usability and freedom (re data transfer). I can't comment on battery life as I've only done two runs and a short bike ride, but reviews are very positive.

I've got high hopes for the iPhone companion app which is due to be released in Jan 2014. If TomTom keep the data transfer open (i.e. not tied exclusively to their site), keep adding software features (a hiking mode with altitude/long&lat and compass display would be fantastic) and basically keep doing things the way they have been, then this going to be hard to beat.

I've got some big running events coming up this year so we'll have to see if I'm still loving it after 8 hours in the mountains (and if the battery can handle it)!
