TomTom Watches Review

TomTom was the first to use the reading technology directly from the wrist pulse rate with optical sensors, no longer need to wear an elastic band around the chest heart (which can be annoying if you do a lot of kilometers by bike or racing ). When it came out last year, more than one of the purists running has turned their noses. Accustomed to heart bands and complicated watches, the TomTom Runner Cardio looked like a toy. Too simple, they said, it will not be as precise as Garmin and Polar. After the clock dedicated to the race now comes the TomTom Multi Sport Cardio.


Which costs 30 euro more, and is designed for triathletes, for those swims, rides a bike and runs. Well, I tried the Cardio Multi Sport in the water and running, again with another traditional device with Heart Rate Monitor: The TomTom is very precise. The pulsations are the same as found by the heart rate monitor of the “traditional” devices. Very simple to use with a mouse-button on the bracelet and with a large display easy to see in all conditions. Very good example for people exercising in the pool and must rely tanks. Has a number of advanced features (also it has the swolf, introduced by Garmin for the first time, which measures the efficiency of the stroke). Perfect for those who want the wrist a precise and reliable aid for sports seriously and did not want to go crazy every time with the keys, updates on PCs and too complicated functions. Also nice to see and take in the life of every day thanks to its lightness and to the colored straps that can easily replace, available on the cheap. In the box in addition to the solid device to connect the device to the PC through the USB port, there is also a “cuff” of soft rubber that can be mounted on the handlebars of a racing bike or a mountain bike by inserting the TomTom display Multi Sport. Highly recommended for sports-conscious performance and monitor your heart that do not have time to fiddle around too much with updates and PC. It starts and you go. The TomTom Multi Sport Cardio costs 299 Euros (269 Euros until
30 July 2015, with the reimbursement offered by the manufacturer against the corresponding entry in a race). Materials: 10 Comfort: 10 Functions: 9 Design:10 Quality / price: 9
