TomTom Multisport GPS Watch Weighs In At A Light 1.9 Ounces

Once you learn the single button menu it is refreshingly simple and easy to use and definitely a watch I'll recommend to first timers.

TomTom Multisport GPS watch is better than expected for ease of use say the testers at the Heart Rate Watch Company.

"I like the fact that you can set the single button, which navigates from all four sides like a joystick, up to click and vibrate," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "Once you learn the single button menu it is refreshingly simple and easy to use and definitely a watch I'll recommend to first timers."

THIN, LIGHT, COMFORTABLE

"The TomTom tipped the scales at 1.9 ounces on our digital postage scale; about 1 ounce lighter than the Suunto Ambit 2," says Squire. He adds, "I think runners and triathletes will enjoy the TomTom GPS watches for their weight, thin profile and swim features."

"What the watch lacks in screen customization or settings it makes up for in sheer simplicity," says Squire. He adds, "It's not going to replace the Garmin Forerunner 910XT for serious elite triathletes but it is a great mid-market watch for those not having the extra $200 that is going to cost."

FASTEST GPS ACQUISITION

"I went cycling and once I had entered cycling the GPS was acquired in about 5 seconds which absolutely floored me," says Squire. He adds, "I'm used to standing around tapping my foot for 45 seconds to a minute with other products."

QUICK RELEASE BIKE MOUNT

"The Tom Tom Multisport GPS watch comes with a bike mount that allows you to pop the watch body out of the band so it is mounted on your handlebars for cycling," says Squire. He adds, "You do have to take the watch band off your wrist to transition to the bike mount so it is not quite as fast as the Garmin 910XT quick release band kit in T1."

SOFTWARE

"The TomTom My Sports application allows you to download your activities to PC or Mac and see your progress," says Squire. He adds, "You can also use MapMyFitness and manually upload to other platforms that accept .tcx, .kml, .gpx and .fit."

LIKES

"I like the lightweight, fit and thin profile of this watch," says Squire. He adds, "I believe it will be a good product for women cyclists, runners and triathletes that are either first timers or looking for a good fitting device."
