02 Mar TomTom Runner Sports Watch
If you’re looking for the ultimate motivational gadget to help mum achieve her fitness goals, then look no further than the TomTom Runner GPS Sport Watch. This is more than just a Mother’s Day present – it’s a gift that will also allow mum some precious ‘me time’ and will support her if she’s trying to get fitter!
With this sports watch, all you need to do is to set a distance, time or calorie goal, then check progress on the extra large digital screen. You will receive alerts when you’re at the halfway point, almost there and on hitting the target. The TomTom Runner is incredibly easy to use too – even a complete novice like me found it simple enough to set up!! Simply download the latest version of software onto the watch via here, and once it ready navigate easily through menus with the in-built One-Button Control. Either press up-down-left-right to move through menus.
The integrated QuickGPSFix Technology will know where the satellites are and not have to search for them, allowing you to get out on your run faster. QuickGPSFix helps your watch find your precise location quickly so you can start your run. You must regularly update your watch to ensure this remains fast though!
The watch itself is lightweight and of slim design. The display is very durable, scratch and impact resistance, also the extra large screen makes it very easy to read. You can even use the TomTom Runner indoors whilst on your treadmill. The built-in sensors count your strides so you can monitor your pace and distance. It is also waterproof up to 50 metres, so even if it pouring out of the heavens, you’ve got no excuses to ‘out off’ that run until later! When fully charged, the TomTom Runner will allow up to 10 hours of battery life.
I have been using the TomTom Runner for a few weeks now, and honestly couldn’t be without now. I managed to set it up with ease, and on my first run (more like a brisk walk!) I was very impressed as to how it worked. It’s basically training me and each time I’ve been out since I have beat my previous times – this nifty watch WILL help me get fit!!!
With different watch strap colours including black and turquoise, you can pick a watch to match mum’s taste. The TomTom Runner Sports Watch is priced £99.99 from Sweatshop, Runners Need and John Lewis. You can find our more information from www.tomtom.com.
