Although there are many pedometers on the market that can help with monitoring the amount of steps that are taken, (we've been told to try for 10,000 steps daily), not all are easy to operate. Also, for the all around athlete or just someone who wants to...

It's a really nice first stab at this from TomTom. Once they clean the Runner up a little bit, it's going to be good. For now, though, it's not quite...

The TomTom Runner isn’t for any fitness fans who’ve invested in hardware before, like a watch, tracker or heart rate monitor. The chances are, you’re all set up, and nothing here will radically improve your workout. If you’ve just bought a pair of...

While TomTom's technology also powers the older Nike+ SportsWatch, the GPS maker is looking to make a name for itself in the fitness category. The TomTom Runner GPS watch is a strong first effort, combining a light and water-resistant design with an...

The TomTom Runner might not be the company's first journey into the wearable tech fitness domain - it previously joined forces with Nike for the Nike+ SportWatch back in 2011 - but it does mark its first solo watch outing. TomTom has clearly seen an...

For every feature we don't like about the TomTom Runner there is another feature we do. For everything TomTom has presumably learned from its hand in the Nike+ SportsWatch, however, it also seems to have unlearnt something else. Which is...

TomTom (the GPS so nice they named it twice) has decided to get into the crowded-but-plenty-of-room-for-improvement running watch game. The company has been making GPS devices for cars for years, so you'd think it'd be able to make a pretty good running...

Over the last six weeks I've been using the units pretty extensively, and by now have a pretty solid grasp on how they work. Because I want to be transparent about my reviews, once my evaluation period with the TomTom units has elapsed, I send it back to...

My usual running companion is a Nike+ SportWatch GPS, which is powered by TomTom. So, I was keen to see how well TomTom's own GPS watch fared.TomTom's Runner consists of a watch module and a strap. The watch module is just 11.5mm thick and can be...

Après son partenariat avec Nike pour la montre Nike+ SportWatch GPS lancée en 2011, TomTom entre en son nom propre sur un marché, qui, pour lui, n'est donc pas nouveau. Fort de ses premières expériences, le leader européen du GPS livre une montre...

International Review By tu.no on 60

TomTom Runner er rykende fersk og har noen barnesykdommer. Det samme gjelder i enda større grad MySports Connect. Trøsten er at hardwaren er god, og at softwaren skal oppgraderes. Klokkas største fortrinn er brukervennligheten og den grafiske...

International Review By techgoondu.com on

If I reviewed the TomTom Runner GPS watch based only on how fast it made me run, it would score top marks. With this sports watch strapped to my wrist one afternoon, I ran like no tomorrow, clocking a speed I had not seen in years.Now, six minutes a...
