TomTom – New Adventurer Model Announced

TomTom Adventurer BlackOrange ALT midresTomTom have just announced a new product-variant building on the evolution of the Runner-Runner2/Spark-Runner3/Spark3 line.

The ADVENTURER model boasts a good feature set in a modern-looking shell.

The ADVENTURER is essentially the same product under the skin as the just-announced RUNNER3/SPARK3 but with the addition of the following:

  • Extra sports modes – hiking, snowboarding, skiing, that kind of thing
  • A notably improved battery life in hiking mode, realised by reduced GPS usage…cool!
  • Navigation/Routing/Sharing/Exploring – new to the Runner3/Spark 3 and able to upload/follow GPX routes as well as a breadcrumb trail. You can also share routes with your fellow TomTom owners.
  • Barometric altimeter

runner3-spark3-adventurer-navigationOne of the differentiators for TomTom is integrated music which is actually stored on the device and not a smartphone. Optical Heart Rate also allows HR monitoring without a HR strap. these features were on the Runner 2/SPARK model and so are already well-proven in the market over the last year. Expect this watch to work properly! (Well, more properly than many others :-) ).

Available to buy: October for GBP250/US$350

  1. Could be interested in this, if only for the battery life, fancy doing a ultra next year. Can you post workout change the workout type from hiking to running?

    • ACTIVITY TYPE can be changed in TomTom mysports after the exercise. however hiking does not yet appear there as a ‘sport’ and will only appear if you have registered an ADVENTURER device I am told
