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

One 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?

    1. 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
