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
