Customize View

watch The display adapts to the choices made by the user and some fields are customizable. Nevertheless, we can modify and adapt the 2 fields present in the far right screen. These two fields are configurable for each of the running modes. (Free training (None) or specific mode (Goal, Intervals, Tours, Zones, Race, Stopwatch))

These two fields can take the following values:

  • clock
  • duration
  • distance
  • allure
  • average pace
  • speed
  • average speed
  • calories
  • cardiac frequency
  • heart rate zone

These fields are also those displayed in the center of the screen during exercise.Navigating between each other via the “up” and “down” buttons. The two fields at the top allow you to keep in eye views. Personally, I put speed and clock.

l’application mobile : TomTom Runner Cardio: App

When TomTom Runner launched last year, the only way that you can use to synchronize data was by the TomTom Web MySports tool. Since TomTom has added support for the smartphone application, although it is now available for users of iPhone and Android. On Android, the app does not work with versions 4 and 5 of the OS, so I did not test. With this application, you can synchronize data from your watch with the Bluetooth of your mobile. The pairing process is rather simple, it is necessary to type a small digital code to establish the connection.

The application is pretty basic and concerns over the filing of your data shows that the use of mobile as a recording medium. There is a simple drop-down menu to the left, where you can see the activities, account information, and look at the state and especially update GPSQuick data. This is essential in search of speed GPS data before output.

synchronize its activities with TomTom My Sport

Just plug the watch on his dock for synchronization to occur. Warning to have chosen well before the output files and activity sharing sites. It is not possible to start a posteriori this action. So if you decide to add synchronization with Strava for example, you can add your historical past outputs other than through a manual import. Based on this premise, I invite you to also export files to .FIT format on your computer to keep a history shareable elsewhere TomTom MySports (no way to export these outputs) and MapMyFitness. (Like in the free version)

Update the TomTom Runner Cardio

When a new update is available, you can either accept and update the watch, or leave and continue using the watch in its current version. While the latter is possible, I recommend to update the watch. The update will not delete the records stored in the watch.

Orientation

In the absence of a magnetic compass in the watch, it is difficult to provide guidance functions. Indeed, the compass lets you know in which direction we are oriented to a specific location.Without compass, the watch must be able to extrapolate a direction of travel. Thus worked the first mobile phones before 2009. The watch processor must be low power to enable this operation.

So there is no orientation feature or location on the TomTom Runner Cardio.

Precision of capturing the heart rate

To compare the capture of the heart rate, I made two types of output: the split and output at constant speed on a flat portion with a tomtom Runner Cardio left wrist, and Suunto Ambit 2 right wrist (and the Fenix ​​2 in the pocket). The Fenix ​​Ambit 2 and 2 being connected to an ANT + sensor Suunto.

This is an extract data in CSV format for TomTom Runner Cardio and Suunto Ambit to Excel. I realized this test 5 times and I present here a chart that best represents what I observed: We can see that the 2 curves overlap quite well. Apart from recording early mistakes for 2 ambit, the difference between the two measures is rather low. Apart from a slight delay alignment measurements, visible on the part of the split, the difference measure is limited to less than 5 beats / minute, which gives a margin of error of about 2%, negligible … compared to margins of error of measuring instruments 2.

Summary

The TomTom Runner Cardio made great improvements over its predecessor: The TomTom Runner. It’s just unfortunate that the integrated cardio increases the price in no small way.

The market for GPS watches is very competitive and to nibble shares, brands do not hesitate to get their new products without that they are fully “completed”. Then they offer updates via automatic and transparent to the user downloads. So they keep a park almost homogeneous level firmware versions (and again) and they can sell their product and adapt it early user feedback. Regarding this point, Tomtom is no exception to this rule and is way behind on his TomTom My Sports website. The changes come very slowly. At the shows, it is developed and the update brings only bug fixes. We must remember that TomTom is 30% of the market for LED rubber watches … is the challenge (see http://www.centralledwatch.com/online/rubber-led-watch/)!

At the level of reliability of the measurement instrument, there are restrictions on the use of the sensor on the wrist, at the tightening and potentially water / perspiration that can come between 2, otherwise it’s all good.

Side style, the watch going pretty well. Rather thin, pretty and large fonts to display the time. . Simple and effective

His only problem in its range of use is its price: too close to competing watches offering more features and / or a better battery life.

The only advantage to pay the price is to separate yourself from the chest strap , which is a real plus. Anyway, darling adopted this watch for this feature. I also had the pleasure to part with my chest strap the time of the clock tests.
