What Can The TomTom Runner GPS Watch Do For You?
The TomTom Runner GPS Watch can track your runs, cycling, and swimming. If you like running indoors on treadmills, this watch is perfect.
The TomTom Runner has a built- in sensors that count your strides so you can monitor your pace and distance. You can run on the treadmill and get accurate readings.
If you are running outdoors the TomTom Runner uses the QuickGPSFix System which helps your watch find your precise location so you can start your run in a timely manner.
I personally like to run outdoors and I haven’t had any problems picking up signals with the QuickGPSFix System.
If you are using the watch in the GPS mode it can last up to 10 hours but if not you get around 8 hours of battery life.
No matter where you run the TomTom Runner will track your pace, distance, and time. It also tracks calories burned and if you go walking it tracks that to.
The TomTom Runner is a great snug fit on your wrist as well. It sits comfortably and it is extremely light.
The only thing I have a problem with is the backlight. If I’m running and lighting starts to fade, I constantly have to keep taping the screen on my watch because the backlight doesn’t stay on for to long and it really isn’t bright.
The TomTom Runner is also waterproof for up to 165 feet (50 meters). I go snorkeling a lot and I use this watch because it is extremely comfortable on my wrist. Mainly use it just to tell the time when I’m in the water so I don’t stay out to late.
How The TomTom Runner Help Me Improve My Run
I’m not a very strong runner and I had a hard time keeping my pace with my other watches I had bought until I got The TomTom Runner.
I always try to run my mile at a 7:30 pace because my age in the Army I am required to run 2 miles in 16:36.
The TomTom Watch was able to help me stay on top of my game keeping track of my pace that I wanted and it also had a Goal feature that pushed me to my limit.
I just set a time and pace I wanted to run and I run against my watch trying to fulfill my goal. I usually run my 2 miles at 15:25 but with consistent running, hard work, and my goal feature on my watch, I was able to run my 2 miles at 14:10.
Not the fastest but better then before, and I was able to fulfill my short term goal of beating my past run times. Thank You for reading and if any questions or comments please leave them below.
