TomTom Spark 3 Multi Sport GPS Fitness Watch : GPS + Audio Spark 3

Hesitated on buying this based on comments about headphone issues. I wanted a gps with music and hr so i didnt have to carry my phone. Got this on a deal but very happy. Hr seems pretty accurate compared to chest strap, no issues pairing headphones (a bit slow to connect but ok). I didnt use any of the “recommended” ones but tried 2 different “cheapy” earphones and they both work and sound great. The gps is exactly matching my phone and is consistent. I find you need to do a sync with the tomtom app every 2-3 days otherwise the gps connection gets slower and slower. But regular syncing and it connects very quick. So, music, hr and gps tracking all working together with no issues and seem accurate.

It is easy to set up, very comfortable to wear and gives me lots of useful fitness tracking. The tomtom sport app operates in the background on my phone to show me the details of activities i have completed, sleep patterns, etc. It might not be the most technically advanced or the prettiest looking watch on the market but for my level of activity, it is perfect. And at a price i could afford.

Really happy with it so far,syncs no problem with i pad,buttons r fine,sat nav works,screen is pretty easy to check,battery not greatest(not a big issue)strap is fine,maybe slightly big but not really problem,ran 16 miles and no irritation (too tired to notice)app no problems ,gives readings that would satisfy most amateurs,have not tried music yet,but would buy again,distance and sat nav appear to be accurate,also it updates (now has workouts on it).

I use it when running and normal timepiece. My only complaint would be that you cannot change a music track easily and on the run. I love the mapping which i find better than garmin. The music headset is comfortable even after an hour of running, great sound, easy to use controls and water resistant.

Very easy to use and comfortable to wear, my only complaint is the battery does not seem to hold its charge for as long as i expected, but i purchased it to make sure my dogs and myself are getting enough exercise so it does the job.

I’m a big fan of this watch. I’ll run through as many of the features as i can. Day to dayon a normal day you can use the watch to tell the time like any other. The big display makes it easy to see and covering the watch with your palm makes the back light come on. Runningthe watch tracks your locstion via gps and your heart rate if you connect a seperate sensor to it. I use wahoo and it works fine. While running you can view your many details including current clock time, running time, current pace, average pace, distance, heart rate and heart rate zone. You are also able to upload a route for you to follow. Swimmingswimming settings muat be adjusted for length of the pool to correctly show you total numbwr of lengths. You also grt number of strokes pwr length and total swimming time.

The watch seems good although the heart rate monitor is not always accurate, especially when you are on a bike and your first might be at a tight angle causing the watch to move. The strap however is terrible quality. I take my watch off at least everyday and the strap that came with this watch only lasted a couple of months before both the little strips of rubber that operate the holes started to come off and strap itself started to split.

Quite pleased with the look. Set up not the easiest, but easier when i got it out of french and into english. As far as running and tracking your run goes, its all great, no problems. You have to put it into a playlist in apple music or windows media player to sync with the watch as it will not accept normal mp3s. I’m fairly comfortable using computers (but not itunes) and this took me around half an hour. So far, so good but when i went for a run it transpired that the bluetooth skips. When i moved the watch to my right wrist or headphones upside-down it worked fine so i can only presume that my head is too thick for the bluetooth to properly get through. I can’t bear wearing a watch on my right wrist or headphones upside down, so this is going to be a problem for me and will probably keep taking my phone out running (which is part of what i was trying to avoid by buying this watch).

TomTom Spark 3 Multi Sport GPS Fitness Watch with Heart Rate Monitor – Small Strap, Aqua

Buy on Amazon

Very good gps tracker for the cost. Looks basic but functions very well. The power is in tomtom’s website when the data is uploaded from the computer software that reads the device, very good interface. They also provide linux software.Open swimming is not quite perfect as the swimming activity is designed for pool lengths and does not use gps. It is waterproof, but gps signals will be blocked within an inch of water so make sure it is above water and use the running activity mode to capture your open water swimming progress.

Amazingi would 100 percent advise any runners thinking of getting a watch to run with to get this one. Easy to use and great features. The customer service i received from both amazon and tomtom when didn’t know how to set it up was so good. This is the future of running watches get on board and get one.

This watch is a great aid for my triathlon training music is good the headphones went through the washing machine by mistake and still work perfectly as before my only moan would be the lack of instructions i found most of the feature by just pressing the buttons and messing about with it the app is great on the phone showing your route fastest mile i do recommend.

I’ve had this now for 10 months & overall it has has been good but with a couple of issues. Firstly i have had to replace the strap as the original snapped. Thankfully tom tom sent me a replacement free of charge. Now for the main issue which is to do with the wrist heart rate monitor. If you are like me & exercise at least 5 times a week at a pretty intense rate, bikeing, power circuits, or running you will find the heart rate indication very in-accurate at high intensity. I have estimated it to be probably 20 – 30 bpm either too high or low. I have bought a blue tooth chest heart rate monitor in order to get an accurate reading. To be fare, i think there is still some work to be done by all makes of watch in order to get anywhere near a chest strap.

The watch itself is great value – comfortable, versatile, easy to recharge, set up and use and the associated app does everything you’d expect from a gps+bluetooth sports watch. The big design flaw is that the strap is an unconventional all-silicone design that tore and broke behind the buckle just after a year of use. It’s almost as if tomtom expect this as the strap can be so easily removed and replaced at home.

Nice product, worked initially slow for gps locator but became much better after web updated gps information. Simple to use audio app but could be a bit better featured. Great info on the web site when you upload your runs. Comfy strap, sadly it broke after two months. Poor warranty support from tomtom.

Everything other than indoor cycling seems to work, but after looking into it, most gyms do not have a wheel size on their indoor bikes so it will not work.

Bought to replace fitbit surge as gone through two straps in a little over18 months. Watch and tom tom sports app not as thorough as fitbit for non gps / gym activities and heart rate / calorie monitors don’t seem to track, but as a gps watch for running which is my main reason for owning a fitness watch, i prefer the tom tom to the fitbit.

TomTom Spark 3 Multi Sport GPS Fitness Watch with Heart Rate Monitor – Small Strap, Aqua

My first running watch, easy to use with great support from tom tom when i had issues pairing it to my iphone. There is an issue with this and an update is being developed, just hasn’t happened yet. However tom tom did something to sort it out so it talks to my phone now.

I don’t often get excited by tech, but am very impressed with this offering. I like products to be simple, but do what they do well, and this does exactly that. Perfect for sporty types who don’t necessarily need top of the range professional kitif i did have any criticism, it’d be that the sleep monitor isn’t that great. And who really wants to wear their watch to bed every night anyway?.- and perhaps a few more exercise modes would be useful e. Hike, but nonetheless, this item is highly recommended. I wear mine all day, and get decent battery life between charges. The app is pretty good alsoi would still suggest having a look and play with one prior to purchase, as it may not be for everyone e. People with super small wrists.

2019 jan update – watch has been going strong. Excellent customer service on the software update side. Once the watch was not working, they immediately sent me a label to send watch back to them for repair. Very happy with the watch and service. Run, swim, heart rate and sleep tracking have been great. The mp3 function is excellent, do not have to run with a phone. Original review in 2017:watch is working fine but the strap is defective, comes off easily. Update: tomtom is sending me a replacement strap. Very happy with the service and watch itself. Can accurately measure swimming in pool and running. Gps is very good, fast to pick up signal in central london by the river.

I only bought this to track distance and time for my marathon – for which it has been helpful. All other gym workouts or circuit training i find the heart rate and calories burned quite inaccurate, also strap ripped too – and i only wear this for the gym now. £25 for a new strap is outrageous.

Bought this as all the reviews said it did heart rate but this model doesn’t – the missing star is because of this. Otherwise it does everything it says and is accurate with gps good value for money at £69. I would say as a female this is not dainty or small and possibly better suited for a man – depends on your style preference. Sadly sent back as i need hr. Customer service from amazon excellent.

Very good watch, loads of features. Step counter seems to work well. Turned my 11 year old into some kind of fitness coach.It’s his watch but he keeps telling me to run faster.

After many months of looking at the low and middle priced fitness tracking watches, i was finding that either the watch ui or the app were badly designed. This uses a bevel mounted switch that is separate to the display with an up down, left and right button selection. For a fitness tracker that is used for swim tracking, this is superior to a touchscreen, as water or wet fingers do not respond well to touchscreen commands. The screen permanently displays the current date and time with what appears to be a black and white e-ink (like a kindle ebook) display. This is not visible in the dark, however covering the display with your palm with activate a backlight and show up at night. The small strap is too tight for my wrist and i am an average sized man (around 7. ) i have now purchased a large strap which is much more comfortable. The locking mechanism for the straps is unique, with a 3 point fixing system and works well, being able to fit comfortably but not too tight or loose. Ordinary watch straps will not fit this tracker.

Not all singing and dancing. You need to buy all of the extras. Heart sensor gps everything they say it does you need to to purchase separately. Only good thing about it is the night light and it has large numbering for the watch. It is water resistant but it does tend to fog upside.

Very happy with this purchase. The voice coach is great and i like the heart rate monitoring function. Battery lasts 4-5 days when just using the heart rate and step counting function. Music sounds great and the device has certainly helped me improve my running. The only slight downside is the shuttle function. It doesn’t snuggle your tunes very well. Often a track which was played 7-8 tracks previously will play again. Otherwise great device and great value.

No complaints for the price, tracks runs and cycle rides perfectly adequately, tells me what i want to know in terms of speed elapsed time etc. Haven’t as yet worked out if i can upload custom run speed work sessions but expect i can. It counts pool lengths accurately but gives me speed readouts rather than pace/ 100m though its possible that it can and i haven’t sussed it. In general it does the job and links seamlessly with starva.
