TomTom Spark 3 Multi Sport GPS Fitness Watch – Large Strap : Basically does the job, but music set up is tricky and Bluetooth not at all great.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I bought one of these in october and have loved it. It’s easy to use and a bonus is that i can see the time without my specs on. I’ve used it for running and swimming, and keeping an eye on my step count. Unfortunately a week or so ago it developed what looked like a bleed under the screen which started at the left hand side but spread over a few days till the screen was unreadable. I contacted amazon and a few days later received a replacement. I am delighted with this service.

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.

  • Everything I found I needed in a Fitness tracker.
  • Fantastic GPS watch
  • Got this on a deal but very happy. HR seems pretty accurate compared to chest strap

I have had my tom tom since april and have loved it. This is so sad as wear it every day. I was sent a new watch in december 2017 but tonight the strap has broken again in the same way. But i can not find an email to get support??.

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.

It was a present as i do many sports including triathlons and got sick off faffing with my garmin during transition and this is wonderful. I use it for circuit training too. I went whole hog and got heart monitor and music and all work fab too. Also easy to change the strap of you fancy a change of colourmy garmin has been demoted and now lives in the drawer.

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.

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.

I bought it as a gift for my husband who was beginning to get into fitness. He never mentioned he wanted one but i got it anyway and i think we’re both a little surprised to how much he loves it and uses it. I can’t really comment on the battery life or anything about the watch because i don’t really know but i do know that the watch is practical and a great way to encourage someone who is beginning to get into fitness and sport.

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.

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.

TomTom Spark 3 Multi Sport GPS Fitness Watch – Large Strap, Black

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.

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.

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 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.

Very accurate gps, easy to use buttons. Not used to having to charge battery as i have always had an ordinary watch/stopwatch, but am enjoying the usefulness of all data acquired: distance, time, pace, terrain of all workouts.

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.

Simple once you watch a couple youtube videos on how to use. Thought it had built in heart rate monitor but doesn’t which was my fault fir missing five print. Headphones connect best if your away from other electronics, so go to a park if you have trouble. No bass to the headphones but otherwise fine. Great simple screen when exercising, all in all happy and recommend.
