(TOM2) today launches the all-new TomTom Spark GPS Fitness Watch with
integrated music player, making it easier for fitness enthusiasts to
boost their training. Now users no longer have to strap a phone to their
arm or worry about wires getting in the way during their workout. TomTom
Spark gives them everything they need in one easy-to-use device on
3GB of music storage on the TomTom Spark means users can now leave their
smartphone at home while listening to over 500 songs* directly from
their watch. The fitness watch streams music to a wide range of
Bluetooth® headphones. Comes preloaded with Running Trax, a bespoke
thirty minute mix of motivating, high energy, upbeat dance anthems from
some of the world’s best DJs, curated by Ministry
of Sound. Playlists can also be easily downloaded to TomTom Spark
from iTunes or Windows Media® Player.
“We know that music plays an important role when it comes to motivating
and improving sports performance. Relying on a smartphone is all too
often an uncomfortable experience,” says Corinne Vigreux, Managing
Director, TomTom. “The unique combination of an integrated music player,
built-in heart rate monitor, 24/7 activity tracking, multi-sport modes
and GPS in TomTom Spark makes it easier than ever to track progress,
improve overall fitness levels and ultimately get more from your workout”
Steps, active minutes, distance, calories burned and sleep duration are
tracked by the 24/7 activity tracking feature in the TomTom Spark. Users
can set and track daily and weekly goals and follow progress on their
watch or via the TomTom MySports app.
The built-in heart rate monitor accurately tracks heart rate, without
the need for a chest strap. The multi-sport mode means that users can
track all of their indoor and outdoor sporting activity including
running, cycling, swimming, treadmill and gym workouts.
TomTom Spark also includes highly accurate GPS tracking to provide
real-time information including time, distance, speed and pace.
