Work out to Music on Your Wrist with the New TomTom Spark | Business Wire

BERLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TomTom

(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

their wrist.

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.

Users can upload their stats via the MySports app and review their stats

wirelessly on multiple platforms including TomTom MySports, RunKeeper,
