This is billed as a GPS watch to track your sport, and to wear as your daily watch to track your activity, like a Garmin and Jawbone all in one.
The "USP", and what is supposed to set this apart, is the in-built music player with bluetooth headphones, and the heart rate monitor on your wrist rather than a chest strap.
ACCURACY. First things first, my number one priority is it's accuracy as a running watch. Reviews/users seem to argue til the cows come home about which device is most accurate etc etc. In day to day testing, this measures up accurately enough to Garmin, my phone, and a measured mile, and the GPS seems very accurate indeed (to the extent it knows which side of the road you're running on). And locking in to the signal is very quick indeed, just a few seconds.
What's most impressive is the heart rate monitor accuracy. It's brilliant. It seems in testing just as accurate as a chest strap. I've read a few other reviewers casting doubt on the wrist monitor, but it really does work and is sooooo much better than a chest strap.
FUNCTIONALITY. Variable! There are some lovely features on here, such as the race feature, being able to change interval training on the device, audio prompts to keep you at designated heart rate zones. There are some features that are missing that I liked on Garmin eg. much more sophisticated training programs, alerts at mile stages, auto pause. You gain some, you lose some!
I am a little frustrated with the interval function. There is no ability to set a target pulse or heart rate during efforts. And there is nothing to tell you have far through your efforts or rest you are.
THE LOOK AND FEEL. It's thin. It looks smart. The rubberized strap is extremely comfortable. It's thin enough to use as a daily watch. The screen is clear and bright and I love the ability to switch on the back-light by placing your hand over the face.
MUSIC. It's a bit clunky to create playlists on windows media player and transfer them, but once you get the hang of it, its straightforward to transfer the music to the device and the sound quality is great. I love having the music on my watch, no extra devices, and no wires.
COMPATIBILITY. I like to use Strava to store runs etc and my fintess pal, and the device syncs perfectly with the usual suspects of sports/activity/running apps.
OK, so now for a few negative points
1. Bluetooth connection to phone. It's flakey. I have a Galaxy S6, and connection to the device is extremely variable. It sometimes connects, sometimes doesn't. I often have to unpair my phone and then repair it to get it to work. Not a problem if you're at home and can connect the phone to the PC, but a right pain if you're out and about.
2. Bluetooth connection to headset. It's flakey. Connection to certain headsets is not great; some work only if the watch is on a certain wrist, many don't work at all, only a few have been tried and tested and recommended by Tomtom...... my 2 pairs don't work well.
3. Using as a daily activity tracker. It's really no good at doing this! It's a nice extra to have steps and sleep tracker. But step count is vastly overestimated compared to jawbone/fitbit/phone. There is very limited sleep data. The step count does not integrate with other lifestyle tracking apps, which makes it difficult to use if you want to carefully track your calories burned vs dietry input etc.
In summary, it's a cracking running GPS watch. The wrist HR monitor is a HUGE forward step in running watch technology. BUT TomTom need to sort out the bluetooth issues to get 5 stars, and until it does I would recommend only buying the cardio+ version not the music version.
Item was supplied by TomTom in exchange for a fair and honest review. No attempt was made by TomTom to influence my review.
EDIT: I've now got a bluetooth headset that works perfectly without cutting out. And it's a joy to use. BUT after an hour it cut out, the activity failed to upload to the internet and has been lost forever. Looking on the Tomtom forum, its probably because the bitrate of the music is too high. The solution is apparently to resize your music files, reducing the bitrate, before uploading to the watch!! Seriously!!! The music aspect of this watch is just seriously frustrating
EDIT: 10th March 2016. After the firmware update which claims to solve the bluetooth issues; there are still issues connecting watch to phone, nothing has changed. There is some improvement in watch to headphone connectivity, but it's still not great and has certainly NOT solved the issues.....
Bought it based on reviews, comparing with others, and never having seen it live. Don't regret it a bit! Great bang fort your buck! Not a perfect fitness watch, but very close... Just needs little tweaks in future models.
The watch fits comfortably, the single 4 way controller is easy to use whilst running and the menu system is pretty idiot proof once you've spent 5 minutes playing around with it. The method for triggering the backlight (which is briefly cover the watch face with your other hand) initially seem odd but in fact is genius as its so easy to use when you're running in low light situations.
The motion activity tracker is as gimmicky (and inaccurate) as the rest of the fitbit-style gadgets on the market and pretty much irrelevant to my needs but I guess its nice to know the info is there if I ever want to know how many steps/times-I've-waggled-my-arm-around both today and a running total for the week.
Many reviewers have complained of trouble with blutooth headphone connectivity with their existing headphones. I was in the fortunate position of not having an existing set of headphones so I could just opt for one of the (very few!) that TomTom have tested the watch with (I purchased the Backbeat Fit headphones, which are superb for both staying in place when running and their sound quality - highly recommended). The watch syncs easily with the headphones and music on the move is great - the longest I've run with the watch is about 90 minutes and the headphones didn't drop out at all during that time so, with the right headphones, there doesn't appear to be a drop-out issue.
If you have existing headphones that you like, then its worth investigating whether they're going to work well with the watch or not, otherwise you may be very disappointed.
The GPS is accurate (used for Running, Cycling and Skiing so far), and as far as I can ascertain, so is the heartrate monitor.
TomTom's sync'ing app is a bit basic, as is the TomTom MySports website where you can analyse the results of your efforts (both are worth TomTom developing to broaden the products appeal) but you can easily register the watch to automatically upload to Strava and other 3rd party apps, so there are plenty of options if you want to go mad analysing your stats.
TomTom are clearly still developing features for the product (I've already had two automatic software upgrades when I sync'ed my running activity) which is good news for purchasers but the functionality can definitely still be improved upon... If you're listening TomTom, one thing I'd REALLY like is the option to link/re-link my headphones during a run/cycle (e.g. if they drop out or I power them off/on during the session), without having to end the activity session, re-link the headphones and then start a new activity session. An option to do this from the "paused session" menu would be great, please!
Despite there being room for improvement in a number of areas, I think it would be very churlish of me to award anything other than 5 stars given how pleased I am with the product and its expansive features and how inexpensive it is compared to equivalent options on the market.
