TomTom Brings The Beat To Fitness With Spark: New Wearable Featuring On-Board Music

For any sport, on any day, TomTom Spark GPS Fitness Watch is the ultimate training companion for fitness enthusiasts, from casual to committed

TomTom (TOM2) today launches the all new TomTom Spark, its GPS Fitness Watch featuring on-board music and Bluetooth® connectivity to help fitness enthusiasts at any level get motivated, achieve their best and track their progress – all from one easy-to-use, wearable device. With TomTom Spark, users can listen to their favorite music mixes while tracking their steps, miles and calories burned and monitoring their heart rate for an optimal workout – leaving behind their cellphone and single-minded fitness trackers.

 

Carry over 500 songs without carrying your phone. That’s 3GB of music wrapped around your wrist so you can listen to your favorite playlists straight from you watch.

 

Capture every active minute of your day. Sleep, sprints, strolls, steps. Every active minute counts and tracking your moves all day will add up to time, distance and calories burned.

With 3GB of on-board music storage, the TomTom Spark holds up to 500 songs* in playlists that can be easily transferred from iTunes® or Windows Media® Player. Wireless Bluetooth® headphones enable users to cut-the-cord to intrusive and cumbersome wires while listening to music and getting real-time progress updates from the voice coach.

“We designed TomTom Spark to meet the every-day needs of the any-day athlete,” said Jocelyn Vigreux, President of TomTom, Inc. “By putting music, monitoring and motivation all on your wrist, we removed the tangle of wires and made the entire experience simple and ready-to-go.”

TomTom Spark is the latest in the complete line of TomTom wearable fitness technologies. The 24⁄7 activity tracker continuously logs steps, active minutes, distance, calories burned and sleep duration. TomTom GPS tracking provides real-time information including time, distance, speed and pace. The built-in heart rate monitor accurately tracks heart rate, without the need for a chest strap. Multiple sports modes let users track their activity inside and out, across running, cycling, swimming, treadmill and gym workouts.

Users can upload and review their stats wirelessly via the MySports app to multiple platforms including TomTom MySports, RunKeeper, Nike+ and more. With the release of Spark, TomTom has also redesigned its MySports app with a new, more intuitive user dashboard to manage music, access progress reports, set and monitor training goals and get the most out of the Spark experience.
