A little surprised this received eight out of ten considering the swimming functionality seems next to useless. Otherwise I'd buy one. Price point is great.

I have one and the swimming function has been flawless.

TomTom multi-sport watch is CRAP and TomTom after sales
service is WORSE.

I bought the watch on Dec 2013 and was working perfectly for
few months and then started giving the error: "Activity Error. There was a
problem uploading one or more activities.", I think after a software
update. All of my .ttbin files are saving to my computer, but not uploading to
my mysports / mapmyfitness accounts.

I was advised by TomTom to perform "Recovery Mode"
, when "Recovery Mode" didn't solve the issue I was advised for
"Factory Reset". It didn't
solve the issue either but deleted all data history.

Then I asked for the refund, and TomTom asked me to provide
Proof of purchase and other personal details. When I provided all the details
hoping to receive refund for faulty watch, they changed their tone with reply
as quoted below

"I wish we could exchange the watch as the issue is
with the application and not with watch. Replacing watch will not make any
difference. I understand your frustration. However, I would request you to
please wait while our team is working to fix this issue with MySports connect

First I do not expect such irresponsible response from brand
like "TomTom". They have agreed application issue with watch which
cannot be solved and on other hand they are still selling this watch without
informing customers about this issue which will cause errors while uploading
data on personal computer.

It has been more than 5 months now since I have issue with
the watch, I am still having error message, perhaps software update has not
been done yet (I was advised to wait for software update on 08/05/14)

I would appreciate if TomTom collect their product back and
refund my money back without further torture.

Hi Paul, I am looking for a watch like this but read a few reviews about the swimming mode is not as good as I expect. Can you tell me a little bit more about your experience. I live in a sunny country and the pools are outdoors.

Hi, I am surprise about what happen to you. I want to buy one like this one but I am not sure. And after read this, I feel less sure than before. Did TomTom solve your problem? Did you find a sportwatch witch the same functions? any advice will be appreciate.

Hi Onam,

Finally TomTom replaced my watch with upgrade version for which I have to fight for more than 4 months. Watch is very good in term of keeping track of cycling and running and also gives very accurate heartbeat per minute (this applies to multi sport cardio). I hve not used it for swimming. I would say this is great watch and love it functions and also admit that tomtom customer service does not meet standards expected in west. Bottom line is it is very good watch, but if you find some issue with it then customer service is very slow.

What is the battery life on this thing like? WIll it last for 9+ hours of monitoring for adventure sports? does it have a standby mode? Can I wear it as a watch when I am not doing sports?

They don't have a real repair service. For a cracked screen they asked me to pay 85EU.
