TomTom Runner - Performance
To begin tracking, you click the right button on the control pad to pick whether you are running outside or on a treadmill. Click right again and you’ll find the GPS finder screen. A click up lets you see the history from previous runs. Click down from the GPS finder screen and you’ll find the graphical training partner. Here you can pick from Goals, Laps, Zones and Race modes. The Race section already has challenges pre-loaded ranging from attempting a 10k in 50 minutes to a 5k in 20 minutes.
In terms of the accuracy of information, the TomTom Runner delivers data consistent with the Nike app and the Withings Pulse so we have no complaints with the Runner in this department.
Heading to the TomTom MySports website and uploading is really easy. Simply plug the watch module into the dock and the data is transferred over. The web tool is separated into a dashboard and account settings. In the dashboard things are pretty basic. There’s a map of your run and information on distance, time, calories burned, and heart rate.
Annoyingly, we couldn’t delete runs we accidentally logged and our attempts to upload data to Runkeeper and MapMyRun were unsuccessful. The site is still in beta, so there’s still time for things to improve. At the moment it’s not quite up to scratch compared to Garmin and Nike’s online tools.
