TomTom is gung-ho about getting good press for its new fitness wearable, the TomTom Spark Music GPS Fitness Watch. Fortunately for the company, members of the press are cool with publicizing the Spark if it means they might get something in return.
TomTom’s first running watch was a great first step two years ago. Last year it got even better, with an integrated heart rate monitor. For this year’s watches, TomTom is adding full activity tracker capabilities and the ability to stream music to Bluetooth headphones, all for a pretty reasonable price.
TomTom’s new Bandit action camera at first seems to be just another uninspired rugged shooter. But a closer look reveals that even without trying the camera to see if it’s any good, I’m impressed by the clever battery design.
When we reviewed the TomTom Runner GPS watch last year, we pointed out that if you wanted to monitor your heart rate, you'd need to buy an extra accessory. But for athletes looking to seriously train their bodies, metrics on how fast or far they ran, swam, or biked isn't enough. So TomTom has updated the Runner GPS…
TomTom (the GPS so nice they named it twice) has decided to get into the crowded-but-plenty-of-room-for-improvement running watch game. The company has been making GPS devices for cars for years, so you'd think it'd be able to make a pretty good running watch. And, for the most part, it has.
A couple of years ago TomTom partnered with Nike for what was one of the first GPS sport watches that didn't look like some monstrous fitness accessory strapped to your wrist. But now the company is parting ways with the swoosh and releasing a set of TomTom-branded watches called the Runner and Multi-Sport for those…
It isn't quite street riding season in the NE but come spring, TomTom's Rider GPS for motorcyclists will help navigate you to your intended destination.
When your iPhone comes preloaded with multiple types of maps, you might wonder why you'd ever need a dedicated navigation app. Yet there they are in the App Store, at astronomical prices, like a digital clone of the GPS unit your dad had suction-cupped to his windshield.
TomTom was already a big player in digital mapping, and then it went and signed up to work with Apple on the new iOS maps app. Good news, then, for anyone who uses a TomTom provided service: their maps are soon set to update every single day, for free.
Fret not—Hurricane Irene didn't blow all the stupid out of the world. The TomTom Go Live 1535 M packs apps! The coolest one? A neutered Twitter program that only lets you broadcast your location to the internet. Vroom!
Death Valley sounds like a terrifying place. So if you're driving there on vacation, you'll count on your GPS to get you the fuck out. Except that, thanks to its reliance on outdated maps, your GPS wants you to fry.
It's a new year, which means new resolutions to get in shape. Let technology help you! Don't fight it! The Nike+ SportWatch, powered by TomTOM GPS, will bug you when you forget to run and encourage you when you do.
An improved user interface for the GO 2405 and 2505 means drivers will spend less time pressing the screen, and more time with their hands on the driving wheel. Saying that, however, it now supports the familiar pinch-to-zoom interaction.
The feature to use GPS coordinates inside geotagged photos as a waypoint to navigate to is an obvious one, but actually a pretty clever use if you think about it. Good job, TomTom.
TomTom has decided to celebrate Star Wars Day—May 4th—with a Darth Vader voice for their GPS devices, complete with Imperial March playback, rattling lightsabers, and flying TIE Fighters. And there are more Star Wars characters coming soon:
TomTom's claiming the GO LIVE 1000 marks "the first in a whole new generation of navigation devices," which just makes me think it'd be worth holding out to see what the second model does. Nonetheless, the capacitive touchscreen is big news.
