TomTomSpark your ultimate fitness watch or is it? It packs a lot of punch with a built in GPS, heart rate monitor, music and 3G of space which is a lot of songs, like 500. It tracks your steps, sleep and I like the sleek design. It’s a little big but for someone like me, coming in at 5’10” I like it. It also comes with bluetooth headphones. It tracks any workout from running, freestyle, to swimming and much more and it’s a stopwatch. At $199, it’s also quite affordable for all its features. I gave it a try to see how it worked along with my Fitness Blender workouts and Jillian Michaels Hot Body Healthy Mommy routine because I’ve always wondered. “How many calories am I actually burning?”. I loved that I could see as you can see in the image below. It was really cool. I also like the wrist band as it’s customizable so you can easily adjust for your comfort level. I should get back into BeachBody and see how much I burn there too as I’ve always wondered when attempting the 21 Day fix.
Set up is relatively easy. Download the software, get the app and log in. It took me a little while to play around with it and to figure it out. I found watching the YouTube video’s extremely helpful. When in doubt- You tube, lol. Your watch connects to your computer and phone so you can never lose track of your fitness.
Anything I don’t like about it?
I kinda wish it had a swipe screen as I find the 4 way button a little annoying. I’ll be honest. Sometimes I struggle with it to get it to swipe. It does have a back light too which is activated by placing your hand over it. I tried the two finger tap which I read somewhere that is how you activate it but placing your hand over,palm down seems to do the trick.
I love that it has goal settings, something that I need. I love the extra push I get. Here’s a little video from TomTom so you can see it in action and the Goal features. As a mom on the go and as a mom getting back into exercise I think it’s a simple enough and a great activity watch. It would be awesome to receive to as a gift(hint, hint, Mother’s Day). This is my first fitness watch so I can’t compare it to others like its competitors but overall for the value, I think you’ll like it and like I said above, if you like music when you work out it can hold 500 songs. Leave your phone at home, get your runners on and go chill out with a good run or walk and come back home refreshed.
Do you have a fitness watch? Is this something you think you’d like? What features do you like?
