TomTomSpark~ Your GPS fitness watch review

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.

TomTomSparkSet 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.

Finishing words….
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?

  3. Kat Est | 6th May 16

    Oh, I’d LOVE a TomTomSpark! I often wonder how far I walk each day, and was curious how much of a workout I get from everyday activities (like mowing the lawn). This would be great to actually track that! Thanks for the review!

    • Erica | 6th May 16

      That would be great to track!!

    I do not have a fitness watch. I like that the font is so large.

  17. Laurie Bolduc-Cadieux | 8th May 16

    This is something I am going to set a goal on purchasing. It would help motivate me to see and track my success and progress and help me monitor things more accurately. Thanks for sharing

    Amazing amount of info on your wrist- and music to boot!

  21. nicolthepickle | 9th May 16

    I have a basic one, but I do so appreciate that this one tells you your heart rate.

  22. Diana Powell | 10th May 16

  23. Angela Mitchell | 11th May 16

  24. Judy Cowan | 11th May 16

    Looks like an interesting product. Very informative review 🙂

  28. Cathleen @ A Taste Of Madness | 12th May 16

    I would love to try this watch!

  29. Wanda Tracey | 12th May 16

    I would love to have a Tom Tom to see how far I walk each day!
    and I think it would be nice to see how it would track my walks
    and other activities I participate in.

  30. Krista M | 14th May 16

    Right now when my mom & I go for walks we use a pedometer app on my phone. First of all it’s not very accurate, & I don’t want to bring my phone as it’s too bulky to carry. The Tom Tom Spark to me is freedom, just put it on & forget about it. And it has way more exciting features like heart rate monitor & GPS!

  31. Allie f | 14th May 16

  34. Melinda Jana | 17th May 16

    looks like a really cool fitness watch. There are times when I would like to know my heart rate while participating in an activity

  35. Debbie S. | 18th May 16

    I would love one of these for each my husband and myself. It would help us keep track of our successes, and me if I get lost.

  36. Jodi Mitrovic | 19th May 16

    I don’t have a fitness watch but this week I have been researching and looking at purchasing one. I recently welcomed the arrival of our second bundle of joy and needing some help in the baby weight department. I like that it can hold 500 songs and agree that a swipe screen would have been more ideal. Thank you for a wonderful review. Definitely on my list now 🙂

  37. Carol M | 19th May 16

    I always wanted a fitness watch and this sounds like a great one.

  38. Jeannie Lam | 20th May 16

    This looks like a great fitness watch. Tomtom makes great products.

  39. Brenda Penton | 20th May 16

    I didn’t know Tom Tom made a heart rate monitor! I am in the market for one, I will have to check it out!
