TomTom Spark Review


TomTom SparkFirst unveiled at the IFA I in Berlin in September 2015, the TomTom Spark is a feature rich fitness watch that is designed for cyclists, swimmers, runners and gym goers alike. You’re probably thinking that there are several watches that do the same exact same thing, but what makes the Spark stand distinct from its competition is heart rate monitoring, GPS and even onsite wrist based music playback – a feature that many fitness watches lack.

In addition to its lightweight design and fairly large monochrome display, the TomTom spark also offers onboard local to store up to 500 (3 GB of local storage) of your favorite tunes and playback via Bluetooth. This feature alone gives the Spark an edge over its competition and makes it a solid choice if you’re looking to incorporate music into your workouts. This latest fitness watch by TomTom is a significant departure from its predecessors, and can be ordered in several different color variants.

In the box you receive:

  • TomTom Cardio fitness watch
  • Charging cable
