Vehicle sat-nav specialists TomTom have released details of a new Multi-Sport GPS.
This article was orginally published on bikeradar.com
The watch has a large, high-resolution screen and a one-touch button system to navigate through data. TomTom claim the latter feature is an industry first that allows users to flick through key data via an intuitive up-down and left-right navigation system.
Given the level of functionality – it doesn’t have a mapping mode – it looks likely to compete against entry-level GPS devices such as the Garmin 200, Bryton Rider 20 and Mio Cyclo 100.
The hardware looks robust. TomTom claim the glass screen is scratch- and impact-resistant. The high-contrast display unit is slim, at just 1cm, and is encased in a sturdy rubberised strap. A handlebar mount is available separately.
Users can choose from three graphical race training functions: Race pits you against a previous time, Goal allows a target distance, time or calorie count to be set and monitors time to completion, and Zone means you can track a set heart rate.
The watch will be available over the summer. Prices have not been released. For more information see www.tomtom.com.
