Well its been a few weeks now and I have to say that I have been really enjoying the TomTom multisport, so much so I think its coming on holiday with me, this is mainly to do with the features that this watch has, yes it is a watch that happens to have a GPS module inside.
The watch has a feature called quickGPS where upon uploading your data to the website, MySport that is provided by TomTom, it will download the GPS location for next 3-5 days this intern helps for a quicker GPS lock which means you can start your activity quicker also, I have noticed that after a few days of not using the GPS module of the watch it will take longer to lock onto the GPS, saying that I have also noticed that the GPS will sometimes be quicker if you are starting again from the same location where you finished your activity. The watch also has a stopwatch and alarm feature which are very welcome and the alarm, having tested this, does wake you and everyone else around you up. Also the charge of the watch is very good with the watch being able to go between charges for at least 5 days ,with normal wearing and activity tracking also, sometimes a whole week depending on when I decide to dock it to upload my data.
The only point I will say is that the standard strap is rather large, wide and a little ungainly, I did wear the black/grey combo but decided to treat the watch to a couple of things, a screen protector as I am sure its only going to be a matter of time before it gets knocked or scratched. The other was a new slim strap, ended up getting it direct from TomTom as the price difference online with the colour combo I wanted was not worth the faff. So I now have the dark blue and green slim strap and it has transformed the experience again for the better, wish these watches came with this strap as standard so much better plus the wife approves so it must be good.
