Verging on indescribably disappointed: At unusable after the memory is full, if you do not want to upload the data to the TomTom servers.
1. You can not remove the race to run when the memory is full, without connecting to the computer (has confirmed that it is indeed so, by reading about others who had the same problems on the web).
2. If you connect up to your computer (that do not support Linux), so you can not connect to the watch without internet connection.
I bought this watch to avoid having to send info to the NSA, the CIA, FSB and other curious about where and when I prefer to exercise, but TomTom is apparently so sick eager to cash in on my computer that they do not intend to let this happen. This kind of thing makes me so terribly tired. Fy and re-fy!
Now, with full memory, is thus the clock useless, and I get to look around for another solution.
Then I would add that the heart rate monitor worked maybe 1 out of 50 times (not excessively) (maybe you have to have no further part to?), And that the distance measurement is not quite optimal (Sexton always out some 100m shorter than your friend's mobile phone, at 5km rounds for. ex.). But I had merely been able to live with that price, it just went to clear the course manual on the clock, without uploading them to 3rd parties.
Have had this watch for a dozen Running workout and are on the whole satisfied. The clock has the features I want, but probably has fewer features than many competitors. Favorite features are to compete against my opponents virutiella and see the shadow of him and how many meters before (or after) I lie and that the stacks to see where in the desired pace zone I is over time. Appreciate the price and simplicity of this watch. I have not had any problems with the bracelet. Before I put manually set my passport on Jogg.se. This watch is however simpler and more modern. Have also tried RunKeeper's app but got jagged tracks with strange data that result with the phone, I then had. I summarize my views so far below:
+ Slim design
+ Good battery life (10h according to data sheet)
+ The price (paid 990: - but seeing that now fallen to 699 :-)
+ Good Features (compete against old races or preprogrammed, stick in the desired zone, etc.)
+ Ok net place where data is stored. Simple but functional.
+ The accuracy seems good (checked repeatability and cf. With jogg.se)
+ Works fine with MySports (single sync)
- The small data fields at the top of the watch is probably so small (for a 45-year-old .....)
- Usually takes the GPS fix 1-2 minutes before it is ready to start
Updating views on the changes with time.
Do you want a simple clock, but with sensible features at a great price - BUY!
I have previously had the Garmin GPS watches, and later driven by smartphone and a pebble, but got tired of lugging the phone on each jogging session. Bought this on sale Elgiganten 499 SEK. Awesome satisfied!
+ Easy to use, provides the information you want.
+ Sits well on the wrist, lightly.
+ Good receivers of GPS signals.
+ Good battery life.
+ You can export the data automatically after each pass to Runkeeper.
+ BT connection to the smartphone.
+ Very affordable even in words. price ca. 800 kr.
- Pulling of a star due. tenacious link to the app for Android and that it is necessary to register at the TomTom for it to work with the app.
Overall rating from me will be excellent and it is now up to each jogging!
I am insanely happy.
I paid 690 SEK for it. It made me hit was the integration with smartphone and battery life that makes it practical to have as normal watch as well.
+ Finds GPS in seconds. Even indoors so they can do it ready before you venture out.
+ Very good battery life. Allow it to function as a clock too. I can drive safely one week if I did not use the GPS. With the GPS, so do I for a moment in the evening before going to bed. Then I can run a few one-hour workouts (cycling to and from work) and use it as a normal clock that always goes right in a day and has more than 50% battery left.
+ Works superbly with my Android phone. Just start the app will load the passport of direct and then you have both the mobile and online in the TOMTOM mysports AND MapMyFitness.
+ Available bunch of features, compete against old races, coaching interval training, etc.
+ Option to have the chest strap connected.
+ Easy to use and understand.
+ You can choose what you want to see on the screen while you work.
-You Can only have three values when training. I have distance, time and average speed but can not for example have the clock too.
-A Special charger. Unfortunately, you can not just scoring a standard micro usb so you have to take the charger with you or recharge at home where it is.
-The Clock can not be set in any other passport than running. Bicycles can then sometimes you get to change it manually afterwards, which is a bit like that. But on the other hand I never I run for 25 km / h.
-It Would take a keylock. Very easy to get to the controller by mistake, not when you practice so it's not really important.
Previously, I used the phone and Runkeeper. But it takes a long time to find the GPS and additionally measures the worse. Plus it's so easy to just look at the arm how far you have come, stretch, etc. compared to taking up the cell phone, turn on the screen, unlock, etc. Plus many mobiles are so big today that it's hard to have it in hand when you run. Bicycles can moreover it is hopeless to take up the cell phone out of your pocket if you want to know how it goes.
