    TomTom, unlike others, continually improves the item Background you can skipI have mainly used the Garmin )Forerunner) series of sports GPS watches in the past and decided it was ready to upgrade given the size of the Garmins.Naturally I was overwhelmed with the sheer offering of alternatives in the market and the similarities between specs and the large divergence in pricing.Having great success with the TomTom brand in general for other equipment and knowing that they powered the Nike offering I decided to hone in on the Multi-sport and Runner watches they offered:- they looked smaller than most- had convertible bands for men and women (wife uses it too)- advertised features that others didn’t have like the “race yourself” feature where you run against your own best time and position on a previously run track- it was affordable- I loved the upgradeability they claimed (more on that later)- I loved the implementation of the joystickWhat made me worried were the 1m2 and 3 star reviews. I studied those closely and do want to note the following pattern: most of those reviews are based on VERY early adopters. Back in Mid 2013. The software was still on its beta and many functions, though advertised, weren’t there. I myself purchased the first GPS Runner watch in August of so and croaked on the fact that the “race yourself” function was not ready yet even though they advertised it.I blame these depressed reviews on the go-to-market strategy of TomTom with this device. They wanted it out there for the summer 2013 season but weren’t fully baked yet with software. This is what annoyed the early adopters and caused the review impact.But what is also notable of those reviews: TomTom replied to most if not all. Not a canned response, but with actual timelines, apologies and solutions. THAT is worthy of TomTom and made me stick it through. Now, about 6 or 7 months later: I am a convert. Best GPS watch I can imagine. It does everything and then some and they keep expanding the capabilities and software.About my experienceThe biggest thing to note is that TomTom cares about what they build: the watch has been constantly upgraded since I have purchased it (I was an early adopter when it just hit the market). I can not only race myself, race against pre-set goals, I can also start racing others via software linkage. They recently (v 1.6) introduced DIRECT syncing with IOS devices and the Android roll out is coming soon: you can disconnect the USB cables and sync over bluetooth 4.0.What’s so cool about this is that this device is almost a year in since its 2013 launch and they are adding features that others would create new models and price-hikes for. This si what I think is the greatest testament to TomTom’s mind set. You can obviously tell I have gotten somewhat attached to them but it is because they have treated us right from a consumer perspective.A great example of this is with earlier firmware: it was easy to accidentally stop a run because the joystick was hit inadvertently. They listened and implemented a pause into the button that required a continuous press of a second or 2 before it would record as a stop. That’s a great response to a fair complaint.The watch, hence the Multi-sport title, is basically Swim, Run and Bike ready. You can buy the heart rate strap, cadence sensor and be set for Tri-workouts. Note that they need to add a few training lap calks and analytics and this thing is a magnificent deal.It also accurately measures my treadmill runs based on the built in ‘accelerometer/step counter” or like kind ability. And it is actually within 2% accurate with a 5 mile run on my treadmill and it can be fine tuned after every race. Why is this important: harsh winter in Chicago anyone? I could not run outside for 4 months almost. This way I have accurately kept tabs on my total distance and improvements.The software is also constantly expanding and they are doing a lot to integrate with MVP (MapMyFitness) and like kind services and the item also comes with many built in export formats of your data. I like the combo of the dashboard of TomTom and the MapMyFitness aka MapMyRun as it shows your progress analytics and can even show you a flyover via a google maps plugin of a scenic route you ran (or any run outside). I just did a run through the “Strabrechtse Heide” in the Netherlands while on a trip which was absolutely stunning and I could see a Google maps flyover with milestones etc in picture and map view. Very cool.It connects to satellites REALLY FAST. About this Holland run: it took a few minutes (about 2) to find its location given that I had moved continents but it did so. The next day it took less than 10 secs to be ready to run. Nothing compares in this price range (up to 225$ range I looked at). This speed is often cited by others as key. Nothing worse to tell your running…
