TomTom Introduces Two GPS Sport Watches (0)

And for the latter, TomTom is coming up with two new GPS sport watches in the TomTom Runner and the TomTom Multi-Sport watches. The TomTom Runner and Multi-Sport watches are not just your ordinary wristwatch. They feature both GPS and GLONASS (or what you call Russian GPS) satellite tracking for accurate and fast geographical position pinpointing. Not only that, this feature can also be used to help runners and other sports enthusiasts monitor distance, speed as well as performance during different sports activities. Both watches also come with motion sensors to also keep track of pace. Both GPS watches also come with a large multi-directional button for use in wet conditions or when wearing gloves. While both watches may have the same features, the TomTom Multi-Sport is distinguishable by its swimming motion sensor and optional Bluetooth cadence and altimeter sensors.
