Dutch company TomTom is no stranger to GPS business, but its latest offerings are a pair of GPS Sport Watches that are anything but navigation related. instead, the company leverages on its expertise in the GPS technology and put them into these sport watches to help athletes and runners keep track of their performances. the two models, the TomTom Runner and TomTom Multi-Sport retails for $169.99 and $199.99, respectively. the former is available as of now in the US, while the latter will be made available later this month. common features include an extra-large display, full-screen graphical training tools and the industry’s first one-button control for ease of access to information (isn’t it nice not have to fumble with tiny buttons? yeah. we think so too).

the Runner sports a super slim 11.5mm design suitable for both men and women, and features indoor tracker for tracking indoor runs with its built-in sensors, quick GPS locator, heart rate monitor, multi-platform data sync (works with TomTom MySports, MapMyFitness, RunKeeper and TrainingPeaks), a scratch and impact resistant glass, weather and waterproof (up to 5ATM or 50 meters), and boasts a long 10-hour battery life with GPS mode. as for the Multi-Sport, it has everything the Runner has, plus additional features which include a bike mount, altimeter, cadence sensor, as well as motion sensor for swimming. catch the product videos after the break.
