TomTom navigates into new wearables.

Boot Camp feature for Monday, June 8, 2015

TomTom’s latest fitness wearables.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    TomTom may be best known for its navigation devices, but it has also been mapping out a future in wearables.   The company’s new Multi-Sport Cardio watch is attractively designed and features a touch bad rather than a touch screen.  Of course, GPS is there too along with an optical heart rate monitor.  President Jocelyn Vigreux says the design and functionality go hand in hand….

“I don’t want to be thinking about the devices that I have on my body.  So it needs to fit, it needs to be light, it needs to give the information that I need with the least amount of intrusion.”

If there’s a golfer on your Father’s Day list…another device worthy of consideration is the TomTom Golfer.   It’s a watch that shows key data from more than 34 thousand courses from around the world …and uses GPS to automatically know which course it is on…and the hole you’re playing.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
