TomTom adds a Spark to fitness watch category

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, October 8, 2015

TomTom adds a Spark to the fitness watch category.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    TomTom is refreshing its line of GPS fitness watches with the TomTom Spark.   And what is really different is the addition of 3 gigabytes of storage for music that you can listen to via Bluetooth headphones while you’re out for a run or hike.   President Jocelyn Vigreux says that means you don’t have to worry about carrying a phone or MP3 player along too…

“That’s really the big deal about this product.  Really bringing again, making that consumer experience during the exercise, during the workout, as free from any distractions as possible.”

It monitors your heart rate too and is water resistant to 40 meters.  The TomTom Spark Cardio + Music GPS Fitness Watch is available for pre order now for about 250 dollars at TomTom.com/fitness.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
