IFA, Berlin – August 31, 2017 TomTom today launches Fitness Age, Fitness Points and Personalised Workouts across their sports watch range[1]. Combined, these new features give users the tools they need to work out smarter, achieve their fitness goals faster and live a healthier lifestyle.
  • TomTom Fitness Age shows users how fit they really are;
  • TomTom Fitness Points give users direct feedback about their exercise to improve their Fitness Age over time;
  • TomTom Personalised Workouts provide step-by-step exercise guidance tailored to an individual’s fitness level and exercise goals.

Corinne Vigreux, co-founder and managing director TomTom Consumer said: “I always wonder when I exercise whether my efforts have any impact on my fitness level and I know I am not the only one. By introducing Fitness Age and Fitness Points we have now designed a reliable way to measure your fitness level. We are proud to introduce a ‘personal coach on your wrist’ to motivate you when you need to do more and acknowledge your efforts when you’ve done enough.”

[h3]TomTom Fitness Age & Fitness Points[/h3]
TomTom Fitness Age provides users with an age relating to their personal fitness level. It is based on their VO2 max and compares their fitness level to their age and gender. VO2 max (the maximum amount of oxygen an individual can consume per minute, for their body weight) is a key indicator of cardio fitness and a globally accepted measurement.

Based on your Fitness Age, you will earn Fitness Points every time you exercise. The greater the effort, the more points you achieve. Gain 100 Fitness Points per day to guide you in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. If you hit around 500 Fitness Points, three times a week, your Fitness Age will improve over time.

Urho Kujala, Professor of Sports & Exercise Medicine at the University of Jyväskylä, involved in the research used to develop TomTom Fitness Age, said: “Recent research has proven that the recommended exercise to optimally improve people’s health and fitness is personal and especially determined by their current fitness level. TomTom Fitness Age is based on this research, and takes these individuals factors into account. Therefore it is an overall better guide to becoming fitter than just the existing and absolute metrics such as steps, calories, and active time and users are more likely to live a healthier and fitter life.”

[h3]Personalised Workouts[/h3]
Personalised Workouts offer users fifty running and cycling workouts directly on their TomTom Sports watch. Intensity and duration are automatically adjusted to reflect an individual’s fitness level. Personalised Workouts can help improve your Fitness Age, as well as support individual fitness ambitions such as running a marathon as well as fat burning, cycling or running speed and strength goals.

[h3]Additional updates[/h3]
Phone notifications and Autopause are now also available across the TomTom sports watch range. Phone notifications allow you to see incoming phone calls and text messages on your watch. With Autopause, your TomTom Sports watch pauses automatically when you stop moving, preventing temporary breaks in activity from distorting your performance data.

TomTom Fitness Age and Fitness Points have been developed to give guidance and motivate everyone, no matter what their fitness level or fitness routine they enjoy. All the new features will be available via a software update across all our cardio Sports Products[2] and with the TomTom Sports app from September 2017.

    This is great! Can't wait. I was a little confused since on August 29 an update to the Sports iOS app also rolled out, but this wasn't it.

    Will there be a way to isolate the VO2 Max number itself?

    Hi Abram,

    The iOS app indeed got out a bit early ;) The watch software to bring these features will also be out shortly as well. I'll announce it in the Sports section so stay tuned :D

    Cheers, Mikko

    It is a staged rollout, being released in increments to allow them to monitor issues. They released to 5% this week and will do more next week and the week after if there are no major problems. Last I heard they are looking at the end of the month for full rollout. there is nothing you can do to make it come faster, we just have to wait our turn.

    Phone notifications allow you to see incoming phone calls and text messages ? I have updated a couple of days ago, syncing and alerts are on but this feature appears to not be working on my spark 3?

    It is a staged rollout, being released in increments to allow them to monitor issues. They released to 5% two weeks ago and more last week and will continue this week and the week after if there are no major problems. Last I heard they have released to 100% so you should get it soon. You will only get it syncing by computer. You also need to be on the latest Connect software. Once it is updated you will see Fitness Points added to each activity and can see trends for Fitness Points and VO2Max on the Progress tab in MySports.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.

    Can you try a factory reset in the Settings of TomTom Sports Connect? In most cases it fixes this.

    I dont find out the personalised workouts in the web my sports. In the promotional pictures shows how we could personalise our own workouts in the web.

    memphis_ESP and fémur,

    You're both still on 1.6.26. The 1.7.53 build that has personalised workouts has only been rolled out to a small number of users.

    Greetings,
    Jürgen
  • fémurfémur Posts: 7 [Apprentice Traveler]
    Alright, thanks Jürgen!

    Looking forward to it then

    I think it's only in the phone app (trends tab) or on the web app (progress tab/body track), not on the watch.
