Hi Folks,

Looking into buying a fitness watch. I was recommended to buy the Tom Tom Runner 3 watch, which includes Cardio + HR + Music. I have been seeing mixed feedback on the site and mixed reviews. Can someone genuinely tell me if this watch monitors HR 24/7 and if it lives up to the expectations that it says it does? I am really interested in this watch, although I want to make sure before spending any money on this.

Thanks
Cathal

    The watch monitors HR 24/7 taking at reading every 10 minutes. Whether it lives up tot the expectations, that depends on your expectations. I would take care with your buying decision considering TT has left the wearables market and is not producing any new devices (and never even released the Adventurer in the US), I would assume at this point any updates will be limited to bug fixes. I would not expect much more development so what you get in the box will likely be all there is. There are also major connectivity and battery drain issues that have not been resolved in over four months. I would personally look elsewhere.

    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.
