Hi Guys,
I just bought my first TomTom Watch (new adventurer).
I was wondering how can I monitor my ski mountaneering activity? I mean when I skin up, shall I set the "hiking" mode? or free style?
thanks in advance

Paolo

    You can use either mode as both are GPS based, but Freestyle will be more accurate as Hiking has a lower polling rate so it collects data less often. Freestyle will give you duration, distance, HR and calories based on HR.

    So you are aware, 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 six months.

    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.

    This is so sad, it looks like amazing hardware. I wanted to buy one but I noticed in few places that TomTom is leaving this space :/ Now I don't know should I try it still?

    I would not recommend it, 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 nine months. You may want to consider going with another brand from a company that is actively in the sports watch market and intends to continue producing and supporting devices.
