Is there a difference in hardware and/or performance/quality between the Runner 2 and 3?

Hi TomTom forum,

At the moment I have two TT watches, a runner 2 with music and a runner 3 without music.
Both with the following specs:
  • version: 1.7.64
  • QuiGPS (tick mark visible)
Is there a difference between both devices in terms of quality? For example, related to GPS or heart rate sensor? I like to know which device is best, so I can keep that one and give the other away to someone else.
I know, it's a bit selfish to keep the best device, but it's even more selfish to have a watch not used at all right ;)

I don't use the music feature, so that is not a factor. Also I run and swim.

I hope someone can help me out.

Thanks a lot in advance.
Best regards,

    They are basically the same watch, the 3 is just a slightly updated version. I would always keep the newer one (the 3) especially if you don't use the music. As far as i know there were no major hardware changes between them so go with whichever one works best for you or is still under warranty.

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