Does the Adventurer measure Cadence?

    Yes, for running it will give you your strides per minute, but only when you are done, you cannot see t as a metric during an activity. For cycling you would obviously also need a Cadence Sensor paired with the watch. If you asking because you are thinking of buying one, 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), and has ceased all development. You may want to go with another brand from a company that is active in the sports watch market and intends to continue producing and supporting devices.

    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.

    The funny thing is that the watch does measure and store also second-by-second running cadence during the activity. TomTom just doesn't make it available or visible anywhere (for whatever reason). If you use third-party utilities like the Linux ttwatch (https://github.com/ryanbinns/ttwatch), you can actually dig up the second-by-second cadence information from the synchronized ttbin-files.
