Things we don't like about Tomtom (Adventurer)
Let me start with things I like.
-the design of the watch
-simplicity of the navigation button(s)
I've had many GPS watches from different brands, Garmin, Polar, Suunto and Timex before Tomtom.
Here are the things I think need to be improved if Tomtom ever returns to the wearables market.
*The User Iterface
- For me, being able to change data fields with metrics by own choice is very important. Tomtom offers this feature but the digits at the bottom left/right are too small. The upper data field could be a lot smaller. This way we could have bigger left/right data fields. And why on earth does the custom data fields show the same metric twice, both in the upper data field and left data field?
Another thing I'd like to see is that going up/down the menu would be continuous or rolling. Imagine you are about to select an activity and scroll down to snowboard. You try to go down hoping you'll start over at the top but that will never happen.
The third thing about UI that I lack is being able to create own sport profiles.
Forth thing I lack is history/diary page so you can see your sessions in the watch.
* The Screen
There's a lot of dead space outside the screen, especially at the bottom near the logo.
The backlight should always be on while pressing the buttons. Having to cover the screen with your palm/fingers to activate the backlight leaves the screen with "hand prints" and finger prints.
Do you agree with me? I would like to hear your comments.
