The Adventurer manual says: Note: Trail orientation is controlled by a setting. Start an activity, press down from the "please wait/get going" screen and then select ROTATION. Choose ON to orientate the trail in the direction you are heading and OFF to orientate the trail to the North.
I'm not sure if this would work, but you can already choose Training / Laps / Manual as your workout type. Then you can create a "lap" and move to the next phase by covering the watch with your hand (this is available at least on Adventurer, but I would guess probably on other watches as well). In TomTom sports, each…

So my understanding based on that is that cycling does not affect VO2max…
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…
I recently ordered Screenknight protector for my Adventurer, and it's been fine. A little pricey as it comes with just one protector, but we are talking just a couple of euros here, anyway. Brotect also sells compatible protectors for Spark 3 / Adventurer.
To my knowledge, TomTom licensed the Fitness points and Fitness age algorithms from FirstBeat, just like Garmin (https://www.firstbeat.com/en/consumer-products/). So while the algorithms are probably not 100 % same, they should be based on the same principles.
I'm having the same problem with my TomTom Adventurer and Honor 8 phone. I was told my TomTom support that these would "be solved in future updates", we'll see. As a temporary solution, at least in my case turning off bluetooth on the phone and turning it back again (without shutting down the TomTom Sports app) solves the…
