The new Spark TomTom 3 is a smart watch that doesn’t need floor glued to the smartphone. Made to be precise, simple and sturdy, it is a good option for athletes. And makes music.
When we think a smartwatch clock usually associate to an “extension” of the smartphone. Something that allows receiving notifications, know who’s calling or sending messages and, if you can monitor the number of steps we take throughout the day and sleep, so much the better. TomTom Spark 3 Cardio is not one of those “smart watches”, this is made specifically for athletes.
It was a surprise to realize that this smartwatch clock wouldn’t give warnings of notifications. In fact, he’s not constantly connected to the smartphone. But also realize that this is not the point, the TomTom Spark 3 Cardio is designed to be used without being close to any other device.
The unconventional design for a smartwatch clock turns out to become ideal for sport
The features that stand out are:
- 24/7 Monitoring. Is constantly monitoring the steps taken throughout the day and night, automatically senses when you’re asleep to make a control of our sleep;
- Monitoring by GPS. With an integrated GPS, the Spark 3 was thought to be used individually and monitor the full race, with the route included in the final data, without needing to take the smartphone;
- all sports in your place. Running, cycling, swimming, treadmill, gym, indoor cycling and free style, are all the modes available that allow you to tailor the specific activity monitoring is about to perform;
- 3 GB of internal memory and bluetooth headsets. The version that the observer received for testing includes a wireless headset, a very positive point for a gadget that is to be used independently. The internal memory of the watch is more than enough to take the essential songs for training;
- autonomy. Taking into account the amount of functionality in a small gadget, battery can handle without problems, a week with constant use;
- water resistance up to 40 metres deep.
Life with the Spark
The feeling you have when you put the watch on your wrist for the first time is something strange. Does not have a common design in this kind of devices and the fact of not having a touch screen may not seem logical, currently, for many users. The screen does not allow one to choose an appearance, the look is just a plus not have colors.
The control of all the clock is done through four physical buttons located below the screen. This may be a strange control method, but it makes sense given the type of use to which it is intended. A touch screen can have many advantages but not when we’re in the middle of a run or a swim in a pool.
Counting steps is presented in two formats: daily and weekly. The idea is that the user may have two types of different objectives
The sports watch has the Quick GPS functionality, which allows for the location in less than a minute. You can prepare the start of the workout while you’re doing the heating and, thus, the clock goes looking for the GPS signal and starts to stabilize the heart rate measurement before starting the exercise.
During any activity you can choose the information that matters to keep an eye on. Heart rate, steps, distance, calories or the stopwatch, you decide what you want to see during training.
