TomTom enhances its award winning GPS watch range with an integrated music player and 24/7 activity tracking

TomTom is launching the all-new TomTom Runner 2 GPS Watch with integrated music player, making it even easier to get the most out of a run. Now runners no longer have to strap a phone to their arm or worry about wires getting in their way while they train. TomTom Runner 2 gives them everything they need in one easy-to-use device on their wrist.

3GB of music storage on the TomTom Runner 2 means users can now leave their smartphone at home while running and listen to over 500 songs* directly from their watch. The GPS watch streams music to a wide range of Bluetooth® headphones, and comes preloaded with Running Trax, a bespoke thirty minute mix of motivating, high energy, upbeat dance anthems from some of the world’s best DJs, curated by Ministry of Sound (www.ministryofsound.com). Playlists can also be easily downloaded to the TomTom Runner 2 from iTunes or Windows Media® Player.

“We know that music plays an important role when it comes to motivating and improving running performance, but wearing a smartphone is all too often an uncomfortable experience,” says Corinne Vigreux, Managing Director, TomTom. “Our 4th generation GPS running watch combines the motivation of music, a built-in heart rate monitor, real-time GPS information and 24/7 activity tracking, to make it even easier for runners to track progress, improve their overall fitness and ultimately get more from their run.”

TomTom Runner 2 has a built-in heart rate monitor to accurately track heart rate, taking away the bulky chest strap and helping runners to train smarter using heart rate zones. The multi-sport mode means all indoor and outdoor sporting activities can be tracked including running, cycling, swimming, treadmill, freestyle and gym workouts.

Highly accurate GPS tracking is also included in TomTom Runner 2 to provide real-time information including time, distance, speed, pace and calories burnt. 

Steps, active minutes, distance, calories burned and sleep duration are tracked using the 24/7 activity tracking  feature in the TomTom Runner 2.  Daily and weekly goals can be set and runners can easily follow their progress on their watch or via the TomTom MySports app.

Stats can be uploaded via the MySports app and reviewed wirelessly on multiple platforms including TomTom MySports, RunKeeper, Nike+ and more. 

The TomTom Runner 2 GPS Watch range will include the following models:

  • TomTom Runner 2 GPS Watch 
  • TomTom Runner 2 Cardio GPS Watch 
  • TomTom Runner 2 Music GPS Watch 
  • TomTom Runner 2 Cardio + Music GPS Watch
  • TomTom Runner 2 Music GPS Watch + Bluetooth®  Headphones
  • TomTom Runner 2 Cardio + Music GPS Watch + Bluetooth® Headphones

TomTom Runner 2 Cardio + Music will cost £189.99. 

The full range of TomTom Runner 2 will be available in October in-store and on www.tomtom.com/running
