TomTom announces Spark fitness tracker with music player

TomTom has officially announced Spark, its latest fitness tracker. The wearable is also focused on music and you can store some of your favourite tracks on the device.


The company was one of first to get into the wearable segment, but the likes of Apple and others have made life difficult for the firm. TomTom is looking to bounce back with its newest products and is hopeful of gaining back the lost momentum.

TomTom Spark is one of the first multi-sport fitness watches that combines heart rate monitor, GPS activity, sleep tracker and built in music system. The wearable is also water resistant up to 40 meters.

According to the company, the built in music player will help increase the efficiency of the user while working out. Also, if you are one of those who listen to music while jogging, then you can now leave your phones behind at home and store all your tracks in the watch itself.

The users can add music through iTunes or Windows Media Player. TomTom has also partnered with Ministry of Sound to offer a playlist of songs and that come pre-installed.  At the moment, the watch doesn’t support smartphone notifications, but the company says that future software updates will bring the missing functionality.

TomTom Spark will be up for grabs in different sizes of wrist strap and colors. You can pre-order one today for €249 and the device will be shipped to you in October.
