I think this is the cheapest this one has been. It's the base model so not the HR Monitor or Music model. Obviously It depends what you're looking for in a fitness watch. Reviews for the Spark look go…

Product blurb

Measure your active minutes

Whether you are tracking sprints, strolls or steps, the Spark Fit monitors every active minute to add up all of the statistics you need. Time, distance, calories burned, steps, pace, everything you need to know about your lifestyle and exercise routines.

With several modes available, it can adapt to suit your training style. Whether you are running, biking or swimming, in the gym or out in the open, it can closely monitor your progress. Providing you with live statistics on the go, you'll know when it's time to push or when to ease back.

With an optional heart rate monitor (sold separately) you can also track your heart rate both on the go and when reviewing your statistics after your workout. (See Link for more info)

there are Far Better Less Expensive products out there.....it says Swimming....and yet you clearly can't swim WITH THIS MODEL....so why mention Swimming?
Similarly it says Calorie Counting.. .if this is Accurate How can you track Calories if there is No Heart Rate Monitor?.....

Save your £££ and look closer for. better less expensive products....

Oh and...before someone says it....Oregon Scientific do a £40ish model that You Can Swim & Has Heart Rate Monitor built-in and Counts Actual Calories Burned....last bought on Amazon 12 months ago...highly recommend .. Rob :D

You can swim with this, I own one and have done so many times. The watch is waterpoof to 5ATM. No idea where you got your information from but it's wrong.

5ATM is the static pressure it can sustain without leaking, which isn't the same as the pressure it would sustain attached to a moving arm, basically, you'll get away with light swimming, but it's borderline if swimming vigorously, swimming under water too deep or diving.

Personally I would treat this level of water resistance as being able to go running in the rain, swimming is pretty borderline.

If they use the term 'waterproof' then the manufacturer is lying, if you went down to 5 ATM in a current, even just slightly moving, it's likely it would start to leak.

wtf is light swimming? You either swim or don't. You can't get in lightly.

It hasn't leaked for me yet and I've done very vigorous swimming with mine.

​you might be able to swim but you can't count T calories burnt - to count calories you need a heart rate monitor....

I did NOT say you. ant swim in this - I have No IDEA where your Answer came from....perhaps read before responding...

light swimming is what fat people do.
The same as when you see them walking down the road with a water bottle, and when they get home they post on Facebook that they just got back from a gruling 5k run.

Are you Adam Peaty? I'd suggest he swims a lot faster than you - there are differences between strokes in terms of forces, I'd suggest if you swam butterfly with one of these on, it's quite likely to leak. I could go into the Physics, but frankly it's boring and if you can't work it out just from considering the logic, then proving it through science isn't going to help.

It is also worth considering just because you can't see water, doesn't mean it's not leaking, often a small amount will get in, that's not visible, at least not until long after you realise what's happening, I've got a watch that steams up when I go our running early in the morning, but not at any other time of day or condition, so there's clearly water in there, but not enough to see in day to day use, even small amounts of water are not good, but you may get away with it.

Even with a heart rate it's not going to really indicate calories unless you can measure VO2 max, and even then you'd need to ensure your entire measured workout is within 40-80% of that VO2 max figure, this is because you need to know the oxygen consumption to accurately calculate calorie burn.

Personally I don't bother looking at calories, just make sure my I manage the distance at a decent speed to keep my heart rate reasonably high, knowing that I only burn enough calories walking to and back from Sainsburys, 2 miles away, is not even a single can of Skol, shows that burning calories is not a sensible target vs just getting fitter and eating fewer calories.

I noticed Argos are doing Tom Tom cardio runner with built in heart rate monitor for same price. Is this the same but without the heart monitor?
