Did it come with the wireless headphones?
I'm struggling to find the watch spec on the site? Is this the one with gps and heart rate monitor?
Cardio has hear rate monitor, non cardio has no heart rate monitor

I think that is the version without the heart rate monitor.
Looks like the original spark, called Runner in the uk and the latest one is the Runner 3. So this is old stock they are getting rid of, they are also rumoured to be leaving the wearable market so don’t expect much in the way of updates.
decent GPS watch nonetheless especially at this orice
Yes, this is the original version, not the Spark 3. Don't know what the differences are but a good price for a cardio watch!

No mine did not so just got a pair of Bluetooth ones...although sick of listening the inbuilt music
Ordered. Price is pretty much decent. Thank you poster.

It's a little bit of a faff, but...

Setup a playlist on itunes or windows media player (or possibly another player?)
Connect your watch / open the tomtom connect app on your computer.
Click on the music button on the app
The app scans for playlists (can take a while)
Click on the ones you want to add and it loads the list and files...

Done

This is the spark (also known as the runner 2), the runner 3 adds the ability to load a route to follow (not satnav, it has no maps, it would just be point to point...)

I have the music + cardio version and for all but the most serious training could get by without the HR sensor that the cardio adds...

The music for £60 is ridiculously good value!

Would recommend it at this price to any runner.
Don,t trust TomTom anymore after they have left me high and dry with my satnav lie-time updates.
Won,t buy anything TomTom again
Use once then in the drawer

I think I ended up just dragging and dropping some songs across in the end..like you would an external drive. I never use the function though!
Ps. If you don't want to buy the tom tom headphones I find my mpow cheetah headphones pair with it. All my other bluetooth headphones didn't.. perhaps because they store 4.0 and not 4.1
Great for mud runs and work. Had one for two years. Battery life is good when not using GPS.
Decent (basic) GPS watch. Getting songs on is a bit of a faff as mentioned, creat playlist and app will import it. TomTom app is a lot better now, bit synching via Bluetooth is hit and miss (on android at least).
Can link account direct to Strava and upload activities.
Recent update allowed basic notifications to come through on watch (SMS, phone calls).
TomTom leaving wearables but have promised updates.

Get out running then chubz


Used mine to train for an complete a 10k last October.

Fantastic watch
When it works it works well.

But I haven't been able to pair this with the android app despite more than a dozen interactions with the TomTom help desk. I have to sync it with my laptop. My phone is on the list of compatible devices (Experia compact z3).

You have to sync the watch every 3 days to keep the GPS up to date. The sync loads the watch with the expected GPS satellite positions for the next 3 days so it can get a better signal...if it doesn't have this it's rare to get a GPS lock and won't record your run.

I've paired it with a pair of Anker Bluetooth headphones with no issues.

There genuinely doesn't seem to be another alternative to this - a watch that stores local music and records GPS. Even newer Fitbit devices have used streaming that requires a phone... If I'm running with a phone why would i need a GPS watch!
Don't buy - TomTom are a joke. They're pulling out of the market.
Great price, but I ditched TomTom due to various accuracy issues when running. Switched to the Moto Sport 360 which then broke and then switched to the Garmin FR235 and haven't regretted it (neither are comparible in price)!

Excellent price and certainly worth a punt at £76, having spoken to mates with it the majority of the issues I had with mine have been ironed out.

Heat added.
As people have said Spark and Runner are the same watch, just with different straps and marketing.

The difference between the Spark and the Spark 3 is the magnetic trail navigation. Cool if you are going to use it, for me I know the paths and carry my mobile just in case. From a forum " have a spark, my wife has a spark 3. The watches look identical. The heart rate sensor looks identical as well. The software is also exactly the same. The only difference I can see is the track navigation that is only present in the spark 3 (which works pretty well btw) and that is has a hw compass.

I have the cardio+music version, so mine has music, while she has the cardio, so music is missing there.

We regularly run together, the gps track/distance the watch records also seems very similar, so my guess is the gps unit is the same as well." This looks like a good price.
I have the non cardio spark it's great I wear it swimming it does miss about 1 length in 30 or so , running which is great it's syncs easily with strava and cycling . I think the steps is a bit random but my gf has one too and loved it I have the black hers is purple . Battery life when used for non activities is a few days pretty good
Forget this get the amazfit bip much better watch

The new Garmin 645, which is launching soon has this (DC rainmaker has a review up) but yeah, it's a strange ommission since the tech to do it has been there for a while

buy.garmin.com/en-…476

It's also pure coin

Had this one, had to reset numerous times over 3 months, then it just died, got money back and bought a Garmin vivoactive HR.
If you go with this be careful as any updates pose a risk.
Great watch for running/cycling entry level, only issue in long term is the battery life.
Don't buy, I have upper model of this with heart monitor, not good for sleeping monitor, step counter, and heart monitoring, plus if you use GPS battery will drain in 1 hour, buy Huami amazfit , looks good does the same job, and nearly same price, I have both but I prefer Huami,

1) Connect the watch to a pc
2) Select the mp3 files you want to more to the watch.
3) Drag and drop the files to the tom tom folder.

Just like the good old days before music streaming services were around

Similarly I can't get the app to connect to my android phone, fine with my iPad. The watch Winn connect, but not from within the app. Weird. Seems even within Bluetooth there are variations of the standard.
I have this, its ok, but ended up buying the amazfit pace for £80 (have seen it on sale for £70). Gearbest.
The GPS is probably not quite as accurate, but otherwise it is a much better smart watch, with notifications, 36h battery life running GPS (~5h if GPS while using Bluetooth for music). Also the strap on these gets strained every time you pop it out to charge, which has then broken the strap. Have ordered a cheap imitation replacement for £7. A nuisance...
This watch is a good GPS training watch, but not a great everyday watch like the amazfit, which is better overall.
Which fitness watch would I need for I work underground in caverns. Wanna check fitness but I cant check it if it runs off GPS
I use mine all the time. Great for runs and being able to check pace has improved my times. Not something I'd want to wear everyday but I just put it on when I go for a run. Really makes a difference being able to listen to music without having to carry a phone.
When was the last update? Do all the models come with wireless headphones? Would want to wear daily would I be better with a huwawei sport or s3 to look less geeky
