I noticed John Lewis has slashed the prices of these in store and put them in the clearance bit. Are TomTom exiting the market? Good as a basic running watch but the software was never great even back in the day.
Great GPS watch, used mine just this morning for ParkRun. Pairs with Strava as well for the social exercisers among us. Sometimes Bluetooth is patchy when syncing with your phone, I find mine works best when I'm connected to WiFi (bizarrely) ensure that the App doesnt close and I keep the screen awake until it connects. I have the music model and have had no issues with bluetooth headphones of all makes and budgets, from premium to budget, but expect a minority of naysayers to say they're rubbish at music when they're brilliant for the price.

THIS IS NOT A SMART WATCH. The notifications feature is poor at best. But for GPS activities it is tip top.

Yes Tom Tom are pulling out of the fitness market, pity really the more competition for Garmin the better.

As someone who uses Garmins a lot, I have to say the Fenix 5 really is the pinnacle of everything I look for in a smartwatch, it lasts weeks (or a week if using the GPS a lot), gets notifications which are simple and useful, accurate tracking and a good UI on the watch and phone. It’s so good I don’t even bother wearing Swiss watches any more as it looks natural on my wrist. Hate to compare it to the Apple Watch but that looks like a mini computer and has laughable battery life, it does more but I can’t ever think of craving for apps on a tiny display.

Tomtom could have competed years back but they just didn’t bother to innovate and the software was buggy. I guess you still have Suunto for premium fitness watches. I don’t mind spending a bit for a quality product and I’ve worn the Fenix for a year now with it only coming off to charge.
OH has the 'Music' version and is extremely pleased with it. She used the swimming clubs loan fitness band and this on the same swim and both gave the same result. Ok you could probably pay £300 and get something slightly better but why would you? Bought her's last month when TomTom had a promotion on, including an extra strap for £60.

I have also used both and TomTom was glitchy and felt unpolished and unfinished. I’m not saying Garmin Connect is perfect by any stretch but since it came out of beta last year, it’s very good - collects and organises
a lot of a data.
Great for fitness, just a shame it doesn't look better! Wish I could wear mine all the time but it looks like a sports watch.
I bought the spark music recently to have GPS and music on a run without a phone. It works really well. Not sure what the app used to be like, bit it seems very good to me now. Gives a nice map of your run afterwards. The watch holds lots of music, it's fairly simple to put music on and off....

If I wanted to wear one 24/7 I'd probably want something a bit sexier, but for going running now and again it's ideal. A bargain for the price (I paid about £60 or so)
Cheap and nasty, had a TomTom GPS watch, moved to Garmin which admittedly are more expensive but for a good reason - they work properly.
All, Tom Tom Spark and Tom Tom Spark 3 are two different versions of the watch. The Spark 3 is the latest and is considered to be a significant update. I have had the spark 3 for the last year and it has been brilliant. The deal says Spark and not Spark 3, so just a warning. The spark and runner are exactly the same watch, just Tom Tom in some infinite wisdom decided to sell it under different names! Hope this helps :-)
Ok, just checked the website, it is the outlet selling off the older version. I have not used it personally, but the reviews were not great when I researched a year ago. Anybody looking to buy this, please be aware that you are looking at the old version. The price looks good though!
The GPS is poor on these unless you sync with the app every three days.

I thought the sync might be to get the current GPS location from your device...but actually TomTom send the expected position of all GPS satellites as an update...but only for three days. If you haven't had an update with the current GPS locations then, even after an hour of searching, you won't be able to obtain a GPS lock.

That's not too bad if the app works...but despite having a phone on their comparability list (Sony z3c) I've never been able to get the app to work. After a few weeks customer services gave up 9n me, telling me I needed to update the Bluetooth on my handset...which isn't possible as it's a chip, not a app. I sync using a laptop...which is a lot less convenient.

The music watch works well, easy enough to getmusic on and paired first time with a cheap pair of Anker wireless headphones.
I bought this recently at the Argos ebay store for a fiver less. This is also a deal for the small sized band (check the size guide). The syncing is a little buggy - I had to remove other smart fitness products/ apps to get it to sync properly; the Tomtom App has to be in the foreground and the watch needs to be "awake" but after working this out it's been just fine and the GPS has picked up with no probs after the initial uses. As it seamlessly syncs with Strava, it works for me as a runner looking for a reasonably priced GPS watch and is half the price of a cheaper Forerunner. Recommended on that basis.

To be fair my Tom Tom finds a GPS signal when I am still indoors tying my shoes, much faster than a similar price Garmin.
