The TomTom Multisports Cardio is TomTom’s range topping GPS device now featuring an in-built optical heart rate sensor. The addition of the word ‘Cardio’ to the previously released device means that the watch now incorporates the very clever Mio sensor, giving the ability to detect heart rate direct from the wrist.
Being a multisport device, the TomTom Multisports Cardio (I think I’m gonna shorten it to the “Cardio” for this review) can track all of your running, cycling & swimming activities. It even has a mode to track indoor running on a treadmill without the need for a footpod. All very handy when all you need is the device and no separate heart rate strap to start your training.
TomTom also has a its own smartphone app to make use of the wireless capabilities via Bluetooth. Data transfer can be utilised straight to your phone or via USB direct to your PC. There’s also ability to integrate with third-party applications (such as Strava) at the point of upload.
