TomTom has launched the Runner Cardio GPS sport watch. Tom Tom also revealed that the device has been equipped with built-in Heart Rate Monitor, eliminating the need for a separate chest strap.
According to the company, the Runner Cardio makes it easy to train in the optimal heart rate zone. Runners can select one of five intensity zones to match their training goals and will receive alerts to know whether they need to speed up or slow down. Runners can see real-time heart rate, distance, pace and other essential running information at a glance, while running.
Daan Hendrickx, Country Manager of TomTom Southern Africa, stated that: “Once again, TomTom is making innovative technology accessible to everyone. We know that heart rate monitoring is the single most accurate way to understand how the body is responding to exercise. Now, with the launch of the Runner Cardio, all runners can easily use heart rate training to improve their performance.”
According to TomTom, the Runner Cardio accurately measures heart rate with a Mio optical sensor, which monitors changes in blood flow by shining light through the skin.
