A good product that falls short of greatness.

Engadget Summary

After a previous partnership with Nike, TomTom is now running solo with the first fitness watch they can call their very own. With years of experience in creating GPS devices for consumers, it should be no surprise that the Runner has what TrustedReviews calls a "foolproof menu system." TomTom even built their own portal to use with the Runner, but it's still in beta and Pocket-Lint says the "site is woeful in what it allows you to do and the level of data it gives you compared to the competition." While pleased overall with TomTom's first solo watch effort, DC Rainmaker has concerns over the use of Bluetooth Smart instead of ANT+, saying "there’s just a lot of athletes that have ANT+ gear, and there’s very little Bluetooth Smart variety (or product) in the market today." The TomTom Runner is an ideal watch for newer runners who just need a simple to use device, but for athletes who may have a quiver of ANT+ devices they should consider something different.
