With many fitness trackers / watches out, one feature can make all the difference in use and purchasing one tracker over the other. TomTom has become a reliable name in the GPS Fitness Watch game. They have a few devices to choose from for different types of athletes. The TomTom Spark fitness watch comes in four different versions to fit different needs. While the original Spark Fitness watch comes with tracking and GPS, the TomTom Spark Cardio tracks and has a heart-rate monitor. The TomTom Spark Music fitness watch allows you store music but doesn’t have a heart rate monitor, and the TomTom Spark Cardio + Music fitness watch has both a built-in heart rate monitor and music storage.
