Tomtom Runner Cardio GPS Launches Heart Rate Monitor

TomTom , better known for its maps and guided navigation services, has just introduced us a new member of its family of sports accessories with integrated GPS.

Its name makes quite clear what it is intended to offer with the gadget: Tom Tom Runner Cardio GPS.

In addition to playing with our location, as was the original Runner, a system for monitoring our heart rate is integrated. A functionality that phones like the Samsung Galaxy S5have decided to incorporate, and it seems that we will see in new devices, although of course in the Runner we find more sense.

Here there is no touch screen, as we are accustomed the new smartwatches that are appearing. The way to interact with the device is through a directional pad-physical button, which is located at the bottom of the phone, on the strap.

As you can see in the video presentation of the product, we are before a device that is placed on our wrist, without more accessories , since the sensor for our constants is located inside the phone:
