TomTom has announced a new addition to its industry-leading range of wearables: the TomTom Touch Cardio.

“The TomTom Touch is the ideal entry-level fitness tracker for those looking to ramp up their fitness routine,” says Chantal Grobler, country manager of TomTom.

“TomTom has designed the Touch Cardio to offer all the features people generally need to monitor their fitness, and the attractive price point means that virtually anyone can have access to vital functions, like heart-rate and sleep monitoring.”

The TomTom Touch Cardio monitors heart rate while tracking daily step counts, the number of calories burned, sleep and active time. Heart rate monitoring is particularly useful as it adds to a more accurate calculation of calorie burn, measures the true intensity of your efforts, and provides insight about your fitness level.

Following the successful launch of the TomTom Touch Cardio and Body Composition fitness tracker in September 2016 – the first wearable on the market to offer a body composition feature – the TomTom Touch Cardio boasts an elegant new design at a more affordable price point.

Wearers can download the TomTom Sports mobile app to automatically receive activity and performance data, such as steps, heart rate and calories burned, along with activity trends and comparisons, directly to their smart phones.
