Wareable

Becomes an even better running partner

from Wareable

TomTom hasn’t made radical changes with the Spark 3, which might disappoint some. What it has done is made it more appealing for runners. It’s done that by adding a feature that is commonly associated with more expensive running watches. And it works. It also remains one of the easiest running watches to get out of the box and start using as well. GPS and heart rate accuracy is still great too. It’s not the perfect package yet though, particularly from a software perspective. But if you’re looking for a feature-packed running watch that delivers where it matters most, the Spark 3 remains our top choice.

TrustedReviews

An all-encompassing GPS sports watch

from TrustedReviews

The Spark 3 is an ideal GPS watch for those looking to start out in running, cycling or swimming as well as regular exercisers. It lacks some of the more intricate metrics that rival devices offer that are likely to appeal to more hardcore exercisers, but the price and clear layout make the Spark 3 an attractive proposition.

The Indian Express

For those who love to hike, train

from The Indian Express

TomTom Spark 3 Music+Cardio is for those into multi-sports, and not if your main purpose is to hit the gym once a month or just count steps. I don’t hike so much myself, and for me the Strava app is good enough to record my cycling sessions, so I don’t see the need for a separate watch. However, those into hard core training, and like to combine their love for running, swimming and cycling can definitely consider this.

The best fitness tracker for jamming out while you work up a sweat

from Stuff

The Spark 3 aims to be the best fitness tracker on the market, and through a comprehensive combination of features, it just about manages to do it. It'll track every sport going (including swimming), has great battery life, and is simple to use. It plays nicely with all the fitness apps you’re probably using already, including Strava and Runkeeper, has great GPS accuracy, and will play music to any Bluetooth headphones.

Heart rate, GPS, fitness and music – but nothing more

from OxGadgets

If you’re expecting another smartwatch with fitness capabilities, you’re looking for the wrong device. This watch delivers one function, and does it well. The reliance on a PC for everything and the Bluetooth connection issues did make it a slightly frustrating experience.

Ars Technica

A GPS trainer for newbies and experts alike

from Ars Technica

We're seeing this a lot with fitness trackers now: the base layer always includes daily activity tracking, even if the device itself isn't something you'd want to wear all day long. While wearing the Spark 3 24/7 wasn't the worst thing in the world, I wouldn't continue going forward because it's too chunky and the most value I get from it is through tracking workouts. Also, something like Garmin's Vivoactive HR is better to wear all day; the HR may be just as unattractive, but at least it gets smartphone notifications. You can go with an upper-tier Garmin or Fitbit if you want a device that's less conspicuous. But if you're in need of a fairly affordable and accurate GPS watch, TomTom has a model of the Spark 3 that will suit you.
