watch. Your watch will then pair with the MySports app automatically and you can carry on using it.
Wearing your watch
The way you wear your watch is important because it can affect the performance of the Heart Rate
Sensor. For more information on how this sensor works, see The heart rate sensor.
9

Wear the watch in the normal way, with the watch face on top of your wrist and the bottom of
the watch touching your skin, away from the wrist bone.

Do the strap up so that it is tight to your wrist without being uncomfortable.

You get the most accurate results from the heart rate sensor when you are warmed up.
Important: To improve accuracy, KEEP STILL until your heart rate is detected.
Cleaning your watch
It is recommended that you clean your watch once a week if you use it frequently.





Wipe the watch with a damp cloth as needed. Use mild soap to remove oil or dirt.
Do not expose your watch to strong chemicals such as gasoline, cleaning solvents, acetone,
alcohol, or insect repellents. Chemicals can damage the watch’s seal, case and finish.
After swimming, rinse your watch with tap water and dry it with a soft cloth.
Clean the heart rate sensor area and connection pads with mild soap and water as needed.
Do not scratch the heart rate sensor area. Protect it from damage.
The heart rate sensor
If your watch has a built-in heart rate sensor it can help you train more efficiently.
You can choose to use the built-in heart rate sensor or an external sensor if the watch is mounted
on your bike handlebars, or not to use a sensor at all.
Note: If your watch doesn’t have an integrated heart rate monitor, you can also buy a separate
chest strap to record the same information.
How the sensor works
Your heartbeat is measured by using light to measure changes in your blood flow. This is done on
the top of your wrist by shining light through the skin onto the capillary veins just below the skin
and detecting the changing light reflections.
The performance of the heart rate sensor is not affected by skin type, body fat percentage or body
hair. It IS however affected by how you wear the watch on your wrist and by whether you have
warmed up or not.
10
Using the heart rate sensor
To get the best performance from the heart rate sensor, see Wearing your watch. Continuous heart
rate tracking is switched OFF by default.
Note: The sensor cannot measure your heart rate while swimming.
Removing your watch from the strap
You may want to remove your watch from the wrist strap in order to charge it or before placing it in
the holder before using the bike mount.
To remove your watch from the wrist strap, do the following:
1. Press inwards on the TomTom logo whilst holding the watch strap.
2. Remove the watch from the strap.
Charging your watch using the desk dock
Important: You can also use any USB wall charger to charge your watch. Place your watch in the
desk dock and then connect the USB connector from the desk dock to your USB wall charger.

Using the bike mount
If you have purchased the bike mount accessory, the mount consists of a holder for your watch and
a handlebar strap to attach the clip to your handlebars.

The voice coach is on by default and you hear the voice coach every time the watch beeps or buzzes
with a message that needs your attention. As you are listening to music, the buzzer in the watch
cannot be heard so your watch interrupts the music with a brief message.
General prompts:

Watch ready, Demo mode, Bluetooth not working when swimming.
TrainingPartner prompts:



Zone: in zone, above zone, below zone.
Goal: at 50%, 90% 100% and 110% of goal.
Race: ahead, behind, lost, won.

Activities
About activities
In the activities menu, you can start one of the activities available on your watch:
Run
Cycle
Swim
Treadmill
Freestyle
Gym
Indoor cycling
Stopwatch
When you select RUN, CYCLE or FREESTYLE, your watch uses its internal GPS receiver to measure
your speed, and to record the route you have taken.
If your watch has a heart rate sensor and the heart rate sensor is set to ON, your heart rate is shown
during your activity. This includes running, cycling, treadmill and freestyle.
When you select SWIM or TREADMILL, your watch uses its internal motion sensor to measure your
strides on the treadmill, and strokes and turns in the swimming pool. Your watch uses this
information to estimate your speed and the distance you have covered.
When you select INDOOR for indoor cycling, your watch uses the connected Cadence and Speed
Sensor to show your speed, heart rate information if available and calories burnt vs time.
Select GYM to show heart rate information and calories burnt over time. You need an external or
internal heart rate sensor for this activity.
Select FREESTYLE when you want to do an activity other than running, cycling or swimming. This
means that you can keep clean histories and totals for running, cycling and swimming.
When you select STOPWATCH, you can use your watch to show elapsed time, mark laps and see
times for your current and previous laps.
41
About calorie estimation
Calories are estimated based on the type of sport, your gender, your weight and the intensity and
duration of the exercise.
24x7 calorie estimation is based on your BMI and then adjusted for steps, active time, sports
activities, etc., to generate a theoretical total for the day. Heart rate is not used during 24x7
calorie counting because it would drain the watch battery too quickly.
Note: Not all activities are available on all watches.
Running, cycling, swimming, treadmill or indoor cycling
For running, cycling, swimming or treadmill, the calorie calculations are based on metabolic
equivalent of task tables (MET or simply metabolic equivalent).
We use the MET tables of Ainsworth BE, Haskell WL, Herrmann SD, Meckes N, Bassett Jr DR,
Tudor-Locke C, Greer JL, Vezina J, Whitt-Glover MC, Leon AS. 2011 Compendium of Physical
Activities: a second update of codes and MET values. Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise,
2011;43(8):1575-1581.
Freestyle or gym
Calories for freestyle and gym activities are based on heart rate. For other activities calories are
linked to that specific sport but for freestyle and gym, the watch doesn’t know which sport you are
doing. Hence when no heart rate measurement is available, calories are not shown for freestyle and
gym activities.
Tracker
The calorie metric measures how many calories you burn during the day including your basal
metabolic rate (BMR). Your BMR represents the minimum amount of energy that you need to keep
your body functioning, including breathing and keeping your heart beating. Because BMR is
included, your calorie metric in the tracker will be higher than your calorie metric in an activity.
About 24/7 heart rate monitoring
Your TomTom GPS Watch allows you to monitor your heart rate during the day. It takes a reading
every 10 minutes for 24/7 tracking versus every second for sports tracking.
Note: Continuous heart rate monitoring is only available on watch models with an optical sensor.
Switching on 24/7 heart rate monitoring on your watch
Continuous heart rate monitoring is OFF by default. To switch on 24/7 heart rate monitoring on your
watch, follow these steps:

3. For RUN, CYCLE and FREESTYLE activities, until your watch has a GPS fix you see the message
Please wait, and the GPS icon flashes in the top left hand corner of the screen. When it's ready
to start an activity, your watch shows the message GO and the GPS icon stops flashing.
Tip: To select a music playlist, press DOWN when you see the GO message on starting an
activity.
For Cycle activities, if you are using a Cadence and Speed Sensor, once your watch is connected to
the sensor, your watch shows the message GO. The Cadence & Speed Sensor is then used to provide
speed and distance information about your activity. Your watch may not have a GPS fix at this
point. If you would like to track the route of your activity, wait until the GPS icon stops flashing
before starting your activity.
Note: It can take a short time to find your GPS position, especially the first time you use your
watch or if the QuickGPSfix information is not up-to-date. Moving does not speed up getting a
fix so stay still and wait until your position has been found.
To ensure good GPS reception, make sure you are outdoors with a clear view of the sky. Large
objects such as tall buildings can sometimes interfere with reception.
If your watch has a heart rate sensor, you may see a message saying "Warm up" at the start of
an activity while your watch gets a GPS position. This is because the sensor performs most
accurately when you are warmed up with good circulation in your arms.
From this screen, press in one of these directions to choose an option:

RIGHT - start your activity, once your watch has a GPS fix.

For each type of activity, you can select different training programs, and select to see different
information while you are training.
Pausing and stopping an activity
Pausing and stopping an activity
During an activity, press and hold LEFT to stop the clock and pause your activity.
To restart the activity again, press RIGHT.
To stop the activity completely, press LEFT to pause the activity, then press LEFT again.
How pause works
If you upload your activity to your MySports account and view it on a map, you see your whole
course with the pause shown as a straight line.
GPS tracking stops and the start pause and end pause locations are linked together. When you start
you activity again after a pause, your location is known immediately.
The averages shown are calculated for the time that the watch wasn't paused. For example, if you
run 5 km, then pause and walk for 2 km, then start and run for another 5 km, you see your entire
route, but your average is only valid for the 10 km.
Tip: Your watch turns itself off if you leave it paused for too long to prevent draining the battery.
We recommend not leaving the watch paused for too long if possible.
Choosing which metrics to display
Before you start an activity you can choose a training program and also decide what information you
would like to see as you train.
While you train, three different metrics are available at any one time:


One main metric is shown in a larger figure in the main part of the screen.
Two minor metrics are shown at the bottom of the screen.
Changing the main metric
As you train, you can change the information shown by the larger figure by moving UP and DOWN.
The text above the main metric shows which information is currently being displayed.

Some examples of metrics available:






PACE - your current pace. For swimming, this is shown in minutes per 100m.
AVG PACE - your average pace for the current activity.
HEART RATE - your heart rate. This metric is only available if you have a Heart Rate Sensor
connected.
SPEED, PACE or BOTH - for activities other than swimming, you can choose to see speed, pace
or both metrics at once.
SWOLF - this metric is only given for swimming activities. The SWOLF score is calculated by
adding the time in seconds and the number of strokes you make to swim one length of the pool.
SWOLF shows your swimming efficiency. The lower the score, the better. The word SWOLF is a
mixture of swimming and golf.
CALORIES - Calories for the freestyle activity are based on heart rate. For other activities
calories are linked to that specific sport but for freestyle, the watch doesn’t know which sport
you are doing. Hence when no heart rate measurement is available, calories are not shown for
the freestyle activity.
For activity tracking, sports and activities, the calorie metric measures how many calories you
burn during the day including your basal metabolic rate (BMR). Your BMR represents the minimum amount of energy that you need to keep your body functioning, including breathing and
keeping your heart beating.
Icons on the screen
The following icons can be shown along the top of the screen while you are training:
This symbol shows the strength of GPS reception. While your watch is

2. Select WHEEL SIZE, then press RIGHT.
3. Set the size so it's correct for your rear wheel.
To find the circumference of your rear wheel, you can either measure the wheel yourself using a
tape measure, or look up the value in an online calculator. For example, on this site you can find
the circumference using the diameter of the wheel and the thickness of the tyre:
www.bikecalc.com/wheel_size_math
For example, if your wheel size is 700c and the tyres are 25 mm thick, the circumference is 2111
mm. This is the value you should enter.
Note: To get help on choosing which metrics you want to see during an activity, see Choosing
which metrics to display.
Settings for Swimming
Note: TomTom GPS watches are water-resistant. You can swim with these watches. However, the
built-in Heart Rate Monitor does not work under water.
Before you start a swimming activity, you should check the POOL SIZE setting for the pool where
you are swimming. This setting is the length of the pool in metres or yards.
46
As you swim, your watch registers your strokes and the number of turns you make in the pool. To
calculate the distance you have swum and your speed, your watch uses the pool size and the
number of turns you have made. If the pool size is not accurate, the metrics for your swimming

There are a wide range of metrics that you can choose to see while in the gym including calories,
heart rate, heart rate zone, and duration.
Choosing other metrics to display
Note: To get help on choosing which metrics you want to see during an activity, see Choosing
which metrics to display.
To choose to see just one metric for speed, average speed, pace or average pace, press DOWN to
the SETTINGS menu. Select METRICS, then press RIGHT. Select SPEED, AVG SPEED, PACE or AVG
PACE.
To choose to see speed, pace or both metrics, press DOWN to the SETTINGS menu. Select METRICS,
then press RIGHT. Select SPEED, then press RIGHT. Select SPEED, PACE or BOTH.
Settings for Cycle activities
You can log your heart rate and speed when cycling indoors.
If you want to review your performance while cycling, in the interest of your own safety it is best to
mount the GPS watch using the optional bike mount so that you can keep both hands on the handle
bars.
If you want to review your heart rate while cycling, we recommend connecting an optional external
heart rate monitor so that you can review your heart rate safely.
Setting the wheel size for use with a Cadence & Speed sensor
If you are using a Cadence and Speed Sensor, you should set the WHEEL SIZE setting to increase the
accuracy of the metrics provided by the sensor. This setting is the circumference of your rear tyre
in millimetres (mm).
To set your wheel size, do the following:
1. From the activity start screen, press DOWN to open the SETTINGS menu.
2. Select WHEEL SIZE, then press RIGHT.
3. Set the size so it's correct for your rear wheel.
48
To find the circumference of your rear wheel, you can either measure the wheel yourself using a
tape measure, or look up the value in an online calculator. For example, on this site you can find
the circumference using the diameter of the wheel and the thickness of the tyre:
www.bikecalc.com/wheel_size_math
For example, if your wheel size is 700c and the tyres are 25 mm thick, the circumference is 2111
mm. This is the value you should enter.
Note: To get help on choosing which metrics you want to see during an activity, see Choosing
which metrics to display.

Recovery
About heart rate recovery
Heart rate recovery is your heart's ability to return to a normal rate after an activity within a
specific amount of time. In general, a faster heart rate recovery from an activity is an indication of
an improved fitness level.
Heart rate recovery has two decreasing phases. During the first minute after exercise the heart rate
drops sharply. After the first minute, during the resting plateau, the heart rate gradually decreases.
Your TomTom GPS watch shows you the difference between the heart rate at the start and the end
of the minute as well as a 'score' for your recovery.
How do you measure heart rate recovery?
For activities that use a heart rate sensor, your watch shows you how your heart rate is recovering
when you pause an activity. After a period of one minute your watch gives a score for your heart
rate recovery. The faster your heart rate drops after exercise, the fitter you are.
Monitoring of heart rate recovery works with the built-in Heart Rate Sensor or an external Heart
Rate Sensor.
Race
How to get there: Activity screen > Press DOWN > TRAINING > RACE > RECENT or MYSPORTS.
Select this option to race against one of your ten most recent activities or race against an activity
from the MySports website. You can use race for running, treadmill, freestyle and cycling activities.
Tip: To add more races to the website, click RACE THIS on the activity details page for a
particular activity on the MySports website.
56
Note: If your watch is already connected to the website and you make changes to your races, the
changes won’t get synchronised automatically - you need to disconnect and reconnect your
watch.
The activity or race from the MySports website consists of a distance and a time.
When you use the Race training program, you can see if you are ahead or behind in the race and by
how much, as you train.
On your watch, press RIGHT from the activity screen to see a representation of the race. The
graphics screen shows whether you, as shown by the black arrow, are pacing ahead or behind your
previous activity, as shown by the shaded arrow.
The distance at the top of the screen shows the remaining distance in the race, and the distance at
the bottom shows how much you are ahead or behind.
Your watch alerts you so you know if you are in front (#1) or behind (#2) in your race. In this
example you are 23 metres behind your previous activity and you have a remaining distance to race
of 2.3 kilometres.
Tip: To get information on adding previous activities to your watch, go to tomtom.com/support

Adding sensors
About sensors
Sensors are external devices which you can link to your watch to provide information about your
activity. Two types of sensors can be used with your watch:


External Heart Rate Sensor - this measures your heart rate as you train. The external TomTom
Heart Rate Sensor is included in some products and available as an accessory for others.
Cadence & Speed Sensor - this measures your cadence and speed as you cycle. The TomTom
Cadence & Speed Sensor is included in some products and available as an accessory for others.
Cadence
Cadence measures the rate at which you pedal in revolutions per minute (rpm). In a low gear, you
may have a very high cadence but a lower speed. In a high gear, you may have a low cadence but a
higher speed. Cyclists train to find the balance between cadence and speed which allows them to
cycle as efficiently as possible.
External Heart Rate Sensor
To use the external TomTom Heart Rate Sensor with your watch, do the following:
1. Attach the monitor to the strap.
2. Attach the strap around your chest, so the monitor sits just above the base of your chest bone.
Make sure the monitor is the right way up so that the word TomTom is the right way up for
someone standing in front of you.
Tip: Wet the sensors on the inside of the strap before placing it around your chest. This makes
it easier for the sensor to pick up your heartbeat.
3. From the Clock screen on your watch, press DOWN.
4. Select SENSORS then press RIGHT.
64
5. Select HEART, then press RIGHT to turn it on.
6. When you begin an activity, your watch connects to the sensor and you see a heart icon at the
bottom of the screen.
When your watch is trying to connect to the sensor, the heart flashes.
The first time your watch tries to connect to your sensor, if it finds more than one sensor, your
watch doesn't know which sensor to connect to. Move to a place where there are no other
sensors within range of your watch.
When you have connected to your sensor once, your watch always reconnects to your sensor.
While you train, you can choose to show your heart rate.
You can also use a training program to train to a target heart rate zone.
You can also use the external Heart Rate Sensor with other Bluetooth® Smart Ready devices and
apps. See the documentation that comes with your product or app for more information.
To change the CR2032 battery on the sensor, use a coin to open the back of the sensor. The battery
must be recycled or disposed of according to local laws and regulations.
Cadence and Speed Sensor
The TomTom Cadence & Speed Sensor consists of the following parts:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Spoke magnet
Crankarm magnet
Chainstay sensor
Cable ties
To use the TomTom Cadence & Speed Sensor with your watch, do the following:
1. Attach the chainstay sensor to the chainstay on your bike, using three of the cable ties
provided. Use two ties for the main body of the sensor and one tie for the smaller part of the
sensor. You may need to adjust the position of the sensors so don't tighten the ties completely
just yet.
65
Important: The smaller part of the sensor needs to face the crankarms and should not be
attached to the top of the chainstay. You may have to tilt the main body of the sensor towards
the wheel depending on your bike. You should make this adjustment after you have attached
the spoke magnet.
2. Attach the spoke magnet to one of the spokes on your bike. The magnet should face the
chainstay where you attached the chainstay sensor.
3. Adjust the position of the spoke magnet and the chainstay sensor so that when the wheel turns,
the spoke magnet passes the tip of the main body of the chainstay sensor.
Important: The distance between the chainstay sensor and the spoke magnet should not be
more than 2 mm when they pass each other. On some bikes, you may have to tilt the main
body of the sensor towards the wheel.
66
4. Attach the crankarm magnet to one of the crankarms on your bike. The magnet should face the
chainstay where you attached the chainstay sensor.
Tip: Make sure the different parts of the Cadence & Speed Sensor are lined up correctly on
your bike. The spoke magnet should pass the main body of the chainstay sensor and the
crankarm magnet should pass the tip of the sensor.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
Once you have adjusted the sensors to the right position, tighten the cable ties so they are held
securely in place.
On your watch, set the wheel size to help increase the accuracy of the metrics provided by the
sensor. The wheel size is the circumference of your tyre in millimetres (mm).
Move your bike or its crankarm so that at least one of the magnets passes the sensor. This
switches on the sensor.
From the Clock screen, press DOWN.
Select SENSORS, then press RIGHT.
Select BIKE, then press RIGHT to turn it on.
When you begin a workout, your watch connects to the sensor and you see an icon of a chainring
at the bottom of the screen.
When your watch is trying to connect to the Cadence & Speed Sensor, the chainring flashes.
The first time your watch tries to connect to your sensor, if it finds more than one sensor, your
watch doesn't know which sensor to connect to. Move to a place where there are no other
sensors within range of your watch.
67
When you have connected to your sensor once, your watch always reconnects to your sensor.
When the chainring icon has stopped flashing, your watch is ready to measure your speed and
cadence. You can start cycling with no GPS fix but for proper GPS tracking, wait until the GPS
icon has also stopped flashing before you start your cycling activity.
Tip: When you are using the Cadence & Speed Sensor for cycling activities, you are warned when
no speed data is being received from the sensor.
While you train, you can choose to show your current cadence or change the display to see your
cadence.
You can also use a training program to train to a target cadence zone.
You can also use the Cadence & Speed Sensor with other Bluetooth® Smart Ready devices and apps.
See the documentation that comes with your product or app for more information.
To change the CR2032 battery on the sensor, use a coin to open the back of the sensor. The battery
must be recycled or disposed of properly according to local laws and regulations.
