Fitness Age
TomTom Fitness Age is an indication of how well your body functions physically, relative to how well it
should work, based on things like your heart rate during activities, maximum and resting heart rates,
activity, gender, age, height and weight.
The more effective activity you do, the better your Fitness Age becomes. Start working on your Fitness
Age by earning Fitness Points. You earn Fitness Points when you record your activity on a TomTom
Sports watch with heart rate monitoring.
To learn more, go to Fitness Age in this manual.

To workout more effectively, you can now select one of 50 personalised workouts that are downloaded
automatically to the watch after connecting it to TomTom Sports website or app. There are workouts
for both running and cycling activity types and they come in 5 categories: Fitness, Fat Burn,
Endurance, Speed and Power.
To learn more, go to Workouts.

your headphones. You can also skip within a music track in 10 second increments by long pressing
left and right on your watch.

Important: Your watch sleeps if it isn't used for a while. Press any button once to wake up your watch.
Your watch will then start syncing with the Sports 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.
7

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 at tomtom.com/sportsaccessories.
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 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.
8
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. To switch it, see About 24/7 heart rate monitoring.
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.
You can use the desk dock when your watch is in the wrist strap or you can remove your watch from
the wrist strap first.
Removing the watch from the strap
For more information, see Removing your watch from the strap.
Charging using the desk dock
To place your watch in the desk dock, do the following:
1. Slide the watch into the dock, following the curve of the back of the watch.
2. Push the watch in again until you hear a click and get a full connection.
9
Important: When you place your watch in the dock, you may get one of two types of connection:
Charging using a wall socket or USB socket with no data capabilities.
Full connection including access to Sports.
3. To remove your watch from the desk dock, pull the watch away from the dock, following the curve
of the back of the watch.
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.
Important: These instructions show you how to attach the holder to the handlebars and THEN insert
the watch.
To use the bike mount, do the following:
10
1. Slide the handlebar strap into the hook at the back of the watch holder. Choose the right length for
the size of your handlebars.
Tip: The strap has two holes so that it fits a range of different sizes of handlebars from 22 mm to
32 mm. Select the hole that fits your handlebars best.
11
2. Place the watch holder on your handlebar and wrap the strap around the bar.
3. Use the clip on the bottom of the holder to attach the handlebar strap.
The strap should now be attached securely around the handlebar.
12
4. Remove your watch from the wrist strap. Open the holder by pressing as shown below. Lift the
cover.
5. Slide your watch into the holder as shown.
6. Make sure your watch clicks securely into place.

handlebars.
To use an O-ring, do the following:
1. Turn the watch over and insert the O-ring in the hook nearest the front of the watch.
2. Find a piece of rubber, for example, a piece of an old bicycle inner tube. This is needed to sit
between the mount and handle bars and prevents slipping.
3. Place the mount onto the handle bars so that the piece of rubber is sandwiched between the
mount and the bars.
4. Wrap the O-ring around the handle bars and lift it over the back hooks.

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, trail running, hiking, treadmill or indoor cycling
For running, cycling, swimming, trail running, hiking, treadmill or indoor cycling, 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, gym, ski and snowboard
Calories for freestyle, gym, ski and snowboard activities are based on heart rate. For other activities
calories are linked to that specific sport but for freestyle, gym, ski and snowboard the watch doesn’t
know which sport you are doing. Hence when no heart rate measurement is available, calories are not
shown for these four 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:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
From the Clock screen, press down to open the SETTINGS menu.
Select TRACKER.
Select HEART.
Select ON.
Synchronise your watch by connecting it to Sports Connect on your computer or to the Sports
mobile app.
Your watch is now measuring your heart rate when you wear it.

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.
28
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.

5. Select ON or OFF.
There are some important things you need to know about auto pause:





This setting is set PER ACTIVITY and can be set on your watch or using the Sports website.
When auto-paused, your watch keeps on recording and just pauses the display of metrics and
your averages.
Settings for auto pause are not synced between your watch and the Sports website.
If auto pause is set to OFF on the Sports website and ON on the watch, the watch takes control
and auto pause is shown as ON in the activity and the metrics.
Auto pause can't be used with workouts or training apart from goals, laps and zones.
Note: If you switch on auto pause on the Sports website, your activity history is also changed and
some averages, personal bests and trends may go up.
Manually pausing an activity
During an activity, press and hold left to stop the clock and pause your activity.
To restart the activity again, press right.
How manual pause works
If you upload your activity to your Sports 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.
Stopping an activity
To stop the activity completely, press left to pause the activity, then press left again.
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.
Setting the minor metrics
Do the following to choose the information shown by the smaller figures:
1. From the activity start screen, press down to the SETTINGS menu.
2. Select METRICS, then press right.
30
3. Select DISPLAY, then press right.
4. Select left or right to set the metric shown on the left or the right.
5. Select the metric to be displayed from the list.
The metrics that are available depend on your current activity.
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
looking for GPS satellites, the satellite images flashes.
The heart symbol shows that your watch is connected to a Heart Rate
Sensor. When your watch is trying to connect to the Heart Rate Sensor, the
heart flashes.
The chainring symbol shows that your watch is connected to a Cadence and
Speed Sensor. When your watch is trying to connect to the Cadence&
Speed Sensor, the chainring flashes.
This symbol shows the battery status.

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 sensor 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.
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.
32
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 activity cannot
be worked out correctly.

the graphical training screen. Press down to see the heart rate zone screens as described above.
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.

Fitness Age
All about TomTom Fitness Age
TomTom Fitness Age is all about getting you active, inspiring you to get fitter, and improving your
fitness level. You'll learn how effective your activities are, and you'll see personal recommendations to
help you choose the best activity for you.
Finding out how fit you are requires some complex calculations! TomTom Fitness Age is an indication
of how well your body functions physically, relative to how well it should work, based on things like
your heart rate, activity, gender, age and weight.
Your VO2max rate is used to calculate your Fitness Age, and this is the standard method used to
determine a person's physical fitness. VO2max is the maximum rate of oxygen that your body can use
during exercise per second, per body weight unit. Becoming fitter means your body can use more
oxygen, so your VO2max increases as your fitness level increases.
TomTom Fitness Age will help you get going to improve your Fitness Age, and help you learn more
about your fitness activities:





How fit am I really?
Have I done enough during this activity or should I do more?
Did I do enough this week or do I need more exercise?
Is this an effective activity or is another activity better for me?
What should I do next?
Important: This product feature uses advanced heart rate analytics provided by Firstbeat. The
information provided by TomTom Fitness Age is an estimation of your fitness level and does not
constitute medical advice, nor is it meant to cure, treat or prevent a disease. We advise you to consult
your doctor before starting a new exercise program.
To learn more about Fitness Age and Fitness Points, see the TomTom Fitness Age User Manual.
Viewing Fitness Points on your watch
You can see your overall daily Fitness Points on your TomTom Sports watch.
Note: You can only earn Fitness Points when your watch can measure your heart rate. When your
watch is not on your wrist, for example when it's worn over your ski jacket or when you're using the
bicycle mount, your heart rate is not measured unless you are wearing a heart rate monitor and
chest strap. Heart rate is not measured in the Swim activity.
Press left from the Clock to go to the Activity Tracking screen. Press down to find the Fitness Points
screen. You'll see your daily Fitness Points total together with the fitness level you have currently
reached, and the amount of stars you've earned in the last 7 days.
Tip: Set Fitness as a goal in the Tracker menu to show your Fitness Points first in the Activity
Tracking screen.
45
For example, the watch below shows you that all your activities today have earned you more than 500
points, so you're improving your fitness. The 3 stars show you that you've earned more than 500
points 3 times in the last 7 days.
You can also see your total Fitness Points while you are in an activity, so you can see if you’ve
reached your goal or whether you should do more. You'll get alerts when you've reached Active,
Improving or Overdrive.
Tip: After seeing an overdrive alert, it will become increasingly hard to earn more Fitness Points
that day. This is because your body needs time to recover before you do more exercise.
To learn more about Fitness Age and Fitness Points, see the TomTom Fitness Age User Manual.

Workouts
About workouts
To workout more effectively select one of 50 personalised workouts that are downloaded automatically
to the watch after connecting it to TomTom Sports website or App.
Note: Workouts can be used with any running, cycling or freestyle activity.
There are 5 categories of workouts available:





Fitness - These workouts will improve all aspects of your physical ability, helping you become a
fitter you and proving that your age is really only a number.
Fat burn - These workouts get you to just the right level of effort to burn those few extra grams,
and then keep you there.
Endurance - These workouts start stretching your boundaries so you can keep going for longer at
higher levels of intensity.
Speed - These workouts might push you to the edge of what you thought was possible, but in
doing so will give you an increase in speed, and get you ready for that fast race.
Power - These workouts will truly challenge your physical and mental capabilities with hard-core
sprint training designed to build your explosive power.
Within each category, there are 5 workouts to choose from with varying degrees of difficulty, hence 25
workouts available for both running and cycling.
Each workout is adapted to your VO2 max and is made up of several steps including warm-up, work,
rest, and cooldown.
Tip: VO2max is calculated when you do an activity that involves heart rate measurement. VO 2 max
is the maximum amount of oxygen your body can utilise during exercise, per second, per unit of
body weight. It is the standard method used to determine physical fitness and is an indication of
your overall aerobic fitness level. Studies show that individuals with a high VO 2max tend to live
longer and have a much lower risk of cardiovascular and other diseases.

IN ZONE
OUT OF ZONE
Tip: When doing a workout, try to stay within the optimal training range for any given step. Heart
rate zones have specific top and bottom values whereas speed, pace, cadence etc have a single
specific target value that you want to stay near. When in a recovery or rest step, try to lower your
heart rate to a lower training zone by getting below the top heart rate value for that zone.
9. When you reach the end of your workout you see stats for how you did.

About the voice coach
When playing music, a voice coach guides you through the important stages of your training.
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.

Headphones troubleshooting
Some TomTom GPS watches are supplied with their own headphones for listening to music.
If you experience gaps or clicks in the music, this may be due to your body blocking the Bluetooth
signal between your watch and the headset controls.
Try wearing the watch on the other wrist to improve the reception and audio quality. The best position
for the watch is on the right wrist.

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.
69
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.
70
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.
71
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.
72
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.
