Our take on the TomTom Touch Cardio by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Track for health
I love how technology helps me stay accountable in reaching my fitness goals. And if you're just starting down the path to a better you, slipping on TomTom's Touch Cardio activity tracker is a great way to start. It not only counts steps, but it also records calories burned, distance walked, your sleep time, and other important metrics to give you a clearer picture of your progress.
Wrist-based heart rate
Tracking your heart rate during exercise lets you work out at the intensity level that offers the most benefit, while keeping track of your resting heart rate provides a gauge to how your fitness is improving. Touch Cardio measures your heart rate at the wrist. No chest straps or counting beats. You'll always know where you stand.
Touch Cardio pairs with your smartphone via Bluetooth® to automatically transfer data to TomTom Sports app so you can easily track your progress, and share the info with other fitness platforms. And the notifications feature will alert you when you receive a text or phone call, too.

Overview: The TomTom Touch Fitness Tracker can help you reach your fitness goals, and give you real-time data on your progress. The Touch can measure your heart rate, count your steps, show how many calories you've burned, and measure other aspects of your workout. It can also analyze your sleep. The Touch has an IPX7 splash-proof rating, so you can wear it while you work out, even in the shower. The built-in rechargeable battery gives you enough power for five days of activity tracking. This version of the Touch is designed for small wrists, with a circumference of 4.9" to 6.5" (125-165mm). A large version of the Touch is available for wrists from 5.5" to 8.1".
Touchscreen Display: The Touch has a bright touchscreen display that is easy to read. You can swipe up to open screens for Steps, Calories Burned, Distance, Active Time, and Sleep duration. Swiping down opens the Sports Mode and Heart Rate functions.
Heart Rate Sensor: The heart rate sensor is located on the back of the watch, so when you wear the device, the sensor touches your skin. The sensor shines light through the skin and onto the capillaries, and detects the changes in light reflection to measure your heart rate.
Steps: If you set a goal to take a specified number of steps per day or week, the Touch can help you keep track of them. Using the motion of your wrists, the device counts your steps as you walk or run. You can set a goal for total number of steps in the TomTom Sports app. The number of steps resets at midnight each day.
Sports Mode: While you work out, the Sports Mode can measure time, heart rate, or calories burned (based on your heart rate). You can upload your results to the TomTom Sports mobile app, or the TomTom Sports Connect app for your home computer, to keep track of all your activities over time. The Touch cannot be used for swimming or water sports.
Sleep Tracking: You can use the Touch to track how much sleep you're getting. The device measures sleep based on motion, assuming that if you're not moving, you are asleep. The daily sleep tracking resets at 4:00pm each day, and starts counting a new night at that point. The device will calculate the amount of sleep you get per day, week, month, or year.
