TomTom Runner Cardio sports watch has GPS and built-in heart rate counter

Typically, when you buy sports watch that can monitor your heart rate, you have to wear a chest strap with it. TomTom has announced a new GPS sports watch called the Runner Cardio that is able to monitor your heart rate without a strap.

The watch uses a Mio sensor that uses light to monitor changes in blood flow and get your heart rate. The watch lets the user set heart rate zones with different areas for different workouts. The watch has a big display that is easy to read.

Controls for functions require only one button and the watch is slim and comfortable to wear. The TomTom Runner Cardio watch is available for 269 euros. A version of the watch designed for use in multiple sports is 299 euros.

Other features include a long battery life and QuickGPSFix technology. The watch data can be downloaded into different apps and websites. TomTom made the watch weather and water resistant as well able to survive depths of 165 feet. The step counter will work outdoors and indoors on a treadmill.

“Once again, TomTom is making innovative technology accessible to everyone,” says Corinne Vigreux, managing director, TomTom Consumer. “We know that heart rate monitoring is the single most accurate way to understand how the body is responding to exercise. Now, with the launch of the Runner Cardio, all runners can easily use heart rate training to improve their performance.”

High-occupancy lanes don’t really solve anything

Source: Driving Canada

I’m driving a car with “green” plates this week, a Ford C-Max Energi. It’s one of the few cars with enough headroom for my 6’4” son, and while the battery takes up most of the trunk space (a fact I remembered as I stuffed 200 bucks worth of groceries onto the back seat yesterday), it also allows me to use the High Occupancy Vehicle lanes with only one – me. And that’s where the guilt begins. I know full well as I zip along I’m using just as much fuel as many of the p ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
