Technology: The TomTom Runner Cardio Watch

Fitness. I don’t know about you, but every time I hear the word fitness, this song comes to mind (and the lyrics…I be up in the gym just working on my fitness). These days, I get my fitness routine in through my walks to/from work, to/from the grocery store, to/from Uptown Waterloo…well, you get the idea…I walk quite a bit here in Waterloo!

I have run quite a bit in the past, but in recent years, I’ve gotten out of the running circuit (for no particular reason besides the usual excuse of lack of time).

And I’ve never been a fan of the gym.

Now that I’m in Florida for a couple of weeks, I’m finding it really easy to work on my fitness. The beach just calls my name, and going for walks along the shore is really a major highlight of my time here (and year, actually). The beach goes on forever, and as long as my legs will take me places, I’ll keep on walking!

This summer, TomTom kindly sent over its RunnerCardio watch for me to test out, and the timing could not have been more perfect.

Here it is in white:

It’s a sleek little thing that is very comfortable to wear, and it tracks my distance, progress, calories burned, pace, and heart beat rate. Yes, even heart beat! I love that feature.

I’m still learning about all its features. It seems like every day I learn something new about this little sleek watch. If you have any advice, please let me know!

      Cool! I’m a fan. Let me know if you end up getting one.
      p.s. Florida is awesome…minus a bit of rain we’re having!
