The folk at Tom Tom reckon monitoring your heart rate is the most accurate way to understand how your body is responding to exercise so they’ve developed their Runner Cardio with that in mind. The big screen allows you to see real-time running at a glance so you can easily track how far and fast you’ve run as well as how many calories you’ve burned. The Tom Tom Runner Cardio also allows you to train against your past performances. Because the only person you should compare yourself to is yourself!
Sometimes you need that little extra boost to get you moving and the Garmin Viviofit Fitness band does just that!
