TomTom Touch offers body composition analysis from the wrist

TomTom has launched the first fitness tracker on the market that combines body composition analysis with steps, sleep and all-day heart rate tracking. With the push of a button, TomTom Touch can finally answer the question "Is what I’m doing, doing anything for me?"*

Body composition - the percentage of body fat and muscle mass in the body - gives a good understanding of fitness level and how it is changing over time**. This metric used to be available only with dedicated scales or expensive technology. The launch of TomTom Touch now makes it more accessible.

Said Chris Kearney, VP APAC, TomTom Consumer: “We all know that weight doesn’t tell the whole story. Two people with the same weight can have completely different levels of muscle and fat in their body. TomTom Touch gives more clarity by tracking body composition, so you can really tell whether your efforts are having any effect.”

TomTom Touch is designed to be worn 24x7 and includes functions such as tracking steps, sleep, all-day heart rate, calories burned, and sports modes for running, cycling or using the gym. It can be linked with the smartphone for notifications.

With the complementary TomTom MySports mobile app, wearers can analyse their statistics, view progress and share achievements with friends. Performance statistics and graphs make sense of the effect activities may have on body composition over time.

Additional features available in the TomTom Touch Fitness Tracker include:

- Water-resistant 
- Up to five days battery life 
- Goal setting 
- Automatic sleep tracking 
- Wireless syncing 
- Universal micro-USB charging cable 


TomTom Touch is available from selected retailers in Singapore from October. Its customisable strap is available in a range of colours.

*Results may vary significantly and could be affected by multiple factors. Try to take the measurements at the same time of day under same conditions.
