TomTom has launched the first fitness tracker in Singapore that combines body composition analysis with steps, sleep and all day heart-rate tracking, from the wrist.

Body composition gives wearers a good understanding of their fitness level and how it is changing over time*. Until now, this metric had only been available with dedicated scales or expensive technology. TomTom Touch now makes this measurement more accessible.

“We’re excited to give people fitness information they can really use with TomTom Touch,” 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 the tracking of steps, sleep, all-day heartrate, calories burned, as well as a sports mode for running, cycling or hitting the gym. It connects with the smartphone for notifications.

The TomTom MySports companion mobile app lets wearers view their stats, progress and share achievements with friends. Performance statistics and graphs help to show the effect activities have on body composition over time.

Activity measurements: Steps, active minutes, distance, calories burnt, sleep and heart rate 24x7 Battery life of up to five days
Waterproofing: IPX7 (splashproof, showerproof)
Display: OLED, 5.58 x 22.38 mm

Weight 10g

The TomTom Touch comes out of the box with a micro-USB charging cable and a Get Started leaflet. It is available in a range of strap colours and is available in the first week of November from selected retailers at a recommended retail price of S$239.
