TomTom Touch review: Too basic for its own good

Last updated:  

The TomTom Touch is best suited to those who want a tracker that will ostensibly track your body composition alongside the regular trio of steps, sleep and heart rate.

The good

  • Tracks body composition
  • Good battery life
  • Simple interface
  • Covers the basics

The bad

  • It’s very basic
  • Body composition counting is buggy
  • The band can be hard to fit
  • App and web interface are bland

While Fitbit has all but defined the category, especially with Jawbone effectively leaving the market, TomTom has a wide range of fitness-centric devices, covering everything from sports watches to more classic fitness bands. The TomTom Touch most definitely fits into the latter category, delivering a range of fitness stats to help you along your health journey.

Verdict

The TomTom Touch is best suited to those who want a tracker that will ostensibly track your body composition alongside the regular trio of steps, sleep and heart rate. It’s another metric that you could use to inspire you to increase your fitness, albeit one that I had trouble getting to work all the time. Equally, if you're already in the TomTom sports watch space and thus have transferable stats but no longer want to wear a full watch, it could be a serviceable option.

The Fitbit is the obvious competitor in this space and at the price point of the TomTom Touch you could opt for bands such as the Flex 2 or the Alta. There are countless other options in the sub-$200 space, especially if all you want is simple step and sleep tracking.
