Tom Tom have the Touch


TomTom have announced their first fitness tracker; however this is more than just another  fitness band. Alongside step tracking and sleep analysis, the TomTom Touch builds body composition analysis and 24/7 heart rate monitoring into the mix.

The main event here is the body composition feature. Body composition gives you a good understanding of your fitness level and how it’s changing over time. Until now, this metric has been available with dedicated scales or expensive technology – now the Touch will allow you to ascertain your body’s ratio of muscle vs fat. It uses two sensors placed on the front and the back; simply place your fingers on them and a tiny, undetectable current will fly around your body and back into the rear sensor.

Available in large and small and with a host of different coloured bands to slip the module into, the Touch is priced at £129.99 and goes on sale in October.
