I recently went to Suicide Gorge with a friend. This hike involves jumping down from 8m cliffs into water. My friend lost his TomTom sport's watch in the process.

He made contact with the marketing manager of TomTom in South Africa, Jools Massey-Hicks. She told him that TomTom watches are not to be used when participating in extreme sports.

Never in my wildest imagination would I have imagined kloofing is an extreme sport. My question is what other sport is considered too extreme? I certainly don't want to loose my TomTom watch!

    I do not think it is the TT watch itself, it is any sport where you are likely to get a watch ripped off. I would not wear a watch in in OCR, cliff diving, or white water rafting either. What is extreme to one is not to another and I am sure the marketing manager was giving you a standard response. I think it just takes some common sense to consider the risk and rewards. Since the watch isn't really measuring anything while kloofing, I am not sure why you would even wear it. The impact pressure from hitting the water could easily damage any watch.
