Looks like exactly what I want. I took my spark hiking in the summer holidays and barely managed even with full battery. This should do the trick, although I won't be able to afford one anytime soon.

Now that you have a device with a hiking profile, will I soon be able to switch my previous freestyle activities (which I use when hiking) to hiking activities on the mysports site? Would love for them to accurately represent their activity.

I believe when you edit your activities you can click the little activity icon on the left and select a new activity and the new modes are among them. If not, I would assume they would be when the watches are released. I can't see why they would sequester old activities from changing types, it would be more work to prevent it than allow it.
hello, I am currently looking for a device which records my flights being made with my paramotor activities. One of the sportswatches being considerd by me is the SUUNTO AMBIT3 PEAK.
I, however just found the new TomTom Adventure model which seems to incorporate some basic possibilities like speed etc.

Things I can't find are:
1. Logbook possibility
2. Automatic lift detection, what would this mean considering take-off and landing. Will it stop recording?
3. Vertical speed
4. Flight profile
5. Breadcrumbs (return to home)
6. Possibility to share flights using googlemaps (for example)
7. Flight duration
8. Connection possibilities to my TomTom bandit action cam.

Hopefully someone can ellaborate on some (or all...) of above mentioned questions.

Thnx. in advance.

Very important question for the TT team:
Does the other sports in TT Adventurer include those new metrics such as: altitude, ascent, ... ? Other there will be a new MTB mode? Cycling without those new metrics will be really disappointing 😞

None of these features are available on the watch and quite honestly, I would not expect them to be. Flying is a completely separate market than they are going for here and there is simply not going to be enough overlap in the user base for them to program this much activity specific detail. You are better off looking for a device designed specifically for flying. You're not going to get this in a lower-end budget model like the Spark.

All sports modes have a number of the metrics (but they are not across all). As far as I have seen, it is laid out as follows:

Run: gradient, cumulative climb
Trail: altitude, delta, gradient, cumulative climb
Hike: altitude, delta, gradient, cumulative climb
Swim, gym: same as before
Cycling: gradient, cumulative climb
Freestyle: cumulative climb
Skiing/snowboard: altitude, delta altitude, cumulative descent, + extra summary cards per (automatically detected) run : max speed, max gradient, and descent of last run
hi tfarabaugh, I was not considering the spark but looking for the adventure model. This one has a barometric pressure sensor so should be able to display and record altitude.
I have the Bandit action camera : will the Adventurer watch link up with the Bandit ? e.g. as remote control, or - even more interesting in future - act as 'remote view' , i.e. you see on your wrist what the camera sees from your ski helmet ?

No it will not (or at least they have given no indication it will and they would have mentioned it).
What will be the release date of the adventurer in the Netherlands?

Hi

When compared to the tomtom cardio spark +music, apart from the additional outdoor "adventure" activities, are there any other changes?

Thanks

The only changes are the added navigation features (compass and ability to follow pre-loaded tracks) and added sports modes (hiking, trail running, skiing).

Hi all,

I added to the announcement a link to some how-to videos for the TomTom Adventurer.

Cheers, Mikko
Hi, Is the Adventurer bigger in size than the Runner 3, or the same size? Thanks

Exactly the same size.
Hi guys,

When will the watch be available for purchase? I understood October, but maybe a more precise date would help.
Thanks in advance!

An exact date has not been announced. Your best bet is to keep an eye on tomtom.com or call Customer Support and see if they have more information,. This is a user forum so we do not have any details here.
I have the TomTom adventurer. How can I check my heart rate, at a random time during the day, when I am not using the "activities" tracking system? The heart rate sensor is on, I just can not find where I can check my heart rate outside of activities. Thank you.
Hi AvaJanssens,

In the sensors section you should see options for External Heart and Wrist Heart Sensors. If you have the watch on your wrist (or wear the belt) you should be able to see the current heart rate, without being in an activity.
Hope this helps.
I checked it again, I wasn't patient enough. Indeed, after a few seconds heart rate shows up underneath the on/off/external section. Many thanks!
