TomTom Adventurer fitting into other straps?


I'm not a big orange fan and I bought the Adventurer when it was first released and couldn't wait for the black version to come out and now the orange has kinda grown on me but I still want to buy a different color you see orange does exactly match well. My question is can you buy a spark model strap and have it fit the Adventurer?

All the straps sine the Spark/Runner2 are interchangeable so you can use any of the straps. The Adventurer straps are a slightly different design but all the straps will fit.

I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.

Thank you for your help. The Adventurer model is not listed under the compatible products for any of the straps. So that is where I'm confused.
I can't speak to if the Adventurer will fit into a Spark/Runner 2 or Spark3 strap, but I can say that the Adventurer strap is different than the Spark band. The Adventurer has two hinges at the base of the device housing and also at the clasp. The spark strap is monolithic/integral to the housing and I believe at the clasp too. I replaced my spark with the Adventurer because of this newer design with the hinge as my spark strap keep breaking at those missing hinge points. The strap for the spark I had was/is a poor design and defective in my opinion. Not sure if they have "updated" the design of the spark/spark3 straps to the hinge strap of the adventurer in the last few months, but my guess is they haven't...
you can checking on the Tomtom online store , they are listed compatible model for the straps. For my finding is Runner2 / Spark model strap not compatible to Adventurer

Hello, I have also an orange one and I have to say that after 2 months is not so clean anymore. I'm waiting for a black strap for my Adventurer.
From the posts above I understand that these Spark/Runner 2 straps don't fit, correct? I really want for a black one. Do you know when it will be available?

All units in the Spark/Runner lineup (Spark, Spark 3, Runner2, Runner3 and Adventurer) are identical and all the straps are interchangeable. The only straps that will not fit are the ones for the original Runner1 and MultiSport.
