    So I was talking to someone who used to have a TomTom and now has a Garmin.  She rates the Garmin as being much better (not the Vivoactive but one of the Forerunner ones).

    I'm after one I can swim with so unfortunately the forerunner won't help , but I do like the look of it
  • I have a TomTom watch for running. It's basic but does what I need it to but the biggest issue is that it can take *ages* to pick up a GPS signal at times, sometimes at home, other times when in a new location. Indeed, it's so bad that there are times when one has to wave one's wrist in the sky to try and get closer to the satellites and get a lock. I know a number of other people who report the same issue so it is not unique to me.
