Aimed squarely at Garmin's Forerunner GPS watch, the SportWatch GPS benefits from integration with Nike's established Nike+ software package and community.

Sporty color scheme
The SportWatch GPS is TomTom's first "outdoor" product. The watch features an interesting black on green design and a waterproof casing that can be worn in the rain or in the shower.

Memory LCD display
The unit uses a memory LCD display that can be tapped to activate a backlight. When running, users can also tap the watch to mark laps without having to aim for small buttons.

The unit features a simple three-button control scheme, two buttons for scrolling up and down and a single green button for selection. Nike and TomTom claim that they wanted to keep the interface simple. Based on our inspection, we think they were fairly successful.
