Giveaway Extravaganza: TomTom Cardio Multisport (with optical HR)


Fricken lasers beams!  While I originally asked TomTom for sharks with laser beams on their heads, they balked.  They said they didn’t do sharks and asked why I wanted a shark anyway.  I called them wimps, and we went our separate ways.

But then months later they came back – not with a shark, but with a watch with a laser beam on the back of it.  They pitched that this green laser beam (well, of sorts) that would instead bite deep into your skin and measure your heart rate without any uncomfortable heart rate strap.  I noted that a shark could also bite into the skin and measure heart rate just as easily.  Strangely, they said triathletes wouldn’t find that funny.  Go figure.
