The company also revealed its first TomTom GO satnav with built-in Wi-Fi® to get rid of the need to connect to a PC for map and software updates, as well as Siri and Google Now™ integration, so you can keep your eyes on the road and not on your phone. TomTom also announced the TomTom CURFER, a performance tracker for your car. TomTom Sports additionally launched three GPS watch ranges, TomTom ADVENTURER, TomTom SPARK 3, and TomTom RUNNER 3 – which build on TomTom’s heritage in navigation and mapping to bring route exploration to your wrist.

Speaking at the launch, Corinne Vigreux, co-founder and managing director, TomTom Consumer, said: “In 2004, we changed people’s lives by creating the satnav for cars, and in doing so, created a brand new category. Today, we’re doing it again with the launch of TomTom VIO – the first smartphone-connected navigation for scooters, and TomTom TOUCH – our first fitness tracker with built-in body composition analysis. We continue to build on our heritage as an innovator, creating technology that keeps you moving and keeps you safer, helping everybody in their busy lives.”
