Andrew Cooper, SVP Sales APAC, TomTom, said, “Our research shows that 95% of runners consider their GPS watch to be their perfect training partner. However, we see a gap between the number of runners and the penetration of GPS sport watches primarily due to lack of understanding on the benefits of running with a GPS watch. By launching fitness products with industry leading innovations, we expect this segment to grow at a rapid pace globally, and in India.”
