A handy one-button control mechanism allows users to easily swap between three training modes and access menus.

All four watches can also sync with existing fitness plaforms like MapMyFitness, RunKeeper, Strava and TrainingPeaks among others.

This marks TomTom's entry into the Indian wearable market, which has so far seen homegrown brands like GOQii and international brands like Garmin making fitness bands. San Francisco-based Fitbit is also expected to enter India this year.
