Discussion: Importing data from the TomTom Runner GPS watch

Does anybody know a quick and simple way to import data from the TomTom Runner watch?
So far I was only able to export files to different folders for each day... which is quite a mess to import to AP when you want to be efficient.
Thanks for your help!

This may not be the correct answer to your question, but here is how I export my TomTom data to SportTracks:

1) Create an Endomondo acoount. Chose "automatic upload to Endomondo" in the TomTom software.

2) Create an account in and chose "sync Endomondo to SportTracks".

Works fine for me. Just plug in your TomTom watch, and a few minutes later your data will be in SportTracks.
BTW, Tapiriik can sync also between Garmin Connect, RunKeeper, Strava, TrainingPeaks, SportTracksi, Endomondo, RideWithGPS, and Dropbox - but currently not with AP. Maybe someone knows an efficient way to sync one of these platforms with AP?

The approach I'm looking into is:
1. Set up the TomTom Connect app to save a FITS file.
2. Enable email upload in user settings:
3. Set up a script (bash and/or applescript) to watch the folder where those files are saved which...
4. Triggers an email action to send the file to address in #2.

There are applescripts out there which will watch a folder and email files that are added to that folder. However it doesn't work for sub-folders, and the way TomTom works is that it dumps several files into a sub-folder named by date and activity type, including the exported *.fits file.

Should not be insurmountable...

Thank WR for the tip on and PatDunlavey for the suggestion on a watched folder. I now have data flowing from my Garmin 305 to Garmin Connect via ANT+ & Garmin Express to Dropbox via tapiriik to AP via AppleScript watched folder & email upload without me having to do anything. Now if I could only remember to stop my watch at the end of each run I'd be all set.
