When thinking about getting a new piece of running/cycling gear, what are your first thoughts?
Do I REALLY need this?
How much does it cost? How often will I use it?
How does it work? How long will it last? What is the battery life?
How is this going to improve my training or fitness?
All of the above?? Me too…
While I have used a particular running watch for quite some time now, I am always willing to try something new. As a BibRave Pro, we get numerous opportunities to test gear, gadgets, products, nutrition, and much more. This time around, we were given the opportunity to test out the COROS™ PACE Multisport Watch.
I do not yet have this piece of tech in my hands – but I thought it would be fun to go over my thought process as I start to check out this new product!
For starters, I haven’t heard of the company before now. After doing a little research, I found that Coros is a sports technology company and their products (other than this watch) are Smart Cycling Helmets. These helmets are impressive and are very tech savvy!
The COROS™ PACE is the first multisport watch for COROS Wearables and brings a lot to the table!
COROS™ PACE is a premium comfortable, lightweight, GPS multisport watch with built-in heart rate monitor for continuous tracking of all your training and workout activities. (source)
COROS™ PACE Features
While I have yet to feel this product for myself, I am impressed with the specs.
The COROS™ PACE is built to track performance metrics for swimming, cycling, and running. By analyzing performance data while you train, the COROS™ PACE can give the athlete vital data pertaining to VO2 max, lactate threshold, a race predictor, and recovery recommendations. The technical features include a built-in altimeter, barometer, accelerometer, compass, thermometer, and GPS speed/distance tracking. One of the major bonus’ for me is the wrist based heart rate monitor!
I read that the COROS™ PACE has an outstanding battery life and I can’t wait to see how long it fares with ultramarathon training runs and a 50K at the end of June.
The design of the watch is clean and sleek with a large face and nice wide wrist strap. The COROS™ PACE has many different faces to keep track of your training, heart rate, elevations, calories burned, a step counter, and also receive smart notifications from your phone (emails, calls, texts, etc.). By syncing the PACE with the COROS app, all of your workout data is available to review. I will go over this is more detail when I receive the watch.
While the COROS™ PACE is not yet available for purchase, it should be available starting May 15th! Be sure to follow me on social media to see how the COROS™ PACE holds up to the many miles I have to run and cycle this summer!
