Make constantly charging your watch a thing of the past. With APEX, you will have a watch that is built to last above and beyond your workout. In UltraMax setting, the battery is carefully engineered to last up to 100 hours using GPS. While using normal mode will yield up to 35 hours, and regular usage up to 30 days.
Transitioning from the workplace to training is easy with the APEX's intelligent build and design. With finish options including titanium alloy and stainless steel bezel alongside a sapphire glass face for extreme protection, you are prepared for any and every environment.
Changing screens and using devices can be overwhelming with traditional buttons, especially in the middle of a workout. With the digital dial, you can easily navigate through the APEX, allowing you to focus on the important things like finishing your run or prepping your next set.
To prevent injury, there’s nothing more crucial than training correctly. We’re able to accurately determine your overall effort, broken down into stamina level (0-100) and training effect (0-6). Exerted way too much stamina? COROS Trainer will notify you it’s time to rest up. Based on the effort level and training history, you will then be able to see an advised recovery window before you begin your next activity.
Equipped with track and navigation features, APEX can be your best tool when you need directions the most. Routes are uploaded and displayed on grid as a bread crumb trail with real time information on heading and elevation and alerts to help you get back on course.
Introducing COROS' very own, Intelligent Stride Algorithm. This unique algorithm embodies machine learning at its core to record your personal range of motion while running. This will build your very own stride model that will be used for indoor running or areas of weak GPS signal (such as tunnels).
Based on a unique algorithm with lactate threshold, VO2 Max and HR, the COROS Trainer dials-in your running training every day. Using your personal historical data along with metrics from your latest activity, such as pace, distance and HR - COROS Trainer will calculate a perceived effort and recommend a time for full recovery.
With COROS Training mode, you can create, share and even download workouts from professional athletes and coaches. Build your own workout in the COROS App for Running, Cycling, Swimming or Strength Training with virtually no limitations. Select from more than 200+ preloaded exercises to create your ideal strength training session. Share your workouts with friends and training partners via text, email, social media or even direct to the app using a QR code. Lastly follow hand-picked workouts from professional athletes and coaches by downloading from coros.com and onto your watch. With the new training mode, your best efforts are well within your reach.
A standard track is 400m, so why can’t GPS devices seem to get it right? With the new Track Run Mode from COROS, a proprietary algorithm, is used to make sure your track runs and workouts are measured accurately regardless of which lane you choose. Gone are the random zigzags across the field, or sharp angled turns, replaced with the smooth straightaways and curves of the track – just like how you run on it.
Working with COROS Performance Optimization Device (POD), APEX is able to provide advanced running metrics in real time, including power and form data to help turn you into a smarter and more efficient runner.Check out COROS POD
The Apex is good looking, built to last, has a bomber battery life, and a long list of features specifically targeting endurance athletes and mountaineers. Whether you're an ultra runner, ironman, recreational runner, or mountaineer, this watch will keep up with you and accompany you seamlessly into the office.
Should you buy it? Yes, the Coros Apex is a solid performing fitness watch for those who run, cycle, or swim. Its extra-long battery life is unrivaled for its size, making it a great choice for endurance athletes.
When power matters, grab the Coros Apex. We tried to kill the battery, but like Michael Myers or Jason Voorhees, it wouldn’t die. A two-hour run knocked only 5 percent off the charge, and it can go all week without having to give it juice.
As I’ve stated, the design and functionality in both the watch and its app are as close to perfect as I could find in a watch.
