Coros has revealed what it claims is the world’s lightest GPS running watch. One would think that the company made serious battery life compromises for the watch to be this lightweight, but Coros advertises 30 hours of GPS tracking with the new PACE 2 watch. That’s a 20% increase from the original COROS PACE. If you need a little extra life, you’ll need to switch to UltraMax mode when the watch has low battery remaining.
“At just 29g with the COROS nylon band, COROS PACE 2 is the lightest GPS watch in the world at its launch. Don’t let yourself get weighed down by more than you need, with the COROS PACE 2 you will be ready for your new personal best – be it in a race or in the weight room.” Coros said in its website.
COROS PACE 2 has a 1.5x more powerful processor, offers 5x more RAM and 4x more storage than the original COROS PACE, leaving plenty of room for expanded features.
With a new design, featuring the COROS Digital Dial, COROS PACE 2 creates an even simpler user experience. It allows you to get your splits, check your HR or plan your next workout all using just one finger.
COROS PACE 2 offers 20 days of daily use. That’s 20 days of tracking heart rate and sleeping, triggering backlight, measuring steps, getting notifications and even alarms every day.
When the Night Mode is on, it leaves the backlight on for the entirety of your workout. A light bright enough so your eyes can adjust and read in the dark but dim enough to maintain superior battery performance, and it turns off automatically when you finish your workout.
With a roughly 50% weight reduction from the silicone band, the COROS Nylon Watch Band is more breathable and offers new color options.
The Strength Training program has over 200 exercises and growing already built-in for upper body, lower body, core work and more. COROS PACE 2 autodetects your body movements and monitors your heart rate to measure your calories burned.
Once you’re done, check out the all-new muscle heatmap to see which muscle groups saw the most action in a daily, weekly, or monthly view, to help determine your next block of training.
