Made for virtually any sport and any athlete
This time of year, we’re all about shedding pounds. The COROS PACE 2 Premium GPS Sports Watch is no different. However, don’t be fooled by its slim design — the COROS PACE 2 is no lightweight. Not only does this 29-gram powerhouse determine where you are with GPS/GLONASS/BEIDOU satellite connections, it can also tell you how you are, with its optical heart rate monitor, barometric altimeter, accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, and thermometer. Plus, on less than two hours of charging time, you can get 30 hours in full GPS mode.
Even better, the watch is made for virtually any sport and any athlete, whether you are chasing your PR or your kids. XTERRA’s own Emily McIlvaine is a runner and busy working mom who gave the COROS a test run.
“I was extremely happy with the performance of this watch,” she said. “As a mom of three small kids, it helped me track my activity throughout the day and gave me access to my messages with freedom from my phone. As a recreational runner, I do not always track my heart rate or pace per mile, but I became competitive with myself during my workouts when using the COROS PACE 2 watch.”
Unlike other technical watches with difficult-to-sync apps, the COROS has an intuitive, out-of-the-box setup.
COROS is offering a free accessory for savings up to $39.99 with every watch purchase by using the promo code XTERRA. Add the accessory to your cart before applying the code during checkout.
“It was incredibly easy to set up with my smart phone,” said McIlvaine. “I was able to sync the watch to display my emails, text messages, and even Facebook messages. It mapped my outdoor runs, tracked my steps, and displayed my heart rate and elevation gain, and showed my energy exertion on an easy-to-interpret display for each exercise session.”
For anyone training for virtual trail runs (hello, all of us!), the COROS is compatible with many race platforms, which often require raw GPS data for your results to be legit. And while it does a great job measuring effort, its sleep tracker can show you how well your recovery is.
“It was helpful — and a little depressing — to see my sleep activity,” said McIlvaine. “I usually don’t pay much attention, but the COROS helped me actually see why I am so tired all the time!”
This little wrist warrior comes in at a very slim price too, of only $199.99. Just about the only thing this dynamo doesn’t do is babysit. But with the COROS, you may be inspired to round up your crew and hit the trails together. Check it out today.
