Coros, a Manufacturer of High-tech Bicycle Helmets, Has Released a GPS Sports Watch Aimed at Triathletes

Coros, a company that makes smart cycling helmets, has introduced a GPS wristwatch named the PACE. The battery capacity of the gadget is an impressive thirty days, and it comes with a variety of modes for recording different types of activities.

This is a piece of equipment that was first demonstrated at CES 2018, which was previously held, and it is particularly geared towards the needs of triathletes. The validity of the information is a primary concern for the Garmin alternative. It features five sensors underneath the motor, along with a barometric altimeter for calculating altitude, a heart rate monitor (that works in and out of water), a compass, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope. The pulse rate monitor operates in and out of the liquid. PACE also includes built-in connectivity with GPS, GLONASS, and BDS satellites, and it is water-rated for journeys down to a depth of fifty meters (5 ATMs).

In terms of its build, the wristwatch weighs only 43 grams and features a colour LCD screen measuring 1.2 inches in diameter that allows you to examine your stats. Utilizing the Coros app, the display of the wristwatch can be altered to one’s liking. This application is also the place to go to gain further insight into your statistics, goals, and accomplishments. The addition of Bluetooth 4.2 BLE connections gives the watch extremely quick connection times, and according to the manufacturer, it lowers the amount of time it takes to sync your typical smartphone app in half.

However, the device’s most impressive feature is undoubtedly its battery life. In its regular mode, the 310 mAh lithium-ion battery will be able to keep PACE operational for up to 30 days. This is made possible by low-power technology and a CPU system. This brings the total amount of time in GPS mode down to 25, which is still a respectable amount of time. 

“We are thrilled to simply deliver our first sports watch to the marketplace,” said Lewis Wu, CEO of Coros Wearables. “After evaluating PACE with athletes around the world for months and giving their feedback to our scientists, we are thrilled to put PACE on the market right away.”

“PACE will accompany ultra-athletes in their most demanding races thanks to its status as one of the finest battery capacity athletic timepieces in its class. Customers of Coros can anticipate receiving regular software upgrades, as our tireless group of developers and engineers are constantly trying to improve the product in order to provide users with the highest possible value and the most satisfying experience.”

There is nothing else about PACE that stands out as being particularly innovative, with the exception of its battery life. Despite this, it appears to be a strong first product offering from the manufacturer of smart helmets, and it is available at an affordable price. The primary unit is available in three different colour combinations: black-grey, blue-black, and red-black. Additionally, the silicone band can be purchased in a variety of colours.
