During DND period, your COROS watch automatically enters DND mode.

APEX Pro and VERTIX users can access this page by tapping on the watch image.

If you can’t receive notifications on your COROS watch, please follow the steps below.

  • - Ensure that your phone isn’t on Sleep or DND mode.
  • - Ensure that your COROS watch isn’t on DND mode.
  • - Ensure the Bluetooth connection is established.

GPS Satellite Data
GPS satellite data is required for a fast GPS acquisition time on COROS watches. It is highly recommended to download GPS satellite location data and send to your COROS watch prior to workouts. Once the latest data is stored on your COROS watch, it will remain valid for 3 to 7 days depending on the watch model.

You will be notified when GPS satellite data stored on your COROS watch is about to expire. Sync your watch with the COROS app usually updates this info automatically. Occasionally you may need to manually update this by tapping on this option. If you travel over 200 miles / 322 km away from the last satellite connection, please manually update this info.

When this data expires, the GPS signal acquisition time may take substantially longer and over 2 minutes. If your outdoor workout is started without successfully acquiring the GPS signal, the GPS tracking and other workout data will be severely affected.

Firmware Update
If a new firmware version is available, you will notice a popup message or a red dot on the Device page. Tap on “Firmware Update” to download and update the firmware on your COROS device. Keep your COROS device and smartphone in Bluetooth range. Don’t close the COROS app during the update process.

If there’s no firmware available for your device to update, please check and update the COROS app on iOS App Store or Google Play Store.

If you receive a popup message “Update failed. Please try again.”, tap on “Try again” to restart the update. Normally it will resume from the last saved progress. This is not uncommon during the update process as the device is installing software updates that may interrupt the Bluetooth connection.
