COROS Most Accurate Wrist-Based Heart Rate

Accurate data is critical for all athletes. Heart rate and GPS are the two most important data inputs that can help athletes gain insights into how they are training, recovering, and increasing fitness. COROS VERTIX 2S has COROS' latest 5-LED and 4-photodetector optical heart rate sensor to accurately monitor heart rate during exercise and for daily wear.

Durability Meets Elegance

Capable of withstanding 10 atmospheres below or operating in no atmosphere at all, the new COROS VERTIX 2S Earth, Moon, and Space editions celebrate mankind’s never-ending spirit of adventure in the most challenging environments. Each style features a stunning new watch face design depicting its name, and in a first for VERTIX series watches, both the rugged silicone and lightweight nylon bands in matching colors are included in the box.

Unmatched Climbing GPS Accuracy

Even with dual-frequency, accurate GPS tracking for climbers tackling steep walls, chimneys, or off-width cracks has been a challenge for all GPS watch brands. COROS has taken a significant step forward in solving this problem with an optimized GPS algorithm for Outdoor Climb mode.

For Athletes Who Want the Most From Their Watch

With all COROS watches, athletes have access to much more than just a watch. The COROS app gives insights to monitor your training progress, build workouts and training plans, and create routes at no additional cost.

The VERTIX 2S also includes all the standard health tracking metrics in all COROS watches. Users can monitor recovery, sleep tracking, heart rate variability, steps, calories, and more.
