It’s always fun to open new toys. @corosglobal pace multisport watch is hot off the presses and I’m loving so many features: lightweight, integrated HR that even works in the pool, insanely long battery life, instantaneous Bluetooth uploads, easy setting customization from watch or app, metronome for cadence training, and many more. Improved cadence is really making my runs feel great. Can’t wait to see how improved efficiency helps at the @runvermont #vermontcitymarathon next weekend! #bibchat #bibravepro #corosbr #vcmbr #marathontraining
The Coros Pace is the first multisport GPS watch for Coros Wearables and they’ve produced a very impressive product. The $299.99 watch comes out of the box with many awesome features that makes it highly competitive with similar gps watches on the market. My first impressions were that the watch was easy to set up and pair with a smartphone, it’s super light and very slim fitting so is comfortable for 24/7 wear, and the display is the clearest, most easily readable sports watch display I’ve ever seen. Previous to receiving the Coros, I was using a smaller gps watch for daily wear/fitness tracking/shorter workouts, and a second full-feature multisport watch for longer efforts and multisport activities. With the Coros I was able to use the one watch for all activities.

Since the beginning of May I’ve been using the brand new @corosglobal Pace multisport watch and I can finally talk about it! I wore 24hrs/day straight out of the box, including 6 runs and 3 bike rides, without charging. So far I’m really loving the easy to read watch face, user friendly app, and extensive settings customization. The watch is so new that all of the features aren’t even rolled out yet, but the out of the box features are impressive indeed. I’m really loving the metronome feature; my cadence has vastly improved and think it will really help my efficiency at @runvermont #vermontcitymarathon Can’t wait for more. #bibchat #bibravepro #corosbr #vcmbr #marathontraining
My favorite Coros features include:
- built-in optical heart rate monitor (it even works in the pool!)
- barometer for accurate altitude and grade readings (as opposed to watches that rely only on GPS for this data)
- metronome for cadence training
- Beautiful and easy to read display
- Easy to use app for quick updates/changes to watch settings, and display of data. I really loved seeing improvements to my cadence and the consistency in cadence during the Vermont City Marathon.
- Incredibly fast data sync (my workouts sync to the app and strava within seconds after finishing)
- Crazy long battery life. Out of the box the watch lasted more than a week without charging once.
The complete list of features includes:
The Coros Pace is a brand new product so Coros has been very amenable to feedback from the BibRave Pros and has made constant updates for improvement. In addition, new features are actively being rolled out including ability to connect with other platforms (i.e. trainingpeaks) and ANT+ capability to connect to speed/cadence sensors (this is rolling out any day now, if not already – I just haven’t had the chance to check).
Bottom line? I really love this watch. With the additional capabilities coming online imminently, including ANT+, I suspect this will be my primary watch for the foreseeable future. It’s super comfortable, easy to use, accurate, and provides fun and useful data. The price point is very competitive with multisport watches with similar capabilities, and Coros Pace even has some improved features in comparison, in my opinion.
