Ever wonder if you could quantify that perfect day in the mountains or that time you did more laps than you thought possible, or even that type II fun sufferfest that you're now proud of in hindsight? Funny thing, COROS makes these fancy watches to help you do just that! The APEX features an intuitive software system, tons of customization options, and a battery life that we dare you to tour long enough to see its end. The 46mm model has a ridiculous battery life of 100 hours in UltraMax GPS mode and 35 hours in normal mode. The 42mm model is no slouch either with 80 hours UltraMax GPS, 25 hours full GPS, and 24 days of regular use. On both, the interface consists of a single scrolling button to keep things simple and maximize ease of use without limiting any functionality. A locking mechanism requires a spin to unlock the screen so that this one-and-only approach is very secure. That way you won't start, stop, reset, or erase anything by accidentally pushing the button. Customizable data screens can be dialed in for each activity you choose. Data of all sorts can be stored and tracked when you hook up to the COROS app on your smartphone. This powerful tool gives you feedback on a wide variety of parameters and helps track training logs, or just let you know how the day went. With the COROS APEX, you can reliably record the important stats of your outings while you enjoy your time in the mountains.
