Coros Apex (42mm) Full Specifications and Features – Coros Apex is a lightweight GPS smartwatch that’s durably built with tough materials and equipped for the great outdoors while also being a comprehensive fitness tracker with long battery life. Coros Apex comes in two sizes; 42mm and 46mm, the difference between these two is that the 46mm has a longer battery life with a more sophisticated design than the 42mm.
The Apex (42mm) comes in a stylish design that is made up of an aluminum case, while the straps come in silicone or nylon materials which results in a lightweight design. The silicone model weighs a little more than the nylon model.
However, both are still very lightweight. The screen is protected by durable sapphire glass material which is mainly seen on premium devices. Navigation is through the 2 physical buttons by the sides, these two watches lack touchscreen support, while the bezel is made of stainless steel.
The 42mm model has a 1.1 inches display powered by MIP LCD that can be read easily even under sunlight. It’s the same display technology that has been used on many Garmin smartwatches.
Coros Apex is fitness oriented and equipped with a heart rate sensor, accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, altimeter, and multi-satellite inbuilt GPS that enables it to track your steps, calories, heart rate, fitness level, and outdoor activities like location, routes, distance with lots of preloaded sport mode to choose from.
Beyond the fitness tracking features, Coros Apex will alert you when you receive a notification on your phone. It syncs the watch data to the Coros app to enable you to administer and manage your fitness goals.
The battery life of Coros Apex will keep you tracked for longer with the 46mm averaging 30 days and 42mm 24 days on regular usage.
