It is with great pride that COROS Wearables Inc., makers of GPS sports technology and training software for multi-sport athletes, announces that its arm-worn Heart Rate Monitor has been recognized as a TIME Best Invention for 2023.

This recognition from TIME highlights COROS’ significant impact on the fitness industry, setting a new standard for precision and user-friendly design and reaffirming the brand’s commitment to innovation and excellence.

“We are thrilled and honoured that the COROS Heart Rate Monitor has been recognized as a TIME Best Invention for 2023,” said Lewis Wu, CEO and Co-founder of COROS. “This accolade not only acknowledges our relentless pursuit of excellence in the field of fitness technology but also reaffirms our commitment to empowering individuals to reach their peak performance. We are excited to continue innovating and providing cutting-edge solutions for fitness enthusiasts worldwide.”

Of the new list, TIME’s editors write: “The result is a list of 200 ground-breaking inventions (and 50 special mention inventions)—including the world’s most powerful supercomputer, a game-changing entertainment venue, and a new shape—that are changing how we live, work, play, and think about what’s possible.”

COROS’ Heart Rate Monitor integrates advanced multi-channel optical sensors for precise tracking, automatically transmitting heart rate data to three Bluetooth® Enabled Devices. With a durable rechargeable battery offering 38 hours of recording and 80 days in standby mode, the monitor features a comfortable fabric band and a low-profile design for seamless wear and minimal distraction during workouts.

Easier to wear than a chest strap, the Heart Rate Monitor’s soft fabric band secures comfortably around the user’s arm with a textured grip, ensuring a low-profile design that won’t snag on clothing or gym equipment, allowing users to concentrate on their performance.

COROS’ Heart Rate Monitor enables standalone use with any 3rd Party Bluetooth® supported device, including GPS Watches, Cycle Computers, and Mobile Devices.
