COROS Wearables Inc., makers of GPS sports wearables and training software for performance and adventure, has announced the launch of its new hart rate monitor accessory. A new way to wear COROS prioritising comfort and data accuracy
COROS presents the HR monitor as a superior alternative to the traditional chest strap. A fully elasticated armband and sliding buckle allow for the perfect fit, enabling a higher HR accuracy reading by removing interference from external light sources, as well as maximising comfort and convenience for the user across any sport.
Four Time winner of UTMB, and COROS Pro Athlete, Kilian Jornet, said, “I’ve been training with the new COROS HR Monitor for some time now, and I couldn’t be happier. The data is precise, the comfort and lightweight on the arm make it feel like you’re not wearing it at all, and the battery duration is incredible”.
The HR Monitor uses COROS’ latest generation multi-channel optical sensor and has 5 LED lights with four photodetectors for maximum accuracy. Built-in wear detection allows the HR Monitor to automatically power on and off based on when it is worn, enabling the user to enter an activity seamlessly and broadcast HR to up to three other Bluetooth® Enabled Devices simultaneously. No buttons. No fuss.
With more power, longer life, and thought for the environment, COROS’ HR Monitor encompasses a built-in rechargeable battery boasting 38 hours of HR recording and 80 days in standby mode on just a single charge. A battery level indicator is visible directly in the COROS watch and app, and a simple LED indicator on the device also indicates when it’s time to charge.
Simpler to wear than a chest strap, the soft fabric band of the HR Monitor lays flat around the user’s arm and locks in place with its textured grip. A low-profile design prevents snagging on clothes or gym equipment, giving the user peace of mind and the ability to focus on being the best.
The HR Monitor is COROS’ first product to allow for full independent use with any 3rd Party Bluetooth® supported device, such as 3rd Party GPS Watches, Indoor Bike Trainers, Cycle Computers, Zwift®, Mobile Devices, and more. Data can also be stored on the HR Monitor for syncing later.
The COROS Heart Rate Monitor will initially be launched on the 27th of July 2023 in the US at an RRP of 79 USD and 599 CNY in China via the COROS Website, Amazon® USA, and Authorised Distributors and Retailers.
For customers and partners based outside of the US & China, a launch date is scheduled for mid-September 2023.
