Pros and cons

According to our smartwatch expert
  • Thanks to the strong sapphire glass, your watch is resistant to scratches.
  • The watch shows heart rate zones during training, so that you can train specifically for improving your stamina, for example.
  • You can find fun or challenging routes on the internet and set them on your watch for navigation.
  • The watch doesn't support music storage, so you need to bring your phone for music during your workout.
  • Because the watch has a small battery, the battery life is shorter than that of the 46mm model.

Description

With the Coros Apex 42mm, you can make long bike rides with GPS without wondering if the battery lasts until the end. The watch has a battery life of 25 hours in GPS mode, and 80 hours in UltraMax GPS mode. We especially recommend the Coros Apex for performance-oriented cyclists. This is thanks to advanced readings and the possibility to connect additional sensors, such as a cadence sensor and power meter. To prevent injuries, the watch measures your total effort on a scale from 0 to 100 and the effect of your training on a scale from 0 to 6. Did a training cost more energy than is good for you? You'll receive the advice to rest. Based on previous data, you also get a precise recovery time. For even more options, you can connect the watch to the popular sports apps Strava and TrainingPeaks.

Note: a charger adapter isn't included. Do you want to charge the watch from a socket? Order a charger adapter separately.

  • 4 / 5 stars

    Good price/quality sports watch

    Tim van Vliet | 27 May 2020 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Large battery power
    • Extensive sports tracking
    • Regular updates and new features
    • Scratch-resistant screen (saphire)
    • Good price vs quality
    • More limited than, for example, a Garmin
    • Heart rate monitor less accurate for all day tracking use
    • Difficult to operate with gloves

    Sports watch with a very long battery life and sturdy construction. With the logging of about 14 hours of GPS activity, a week of standby time, playing with the watch a lot and the watch still has about 30% of battery capacity left. A scratch-resistant screen (saphire) is unique for this price category. The screen is easy to read in direct sunlight and the backlight is bright enough in the dark. The menus are simple and effective. Don't expect a real smartwatch, but an effective sports watch. The company is constantly updating the software and has announced that it will provide this watch with new updates as long as it can.

    A good watch in its category for a low price

    Dries | 25 January 2020 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • It fits very comfortably on the wrist
    • You can adjust a lot yourself how it displays which values
    • I've paired the watch with strava, but I can't seem to find a way to prevent certain activities from uploading to strava
    • The auto function of backlight does not work so well

    I haven't found many negatives at the moment. A great watch for that price.

    By far the best in its price range

    Joren Versaevel | 28 April 2020 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Battery life is bizarre
    • nice watch
    • No maps navigation

    It is a nice, simple watch that can do a lot. A lot better than watches in its price range.

    very satisfied
    • long battery life
    • nice design
    • neat app interface
    • make your own training schedules with ease
    • strength sport function with sets, reps and exercises
    • No SpO2 meter

    I have been using the watch for 10 days now, of which I started exercising for 8 days, including long endurance training, and I still have battery left. The app is sleek looking and you have a ton of data.

    Good, but room for improvement

    I've had this watch for a few weeks now. The GPS is (in my opinion) more accurate than Garmin.
    Not the heart rate monitor, it is just less accurate. So an external chest strap is recommended. I also noticed that my heart rate measured at night with Garmin and Polar was about 36/38, and this watch stops at 40 by default.

    I am satisfied with this device. Yet it is still far from perfect. Fortunately, Coros is still developing well.

    Coros is "the new kid on the block". A keeper!
    • Battery life
    • Power measurement while walking
    • Constant training load
    • Easy to read screen
    • Price

    Many features, great battery life and a reasonable price.
