Have you ever set off on an adventure through less than flat territory, looked at the GPS track of your activity and felt like it doesn't provide a great representation of what you just accomplished? We did. COROS now offers a 3D Map view as well as new map overlays, so after an activity, you can view your GPS track in a realistic 3D Space with more available overlays, better capturing the scale and visual aesthetic of your adventure.
Outdoor activity summaries in the COROS App now support the Mapbox Overlays/Layers:
- 2D/3D: You can now view your workout track in the standard 2D birds eye view or a 3D view laid onto the landscape you were travelling over.
- Outdoor: A detailed topographic and landscape map overlay of your workout
- Satellite: A map overlay of your workout provided by satellite imagery
- Winter: A map overlay of your winter-type workout, showing ski runs, topographic data and landscape data
- Dark: A dark map overlay for your nighttime activities showing landscape data
The app will automatically overlay activity tracks on a 3D map. Users now can visualize the
changes in elevation straight from the COROS app.
❗ This feature has minimum system requirements of iOS 9 and Android 4.3

COROS watches now utilize the thermometer built into the barometer to provide temperature data for open water and pool swimming activities.
Temperature Calibration (already on VERTIX 2):
System > Sensors > Calibration > Thermometer
To measure, take off your watch and set it on any surface for at least 30 minutes, then enter the real temperature to calibrate the sensor.
- Water Temp.
- Avg Water Temp.
(Available on VERTIX 2/VERTIX 1/APEX 2/APEX 2 Pro/APEX Pro/PACE 3/PACE 2)
Virtual Run enables COROS watches to broadcast indoor running metrics, including pace, cadence, and heart rate. You can now pair COROS watches with software like Zwift and Rouvy. This feature allows users to start a virtual run activity with only a treadmill and COROS watch.
A) Open up Zwift or another virtual running platform on PC/iPad/iPhone/Android/etc., enter pairing mode:
B) To use Virtual run on the watch, select "Indoor Run" then "Virtual Run". Wait until the watch has been found by Zwift or any other platform before starting.
C) Next, choose COROS VERTIX 2 (or desired watch), and start the running session.
D) Press "OK" to start the run. When you see the character appear, press start on your COROS watch. When finished with a run, end the activity on the App (for example Zwift), Zwift will automatically upload the activity to the server. You can then press stop on your COROS watch and save the activity. There will be two separate activity records. One created in Zwift (this one will not be shown or stored in the COROS app) and an additional activity saved to the COROS app.
