Use Indoor Run mode on your COROS watch to track your treadmill runs or other indoor runs (such as an indoor track). Depending on the type of run and whether or not you are using a foot pod, there are different settings you can choose within Indoor Run mode.
Standard Indoor Run
If you are running on a treadmill or indoor track without using a foot pod, you will need to manually adjust the speed on the watch. Before pressing Start, scroll down to Settings > choose Speed > select your current speed. If your treadmill is set to an incline, you can also select Grade and select the current grade.
You can always change the Speed and Grade settings throughout your indoor run. To do so, first pause the activity. Then, long press the Back button to open the toolbox menu. Scroll to Activity Settings. Here you can select either Grade or Speed to change the value.
With a foot pod
If you are paired with the COROS POD or another foot pod, simply press Start to begin recording. You may need to wait until the green accessory icon turns solid, indicating that the foot pod is fully paired to your watch.
Before pressing start, scrolling down and select Virtual Run. This will automatically pair your watch to Zwift and sync information between both platforms. For more information, please see our article on Virtual Run.

Indoor Run distance and pace calibration
COROS watches support calibration on Indoor Run workouts. The calibration range is up to +/ - 25% of the distance recorded by the watch. Running at a consistent pace is the number 1 rule to ensure accurate distance tracking for indoor runs. Consider doing warm-up and cool-down sessions in separate workouts.
Indoor Run distance calibration doesn't apply to 3rd party apps because they often use their own algorithms to recalculate the distance, pace and other data before displaying the data to you. Simply feeding the calibrated distance to 3rd party apps doesn't work. You will need to manually adjust the distance on 3rd party apps.
COROS watches utilize cadence to estimate pace with the help of a powerful cadence-pace model. If your pace appears to be wrong and needs to be updated, you can rely on the post-workout distance calibration on the watch. The watch will use the average cadence of the workout and the new distance to calculate the new pace for that cadence, updating the cadence-pace model. All the other cadences will receive an update via the model. The pace will be correct the next time you run indoors with any cadence. How to ensure proper distance tracking for indoor runs
