To pair your COROS watch with your Runna app (using the Runna website), click Connected Apps and turn on the COROS connection. You’ll be prompted to log in with your COROS credentials and the workouts will be synced automatically to your COROS app and watch. When you switch plan or edit your current plan, this will automatically update your workouts for you. And when you mark a workout as complete, we’ll remove it from your profile. Please note that your COROS workout will appear in the same unit of measurement as your Runna plan so we recommend making sure your COROS account is configured to use that same unit of measurement.
This integration will automatically sync any future unlocked weeks to your COROS connect profile. For users on a free week, there will be access to workouts from that week only. For Runna Premium users, it will automatically sync the following two weeks of workouts to your profile.
Setting up your training calendar
After pairing your COROS account, you'll need to import your Runna training calendar into the COROS app by following the below steps:
1. Head to the COROS home screen and press 'My Training Plan'
2. Press 'Add Plan' and click on Runna Training Plan
3. Press 'Start training plan' and click 'Ok'
Runna cannot send workouts to COROS on dates in the past. For this reason, when you link to COROS to Runna for the first time, workouts may appear on the same day in your COROS calendar. For example. If you are on Wednesday of week 2 of your plan and you link COROS, workouts From Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will all appear on Wednesday. This is done so that users can still see the full week's workouts in their COROS app and choose to complete any of those workouts if they desire.
Setting up your COROS to get the most out of your workouts
There are a number of settings that we recommend configuring in order to make the most out of your Runna workouts when downloaded to your COROS watch.
Turn off auto-lap
By default, your COROS watch will automatically create a new ‘lap’ every 1km or 1mi. For the longer splits that we set you (e.g., 2km repeats) this means that the splits will automatically be lapped (split into a new step in your run) mid-way through which makes analyzing your average pace afterward difficult. We recommend turning off auto-lap when following your Runna workouts, but also recommend turning it back on again if you’re going for a casual run, time-trial or race so that your watch will keep you updated on your pace.
Turn off auto-pause
Auto-pause will automatically pause your workout when it detects that you’ve stopped moving (e.g., at traffic lights). However, this can be a problem when running interval workouts since while you’re resting, even if walking around, it can detect that you’ve stopped running and pause the workout including the timer to start running again. We recommend turning off auto-pause and getting into the habit of manually pausing and resuming the workout when you are forced to stop running temporarily (e.g., at traffic lights).
Tracking your progress
After you’ve completed your run, we recommend checking it out either on the COROS app or by syncing it to Strava. This will allow you to compare your splits against what our coaching team set you and share your run with family and friends. If you’re consistently beating, or not making, your pace targets then we suggest editing them to make your targets challenging yet achievable.
