An adventure by definition is an exciting experience. With the VERTIX 2 GPS Adventure Watch, COROS brings you bold innovations as well as unimaginable advancements to existing features - all so you can conquer exciting new challenges you maybe haven't even thought of yet. No matter where your pursuits take you – the VERTIX 2, will be there every step of the way.

We currently have a VERTIX 2 in for review and we'll publish our opinion in the coming weeks.

The VERTIX 2 can talk to all five major satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS, and Beidou) at the same time. It even offers Dual Frequency satellite communication - an express lane for a faster, better signal previously only available in aviation products.

VERTIX 2 brings huge improvements to GPS plotting when navigating between tall buildings, deep within the forest, or alongside rock walls, which have been considered an accuracy challenge for previous generations of GPS watches.

Even More Power

Built from the ground up, the VERTIX 2 utilizes our next-generation chipset and processor, allowing for a better and faster COROS experience. With these advancements, VERTIX 2 is over 20% faster than the original VERTIX.

The Big Screen

A 1.4-inch screen with 16% higher resolution allows the VERTIX 2 to present more information at a glance and keep you updated with key metrics anytime and anywhere. The VERTIX 2 also supports up to eight data fields on a single page giving you more of the information you crave throughout your activities.

How's it hanging

For those activities when a watch on the wrist just doesn't make sense but you still need your data, like on a big wall mission with COROS pro athlete Tommy Caldwell - take advantage of the COROS Watch Carabiner. This must-have accessory for climbers and other adventurers locks in the frame of your watch and clips onto your harness or other gear. The VERTIX 2 is the first watch in the world to include a Multi-Pitch Climbing activity profile and its dual-frequency technology is unsurpassed for accurately tracking your activity on the rock. Here's an article which articulately explains dual-frequency technology in GPS watches and why it makes the VERTIX 2 the best in the business.

Mind-Blowing Battery Life (Again)

What happens when you take the amazing COROS battery efficiency and make it even better? Look no further than the VERTIX 2 to find out. VERTIX 2 offers the longest battery life you've ever seen in a GPS Watch. With 140 hours of standard full GPS tracking and 60 days of normal use, the VERTIX 2 more than doubles the battery life of its already market leading predecessor. VERTIX 2 is ready for your longest and toughest adventure.

Who Runs the World

The VERTIX 2 GPS Adventure Watch offers global offline mapping, and includes: Landscape, Topo, and Hybrid modes. The VERTIX 2 comes with a full global Landscape map out of the box and users can download their Topo map by regions for free from COROS.com. By zooming in and out of the map with the digital-dial, or dragging around the map with the highly-responsive touch screen, the VERTIX 2 offers the best experience for on-wrist navigation.

Don't Stress

With the VERTIX 2 ECG (Electrocardiogram) capabilities, you can use your GPS Watch to measure your Heart Rate Variability (HRV) straight from your wrist. HRV is an ideal metric for measuring your body's response to stress and its ability to recover. The COROS system converts each individualized HRV into an easily comparable metric from athlete to athlete.

Now you can download and control your audio files straight from your GPS Watch. Additional Wi-fi capabilities are also available on the VERTIX 2 adding even greater possibilities for accessory pairing and more.

I looked at Coros watches a little while ago - and found out that you couldn't actually get the Coros watch to display an OS grid reference for your current location. They confirmed this when I emailed them and said it was 'something they were going to look into for a future version'. So obviously, that made them pretty hopeless for use in the UK! :D

Hopefully, if you're going to do a proper review of their (new?) 'adventure' watch, can you put that at the top of the list of things to test for, and report on? Thanks.
