The COROS APEX Pro is a premium watch built from high quality, durable and attractive materials - a titaniumm bezel, sapphire glass and high grade fiber body.
In terms of why to buy the APEX Pro over the APEX or PACE, the main aspects to consider are:
- The APEX Pro incorporates an Optical Pulse Oximeter, a feature not present in the PACE 2 and APEX watches. This can be used to help gauge acclimatisation for example, or recovery.
- The APEX Pro has a 240 x 240 touch screen (as per APEX 46mm).
- The APEX Pro is very strong on battery life, going for up to 40 hours in full GPS mode and for 30 days in regular use. This puts it above the APEX 46mm (30 days, 35 hours), the APEX 42mm (24 days, 25 hours) and the PACE 2 (20 days, 30 hours).
