COROS has really outdone themselves - behold the APEX Pro Watch! They took the already stellar APEX and stuffed it full of even more features, including an insane battery life of 40 hours in full GPS mode. That alone is making the endurance community perk up. But it doesn’t stop there. The Pro model features a touch screen functionality on its durable sapphire glass screen so that using the watch is even easier, including zooming in on the navigation track. For athletes at high elevation, a 24/7 blood oxygen monitoring feature and Altitude Mode allows you to keep an eye on your acclimatization process. Night Mode makes reading your watch easy without draining the battery. As always, the data captured will be used to help you process your workouts to make for more effective training. You can even follow workouts from others and share your own. As with all of the COROS lineup, the APEX Pro is a stylish watch that fits in equally well at the office and the mountains. For the serious athlete, it doesn’t get much better, or more of a mouthful, than the COROS APEX Pro Premium MultiSport Watch.

Questions & Reviews
Not being super tech-savvy I found with the Suunto that there were just a lot of features I wasn't using or lacked the desire to learn how to use. Thankfully with the Apex Pro, I was pleasantly surprised that the setup and ease of use to operate the watch during runs was basically as simple as you could get.
Coros prides itself on the Apex Pro having super long battery life and that was the primary reason that drew me to make this purchase and so far it's lived up to the reputation. I usually charge the watch once a week generally after 6-10 hours of use and it's hardly dipped past 50 percent battery life. After having bad experiences with my Suunto Ambit3 Peak running out of battery life on long endeavors (20+ hours) I am excited to put the Apex Pro to the test.
The Coros app makes pairing the watch with apps like Strava a breeze and offers very in-depth running analysis, which while I don't pay a ton of attention to, is nice to be aware of.
Long battery life, simple to operate, cool watch band colors, and a decent price for a legit GPS watch make the Coros Apex Pro a great purchase. Very excited to put this watch to the test in the upcoming months. Simply put, get this watch.
During most weeks the main problem is I almost always forget where I left the charging cable because I so rarely need it.
The heart rate monitor seems about average for a wrist based monitor, but I turned mine off. Also, have not used the blood oxygen monitoring, not sure how useful/reliable it is.
The watch face has been very durable and has held up great. If you are looking for a simple watch, that has a reliable gps signal, will last forever, and does not try to get too fancy with too many extra features you probably don't need or won't use this is a great option.
