Coros Vertix 2 review: a solid GPS smartwatch for adventurers and number-crunching runners

The Vertix 2 from Coros is a great looking smartwatch that offers a raft of metrics and analysis features…if you’re a runner (image credit: The Gear Loop)
First impressions are good, as the watch is hens from a hunk of titanium and glass, which looks stunning. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The main feature of the Vertix 2 is it’s astounding battery life. It’ll run for 140 hours with full GPS enabled, or stretched to 240 hours. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The 1.4 inch touch screen is crisp and legible, even in direct sunlight, and the touch functionality means panning around the maps is a doddle. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The Vertix 2 talks to all five major satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS, and Beidou). Most devices only access one or two. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
This equates to some serious accurate GPS navigation, route-plotting and activity tracking. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The companion app is nowhere near as feature-rich as rivals, but Coros does offer some serious running performance software. Read the full review for more. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
