A Season for Exploring
Southern California surprisingly got a nice and cool spring, making it perfect for running and cycling for the past three weeks. I am sure our friends with COROS seized this opportunity to get a lot of mileage in. Hopefully, you are over halfway on your annual goals already!
Outdoor sports is one of the most enjoyable activities that exist in the world. At team COROS, some of us are technology enthusiasts, while some put in a lot of hours training for running, cycling, swimming and climbing. There are a lot of exciting new technologies in the industry that can be applied to outdoor sports, enabling our athletes to become faster, stronger, and safer – all while having fun at the same time. That’s the foundation of why we started this company.
In the past six months, we have spent countless hours working with athletes worldwide to test our first multisport watch, PACE, before it launched to the public. In the beta testing phase, our testers have contributed a total of 5,055 runs, 3,127 ride, 755 swims and 46 triathlons. That’s a total of 6,732 hours training and 43,577 miles (70,131 km) of distance. With the help from our testers, our PACE has received 460 feedback cases, 528 bug fixes and 42 versions of software updates. Although, our engineers are still working very hard to bring additional software features, we finally believe PACE is ready for the athletes worldwide. We will continually provide updates here for future software releases.
COROS is a young company composed of a team of people who share the same excitement from building something that has never existed before. We call ourselves explorers. Now, you might be thinking to yourself that this only applies to certain individuals. I’m here to tell you that it applies to everyone! It is not just exploring a new race, new trail, or a new mountain. It is a lifestyle that keeps curious about any untouched area. At COROS, if your heart beats, you are an explorer.
Last, but certainly not least, COROS will be officially showing off our favorite smart helmet and watch on Rock-N-Roll marathon in San Diego this weekend! Our team will be present at the exhibit, so don’t forget to stop by and say hello! We may have some nice surprise for you at the event as well.
See you there! If you can’t join us, follow us on social @COROSglobal and COROS Strava group to explore with us!
