“COROS and Kilian have worked in unison to build a bigger and better platform for training since the day our partnership originated,” said Lewis Wu, CEO, COROS Wearables. “While the Limited-Edition watch is a physical representation of this partnership, Kilian’s influence can be witnessed by all COROS Users via the recently introduced ‘Effort Pace’ metrics,” Added Wu.

Kilian Jornet on his signature edition APEX 2 Pro, “I spend many hours every day outdoors, training to improve my level, adventuring in the mountains. For this, I need to rely on data to monitor my training stimulus. During the past year working with COROS developers, I’ve learned a lot about this, creating the best tools for me to use when trail running, skimo or out in the mountains. I believe that with this special edition APEX 2 Pro, we can keep pushing how the COROS device can help me – or anyone- improve their training.”
