With great pride we introduce the dedicated speedsurfing work-out mode for the COROS APEX PRO & VERTIX multi-sport watches. In the last months the development teams of COROS and have worked together to develop a tailor made workout mode that will enable instant feedback on the water for all our major categories. 

COROS is a high performance sports technology company with a focus on outdoors and extreme sports. Combining high grade hardware and the latest innovative technology it’s providing athletes the gear they can rely on in the world’s most extreme environments. At GP3S we are extremely happy about this cooperation, the first time ever an industry leading manufacturer stepped into the world of speedsurfing and joined forces with our community !

The excitement we feel working together with COROS bring us back to the early days of the…. being on the edge of technology, innovate, explore, test and create outstanding functionality for our amazing sport. We strongly believe in improvement by doing….not to emphasize upfront what is wrong, but explore what we can do better ! In the last 15 years our tech crew has supported all major developments of all GPS devices currently suitable for GP3S and we have shared all of this knowledge with COROS. 

The current release of this native speedsurfing mode is the first public version available for all COROS APEX PRO & VERTIX owners, and will bring a very high level of accuracy combined with a rock-solid hardware design, amazing battery life and a convenient easy-to-use user interface including auto-uploading to our platform (*). The introduction of this technology will lead to a new era at GP3S, in the next months we will continue to collect data and improve the algorithms together with COROS. Based on the progress we have made in the last months, supported by hundreds of test miles on the water, we are convinced this combination will lead to a future proof, trustable, accurate & verifiability solution that we want for our platform. 

This cooperation is not the endpoint but just the start of great things to come, developing with COROS is an honor, the fast pace, the dedication, open mindset and the will to do this together to make things better gives us the right energy to move forwards into the future. For GP3S it is very important that our community has the opportunity to choose brand independently and to pick the best device available which suits the individual needs of every rider. 

Both the COROS APEX PRO en VERTIX are multi-sport watches suitable to support a large number of (extreme) outdoor/indoor activities and add additional functionality like HR and blood oxygen monitoring. We would like to emphasize that the introduction of the COROS multi-sport watches is an extension to the current set of supported devices at GP3S, the support for all current approved devices will be continued.

(*) auto-uploading will be available in Q4-2020

Dear Team

What a happy news :-) Are both watches approved for competitions and record settings? Can you say a little about the specs compared to the GW60/GT31.

Hope to hear from you soon. Could be a nice little christmas present ;-)

Dear GPS Speedsurfing Team

Great news and cant be better when we can uppload directly on the site ! Fantastic!

Everything that make it easy to upload will make the interest in speedsurfing bigger !

Will order one now but want to know if both are the same for the speedsetting. ?

Take care and well done :-)

We expect to release a dedicated info page about the Coros watches somewhere this month. This will give additional background information about the devices and the way the GPS data is collected , processed & verified by our platform. As mentioned before we are actually in the middle of the development proces together with Coros, and based on the collected and verified data of the last months we are very confident it will reach our standards. The auto-sync feature will also be release before the end of Q4, this feature gives us additional posibilities to verify the RAW GPS data collected by the devices.
