Today, COROS is releasing a new version of their popular Pace 2 GPS smartwatch called Blue Steel. This is the first new permanent color option for the Pace 2 since it was first released in 2020.
While the new COROS Pace 2 may be named Blue Steel, a fiber-reinforced polymer will still be used for its cover. A material that helps make the Pace 2 the lightest GPS smartwatch available at just 29g.
From the images available, it looks like the Blue Steel version of the Pace 2 may only be available with the silicon strap. The new product page should be released later today, so we will check in then to see if it is also available with the nylon strap.
I recently reviewed the COROS Pace 2, and although it is a few years old at this point, I found it to still be one of the best (if not the best) runner’s GPS watches available for under $200.
Like the other versions of the PACE 2, the Blue Steel version will cost $199/£179/€199 on release.
COROS also upgraded all of their smartwatches in May with one of their biggest updates yet. This upgrade added the following features to the Pace 2:
- RPE and Training Notes
- Improved Sleep and REM Tracking
- Adjusted Pace in Run mode
- Watch Status indicator
- New Training Calendar View
- “Find My Phone” & “Find My Watch“
- Manually delete activities from the watch
We also made a complete beginners Guide for the COROS Pace 2. If you want to learn more about how all of the features work, make sure to check it out.
