Coros Vertix 2 review | TechRadar

Two-minute review

The Coros Vertix 2 is best described as a smartwatch designed for running and the outdoors – not just for running and cycling, but also hiking, climbing and mountaineering. You may have thought that Garmin has the ‘rugged GPS sports watch’ niche tied up with the Garmin Fenix 6, but the Vertix 2 is a worthy contender, albeit with some slightly underwhelming headline features.

It’s relatively expensive at US$699.99 / £599.99 / AU$1,127. No-one is going to be buying the Coros Vertix 2 on a whim, but it’s a brilliantly designed product with an excellent build quality, and features galore.

Chief among these is its dual-frequency GNSS chipset, which enables to pinpoint your exact position using five separate satellite constellations (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou and QZSS), with unprecedented accuracy. That’s particularly important in places like valleys and gorges, end even more so if you’re climbing a vertical rock face that might otherwise have limited visibility of satellites or physically block or reflect the signals.
