COROS has renewed as the official watch of Transgrancanaria

The North American watch brand is a benchmark in sports technology for endurance athletes – The firm will unveil its new and exclusive APEX 2 Pro model designed by Kilian Jornet at the Trail Zone.

COROS, the US watch brand which has become the leading reference for mountain trail runners in just five years, has renewed its partnership as the official chrono for Transgrancanaria 2023. The company will be present at the Trail Zone where they will present their new exclusive model designed by Kilian Jornet, with only 5,000 units on sale.

The partnership between COROS and Transgrancanaria started in 2022 with an agreement in which the brand became one of the main sponsors of the most important long-distance trail race in Spain. In the last year, the COROS growth has been outstanding thanks to the new models that combine the newest technology, designed with the advice and guidance of top endurance athletes in the world, with a modern design in constant development that meets the needs of today’s trail runners.

The California based brand lists among its athletes Kiliant Jornet and Emilie Fosberg, who became part of the team last year; Manuel Merillas, Aroa, Virginia, Sara Alonso, Antonio Martínez, Camille Herron, the climber Tommy Caldwell or the world marathon record holder and winner of two gold medals at the Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo Olympic Games, Eliud Kipchoge or the Brooks Trail Europe team.

The latest technology combined with the expertise of the best endurance and mountain athletes has led to models such as COROS VERTIX 2, with a 60 day battery life for long endurance activities, and the COROS PACE 2, the lightest watch in the world at its launch, weighing only 29 grams.

COROS recently unveiled its latest innovation: the COROS APEX 2 Pro Kilian Jornet Edition, an exclusive watch featuring the hallmark of the greatest mountain trail runner of all time. This version of the APEX 2 Pro is aimed at those looking for pinpoint accuracy in location, thanks to its connection with the five main satellite systems; the latest technology, with a latest generation heart rate sensor; and a battery life that provides 75 hours of full GPS. All with Kilian Jornet’s signature.

The brand will be on display with its entire line at the Trail Zone of Transgrancanaria, the trail running trade fair that will feature more than twenty different stands. The exhibition will be open from the 22nd to the 24th of February at the Expomeloneras Convention Centre.

The Transgrancanaria, which will be held between the 22nd and 26th of February, is sponsored by the Cabildo de Gran Canaria through Turismo de Gran Canaria and Gran Canaria Isla Europea del Deporte, the Gobierno de Canarias with Promotur – Islas Canarias, Maspalomas Costa Canaria, Instituto Municipal de Deportes de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Ayuntamiento de Tejeda; and the firms SWE, Fred Olsen Express, Hospitales Universitarios San Roque, Expomeloneras, 226ERS and Sonocom Audiovisuales, as well as the collaboration of COROS, Petzl, Aguas de Teror, Ahembo, Emicela, Vivac Aventura, Lorenzo Gonzalez Automoción, Tirma, Hotel Aloe Canteras, Inerza and Provital.
