The Apex is one of the best GPS smartwatches from Coros, it’s sturdily built with tough materials, equipped to track your active life and it has a long battery life that lets you go longer. It comes in two sizes; 46mm and 42mm, the difference between the two is that the 46mm model has a more durable build and a longer battery life than the 42mm model.

Coros Apex has a sturdy build that includes aluminum for the case with sapphire glass material covering the display while the 22mm/20mm interchangeable straps come in silicone or nylon. Moreover, while the 46mm has a titanium bezel, stainless steel is used for the bezel of the 42mm.

The Apex 46mm has a 1.2 inches display compared to 1.1 inches of the 42mm, both of which are always-on and powered by LCD. Navigating any of these two is through the two physical buttons. Both models are rated 10ATM which makes any of these two a suitable choice you can wear to the pool or ocean.

Beyond the stylish and elegant design, the Apex is well equipped to track your active life comprehensively. It can track your sleep, heart rate, calories, VO2 Max., floors climbed and feature triathlon sport mode as well as many preloaded sport modes. It also supports third-party apps such as Strava and TrainingPeaks.

This watch will also keep you connected to updates received on your phone, while its long battery life will keep you going for much longer from a single charge.
