    While Garmin and Polar have dominated the sales of ultra-sporty linked watches for years, other manufacturers are now attempting to outperform them. This is obviously true for Apple with its Apple Watch Ultra, but it is also true for more specialist businesses like Suunto and Coros.

    This Thursday, the company also launched two new linked watches aimed at athletes, the Coros 2 and Coros 2 Pro. Two watches square off against the Garmin Forerunner 955.

    Unsurprisingly, and as their names imply, these two watches succeed the first Coros Apex, which was introduced by the maker at the end of 2018. If the Pace models are mostly meant for runners, and the Vertix watches are primarily intended for extreme sportsmen, the Coros watches are primarily intended as multisport watches.
