Tustin, CA, January 12, 2021 – COROS Wearables Inc., makers of premium endurance sports wearables, announced today the introduction of the new seasonal color variant for its award winning COROS VERTIX Premium GPS Adventure Watch – Desert Sol.

Desert Sol is inspired by the sun-soaked desert towers of Southern Utah – represented in the burnt orange/amber nylon watch band, and the yellow bezel engravings. The season model also features a special emblem on the rear of the watch, created to evoke a renewed spirit as we transition from a challenging 2020 into a hopeful 2021.

With a fresh start to the new year, the COROS VERTIX Desert Sol will come with a complementary edition of “Training for the Uphill Athlete,” co-authored by COROS Pro Athlete and world-renowned Alpinist and Coach Steve House. The book is available in English, as well as French, German and Polish through local international distributors. “Training for the Uphill Athlete” is considered the go to resource for all mountain sports from Trail Running to Ski Mountaineering to climbing and is the perfect guide to help create your 2021 Training Plan.

Exciting features of the new COROS VERTIX Desert Sol:

  • Only 550 units available worldwide
  • Translucent Fiber watch body, showcasing the watch’s innerworkings
  • Ultra-light Nylon watch band with hook and loop closure
  • 60 Hours of Battery Life in Full GPS Mode, 150 Hours of Battery Life in UltraMax Mode

“As we look to put 2020 in the rearview mirror, we encourage everyone to take a moment to reflect on the challenges they faced and the lessons learned that they will take with them into the year ahead,” said Lewis Wu CEO of COROS. “Desert Sol was created to serve as a reminder to the athlete, every time that they look down at their watch that they are stronger than their greatest obstacle. The futuristic design along with unique emblem keep the athlete looking forward.”
