So the chorus pace 2 is the only sport watch off today, which costs under 200 bucks and can get you triathlon mode. Now being a sport watch, we can talk about features and functions, but obviously it’s no match for a smartwatch, but does it have to be now we’ve? Had several sport watches on the west nose channel we’ve had the polar ignite we’ve had the polar unite. We’Ve had a couple of the garment watches on here, but i can tell you what that under 200 bucks, the core space 2 does offer a lot of customizations a lot of smart features and, most importantly, very cool sport features. Let’S talk about what the watch was. Actually built for, and that is sports, there are only 12 sport modes and that may seem like it’s, not that much, but there are quite a few butts because the 12 sport modes are actually very useful.
They are the ones they are, the sports that you will be using on a day to day basis, but on top of that, the core space 2 actually offers dedicated strength, training app. So this is something that will allow you to train, to do your strength, training in the gym and actually measure your progress, measuring and keeping track of what you actually did. It will show you your muscle map, but let’s get into the details. So the dedicated strength training program has over 200 exercises already built in for upper body, lower body core work, chest legs and arms. The chorus pace 2 auto detects your body movements and monitors your heart rate and calories burned during those particular exercises. Once you are done check out the all new muscle heat map to see which muscle groups saw the most action in a daily, weekly or monthly view using the muscle heat map will actually help you determine which muscle group to work next time or the next workout. Now, if you’re not too much into the gym, workouts or if you are into the gym, workouts and also running no issue with the core space too, because you also get a verified training plan for your running. So this training plan can actually keep you on track and even teach you and even take you from being a complete newbie in running to being an amateur or quite an experienced runner. So all you do, is you go to the app you set up your training plan? You choose a program that you want to do and you follow through from the watch, because it will tell you when you need to go out on your training session and what exactly you’re expected to do to grow your level or to maintain a particular level.
Now, as we know, another really important feature on any sport. Watcher is heart rate tracking, because really this is one of the most important things or the original things. What sport watchers were great at. So there is the optical heart rate sensor on the back of the smartwatch, and it works in a very special way. Now we know that not every activity gets your blood flowing in the same way. Easy runs are more consistent, while interval sessions and weight lifting see more peaks and valleys. Coros has developed unique heart rate algorithms for each activity mode to provide you with better wrist based heart rate accuracy. Let’S go through some of the sensors found on the core space too. Just for you to see that this is quite a serious contender in the sport watch market. So we’ve got the optical heart rate. Monitor on the back. We’Ve got the barometric altimeter we’ve got an accelerometer, we’ve got a compass, a gyroscope, a thermometer and another major benefit is the connectivity. There are so many options it can connect via ant plus and bluetooth. Now this is considered a heavy duty. Sport watch and the temperature ranges it can actually operate in are minus 20 to plus 60 degrees celsius. So in summary, we’ve got a sub 200 sport watch, which has a lot of functionality which brings a lot to the table. It looks like a sport watch. It feels like a sport watch, it does what it says on the box: it measures it tracks, it monitors it does it with style, and it does so quite accurately.
