Steps

Heart Rate
COROS watches measure your heart rate 24/7. On this graph you can view the maximum and minimum heart rate data. A different heart rate history graph is accessible on your watch via the HR widget. Heart rate data is taken every 10 minutes in standby mode and every second in workout modes.

Training Load, Fitness Index and Fitness Level will only appear on Today’s page and aren’t available on the page from a previous date.

Training Load

Fitness Index
Applies to Run, Trail Run and Hike modes. After 3 moderate runs, you will be able to view VO2 Max, Lactate Threshold and Threshold Pace data. Please input the Resting Heart Rate data to the COROS app for better accuracy. Learn how to set resting HR and max HR on the COROS app.

Fitness Level
Applies to Run, Trail Run and Hike modes. This is a fitness and endurance evaluation metric based on the fitness index.

Sleep Tracking
COROS watches track your sleep during night time hours and provide detailed sleep analysis including your sleep cycle and heart rate data. Sleep data can only be recorded after 7PM on each day. Please wear the COROS watch for at least 2 hours before your sleep. It can take several hours before the sleep data shows up on your COROS app.

Heart Rate Zone
There are 3 different heart rate zones for you to choose from. You can decide which one better suits your training needs. Located at the top of the page, the drop down menu provides you options to select and modify Max Heart Rate Zone, Heart Rate Reserve Zone and Lactate Threshold Zone.
Max Heart Rate Zone is the most straightforward one and can be applied to all users. Heart Rate Reserve Zone and Lactate Threshold Zone are usually favored among advanced athletes. Please input a correct Resting Heart Rate (RHR) and Max Heart Rate reading in the Heart Rate Reserve Zone as this will be critical to the accuracy of your fitness index. COROS currently only supports fitness index for outdoor running workouts. If you also utilize other workout modes, you may want to adjust the Lactate Threshold reading in the Lactate Threshold Zone so that you can better set up each sub zone accordingly.
