COROS Enters the Cycling Segment with New DURA GPS Bike Computer

Known for its premium smartwatches, COROS has entered the cycling segment with the launch of its new DURA GPS bike computer, offering a water-resistant, backlit LCD screen that can display offline GPX maps, turn-by-turn navigation and upcoming climbs, as well as checkpoints for mid-route guidance.

Additionally, the DURA’s 2.7-inch, 480×240 MIP display can last up to a lengthy 70–120 hours depending on whether you use GPS only or multi-band GPS, along with other features like an altimeter, compass, temp sensor, accelerometer and a gyroscope, relying on Bluetooth or ANT+ protocols to sync with smart trainers and other wearables and devices. The new computer can also track training metrics and fitness levels when connected to a heart rate monitor or smartwatch, displaying workouts or training plans along with FTP Tests, as well as providing safety features such as a bike alarm and crash detection.

Elsewhere, the DURA uses a standard quarter-turn mount and can function in temperatures between -20ºC/ -4ºF and 60ºC/ 140ºF. In addition, the computer is compatible with the Coros app, wherein users can adjust what data fields show up, add and remove routes from Strava or Komoot, and navigate to destinations on the app.

How does it function?

The DURA features just two buttons, one that works like a digital dial (COROS calls it a Crown), allowing users to scroll through pages, similar to what one might find on a smartwatch, while there’s a back/lap button as well. Also, the touch screen allows users to zoom in on pages and navigate through functions similar to the digital dial.

The new COROS DURA sells for $249.00.
