COROS POD 2
RUN BEYOND THE LIMITS OF GPS
Meet the all-new COROS POD 2. A lightweight, water-resistant watch accessory that clips onto your shoe or waistband for next level running data accuracy. With optimized sensor hardware and intuitive software algorithms, the POD 2 measures your run directly from your foot or body movements. It connects to your COROS watch to provide real-time data, so you can always train or race with the right information.
THE PROBLEM
GPS technology is amazing, but it’s not perfect.

Tall buildings interfere with satellite data

Pace changes can have up to 10 seconds delay

Indoor running is just guesswork

OUR SOLUTION
The POD 2 solves GPS watch technology's most common problems during running, including data lag, weak signal & satellite disruption. By tracking movement directly from your foot, the POD 2 improves accuracy and pace sensitivity to help you train smarter and more efficiently.
MORE SENSITIVE INSTANT PACE
Say Goodbye To Data Lag
With the advanced accelerometer in the POD 2, you'll receive data directly from your foot to create the most responsive pace displayed on your watch. The POD 2 removes the up to 10-second delay caused by GPS watches wrist sensors. With the built-in pace alert, your COROS watch paired with the POD 2 ensures you can stay within your targeted pace in nearly real-time, instead of waiting for your data to catch up, even when there is no GPS signal.
MORE ACCURATE INDOORS
A Reliable Way To Measure Distance Indoors
With accurate pace detection, the POD 2 measures the exact distance you've run, even when indoors. By plotting the motion of your foot through space on an XYZ plane, the POD 2 automatically calibrates itself to calculate your stride and the distance you've run on a treadmill, or an indoor track. COROS POD 2 will be your perfect training partner for indoor running workouts in winter, or when the weather is bad.
MORE CONSISTENT IN THE CITIES
Improved Track Where GPS Signal Is Weak
GPS technology can experience interference. Running through tunnels or the first few miles of the Chicago marathon between skyscrapers not only disrupts your watch's pace and distance data, but also creates messy GPS tracks. That's where the POD 2 steps in. With data gathered from various internal sensors, the POD 2 is able to auto-correct GPS disruptions such as pace spikes and drops. Your COROS watch works collaboratively with the POD 2 to improve data consistency during your runs.
MORE PRECISE ON HILLY TERRAIN
A Comprehensive Metric For All Of Your Training
Not all running terrain is perfectly flat. Effort Pace is a unique COROS metric that tells you how hard you're actually working when on hilly terrain. With instantaneous data input from COROS POD 2, your Effort Pace becomes even more accurate. The POD 2 makes your Effort Pace 5x more responsive than standard GPS, so you can make split-second decisions and better analyze your overall exertion once a workout has ended.
BEYOND GPS
The POD 2 doesn’t stop there. It delivers advanced running metrics in a lightweight, sleek design that’s simple to use and will outlast your longest runs.
EVEN MORE RUNNING INSIGHTS
Using smart detection of wearing position (shoe or waistband), the POD 2 provides key metrics to help you better understand your running gait, form, and technique.

Stride Height

Left/Right Balance

Ground Contact Time

Stride Ratio

MONITOR OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE
The POD 2 records ambient temperature readings throughout your run, so you know exactly how hot or cold it was during your activity. You can use these data points to further analyze your runs as you train in different climates, or during different seasons.
BATTERY LIFE YOU CAN’T BEAT

The POD 2 is equipped with a powerful battery that stays charged for weeks. Coupled with the portable charging dock that supplies up to 5 full charges, you'll never have to worry about a low battery.

+Up to 28 hours of continuous running

+Up to 168 hours of total running (with charging dock)

LIGHTWEIGHT AND WEATHERPROOF
Weighing in at only 5.6g, you won't even notice you're wearing the POD 2 when training or racing. Whether you're on the roads or in the mountains, the POD 2 can withstand the elements, from below-freezing temperatures to high heat (14°F to 140°F / -10°C to 60°C), and stays water resistant up to 3 ATM.
SETUP MADE EASY
The POD 2 can be worn on your shoe, or clipped to your waistband, and will sleep to preserve the battery when it's not moving.
PAIR
Add COROS POD 2 to your COROS app to pair with connected watches automatically.
