The pinnacle of global trail running kicks off next week with the UTMB Mont-Blanc race series. Eight trail events combine to highlight the most elite trail runners in the world, culminating with the 106-mile UTMB, starting and ending in Chamonix, France. I’ll ignore the fact that calling the race the UTMB Mont-Blanc is redundant, like saying “ATM machine,” and move on with the news of Coros, which has released the newest version of its best-in-class GPS watch, the Apex 2 Pro Chamonix edition.

According to Coros, its users have now clocked over 1 million meters of vertical ascent in Chamonix, and Coros athlete Kilian Jornet has multiple wins at UTMB; as such, it’s only fitting that they released a limited-edition version of the Apex 2 Pro to celebrate the event and the surrounding region. Limited to 3,000 production units worldwide, the Chamonix edition features a bluish-grey colorway “that echoes Mont Blanc’s highest elevations where rock and glaciers meet the piercing sky.” The watch bezel and rear backing are made of a titanium alloy in that same color, complementing the nylon band with silicone elements.

Seamlessly integrates with the Coros app

Highlights of the Apex 2 pro include a whopping 75 hours of battery life in full GPS mode (30 days of daily use), sapphire glass face, optical heart rate monitor, barometric altimeter, oximeter, gyroscope, and 3D compass. We’ve used the watch daily over the last six months and can confirm the battery life is legendary, the accuracy is spot-on, the interface is incredibly intuitive, and the route guidance is seamless and easy to integrate. In short, it’s the perfect watch for any ultrarunning adventure.

The Coros Apex 2 Pro Chamonix Edition is available now for $449 (same price as the standard version), you can pick it up at the shop link below.
