Koros has just unveiled its most comprehensive software update that will offer a bevy of new features, including recommendations on how to recover best after a workout.
Known as EvoLab, the modified software places great emphasis on analyzing your training load in real-time to provide personalized feedback. With this information, the wearables of Koros will have a better understanding of your current fatigue level and whether or not you have reached your maximum energy output and you need to rest.
While it is sure to be a major attraction for runners, Evolab will also tell you if you are ready to tackle a full marathon based on your own matrix and how they compare to other runners. You can also give a new ‘Pace Guide’ which will show you how to handle 5K runs and some distances from above.
Describing the new update, CEO of Koros Wearables, Lewis Wu says: “Our team of developers have spent the last 12 months on the EvoLab project, responding to the performance needs of our users. In the process, they gave athletes The GPS Watch has completely revolutionized the way we achieve personal fitness assessment. The end result allows for better and more efficient training which is ultimately our mission at Koros. “
The new focus on training load and retrieval seems similar to the approach of Hoop Strap 3.0, but while Hoop charges a monthly fee for access to all that data, incorporating all of these metrics can be a killer app in the hands of Koros In its mainline wearables, at no additional cost.
In our Koros Pace 2 review, we were seriously impressed with the company’s super lightweight fitness tracker, which already offered great value for money with a comparatively low £ 179.99 price tag.
For the time being, Evolab will only be available to the first 1000 users to sign up, but the software will be made available for general release within the next month.
