COROS launches seasonal COROS VERTIX color – Desert Sol

COROS announced the introduction of the new seasonal colour variant for its COROS VERTIX Premium GPS Adventure Watch – Desert Sol.

Coros Desert Sol

Desert Sol is said to be inspired by the sun-soaked desert towers of Southern Utah – represented in the burnt orange/amber nylon watch band, and the yellow bezel engravings. The season model also features a special emblem on the rear of the watch, created to evoke a renewed spirit as we transition from a challenging 2020 into a hopeful 2021.
