Kipchoge is one of the most famous runners in the world, the first person to ever dip under 2 hours for a marathon. The Kenyan has a staggering 17 major marathon victories to his name including two Olympic golds.
He’s known for his blazing speed in races and is set to compete again at the Berlin Marathon next week. The 37-year-old is also a renowned trainer and has been helping many of the most promising up and coming athletes develop into champions.
The Kenyan is an ambassador for the Coros brand and has been working with the company’s latest watch, the COROS Pace 2. COROS is a California-based sports technology brand that began by making bike helmets, but they soon realized that their advanced sport watches could be used by elite runners. The COROS Pace 2 is a great choice for those looking for a lightweight, stylish running watch that can track all of your workouts. This model is available in colors celebrating the Kenyan flag and features a silicone – as well as a nylon – strap.
Among the features offered by this smartwatch are a heart rate monitor, barometric altimeter, and a built-in compass. The Coros Pace 2 is a favorite of elite marathon and half marathon runners, including Molly Seidel who ran the fastest female time at this year’s Boston Marathon. It’s a highly-advanced piece of tech that can upload your workouts, help guide internal training and is lightweight at just 29 grams.
