Why I'm Not Reviewing the COROS VERTIX 2 (yet)

The new COROS VERTIX 2 is an exciting watch for hikers - the multi-band GNSS receiver is really exciting, as is the long battery life. But the shortcomings in maps and navigation, which I think can be addressed by future firmware updates, make it a bit of a non-starter for me as a hiking watch.

Hi, I'm Cris Hazzard, aka Hiking Guy, a professional outdoors guide, hiking expert, and author based in Southern California. I created this website to share all the great hikes I do with everyone else out there. This site is different because it gives detailed directions that even the beginning hiker can follow. I also share what hiking gear works and doesn't so you don't waste money. I don't do sponsored or promoted content; I share only the gear recommendations, hikes, and tips that I would with my family and friends. If you like the website and YouTube channel, please support these free guides (I couldn't do it without folks like you!).
