If you own a Coros Vertix 2 or Pace 2 watch, you're about to get a major upgrade completely free. Coros has announced a new software update that will add a whole new workout tracking mode, optimizations for smart trainers for indoor cycling, and the ability to control Insta360 GO 2 action cameras.

The new update's standout feature is a new jump rope mode, which tracks not only workout time and heart rate, but also logs your jumps so there's no need to keep track manually. At the end of your workout, you'll be able to see your jump (rep) count, average speed in reps per minute, training load, calories burned, time spent in heart rate zones, and training effect (aerobic and anaerobic).

For cyclists, the update adds optimization for smart trainers, including the Wahoo Kickr, Wahoo Kickr Core, and  Tacx Neo 2T among others. When connected, your watch will be able to receive metrics like speed, power, and cadence directly from the trainer.

Once you've received the software update, you'll also see a new time to sunrise/sunset field (much like those found on the best Garmin watches), and if you own an Insta360 GO 2 camera, you'll be able to control it directly from your wrist. You can take still photos with a tap, and start and stop video recording remotely.

The software update is available and rolling out right now.
