If you own one of the following COROS watches, you have the option to connect your COROS account with your komoot account. With this integration you can navigate your komoot Tours on your COROS Watch and sync them back to komoot.

Note: Tours can only be transferred to COROS if the region, in which the Tour starts, is unlocked in komoot. 

How to set up the connection

Before setting up the connection, you need a komoot as well as a COROS account. You also need to make sure that you are logged in with your COROS account on your COROS watch. Follow this steps to set up the connection:

  1. Log in to your COROS app
  2. Click on Profile, on the bottom menu, second icon from right
  3. Select Settings
  4. Choose 3rd Party Apps
  5. Click on komoot
  6. Tap on Connect Now and enter your komoot account credentials
  7. Wait for the authentication process to complete

Now the connection is established.

Transferring Tours between komoot and COROS

After setting up the connection, all planned komoot Tours are transferred to the COROS app on the smartphone, provided that the phone is connected to the WLAN. In the COROS app you can find the Tours in Profile > Navigation Routes Library. From here you can use them to navigate on the watch as described below.

All completed Tours on the watch, which were created after connecting your accounts, are automatically transferred back to komoot as soon as an internet connection is established.

Note: The routes from native COROS workouts will not be synced from Komoot to the COROS Navigation Route Library.
