Coros Pace 3 – 20-25% price rises – Are They Justified?
The new Coros Pace 3 (review) is launched today and offers improved hardware over its predecessor. But has the company lost its dominance of the ‘value’ end of the pricing with inflation-busting 20-25% price hikes?
The old Pace 2 price of £180 seems like a bargain as it is well below the psychological £200 level and it will probably get cheaper still in upcoming Black Friday sales.
Pace 3 still has many benefits but its lack of music Spotify streaming support, lack of onboard maps (or dwMaps), and lack of a third-party app store cast some doubts in my mind when compared to Garmin FR55/(65)/255/265. And its lack of AMOLED screen casts further doubts when we look at the only slightly more expensive Polar Ignite 3. It’s only a running (sport) watch after all, it’s not as if you could wear it to more formal occasions like the Suunto 5 Peak.
Garmin Forerunner 255 is on sale at £229 and Forerunner 255 at £120. They seem like better buys to me at those prices.
What do you think?
Is the new Coros Pace 3 overpriced or just about right?? https://t.co/XeqcPpo181
