Garmin fēnix Chronos is the Upscale Fitness Smartwatch

Garmin Fenix Chronos Smartwatch

Garmin announced fēnix Chronos, a premium version of its popular multisport smarwatch, available in three luxurious styles. Made with premium jeweler’s grade materials, fēnix Chronos is the first Garmin watch to combine a durable and fashionable metal housing with the latest adventure, fitness training, activity tracking and smartwatch technology. With three versions available: titanium with brushed titanium band; steel with brushed stainless steel band; and steel with vintage leather band, there is fēnix Chronos watch to suit every style and every adventure.

All versions of fēnix Chronos have a high-strength and scratch-resistant sapphire lens and a 1.2-inch Chroma Display with LED backlighting for great visibility in all conditions, even in direct sunlight. These watches also have a 10ATM (100m) water rating 2, and are designed to withstand the elements without fear of damage.

“High-end design meets top-tier performance with fēnix Chronos,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “With luxurious materials and trusted Garmin multisport technology, fēnix Chronos is a necessary timepiece for anyone who wants to remain stylish through all of life’s adventures – whether its hiking through mountains, training for a race, or heading to a formal event.”

With Connect IQ compatibility and wireless connectivity features, fēnix Chronos is a full-fledged smartwatch that can be totally customized to each user. Through the Connect IQ store in the Garmin Connect mobile app, users can download any of the free apps, widgets, watch faces and data fields to suit their individual needs. Users can even create custom watch faces using their own photos with the new FaceIt app. Additionally, users can pair their fēnix Chronos with a compatible phone to receive incoming call, text, email and other alerts right on their watch. Fēnix Chronos supports automatic uploads to Garmin Connect mobile, so users can easily and wirelessly upload all their data, start a LiveTrack session or share an activity on social media.

Following in the footsteps of the popular fēnix 3 line, fēnix Chronos boasts a full multisport and navigational toolset. The omni-directional EXO antenna with GPS and GLONASS satellite reception supports better reception in challenging environments than with GPS alone, and the ABC sensors (altimeter, barometer, compass) allow users to keep their bearings while out in the field. Activity profiles include run, bike, lap swim, open water, SUP, row, golf and more.

The fēnix Chronos is also equipped with daily activity tracking 3 technology, so users can monitor the number of steps taken, calories burned, stairs climbed, and quality of rest at night with the sleep mode. With the addition of Garmin Elevate wrist heart rate technology, fēnix Chronos users have the freedom to monitor heart rate 24/7 at the wrist. Users can easily record heart rate data and intensity minutes without worrying about a chest strap. For the data-hungry user, Chronos can also be paired with the HRM-Run (sold separately) to collect advanced running dynamics.

With up to 25 hours of battery life in UltraTrac battery saver mode, fēnix Chronos can get up to 13 hours in GPS mode and one week in smart watch mode (depending on settings).

With a refined and luxurious design, fēnix Chronos can seamlessly transition from a day on the trail or intense training session to a dressy event. The premium titanium version features a unique brushed titanium band with individually brushed forged titanium links and black elastomer inner links making it strong yet extremely lightweight and comfortable on the wrist. The steel version has solid 316L stainless steel links carefully assembled and hand-brushed to ensure a smooth, consistent texture. The steel version is also available with a vintage-style leather band, crafted with genuine leather. The stylish leather band has hand-sewn contrast stitching and a nubuck inner lining that combines classic good looks with lasting durability and comfort. Additionally, each fēnix Chronos watch comes with an interchangeable silicone sport band, which can be easily interchanged.
