Garmin Fenix Chronos is a luxury smartwatch that integrates a durable and fashionable metal housing with the latest adventure, fitness training, activity tracking and smartwatch 1 technology. Made with premium jeweler’s grade materials, the smartwatch is available in three versions: titanium with brushed titanium band; steel with brushed stainless steel band; and steel with vintage leather band.
Comfortably sitting on the wrist, the premium titanium version ($1,499.99) of Garmin Fenix Chronos comes with a brushed titanium band with individually brushed forged titanium links and black elastomer inner links making it strong yet extremely lightweight. The steel version ($999.99) features solid 316L stainless steel links assembled and hand-brushed to ensure a smooth, consistent texture. The steel model boasts a vintage-style leather band ($899.99), that features hand-sewn contrast stitching and a nubuck inner lining. Furthermore, every model of the Fenix Chronos watch comes with an interchangeable silicone sport band.
All versions of the Chronos smartwatch feature 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. With up to 25 hours of battery life in UltraTrac battery saver mode, the watch can get up to 13 hours in GPS mode and one week in smart watch mode.
Thanks to its Connect IQ compatibility and wireless connectivity features, Garmin Fenix Chronos full-fledged smartwatch can be customized to each user. The Connect IQ store in the Garmin Connect mobile app allows the users to download any of the free apps, widgets, watch faces and data fields to suit their individual needs. It’s also possible to pair the new Garmin smartwatch with a compatible phone to receive incoming call, text, email and other alerts right on their watch. It’s 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.
