Garmin Fenix Chronos

Garmin, the U.S-based technology firm known for its fitness gadgets and smart products has launched a new premium smartwatch dubbed Fenix Chronos. To segregate it from the rest in the market, Garmin is offering the new watch in three luxury styles, Fenix Chronos Titanium with brushed titanium band, Fenix Chronos Steel with stainless steel band, and Fenix Chronos Steel with vintage leather band. All the three has same features and same functions besides the difference in their look and design.

As can be expected from a smartwatch, the device can track daily fitness activities such as walk, run, step, sleep and calories burned, but besides these it can also monitors and records outdoor recreational activities such as lap swim, bike, golf, open water, SUP, row, and lots more, thanks to built-in Global Positioning System (GPS) and GLONASS satellite reception onboard. The ABC (Altimeter, Barometer, and Compass) sensors included also helps the watch to archive better aim during these activities. Omni-directional EXO antenna included with the watch enhances signal strength of the GPS, enabling better reception in challenging environment.

Apart from its stylish highly-durable bands, another luxury part of the watch is the display protective layer. The 1.2-inch Chroma LED-backlit display that comes with the Fenix Chronos is protected by a high-strength scratch-resistant Sapphire glass. The display itself is highly visible in direct sunlight and offers great visibility in all conditions as claimed by the firm. The watch face can be changed via the company's Connect IQ platform and users can even add widgets and download free apps from the platform. With Garmin Faceit app, users can also build custom watch faces using their photos.

The Fenix Chronos comes with a heart rate sensor thar makes use of Garmin Elevate™ wrist heart rate technology to monitor wearers heart rate right at the wrist. When paired with a compatible smartphone , the smartwatch can alert users of incoming calls, text messages, emails, calendar and other notifications.

To the rugged part, the Fenix Chronos can survive in up to 100 meters (10ATM) deep of water and can withstand the "elements" without fear of damage. What Garmin meant by "elements" here is not revealed but we expect this to includes drop and other extreme nature crisis such as high temperature, pressure e.t.c. Battery included can deliver up to 25 hours of use in UltraTrac battery saver mode; up to 13 hours in GPS mode, and up to one week in smart watch mode.

The Fenix Chronos Titanium is available at a price of $1,499.99; the Fenix Chronos steel with stainless steel band at $999.99, while Fenix Chronos steel with vintage leather band is priced at $899.99.
