Garmin adds luxury to multisport training with the Fenix Chronos high end watch
"High-end design meets top-tier performance with Fenix Chronos"
Garmin announce Fenix Chronos, a premium version of its popular multisport watch, available in three luxurious styles.
Fenix 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 Fenix Chronos watch to suit every style and every adventure.
“High-end design meets top-tier performance with nix Chronos,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “With luxurious materials and trusted Garmin multisport technology, Fenix Chronos is a necessary timepiece for anyone who wants to remain stylish through all of life’s adventures – whether it's hiking through mountains, training for a race, or heading to a formal event.”
The Fenix Chronos design 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 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.
Additionally, each Fenix Chronos watch comes with an interchangeable silicone sport band, which can be easily interchanged.
All versions of Fenix 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, and are designed to withstand the elements without fear of damage.
With Connect IQ compatibility and wireless connectivity features, Fenix Chronos is a full-fledged smartwatch that can be totally customised 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.
Fenix 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 Fenix 3 line, Fenix Chronos boasts a full multisport and navigational toolset. Activity profiles include run, bike, lap swim, open water, SUP, row, golf and more.
The Chronos is also equipped with daily activity tracking 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, 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.
Fenix Chronos is available now in the US from $999.99 (£1200); and will be released in the UK shortly.
