Introducing the fenix Chronos watches

The Refined Timepiece for the Adventurer and Athlete

Top-tier performance meets sophisticated design in a highly evolved timepiece that fits your style anywhere, anytime. Crafted of premium jeweller's grade materials, fēnix Chronos is the first Garmin watch to combine a durable metal housing (containing an EXO™ omni-directional GPS and GLONASS antenna in the bezel) with the latest outdoor navigation and fitness training features. These features include Elevate wrist heart rate technology, daily activity tracking, smart notifications, activity profiles and more.


Elegant Style Meets Robust Performance

The fēnix Chronos comes in 3 distinctive styles: steel with vintage leather band, steel with brushed stainless steel band and titanium with brushed titanium hybrid band. Each watch design features advanced GPS and GLONASS satellite reception, smart capabilities, rich materials and styling plus outdoor/training feature sets that set them apart from other luxury watches on the market. Chronos watches feature a sapphire lens, offering superior hardness and scratch resistance plus the bright, extra-crisp, full-color Garmin Chroma Display features LED backlighting for great visibility in all lighting conditions. Get up to 1 week battery life in smartwatch mode (dependant on settings), 25 hours in UltraTrac™ mode and 13 hours in GPS mode. You can even customize your smartwatch with watch faces, data fields and downloadable widgets and apps through the Garmin Connect IQ™ store. The Chronos is also water-rated/waterproof up to 100 meters.


Wrist-based Heart Rate, No Strap required

Remove the need for a separate wrist strap with the Chronos’ Elevate wrist heart rate technology, letting you monitor your heart rate, count your steps and monitor sleep – providing you with information such as calories burned and quantifies the intensity of your fitness activities.


Receive Smart Notification and Stay Connected with Garmin Connect™

With the Chronos smartwatch you can receive smart notifications – letting you read emails, texts and alerts right on your display – whether you’re on the trail, on the golf course of simply away from your desk. Pair your watch with a compatible smartphone wirelessly and it will let you know you’ve got a message by displaying the text on its own screen whenever you’re ready to read it.

Garmin Connect™ is a free online fitness community, giving you access to features such as automatic uploads, live tracking and social media sharing through the Garmin Connect and Garmin Connect™ Mobile applications.


Advanced Fitness Metrics

Packed with sophisticated training features, the Chronos has all you need to help monitor your form and fitness. The VO2 max estimator crunches data, including your running speed, beats per minute and heart rate variability, to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute. Track changes to see your fitness gains and compare with your peers. It also comes with other features such as a recovery advisor that comes with a recovery timer and recovery check plus a race predictor – this estimates your ideal finish time based on your current VO2 max number.


Advanced Running Dynamics and Physiological Metrics

Go further with your running data and tap into extended physiological metrics and advanced running dynamics. When used with a chest heart rate monitor (like HRM-Run, HRM-Tri or HRM-Swim), the Chronos reports the following data

  • Vertical oscillation and ratio – the degree of ‘bounce’ in your running motion and the benefit ratio to stride length
  • Ground contact and balance — shows how much time, in the running motion, your foot is on the ground rather than in flight and lets you check your running symmetry
  • Cadence — number of steps per minute
  • Stride length — determines a responsive current pace

Physiological metrics measure your heart rate to provide:

  • Stress score: fēnix Chronos measures your heart rate variability while standing still, for 3 minutes, to provide you with an estimated stress level. The scale of this is 1 to 100; low scores indicate lower stress levels.
  • Performance condition: After running for 6-20 minutes, fēnix Chronos compares your real-time condition to your average fitness levels.
  • Lactate threshold: Through analysis of your pace and heart rate, fēnix Chronos estimates the point where your muscles start to rapidly fatigue.

Feature Sets for Multiple Sports and Activities

Special features sets are available to help with swim training, skiing, golfing and paddle sports, including stand-up paddle boarding and rowing – while also taking features from the Garmin Swim watch, letting you track your distance, pace, stroke count and more. Just enter the size of the pool you’re swimming in and begin your workout. Ski/Board mode puts speed, distance, vertical drop and an automatic run counter (with Auto Pause for the lift line) and more at your fingertips. The feature set for paddle sports includes stroke count, stroke rate and even distance per stroke. Golf mode gives you yardage to the front, back and middle of the green for any single course you’ve downloaded from Garmin Connect. You can even use your fēnix Chronos as a glove-friendly remote for wireless control of VIRB® action cameras and/or music from your phone.

GPS with ABC Sensors and TracBack® Functionality

fēnix Chronos provides comprehensive navigation and tracking to help guide you on and off the beaten path using GPS plus ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) sensor capabilities. Find the way back to your starting point with the TracBack® feature and keep track of heading, elevation and weather changes with its built-in sensors.

As you move, a “bread crumb trail” is created in the GPS track log, allowing you to mark locations such as a start/finish line, course checkpoint or a campsite, vehicle or other point of interest. You can create and follow courses as well.

Altimeter, Barometer and Compass

Stay up to date with real-time situational information with the equipped ABC sensors. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while the barometer can be used to predict weather changes by showing short-term trends in air pressure. The 3-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing, whether you’re moving or not.

fēnix Chronos auto-calibrates its ABC sensors using its GPS receiver and also auto sets the time based on location. For an accurate temperature reading, pair it with our tempe™ external temperature sensor.

    Love this device - simple to use but so many features

    A great watch that you dont need to remove whether you are exercising or heading into a meeting at work. Love the features and the insights that the watch offers. Really insightful when connected to Garmin Connect and My Fitness Pal. The leather band very easily interchanges with the sports strap for when you have a more formal work occasion to attend.

    Pros: Easy to use, nice looking
    Cons: Battery life is not bad - would be great to have it last a little longer
