Garmin Fenix Chronos: Garmin has launched its first luxury smartwatch, the Fenix Chronos. It comes in three models and features an elegant design. The smartwatches are a collection of high-quality material GPS sports watches. Part of the Fenix 3 series, the wearables are essentially more or less like the previous Fenix 3, only with shiny new clothing.
The three Garmin Fenix Chronos models include Fenix Chronos Titanium, Fenix Chronos Steel, and Fenix Chronos Steel with leather strap. The titanium variant sports a brushed titanium case with forged titanium links and buttons, the steel one features a brushed stainless steel case, and 316L stainless steel links while the leather variant is the same stainless steel casing, but with a ‘Vintage’ Leather Band.
The new Fenix Chronos range has a pretty impressive list of spec and features. The smartwatch offers 13 hours of battery backup and on enabling the UltraTrac mode, the battery life extends to 25 hours. One can use the smartwatches anywhere and it offers good features for hikers. Chronos sports GPS and GLONASS, 3-axis compass, omnidirectional EXO antenna, altimeter and barometer. There’s an optical heart rate sensor built into the back of the watch, which is packed with sensors, giving you GPS tracking, a barometer, altimeter and compass, allowing you to track your activities anywhere.

Fenix Chronos Titanium’s housing, bezel, and buttons are forged with titanium. The stainless steel variant sports housing and band in an interwoven link pattern of the smartwatch while the leather one is made of genuine Italian leather band. It’s worth noting that the titanium and steel variant of Fenix Chronos looks pretty similar and the best way to tell which is which, is to remember that the titanium has the long links, versus the steel that has that interwoven pattern.
