Garmin – Experience that Matters
fēnix Chronos incorporates the great experience of Garmin as the market leader and innovator in consumer GPS technology. Garmin stands for durable and reliable tools built for navigation and performance measurement. The ideal gear for deployment in the most demanding environments, Garmin has a strong reputation built up over several decades by leading athletes and outdoor professionals all over the world. Garmin has innovated its GPS usage in wearable devices for sports and in smart notification technology in wearables. People rely on Garmin products for their success and trust their lives on the technology on a daily basis in markets like aviation, marine, sport and outdoor. Its profound experience and desire for quality innovation allows Garmin to blend cutting edge performance sensor technology with traditional quality standards of the classic watch market to a meaningful and authentic modern tool-watch the fēnix Chronos.
Your partner for all the sports
With the help of GPS/GLONASS and additional sensors, fēnix Chronos can track and measure performance data during your sport activities such as time, distance, speed, average pace, ascent and descent etc. This information is used for better control during training and comprehensive analysis after a workout. To give you the chance to explore all kind of activities, fēnix Chronos supports a vast amount of different sports with dedicated profiles and features out of the box such as running, swimming, cycling, triathlon, swim-run (and other multi-sports), trail running, hiking, climbing, skiing, indoor training, rowing, SUP, cross-country skiing and more. In swim mode, the watch supports both indoor and open water swimming and tracks distance, strokes and even your stroke efficiency. 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. In Golf mode you’ll get yardage to the front, back and middle of the green, layups and doglegs for any single course out of more than 40,000 available courses that you can download for free from Garmin Connect.
Wrist-based Heart Rate
On your wrist, fēnix Chronos Elevate™ wrist heart rate technology1lets you conveniently monitor your heart rate without wearing a chest strap, this provides maximum flexibility for your training plan as you can go for full performance measurement at any time you want. At the same time it also provides 24/7 heart rate monitoring for recovery control and to better quantify the intensity of your activities throughout the day.
Advanced Fitness Metrics
For ambitious athletes, the fēnix Chronos supports additional performance tools that help to better understand running efficiency through running cadence and stride length. On base of VO2 max estimation it provides guidance on actual performance condition, the estimated finish time (for a 5k run, for example) and recommended recovery time after running and cycling workouts. The VO2 max estimator analyses data, including your running speed, beats per minute and heart rate variability to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute. Together with an optional heart rate chest strap, Chronos can provide even more advanced insight – you can gain full transparency on your running efficiency with enhanced Running Metrics. Advanced Physiological Metrics allow athletes to get the most out of their workouts. For example, by determining your personal lactate threshold to dial in the right training zones or evaluating your actual Stress Score to determine the right intensity for the next workout. fēnix Chronos can also pair with additional ANT+ sensors for further performance tracking like Vector™ for cycling power, cycling speed and cadence sensors as well as others. Be assured that with fēnix Chronos performance metrics you will get much more out of your tireless training.
Join the Great Athletes
Garmin Connect™ is the place to be, many athletes around the world use this sport community to plan, store, analyse and share their activities. Once your fēnix Chronos is paired to your smart phone the Garmin Connect Mobile App automatically uploads the data from your last activity. On Garmin Connect you can analyse your data to better understand your progress and share it with other athletes or even compete against friends during virtual competitions. From Garmin Connect you can share your activities with others through social media or invite them to follow you during your activities online – with the help of the LiveTrack™ function.
Safe Navigation in any Environment
fēnix Chronos provides comprehensive navigation and tracking to guide you on and off the beaten path using GPS/GLONASS plus ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) sensor capabilities. GPS technology allows you to determine your position and also to track position over time to record a track log and provide activity related data such as distance, speed and time. The recorded “bread crumb trail” gets used by an important safety feature, TracBack® which can help you navigate safely back to your starting point the same way you came. GPS also allows you to mark and navigate to locations, such as a checkpoint or a rescue shelter, the parking spot of your car or other important locations. The integrated 3-Axis Electronic Compass allows safe orientation even while standing still.
For many outdoor activities precise elevation information is crucial for mission success, therefore, fēnix Chronos comes with a high performance Barometric Altimeter. Usually a barometric altimeter requires regular calibration – fēnix Chronos offers an auto calibration function that uses GPS for automated elevation calibration on the go to ensure the elevation remains accurate. The barometer also constantly monitors changes in air pressure which allows you to monitor weather changes and can warn you of the risk of upcoming storms. For accurate ambient temperature reading, pair the watch with our optional wireless tempe™ temperature sensor.
Smart and Connected
fēnix Chronos is a valuable connected tool – it features smart notifications that let you receive alerts for emails, SMS, incoming calls and social media notifications to your wrist, whether you’re on the trail, on the golf course or simply away from your desk. The watch receives the alerts from a compatible smartphone2 and shows them on its screen – you no longer have to pull out your phone each time you get a message. Thanks to Connect IQ™ you can also personalise your fēnix Chronos with free downloads from our Connect IQ™ store. Customise your watch face, add data fields and get apps and widgets to experience your watch in many new ways.
Add power data to your training by downloading our Running Power app from the Connect IQ™ store onto your compatible watch. Developed by Garmin Labs, the Running Power app taps into metrics — such as pace, vertical oscillation, grade and even local wind conditions — to determine the amount of power you’re applying at the ground as you run. When you know how much power you’re expending from minute to minute and mile to mile, you’re better able to pace yourself, which can help keep you from tiring out too quickly. The best news? If you already own the right Garmin devices, adding power to your run is free. All you need is a fēnix®5/fēnix 5S/ fēnix 5X, fēnix Chronos, Forerunner® 935 and 1 of these 3 accessories: HRM-Run™ , HRM-Tri™ or the Running Dynamics Pod.

*The UltraTrac feature is a GPS setting that records track points and sensor data less frequently. Enabling the UltraTrac feature increases battery life but decreases the quality of recorded activities. You should use the UltraTrac feature for activities that demand longer battery life and for which frequent sensor data updates are less important.
