Spongicle. The Garmin Fenix Chronos is a premium multisport
watch with a metal body and sapphire lens. It uses the Elevate wrist heart rate technology
which won’t require a chest strap to measure your heart rate. The watch features an always on 1.2-inch LCD
screen using color Garmin Chroma Display. The Fenix Chronos has a several sensors some
of which are the GPS, GLONASS satellite reception and barometric altimeter with a 3-axis compass. The watch will also count your steps and monitor
your sleep. You can connect your watch to your phone to

varies quite a bit before requiring a charge. The three power management options are, the
Smartwatch Mode will allow you to run your watch for 8 days before a charge, the GPS
mode will give you 13 hours and the UltraTrac Battery Saver Mode will give you 25 hours. One of the key differences with the Fenix
Chronos is that it is made from jewellery grade materials with the EXO omni-directional
GPS and GLONASS antenna inside the bezel. There are three variations of the Garmin Fenix
Chronos. The steel vintage leather band, steel with
brushed stainless-steel band and the premium titanium with brushed titanium hybrid band. Evidentially the coolest variation is also
the most expensive. Although the fenix Chronos watch has a luxury
watch look, it includes outdoor and training feature sets for when you exercise. This is perhaps why the Sapphire lens was
chosen, to prevent or reduce scratches. One of the features is that it will estimate
your VO2 max by taking a look at your running speed, beats per minute and heart rate variability. It will then estimate the maximum volume of
oxygen you can consume per minute. You can track the improvements as you progress
with your health. The other features are Recovery Advisor which
has a recovery timer, Recovery Check plus a Race Predictor that estimates your ideal
finish time based on your current VO2 max number. You can gain access to more data if you use
a chest heart rate monitor such as the HRM-Run, HRM-Tri or HRM-Swim. You will gain the following data: •Vertical oscillation and ratio which is
the degree of bounce in your running motion and the benefit ratio to stride length •Ground contact and balance – shows how
much time your foot is planted on the ground during running instead of flight and lets
you check your running symmetry. • Cadence – the number of steps per minute. • Stride length – determines a responsive
current pace. The physiological metrics will measure your
heart rate to provide you with: • Stress score – Fenix Chronos measures
your heart rate while you stand still for 3 minutes to provide you with an estimated
stress level. The stress level scale is from 1 to 100. Lower scores indicate lower stress levels. • Performance condition – after you have
completed a run for 6 to 20 minutes, fenix Chronos will compare your real-time condition
to your average fitness levels. • Lactate threshold – fenix Chronos will
estimate your muscles rapid fatigue by analysing your pace and heart rate. Some training modes are Swimming, Ski/Boarding,
Rowing, Golf and paddle sports. If you were to use the Swim Mode which uses
the Garmin Swim technology, you simply enter the size of the pool you’re in and begin
swimming. Fenix Chronos will track your distance, pace,
stroke count and more. The Ski/boarding mode puts speed, distance,
vertical drop and an automatic run counter which has auto pause for the lift line and
more. 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 also connect your fenix Chronos to
other Garmin devices such as the VIRB action cameras and/or play music from your phone. You can use the Connect IQ store to download
widgets, apps and customize your watch faces along with data fields. Garmin also provide access to their social
media Garmin Connect online fitness community to keep track of your progress and share your
success. Some of the interesting features of navigation
using its sensors is that it can help you navigate back to your starting point the same
way you came using the TracBack feature. The built-in sensors also provide information
on heading, elevation and weather changes. 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. fenix Chronos auto-calibrates its altimeter,
barometer and compass sensors using its GPS receiver and also auto sets the time based
on location. For an accurate temperature reading, pair
it with Garmin’s tempe external temperature sensor. Each variation of the fenix Chronos watch
includes an extra black sport band, USB charger and documentation. If you choose
