Garmin Fenix Chronos | Sophistication Meets Brutal Performance


Garmin has long been in the market bringing us brilliant GPS tracking enabled smartwatches and their latest, the Garmin Fenix Chronos, is their upgraded premium version of the Garmin Fenix 3.

The Fenix Chronos is meticulously crafted from jeweler’s grade materials and is the first Garmin watch to combine a durable metal housing with all of its features.
