Stay connected in style with Garmin fenix Chronos Multi-Sport GPS Watch. The Chronos features a durable steel housing, scratch-resistant sapphire lens, and elegant leather band. Beyond its elegant exterior, this watch was designed with multi-sport athletes and outdoor enthusiasts in mind. It records data useful to runners, cyclists, swimmers, climbers, hikers, skiers, paddlers, and even provides wrist-based heart rate data. The Chronos also logs your location using a stainless steel EXO antenna that supports both GPS and GLONASS for enhanced accuracy.

The fenix Chronos connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth, allowing it to transfer its stored data to the phone and to receive notifications, text messages, and emails while you're on the go. In addition to its navigation and multi-sport capabilities, the Chronos also functions as an everyday activity tracker, silently logging your steps and encouraging you to get moving after an extended period of inactivity. When it's time to rest after a long day of exercise, your fenix Chronos will monitor your sleep and record periods of restful sleep or movement.

Your fenix Chronos uses an EXO antenna, unobtrusively integrated into the bezel, to receive signals from GPS and GLONASS satellites. It uses this data to create a track log, using a "breadcrumb trail" system of track points and user-entered locations and checkpoints so you can always find your way.
Altimeter, Barometer, and Compass
The fenix Chronos has built-in altimeter, barometer, and compass (ABC) sensors to provide real-time information while out and about. The 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 or not you're in motion. Calibration is taken care of automatically via GPS, and the watch sets the time based on location.

Running and Cycling

VO2 Max Estimator
When used with an optional heart rate monitor, the fenix Chronos uses your speed, heart beats per minute, and heart rate variability to calculate the maximum approximate volume of oxygen you can consume per minute. A recovery advisor with a recovery timer and recovery check let you train safely and a race predictor estimates your ideal finish time based on your current VO2 max number.
Running Dynamics
When used with the optional Garmin HRM-Run monitor, the fenix Chronos records your cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time so you can safely increase your running economy.
Cycling Features
When used with the optional Vector cycle power meter, the fenix Chronos records your pedaling power, speed, and cadence. It also stores multiple bicycle profiles.

Interval training (set up exercise and rest intervals)
Virtual Partner (train against a digital person)
Virtual Racer (compete against other activities)

Additional Sport Modes

Swimming Mode
Simply input the size of the pool you're swimming in and jump in; your fenix Chronos will track your distance, pace, stroke type, stroke count, and more. It can also calculate your open-water swim distance when swimming in lakes and oceans.
Ski/Snowboard Mode
This mode records and displays your speed, distance, and more while on the slopes. An automatic run counter and lift line auto-pause let you keep track of your entire day.


Your fenix Chronos uses the ConnectIQ platform for specialized software so you can personalize your watch with customized apps, widgets, data fields and unique watch faces.
With BaseCamp, you can trace your planned route and view elevation changes, survey the terrain in 2D or 3D, geotag your photos, and more.
Connect 2.0
Maximize your fenix 3's potential with Garmin Connect 2.0, which lets you search and create courses where you can analyze and live track your progress, take advantage of advanced workouts and step-by-step guidance, and connect with friends, family, and pros to compare and compete.

Other Features

    Garmin 010-01957-00 reviews

    fenix Chronos Multi-Sport GPS Watch (Steel Case with Leather Band) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome watch After doing a lot of homework on this watch, I decided to order and I'm very satisfied with my purchase. Prior to buying, I noticed that there was a lot of misinformation about the model on many sites that claimed it was a Fenix 3 with a stainless steel case and leather band. I've found that is not accurate, in fact this watch has a faster processor, better screen, better HRM, and supports the newest version of ConnectIQ apps. I've used it for daily activity tracking as well as tracking running and rowing activities. So far the accuracy seems quite good for everything that I've done with it. The watch bands are extremely easy to swap making it practical to wear the watch in a professional work environment and continue to wear it during more strenuous workouts. Even though the battery size was reduced from the Fenix3, it charges extremely fast and has not been an issue whatsoever. Bottom line, this is a fairly expensive watch, but for the upgrade over the Fenix3, I'm quite pleased with the purchase.
