Although smartwatches still struggle to become popular in some markets, the luxury niche seems to fare well, especially since there are not too many competing for a slice of it at this time. Garmin, for example, did not release any luxury smart wearable until now, but the brand-new Fenix Chronos takes care of the problem.

Garmin Fenix Chronos packs all the usual features of a standard GPS-enabled fitness tracking device - altimeter, barometer, compass, 10 ATM water rating, GPS with GLONASS, heart rate monitoring, as well as support for the Garmin Connect mobile app. This watch uses "a high-strength and scratch-resistant sapphire lens and a 1.2-inch Chroma Display™ with LED backlighting for great visibility in all conditions, even in direct sunlight." 

The Fenix Chronos has a battery life of up to 25 hours in UltraTrac battery saving mode, 13 hours in GPS mode, and no less than one week in smartwatch mode. The variants available include two steel versions (one with a leather band, priced at $899.99 USD, and one with a stainless steel band, priced at $999.99 USD) and the top-of-the-line Fenix Chronos titanium with titanium band, which retails for $1,499.99 USD.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
