When it comes to mobile devices, Apple is doing big business – that’s widely known. But when it comes to jewellery, the tech firm still shines as the Apple Watch was named the most desirable luxury watch brand of 2016 ahead of Rolex.Garmin seemingly now wants a slice of Apple’s audience as it introduced the fenix Chronos, dubbed “the refined GPS timepiece for athletes and adventurers”. The range comprises three designs: (1) titanium with brushed titanium band at £1,100, (2) steel with brushed stainless steel band at £950, (3) steel with vintage leather band at £850. The titanium design is the flagship model and said to be strong yet lightweight, providing the wearer comfort. According to the firm, the fenix Chronos collection “bridges the gap between function and style,” while leveraging Garmin’s GPS navigation and sporting expertise. The timepieces are “designed to meet any activity demands”, featuring scratch-resistant lenses and outdoor readability in direct sunlight. For battery saver mode, users can expect up to 25 hours of life, and 13 hours for GPS mode.
