Pinterest WhatsApp

The new Garmin Xero C1 Pro is a pocket-sized chronograph that accurately measures projectile velocities from 100 to 5,000 feet per second. The Xero C1 Pro also features a button-operated design and an intuitive user interface. Along with the chronograph itself, the new ShotView smartphone app organizes the velocity data and makes it easily accessible directly on the user’s phone.

“With the Xero C1 Pro, Garmin is proud to introduce a new benchmark for chronograph technology. Combining performance and reliability into a pocket-sized package, this highly adaptable device represents the innovation and accuracy that has become synonymous with Garmin engineering. Just shoot and immediately receive speed data and statistics for that string of shots. Simply put, gone are the days of cumbersome, fussy chronograph setups and missed shots.” – Dan Bartel, Garmin Vice President of Global Consumer Sales

In addition to measuring the speed of a bullet, the Xero C1 Pro can capture velocity data for arrows, crossbow bolts, shotgun slugs, paintballs and airsoft devices. During a shooting session, Xero C1 Pro will display the speed of the projectile and shot count, average speed, as well as standard deviation and extreme spread after each shot. Users can even customize the display to show Power Factor and Kinetic Energy if the projectile grain weight is entered.

At just 3 inches x 2.8 inches x 1.4 inches in size, the Xero C1 Pro is smaller than a deck of cards and weighs just over 3.5 ounces. Suitable for use in the field or at the range, it has an IPX71 water-resistant rating and a sunlight-readable, high-contrast display. In addition to this, thanks to a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, users can get data for up to 2,000 shots on a single charge.

After a shooting session is complete, the Xero C1 Pro will automatically sync with the new ShotView smartphone app, which provides shot data in organized data fields for rapid interpretation. The shot data recorded includes speed, deviation, extreme spread, kinetic energy and more. Users can mark shots as clean or cold bore as well as exclude outliers from session calculations. In addition, users can create custom names for each session and add detailed notes for both specific shots and the entire session.

MSRP for the Xero C1 Pro is $599.99, and to learn more about this new chronograph or other products from Garmin, please visit garmin.com.
