Garmin today announced the Xero C1 Pro, a pocket-sized chronograph that accurately measures projectile velocities from 100 to 5,000 feet per second. Remarkably fast and simple to set up, Xero C1 Pro features a button-operated design and intuitive user interface. Thanks to the new ShotView smartphone app, comprehensive velocity data is organized and easily accessible directly from the user’s phone.
“With the Xero C1 Pro, Garmin is proud to introduce a new benchmark for chronograph technology,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin Vice President of Global Consumer Sales. “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.”
Accuracy Through Innovation
In addition to bullets, Xero C1 Pro can capture velocity data for arrows, crossbow bolts, shotgun slugs, and paintballs – as well as 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.
Once the session is complete, the unit will provide an on-screen Session Summary including the minimum, maximum, and average speed of the shots, as well as extreme spread and standard deviation. Users can even customize the display to show Power Factor and Kinetic Energy when projectile grain weight is entered.
Compact and Easy to Use
Smaller than a deck of cards (3 x 2.8 x 1.4 inches) and weighing just over 100 grams, the chronograph is small enough to slip into the pocket of a range bag. Xero C1 Pro is range-ready, rain or shine, due to its button-operated design, IPX71 water-resistant rating, and sunlight-readable, high-contrast display. And, thanks to a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, users can get data for up to 2,000 shots on a single charge.
Dedicated ShotView App
After a shooting session is complete, the device will automatically sync with the new ShotView app. This easy-to-use app provides shot data in organized data fields for rapid interpretation. Shot data includes speed, deviation, extreme spread, kinetic energy and more. Users can mark shots as clean/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.
Users can set their sights on a Xero C1 Pro chronograph now for a suggested retail price of $599.99. To learn more, visit garmin.com/outdoor.
