Garmin has just announced the Fenix Chronos, an elegant smartwatch with all the features of their standard GPS exercise watches, with a case and aesthetic that would be at home in a fine watch shop.

It costs $1,499.99 for the beautiful titanium model – considerably more than your average smartwatch.

For the outdoor buff you’ve got an altimeter, barometer, and compass as well as a system that can get you back to your starting point if you’re lost. You can connect it to your phone, as well, and get weather data and notifications.

Finally it also supports multiple sports but for runners you have:

  • Vertical oscillation and ratio — the degree of ‘bounce’ in your running motion and the benefit ratio to stride length
  • Ground contact and balance — shows how much time, in the running motion, your foot is on the ground rather than in flight and lets you check your running symmetry
  • Cadence — number of steps per minute
  • Stride length — determines a responsive current pace
