Casio’s G-Shock timepieces are legendary for their unique combination of extreme durability and comprehensive functionality. And now their ranks have gotten even more enticing, especially for fitness-focused folks, thanks to the addition of the new Bluetooth-connected GBD-800 watch.

Just as bulletproof as ever, this ultra-tough timepiece is a member of G-Shock’s Power Trainer series — meaning it’s got everything we’ve come to expect from their rugged watches, plus some workout-enhancing extras. That includes compatibility with the G-Shock Connected app — which gives you access to fitness-tracking metrics (like a calorie counter), a Multi-Timer, memory for up to 200 lap records, and so much more. There’s even a built-in accelerometer that turns itself on to track your steps when you start moving and goes into standby mode when you’re not. Pair that with over 200 meters of water resistance, World Time for 300 cities, legendary shock-resistance, automatic LED lighting, a super-durable resin case, and it’s abundantly clear that this watch is more than worth the $99 it costs.
