Using a smartwatch to track your workouts is an excellent way to stay on top of your fitness goals. But if you want to listen to music, most have to be tethered to your phone – which is a huge inconvenience. Garmin appears to agree with that sentiment, as they’ve just released the music-playing version of their Forerunner 645 GPS smartwatch.

A gorgeous piece of tech, this GPS watch has everything you need in it to stay connected and tracking your workouts – including sensors that map out your foot contact time, stride length, heart rate, as well as basics like time elapsed and distance traveled. But this one also has the added benefit of having onboard storage that can fit up to 500 downloaded songs and play them through your headphones without the requiring a virtual tether to your smartphone. The stainless steel case is also water-resistant to 5ATM, has a suite of other smartwatch functions (altimeter, thermometer, accelerator, & compass), and can even digitally store a credit card for on-the-go purchases. It can be yours for $450.

Purchase: $450
