Long known for rugged and reliable watches, Casio has finally added fitness tracking to its lineup with the GBA-800. This watch pairs with a smartphone, and lets you set movement goal targets, age, and weight.
Then the Casio tracks movement, and based on intensity, estimates caloric burn and, via built-in accelerometer, counts steps as well. No, it’s not a heart-rate watch, but it’s a cool compromise between conventional timepiece and a “wearable”. Even better, it’s rechargeable, so the battery life is pretty considerable.
All that data’s bounced to an app on your phone, and, because it has Bluetooth, you also get a handy find-my-phone feature that’ll send a signal from wrist to ring an alarm on your phone. (Available spring 2018; $120, gshock.com)
