I’ve always liked the G-Shock series from Casio (I’m wearing one right now). This one looks really nice -made of metal instead of resin- but appears it will be out of my price range at the moment. Here are details from Casio’s G-Shock site:

Casio has about a dozen models in this Black Label series of their Edifice line. I liked this one a lot; the price is alright, too.

Casio Japan is planning [JP] to roll out the G-SHOCK GB-6900 on March 16 next year, a wristwatch that connects to certain smartphones via Bluetooth LE (LE=low-energy, a standard that’s baked into Bluetooth 4.0). The device will be compatible with the Medias LTE N-04D Android phone from NEC (to be released next year) and NEC’s Medias PP N-01D.

I like Casio watches in general. They’re usually pretty reasonably priced, solid and dependable. At $480, this one’s probably at the upper end of my affordability range. In addition to telling time, it has sensors that measure altitude, barometric pressure, temperature, and directions. It’s waterproof to 100 meters (like most people that buy one will ever go that deep), and it receives time accuracy signals from those atomic clocks. Though the one in the feature image isn’t available until May, you can take a look at other Casio Watches at Amazon.

That name is a mouthful. Yeah, I just got a new G-Shock, but this one’s cool, too. The Casio Men’s GW3000B-1ACR G-Shock Solar Power Black With Orange Dial Watch is available at Amazon.
