I still think the Huawei smart watch is the best looking Android watch but the Casio looks ok if not a little 80's

 $500 USD apparently.  Somewhat out of my budget.  [Actually, I don't have a budget....]

Looks great, although it looks like it is "water resistant" rather than "waterproof"

 

I like Casio watches but have had three fail over the last six years through water ingress, and these are all "100m" water resist models.  Not so bad when it's a $50 watch, but not good when it's $500.  I'd only buy this from NZ retailer with CGA

When I think Casio, I think G-Shock.

 

I've had a couple of g-shock 200M models which both lasted easily for 10+ years, while literally having everything you can imagine thrown at them and never needing a single battery change. My current model, which I only got because I lost the previous one, has been going strong for something like 12 years and, other than a piece of the "frame"  around the watch face breaking relatively recently off due to a pretty extreme bash, shows no signs of slowing down. The previous one lasted for about the same before I lost it.  They're not the prettiest watches but my good they are tough.  

 

If this is engineered even half as well as the g-shocks I'm interested... but yeah that price is possibly a dealbreaker, and only 50M water resistant.  I also wonder how accurate the speed\distance measurements will be without GPS?
