This super-chunky Casio G-Shock might be the toughest smartwatch ever made

Normally, when you think of a smartwatch, you imagine something sleek-looking like the Apple Watch. Casio, however, is going in a completely different direction with its new rugged-looking Rangeman G-Shock wearable.

There will be two models at launch: the Rangeman GPR-H1000-1 and the GPR-H1000-9. They’re both made from a “bio-based resin” with intricately placed metal guards around the watch face. These protect the more delicate parts of the smartwatch, like the main control button, sensors, and GPS antenna, from impacts. The buttons themselves are made from stainless steel and come “equipped with gasket fittings” to stop contaminants like mud or dust from getting in. Casio specifically designed the Rangeman duo for the outdoor enthusiast or athlete looking for a wrist assistant that won’t break down in the face of adventure.
