I would go for the latest Amazfit GPS watch. You can buy protective cases for it and it's very affordable/complete.

I'll go for the G shock 5600 series! So tough & affordable. Especially cool when you got so many case types + bracelets varieties to modded at!

Omg I’ve just been exposed to a whole new world of watches...

And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,

As far as i appreciate the functions and features of such a watch ,i started with a Casio when i was 10-11 ,i don't want to go back there.
Unless i really needed the features for a specific reason not casual wear.
Wearing a watch with the function of Houston Nasa control only to tell time and perhaps play with the features the very first day you buy it and then forget an never use gain is pointless .
Wearing a watch these days for me is more of a self complementing thing , a little engine in my wrist,otherwise i don't even need a watch i have a phone which is also a powerful computer (8 cores\ 32 16G ram ,512g memory etc) .

A watch is also a little mechanical artform that's why digital watches never really pushed the analog first and then the mechanical ones out of the market,if you take into account a percentage that would buy a mechanical watch (from 1-2 very well known brands )
just for show off,all others buy a mechanical watch for the above reason.
Now if you are in the service ,oh yes Casio is your best Friend!

I couldn't agree more. When I had a job where my watch was constantly banging into doors, cars, and people a G Shock was my best friend. When I would have to sit in a car for hours on end at night and not take the chance of any light giving me away a GD-350 (vibration G Shock) was the perfect tool. Now that I no longer have to do things like that I really prefer mechanical watches. A watch is now a pleasure and not a necessity. I do have one quartz I love but it cost me less than $50 new and has a real vintage feel imo because of the acrylic crystal so I just enjoy wearing it. A Timex Mk1 steel.
