Since 2017 is the year you’ll definitely sign up for that marathon, you’ll need a way to stay accountable. Meet your new workout buddy: the Magellan Switch Up GPS fitness watch.

Consider this versatile, waterproof watch the answer to the Fitbit’s sky-high price tag: it’s just as powerful, but at least $100 less than most models out there. Strap it to your wrist before any activity, and you’ll track time, distance, speed/pace, elevation, calories, and more with razor-sharp precision.

Since it’s compatible with any ANT+ sensor (like heart rate monitors and bike speed sensors), you’ll get an even more holistic picture of your health. Plus, record triathlons as a single workout, or craft up to nine different fitness profiles for different activities.

The Magellan won’t complain if you wake up to train at 4am … unlike certain half-hearted race companions. Get the Magellan Switch Up for $29.99 from the Daily Dot store — that’s 85 percent off the retail price of $209.99.
