New Balance has released its first Android Wear smartwatch, the RunIQ, which will retail for $299. The fitness-focused watch was designed in partnership with Intel, Google, and Strava, which handled hardware, software, and run tracking, respectively.

The RunIQ comes with every feature you’d expect from a fitness wearable: built-in GPS, course, pace and distance tracking, heart rate sensor, Bluetooth, and 24-hour battery life (or five hours with continuous GPS use). The watch is also water resistant and will sync with Strava so you can share your workouts online.

The New Balance RunIQ is currently sold out on Amazon, but you can still purchase it from New Balance’s website.
