Checkpoint Advanced OSPF Capability

Hello, we would like to move some features we are running today from a Cisco router to the Checkpoint firewall. I have several questions about this. Currently we are redistributing our Checkpoint default route into our OSPF domain which works fine. However, we are preparing to implement a second Internet ISP connection and want to redistribute the Checkpoint default route based on conditions. In the Cisco world, we do this using IP SLA^s. We setup an IP SLA to monitor upstream IP^s addresses, for example 8.8.8.8. If the IP SLA cannot ping 8.8.8.8 the default route will not be redistributed. 

Does Checkpoint have the ability to redistribute its default route based on this condition? 

Also, can I create permanent static routes in Checkpoint? I would want to redistribute a permanent static route into our OSPF domain so our IP SLA cannot reach 8.8.8.8 via the second Internet ISP.
