Reveals, New Launches and Gear
Suunto Traverse Collection
Suunto’s newest collection of sports watches is geared toward day hikers and weekend adventurers. Available in five different colors (Amber, Black, White, Graphite and Slate), each Traverse syncs with Movescount and allows wearers to plan and upload their hikes before heading out the door. Each device has a built-in GPS satellite navigation system, which accurately keeps track of the person’s location and distance covered, and allows them to save key points along the hike. Other specs like altitude, vertical speed and total ascent are also monitored. And since each Traverse has a battery life of 100 hours, a 24-to-48 adventure is no sweat.
Puphaus by Pyradmd
This contemporary doghouse is the brainchild of a industrial designer and a graphic designer. It’s made out of Western Red Cedar wood and a cement board from Portland.
The Roll-Rack by COR Surf
An ideal storage system for the garage, the Roll-Rack has interchangeable rolling dowels and can sit a number of surfboards, kayaks and SUP boards.
The Sebastian Cox Kitchen by deVOL
This new kitchen collaboration is designed with sustainable timbers (birch, beech and ash) from England which are woven together. Sebastian Cox, the designer from whom this collaboration takes its name, says the kitchen is meant to look “like it breathes.”
Razor DXT Drift Trike
Razor’s new trike drifter has a full-size steel frame, 10-inch rear wheels and can hit some pretty alarming speeds when racing downhill.
Canon Powershot G9 X
The Powershot G9 X is Canon’s newest point-and-shoot camera. Some of its specs include a 1.0-inch high-sensitivity CMOS sensor, an f/2.0-4.9 lens and a DIGIC 6 image processor.
Deals of Note
Great Products at a Great Price
Sony MDRV6 Studio Monitor Headphones
Save $30 on one of the best values ever in the headphone market. Originally introduced in 1985, the Sony MDRV6 is one of the most iconic sets of headphones ever made. These cans were the preferred option of studio greats like Dr. Dre (before he built his own brand). They’re also loved by at least one member of our staff.
Hamilton Intra-Matic Dress Watch
Save $365 on one of our top picks for the frugal watch nerd. With classic ’60s styling and a steel case that’s only 10mm thick, the Intra-matic is about simplicity, class and charm. It’s also powered by the formidable ETA 2892-2 automatic Swiss movement and offers a date display at 6:00 — meaning it competes with dress watches that cost far more.
