Design that the SILQ will cost more than $3,000, while a less technical version will cost $970 (still more than most office chairs). — Jack Seemer

Bell & Ross V2-94 Heritage
Bell & Ross’s vintage-inspired chronograph was well-received when it debuted at Baselworld in 2017, and now the brand is giving the watch an updated dial colorway. In Heritage guise, the V2-94 gets hands and hour markers adorned with tan-colored Super-LumiNova, as well as a 100M depth-rating denoted at six o’clock in eye-popping red. The changes are overall minimal, but the result is an excellent recreation of a vintage tool watch dial. — Andrew Connor

Google Clips Camera
Google revealed the Clips — a tiny wireless camera designed for parents who want to take candid photos of their kids and pets — several months ago alongside the Google Pixel 2, Google Home Max and Pixel Buds. But pre-orders for the unique device finally opened up just this weekend. Unfortunately, it’s already “out of stock,” though you can join a waitlist on Google’s website. You can find a rundown of everything the camera can do here.

Gregory Optic 48
The brand that’s best known for its ultralight backpacking and trekking packs unveiled a new superstar, the Optic 48. Ideal for thru-hikers, the shoulder straps are ventilated, the waist belt is supportive, and the aluminum frame helps to keep the pack weighing in at just 2.3-pounds. Fit water bottles in the side pockets on the left and right for easy access during the day, plus store your favorite snacks in the zippered hip belt pockets, or the front stretch mesh pocket. Offered in a blue or grey, and a 48 or 58L, this new pack is here to keep your back dry during even the toughest trail conditions. — Meg Lappe

Wilson Black Edition Tennis Rackets
Following the success of the Black Edition product line, Wilson launches three models of rackets, including the Ultra, Blade and Burn. Each contains countervail technology, designed to help reduce muscle fatigue and shorten recovery time. If you’re looking to seriously up your game, consider investing (all your money) in the Roger Federer Historic 20th Grand Slam Platinum Edition racket package for a cool $20,006. You’ll have to shop fast since Wilson only produced 20 of the limited edition rackets. In addition to the racket that will have you serving aces, you’ll receive a tennis ball signed by Federer, too. Match points are no longer intimidating. — Meg Lappe

Save 25%: It was once true that high-quality sunglasses had to be Italian. It isn’t anymore, and it turns out a couple of California surf bums can make a pair of shades worthy of some European envy. Raen Optics sunglasses are designed in the Golden State and constructed with a sharp eye on detail and the finest materials available, including cellulose acetate of the highest grade and Carl Zeiss lenses. Raen sunglasses keep UV rays out with style, and right now you can grab a pair for 25 percent off. — Tanner Bowden

They’re versatile, too, with copious input options (optical, RCA, USB) and Bluetooth connectivity. About the Klipsch R-15PMs, SoundReview wrote: “Why would you not buy speakers with inbuilt phono pre-amp, 50W per channel output capacity, it sounds like a reference speaker and costs only $499?”… but now that $499 price has been slashed to $259 — that’s basically half off. — Tucker Bowe
