Today in Gear: Start Your Week Here

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and news from Gear Patrol Studios.

7-Eleven has announced plans to launch a new EV fast charging network. Entitled ‘7Charge,’ the new network will connect to an app to provide convenient, reliable fast charging around the United States (and eventually Canada). The company will test the program in stores across Florida, Texas, Colorado and California – but ultimately aims to create one of the largest EV fast-changing networks in North America. That said, with over 13,000 stores to its name, 7-Eleven is certainly equipped to try its luck.

Today we’re taking a look at a new Cleaver, ‘scientific’ apparel and a brand new smartwatch. This is Today in Gear.
