Sennheiser CX 6.00BT Earbuds
Save $30: The Sennheiser CX 6.00BT were released earlier in 2018 and, in all honesty, they’re pretty standard wireless in-ear headphones. They’re lightweight and adaptable. And they boast the signature high-end sound that Sennheiser is well known for, supporting Bluetooth 4.2 and aptX codecs, too, so you can stream really high-quality tracks. Normally $100, you can order Sennheiser CX 6.00BT today from worldwidestereo.com for $70, which is $30 off and a deal you can’t find anywhere else. Just make sure to type in the code GEAR at checkout. At the very least, these headphones will make a great stocking stuffer.
Garmin Fenix 5X Sale
Save $130 Garmin makes some of the most reliable GPS tracking watches around. We’ve run with the Forerunner 235, the Vivoactive 3 and the Fenix 5S. Beyond marathon training, one of our favorite ways to use the Fenix 5S is for hiking. We awarded it one of the Best Hiking Watches this year and are still wearing it around town. It tracked our routes seamlessly, and the battery life is pretty impressive. Right now, you can save $130 off a Garmin Fenix 5X.
Whether you love running, hiking or adventuring, the Fenix 5X is the perfect model. It’s a hefty watch but comes with 20 hours of battery life, a super strong face and design, and a comfortable band. Check your VO2 max, messages, steps and more after each run around the block or down the hill. The watch monitors training status as well as how long you need to recover after your logged workouts. Shop this Amazon deal while it lasts.

Save Up to 30% Good computer monitors are both expensive and, once purchased, very worth it. That is to say that once you’ve dipped your toes into the world of monitors with higher refresh rates (standard monitors operate at 60 Hz), shrunken response times, framerate smoothers and superior color depth, there’s no turning back.
Today, a slew of these monitors are on sale during Amazon’s PC-focused segment of its 12 Days of Deals. We’ve picked out a few below, but if you’re new to the jargon-filled world of computer monitors, prepare to do some Googling. An example: if you’re buying a monitor as a gift for a PC user, you should know what kind of graphics card the giftee uses — if it’s Nvidia look for G-Sync, if it’s AMD look for FreeSync. —Will Price
Frye Suede Boots
Save up to 40%:Contrary to some widely held beliefs, you don’t have to be cautious with suede boots. Roughout styles can take the same use and abuse as full-grain alternatives, and they age just as well. Now at Zappos, you can save up to 40 percent on a range of rugged suede boots from Frye. The selection includes Chelsea boots, harness boots and zip boots, available in a range of neutral colors. And for those who prefer slim or tapered pants: these styles are designed to sit under the cuff without causing abnormal bulging. — John Zientek
