Todd Snyder X Timex Blackjack Watch
Save 28%: Todd Snyder’s access to the Timex archives has resulted in all sorts of cool collaborations over the past few years, but the updated versions of the once-obscure “Sprite” models from the 1970s have proven so be some of our favorites. We were enthusiastic about the “Blackjack” watch when it first debuted, but in case you need a refresher, this is a sleek, automotive-inspired timepiece with cool “roulette wheel” dial done up in black and white, a black-finished case, 50m of water resistance, a quartz movement and a black Nato strap. The watch generally retails for only $138, but right now, you can nab it for just $99 — Oren Hartov
P.F. Flyers Sneakers
Save up to 64%:Today P.F. Flyers has marked down nearly 20 styles in a last call sale. Sizes are limited, but given the broad range of options, there is a good chance you can find something to your liking to wear into spring.
Whether you’re partial to low or high-top lace-ups, slip-ons or even shoes with velcro closures (why not?), you can find something here. Mark-downs on sneakers from the classic Boston-based brand range from just $10 to $70, making the already reasonably priced canvas sneakers all the more attractive. This sale isn’t likely to go on for long though, so it’ll pay to act quickly. — John Zientek
Save up to 39%:There’s no reason you shouldn’t have a range of well-made ties. Having a few great options will serve you well either at work (if your office has a professional dress code) or at upcoming summer weddings.
If you’re looking for a quality tie at a bargain price, head over to Todd Snyder: you can currently save up to 39 percent on some of the best ties available. Made in the U.K. by Drake’s, the ties are cut from wool, cashmere, linen and silk, and come in range of colors and textures. Act fast if you see something you like — a deal like this won’t last long. — John Zientek
Bose SoundTouch 300 Soundbar
Save $200: The Bose SoundTouch 300 is an excellent soundbar that will work well with any of the latest 4K TVs. It supports Alexa as well. When it was released in 2017, Bose was selling the SoundTouch 300 for $699 — but being two-years-old, Amazon has dropped its price to $499. It’s a pretty solid deal, especially considering the soundbar is very similar in price, size and capabilities to the Sonos Playbar ($699); actually, according to CNET‘s Ty Pendlebury, the SoundTouch 300 has the Playbar beat “in terms of both sound stage and ‘you are there’ detail.”
CAP Dumbbell Sale
Save 23%: CAP makes some of the best dumbbells available, and you can pick up a pair of 20- or 25-pounders for up to 23 percent off. Weights are requisite home gym gear and necessary for strength-based at-home workouts. And these durable CAP rubber coated dumbbell weights are ideal for a variety of exercises. While you can do most fitness moves with just your bodyweight, adding a pair of dumbbells ups the intensity level leading to the results you want.
The rubber ends mean they won’t rust, and the hex-shaped design makes it easy to hold a plank and row. Right now, you can pick up a couple of 25-pounders for $13 off or 20-pounders for $16.70 off. Buy a pair, then start pumping out overhead presses, dumbbells squats and AMRAP (as many reps as possible) bicep curls. — Meg Lappe
Some of the Best Workout Shorts Available Are on Sale
Save 30%: A crucial aspect of any workout is comfort, not just in how you feel but what you’re wearing. It’s a fact that makes an outwardly simple piece of clothing like a pair of shorts all-important, and mundane details like pocket placement and waistband material (not to mention the debate over built-in liners) introduce a significant level of variability into the span what’s available. Today, a dedicated group of brands is addressing workout shorts — for the gym, for running, for yoga and more — in creative (and comfortable) ways. Many of our favorite models, and those preferred by professional trainers, from Ten Thousand, Rhone, Wolaco and more are currently on sale at Huckberry for 30 percent off. — Tanner Bowden
Baratza Virtuoso Burr Coffee Grinder
Save $40: The best coffee grinders in the world are big, heavy and industrial, like the Mahlkonig EK43. But unless you’re ready to fork over a couple of Gs and half the real estate of your kitchen counter, you’re better off going with a Baratza Virtuoso — on sale today for the lowest price we’ve ever seen. — Jack Seemer
Lodge 12-Inch Cast Iron Skillet
Save $17: Good news: Lodge’s 12-inch skillet is marked down to just $25 at Amazon. Its 10 inches of cooking space (the 12-inch designation refers to a wall-to-wall measurement, not cooking space) is the ideal size for most stovetop burners — any bigger and heat distribution issues are exacerbated, any smaller and you can’t cook a whole lot. Plus, unlike Lodge’s behemoth 13- and 15-inch pans, the 12-inch will actually fit in a kitchen cabinet. — Will Price
