Save 54%: This chrono features a larger 42.6mm steel case with a Japanese quartz movement powering two sub-dials — a 60-minute counter at 12 o’clock, and a running seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, as well as a date window. The SNN241 has a brown dial with Hardlex crystal and a matching contrast-stiched brown leather band with double-locking clasp. It’s also water-resistant to 100m, so while it’s splash-proof, it’s best to switch to a trusty dive watch for serious water sports. — Oren Hartov
Bodum French Press
Save 45%: Though coffee brewing styles come and go, the French press hasn’t budged. The simplest way to brew well without having to practice a routine and recipe, it’s the coffee beginner’s best friend (it also impresses guests). Today on Amazon, Bodum’s iconic, easy-to-use French press is marked way down. Though the 12-ounce press — good for about three cups of coffee — is just $16, we recommend buying bigger. The 34-ounce, 8-cup press is $30 and makes brewing coffee for a crowd that much easier. — Will Price
Save 71%:If you’ve been waiting to invest in an iconic pair of Persol sunglasses, Nordstrom Rack has a deal for you. Right now, you can save 71 percent on three different Italian-made Persols: the Aviator, the Sartoria and the Pilot models. Normally $350, these shades are now just $100 while supplies last. — John Zientek
Patagonia Black Hole Backpack
Save 30%: Of the well-loved products that Patagonia has created over the years — from ultralight synthetic insulation jackets to iconic fleeces — the Black Hole duffel is one that has weathered the years. The utilitarian gear hauler is made rugged enough to handle the rigors of weeks-long field expeditions yet practical enough that its features aren’t lost on casual travelers. (The 60-liter version is perfect for carry-on-only trips.)
Similar to the duffel, the Black Hole Pack uses a wide opening to access its main compartment, which has a sleeve for a laptop or a hydration reservoir as well as smaller pockets for essential items. Unhindered by other unnecessary features, the bag is left to do what it should: provide ample space for whatever it is you might need to carry.
Reebok Apparel and Sneaker Sale
Save 30%:Right now, you can save up to 30 percent off a variety of Reebok gear on eBay — including the Reebok Fast Tempo Flexweave Shoes. The sneakers are down from $100 to $75 in a couple of colors and a handful of sizes. If you’re looking for a new pair of shoes for the gym and to hop on the treadmill, this is the shoe for you. — Meg Lappe
2018 LG C8 OLED TV (65-inch)
Save 50%: LG’s 2018 C8 series of 4K OLED TVs are expensive. When they were released last past spring, a 65-inch model was going for $3,500. Almost a year later, however, that price has dropped over to around $2,597 — that’s over $1,000 off. But today eBay is running a deal on a brand-new C8 for $1,699 – that’s half off. Yes, it’s still expensive, but it’s not that bad considering that we’re talking about LG’s top-of-the-line 4K OLED TV. And LG makes the best 4K OLED TVs.
Sony WH1000XM3 Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $52: Sony released the WH1000XM3 this past fall and they’re better than the Sony WH1000XM2 in every way. They sound better. They’re better at noise-cancellation. They have modern perks, like USB-C charging. And they still cost $350. Again, these are the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy. Period. And now you can get them for a discount. Amazon is selling new models for $52 off. Both black and silver models are available at this discount.
Bell Race Star RSD Formula Helmet
Save up to 50%: The Bell Race Star helmet is explicitly tailored to compliment sport bike levels of performance, whether that’s on the street or circling a track. The 3K carbon fiber shell and Panovision viewport offer some of the best impact protection and field of vision on the market and are the same sort of features you’ll see top-flight racers putting to the test and enjoying on the global stage of motorsports. That kind of technology and design usually comes with a hefty price tag, but today you can get the Bell Race Star RSD Formula Helmet 50 percent off at $375. — Bryan Campbell
