What's New, Now
Today in Gear: Nixon’s Latest Chronograph, Range Rover’s Two-Door Off Roader and More
We’ve made some new adjustments to Today in Gear, including a new publishing time of 4 p.m. in order to capture all the day’s new stories. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With input from current and former special ops personnel, Nixon created the Regulus, a durable and functional chronograph watch made to withstand the rigors of any activity you throw at it. Its 46mm case is made from durable, fiber-reinforced TR90 and is shockproof as well as water resistant to 100 meters. The Regulus features not one but two chronographs that can record times all the way to a one-hundredth of a second as well as a dual-time function, three customizable alarm functions and a silent mode setting. An adjustable LED backlight allows wearers to select the optimal brightness for all kinds of environments, and the five-year battery life means changes will be few and far between.
New & Noteworthy Releases
Cambridge Satchel Classic Folio

Sony WH-1000XM2 Wireless ANC headphones
Save $100: Frankly, the Sony WH-1000XM2 and the Bose QC35 II ($350) are the two best wireless active noise-canceling headphones you can buy in 2018. Both have a minimalist design and sound terrific, plus they boast the best ANC abilities you can get in any wireless over-ear headphone. The Sony WH-1000XM2 are extra neat because they have a feature Sony calls “Quick Attention,” which enables you to instantly lower the music volume when you put your hand over the right earcup.
The Sony WH-1000XM2 are going for $200 on eBay right now — which is almost $100 less than its normal $300 MSRP. This is the lowest we’ve seen the Sony WH-1000XM2 going for. It’s also important to point out that these headphones are “manufacturer-refurbished.” If you’re worried about them not meeting your expectations, remember that each pair comes with a warranty and a 30-day return policy. — Tucker Bowe
Mophie Powerstation XL
Save $110: Mophie is known for its really high-end and reliable — and yes, often expensive — smartphone accessories. Its Powerstation XL is a 12,000mAh portable power bank that can fit in your pocket, and we’ve previously named it as one of the best power banks you can buy. It has enough power to charge your iPhone X several times over and, with its two USB ports, it can charge two devices simultaneously. The Powerstation XL goes for $130 on Mophie’s website, but you can buy it for just $20 on eBay right now. — Tucker Bowe

Red Wing Heritage Boots
Save up to $87: It’s no secret that Red Wing makes some of the best boots in the world. The Minnesota company, founded in 1905, manufactured footwear for American soldiers in both World Wars and, over the last 100 years, practically set the standard for everyday work boots. Right now at Brooks Brothers, you can save up to $87 on three classic styles from its Heritage line, including the 8111 Iron Ranger, 9016 Beckman and 9219 Foreman Chukka. — Jack Seemer
