Today in Gear: GoPro’s Latest Go-Anywhere Adventure Camera, Our Absolute Favorite Watches from SIHH 2019 & More
Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whatever your plans, you need a camera that can withstand the voyages you’re embarking on. That choice has been a GoPro for years. It still is. With the rugged camera brand’s latest release, the HERO7 Black, that sentiment isn’t simply reinforced, it’s cemented — the HERO7 Black is GoPro’s most sophisticated camera yet.
Here’s what makes it superior. The development of HyperSmooth technology ensures the end of shaky videos. Voice commands allow for easy hands-free filming on-the-go. The SuperPhoto feature analyzes lighting situations to ensure the optimal image. And the new direct-to-social live streaming capabilities offer an experience unlike anything else. All of this adds up to making the premier adventure camera even better for documenting wherever your 2019 travels take you.
New & Noteworthy Releases
Knifemakers from around the world just revealed all of the new designs they plan to release in 2019.
The Seiko 5 has been an inexpensive watch line for decades — now it's being reimagined with an inner rotating bezel and dual crowns.
Subaru just won Kelley Blue Book’s 2019 Best Resale Value award for the Crosstrek, Legacy, and Outback.
Ralph Lauren is bringing the DuPont technology that warmed Team USA at the 2018 Winter Olympics to a limited-edition winter parka.
Photos of the Triumph Thruxton R TFC leaked late last year, but now we have detailed drool-inducing photos to go along with the bike's official performance numbers.
Dyson V8 Vacuums
Save 30% Among Dyson’s vast and expensive catalog, the V8 vacuum stands out. The cordless vacuum sports more suction power and battery life than its preceding model, and its entire filtration system is washable — meaning you don’t have to replace the filters as often. And because it’s three years old, it can be had for much less than the most up-to-date model.
Today on Amazon, the V8 Absolute is marked down to $350 — or more than $100 lower than any price we’ve seen before. —Will Price
Zwilling x Bob Kramer Chef’s Knife
Save $60Owning a Bob Kramer knife is a status symbol. Owned by culinary giants like Thomas Keller, Charlie Palmer and Andrew Zimmern, Kramer’s knives sell at auctions for tens of thousands of dollars, and he’s got a years-long waitlist to boot.
It should be noted that this is a high carbon steel blade, meaning it shouldn’t be washed in a dishwasher or left with any moisture on it. If you’re serious about picking up a carbon steel knife, it would be wise to pick up some knife oil, too. —Will Price
Sony WH1000XM3 Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $50: The Sony WH1000XM3 are the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy. This past December we gave them a 2018 GP100 award, which we give to the 100 best products of the year. If you haven’t heard of these headphones, here’s what you need to know: 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 now you can get them for a discount. Amazon is selling refurbished models for $300 — that’s a savings of $50. Both black and silver models are available at this discount.
