Today in Gear: Seiko’s Streetwear-Worthy New Prospex Watches, the Honda Talon 1000 SxS and 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.
Seiko’s Prospex Collection has evolved over the years beyond its roots as solely professional diving instruments but has stayed focused on durable everyday sport watches. The Prospex Steet Series released at the end of last year is no different, offering the signature Prospex toughness with a mix of bold color.
The monochrome blue, green, and gray color options stand out on the wrist while featuring the details of the Prospex line: matching silicone straps, solar-powered movements, bright luminescent on the dials, unidirectional rotating bezels, and 47mm lightweight cases that are water-resistant down to 200m. Utilizing the signature “Tuna Can” case style, the three Prospex Street Series timepieces take the fabled dive watch design to new places with a comfortable and eye-catching wear.

Wolf Viceroy Watch Winder
Save $319: While you don’t per se need a watch winder, its a nice accessory to have if you own multiple automatic watches. The problem is that even winders on the more affordable end of the spectrum can cost a surprisingly large amount of money, which is why it’s always nice to see a Wolf winder on sale. The winder’s MSRP is $499, but right now you can get it for just $180. — Zen Love
Reebok 50% Off Sale
Save 50%: Today, you can pick up a pair of Reebok’s best-selling CrossFit Nano 8 gym shoe and the Floatride Run — both on sale for over $70 off. Each sneaker is just a tad over $50, which is a steal for a sneaker that’s a winner in our Best Gym Sneakers guide. While the Nano sneakers are built for CrossFit, they make great gym sneakers, whether you prefer lifting weights and using machines over rope climbs and handstand pushups.
The best news of all is that Reebok’s massive spring sale doesn’t just include sneakers, it’s not just sneakers — you can take an additional 50 percent off all sale items including apparel and Classics. Be sure to use code EXTRA50 at checkout. — Meg Lappe|
Mystery Ranch Backpacks
Save up to 39%: Mystery Ranch may be better known for the heavy-duty packs worn by members of the military and backcountry firefighters, but the lightweight In and Out, which is currently 18 percent off at Huckberry, meets our expectations of the company, if for different reasons.
The In and Out is collapsible, folding into itself to become the size of a small pillow (and you might use it as such on a long flight or bus ride). But, unlike many other minimalist travel backpacks, it remains full-featured with 100-denier Cordura fabric, an aerospace mesh back panel and pockets to accommodate everything from a water bottle to an ice axe. For these reasons, it’s our pick for the best minimalist daypack for hiking, but it’ll serve travelers who prefer city sidewalks to trails just as well.
Repro Military Sneakers from Various Countries
Save 20%:If you’re looking for a new pair of sneakers for spring and don’t want the ubiquitous styles offered at big-box stores, consider picking up a military trainer. Japanese footwear brand Reproduction of Found specializes in reproduction military trainers from a range of different countries and for a limited time, they’re on sale at Need Supply Co. Pick up familiar silhouettes from countries like Canada and the U.S. or step out of the box with styles from Russia and China. No matter the option, you’ll get a well-made sneaker that will differentiate you from the crowd. — John Zientek
