Today in Gear: OneBlade’s Razor Subscription Service, The Cheapest Watch We’d Ever Buy & 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.
OneBlade’s single edge shaving razors are the most precisely engineered available. Made from either Tritan (a durable polymer) or German stainless steel, they deliver a closer, smoother shave with zero irritation thanks to a patented flexible head that ensures optimal blade exposure for an always perfect shaving angle. This elevated shaving experience is further enhanced when used with Japanese single-edge Feather FHS-10 blades which are around twice as thick as standard double-edge razor blades.
To help simplify your routine, OneBlade also offers two subscription services to ensure you’re always getting the best shave possible. You can opt for either the Blades and Skin Care package or the Blades Only package. While both include a substantial discount on 30 blades, the first option also includes a two-month supply of OneBlade’s Shaving Cream and Black Tie After Shave Balm. And for a limited time, you can get 20 percent off your purchase when you use the discount code SPRING at checkout.

Save 40%: The Devil Diver is a 44mm cushion-cased, screw-back watch with matte-black dial, sword hands framed in white and automatic Miyota movement with date. As on the original watch, the bezel’s first 15 minutes are done in red (a brightly-colored reminder not to stay underwater too long, and, you know, run out of air). You also get a box sapphire crystal with an internal magnifier and a steel bracelet. Oh, and that creamy, vintage-style lume. — Andrew Connor

Sonos Outdoor Speaker Bundle
Save $550: Here’s the problem. You have a Sonos speaker system in your home and you love it, but now it’s grilling season and your current Sonos system doesn’t extend outdoors. Fortunately for you there’s a cheaper way to fix this than ever before. At Best Buy right now, you can buy a bundle that includes the Sonos Outdoor by Sonance ($799) (a pair of Sonance outdoor speakers that are basically designed to work as outdoor Sonos speakers) and a Sonos Connect:Amp ($400), which is needed for the Sonance speakers to work with your Sonos system, for just $650. If you bought the speaker and amplifier bundle separately, it’d cost you $1,199. This bundle saves you a total of $550, which is pretty amazing.
Carhartt Washed Duck Work Dungaree Pant
Save 53%: Carhartt might be the biggest name in workwear, and right now much of its hardwearing clothing is on sale at Mountain Steals for as much as 60 percent off. Chief among the selection is the company’s classic duck canvas work pants, which you can snag for just $19 thanks to a 53 percent discount. Other fantastic deals include work shorts for $21, a button down work shirt for $22, a canvas apron for $27 and, for the die-hards, a one-piece cotton baselayer union suit for $22. There are plenty of other items in Mountain Steals’s Carhartt sale with limited colors and sizes, but if you’re in need for a refreshed set of work clothing, this is one sale not to miss. — Tanner Bowden
