Seiko Prospex PADI Diver
Save $203: Powered by the cal. V157 quartz movement, the PADI special edition features a 47mm case, Hardlex mineral crystal, date display, Lumibright-coated hands and markers and a unidirectional rotating dive bezel. It’s water-resitant to 200m and features a screw-down crown and case back. Once fully charged, the power reserve on the V157 movement lasts roughly 10 months.

Lundquist Baby Barlow Knife
10% off pre-order: Urban EDC Supply’s new Lundquist Baby Barlow is an impressively compact companion; it can easily fit in the coin pocket of your jeans and boasts modern design elements while feeling totally timeless. This is a front flipper knife with a slip-joint pattern –drawing inspiration from the #25 pattern of a traditional folding knife your grandfather used to carry — with caged ball bearings and a steel inset lock bar allowing for more control as you open and close the blade. This knife will be available in early November, but you can pre-order now; it’s already discounted to $199 for the pre-order, but with the code GearPatrol10 you can get an additional 10% off this titanium go-anywhere, do-anything blade.— Gear Patrol
Insane Motorcycle Helmet Sale
Save up to $700: Today, however, is the day to upgrade your head protection if there ever was one. Right now over at Revzilla, there’s an insane sale on top-of-the-line motorcycle helmets. You can save up to $700 on select top-tier motorcycle helmets from brands like AGV, Bell and Schuberth. If you’ve always wanted the performance and protection from one of the best motorcycle helmets available today (and really, why wouldn’t you want that?), now’s your chance to save a few hundred dollars and upgrade your lid game.— Bryan Campbell
August Smart Lock Pro
Save $50: In our recent smart lock buying guide, we named the August Smart Lock Pro as the best overall smart lock — and right now it’s on sale. The normally $230 smart lock is currently $50 off. It’s a pretty good deal for anybody that wants to buy a smart lock, considering it’s easy to install and works with August’s and Nest’s line of smart home products (both of which are extremely popular). The Smart Lock Pro can work with Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri, meaning you can use voice commands to lock and unlock your door.
Fender Custom Shop Black Moon Telecaster
Save 31%:Ron Thorn makes some truly jaw-dropping guitars as a Principal Master Builder for the Fender Custom Shop. But with his experience, that’s no surprise. Before joining the brand in his current role, his inlay business, Thorn Inlay, was the sole inlay provider for the Custom Shop since the mid-‘90s. What’s more, he’s also built over 800 custom guitars with his own brand Thorn Guitars. Right now, Thorn’s first guitar built as Fender Custom Shop Master Builder is on sale at Guitar Center, and it’s truly stunning.
Originally listed for $8,000, this one-of-a-kind guitar is now 31 percent off and costs a hair less than $5,500. If you’re looking for a truly unique Tele from a world-class builder, this is definitely worth considering — and if you’re in New York City and are contemplating the purchase, you can stop by Guitar Center and play it yourself. — John Zientek
Citizen Eco-Drive Chronograph
Save 50%: Citizen’s Eco-Drive watches feature quartz movements that are powered by light and don’t require battery changes — perfect for summer adventuring and travel. The AT0200-05E features a 3-register chronograph and date display built into a 40mm case with mineral crystal, luminous hands and 100m of water resistance. It also ships on a green canvas two-piece strap that lends a cool military look. Right now, you can take half off the $250 MSRP, for a price of just $125. — Oren Hartov
