43mm Withings ScanWatch Horizon Review: A Dive Watch by Any Other Name Is Just a Dive Watch

There’s something so effortlessly fashionable about the chunky, utilitarian design of a traditional diving watch. But other than being able to withstand abyss-like pressures underwater, even the most expensive diving watches can’t do much more than tell the time and apprise the wearer of how long they’ve been underwater. The Withings ScanWatch Horizon, on the other hand, offers luxury dive watch design and features, but it is so much more than just a great-looking watch that is also water-resistant to 10ATMs.



Ekster Aluminum Cardholder Review: A Minimalist’s Dream

Some months ago, my friend David turned me on to Ekster wallets. He had just gotten one and loved it. Soon after, I got an Ekster Parliament Wallet, and I’ve also become a fan.

Artilect Review: Offers a New Take on Merino Wool Base Layers

When I first started getting into merino wool clothing, I was a purist and only purchased clothing made from 100% merino wool.

Artilect is one of those companies, and it is doing some interesting things.


MGear Gadget Wallet 3.0 Review: Create an Everyday Carry That Is Tough, Attractive, and Uniquely Yours!

I tend to go through cycles with my wallet. Sometimes it’s bursting with receipts, business cards, and every card I’ve ever thought I might need, but every once in a while, I get the urge to slim down my everyday carry to a more reasonable level. I was recently given a chance to check out the MGear Gadget Wallet 3.0, a customizable minimalist wallet, and I figured it might be worth a try.



Rockport Men’s Rhyder Tie Slipper Review: Great for Home or Running Errands

One of the results of working from home during the pandemic has been a total changer in what qualifies as “workwear.” A decent shirt, sweatpants, and slippers have been appropriate for the last two years; the Rockport Men’s Rhyder Tie Slipper strikes a nice balance between casual work-from-home slippers and something you can wear to run errands.


Kizik Shoes Review: Quite Possibly the Most Comfortable and Easy to Wear Shoes Ever!

Before CES, Zek and I got offered the chance to try Kizik Shoes. As you can imagine, wearing the right shoes is critical when you’re going to be on your feet all day. Thinking that we would be doing our usual 15K+ steps per day while walking to meetings and attending events around Vegas, we were eager to see if Kizik styles could possibly be as comfortable as promised. We didn’t make it to Vegas for CES, but Zek and I still managed to put the shoes to the test; here’s how it went.






Citizen Rolls Out New CZ Smart Hybrid Smartwatches

Citizen watches have a specific and, in my personal opinion, fantastic aesthetic. It’s not shocking that with the advent of smartwatches, Citizen would want to be part of that market; to that end, they’re combining Citizen style with the brains of a smartwatch with their new CZ Smart Hybrid Smartwatch, which they call “Genius incognito.”
