Nearly every smartwatch tracks your activity. Yet very few are built for those who are truly active. Powered by Android Wear and the new Snapdragon Wear 2100 chip, the Nixon Mission Smart Watch was designed with surfers, skiers, and snowboarders in mind. Its main Mission app links to services like Surfline, Snocountry, and Trace to give you the conditions and tracking you require, and of course, it also runs the thousands of apps already available for the platform. Spec-wise, it has a fully round AMOLED display, a dual-layer silicone band, and a rugged chassis made from polycarbonate, stainless steel, and a Gorilla Glass crystal that helps earn the watch a water rating of 10ATM, or more than enough to stand up to the heaviest of waves.
Ideally, none of us would need to take pills everyday. But whether it's a dietary supplement or life-saving medication, many of us do. The Hero Smart Pill Dispenser makes it easy to do so the right way. This smart appliance sits on your counter, stores up to 10 different pills, and dispenses them on a schedule or on demand. It has a built-in screen with a simple interface, dispenses with a single button press, and tracks consumption, so you — or your loved one — gets an alert when it's time to take a pill, and the caregiver gets an alert if a dose is missed.
Based on the same technology that made Marty McFly's Mags a reality, the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 is ready to bring auto-lacing technology into the real world. Designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield with an assist from Tiffany Beers, the shoes hide their mechanical systems under under the arch, using a sensor to tell when you've stepped in, and automatically adjusting the laces to fit your foot. From there, two buttons let you tighten and loosen as necessary, but this is only the beginning — Nike claims that future models may be able to dynamically adjust the laces on the fly. Offered exclusively to Nike+ members, they come in three colorways.
Located in the D'Entrecasteaux Channel between mainland Tasmania and Bruny Island, Satellite Island is a private escape getaway unspoiled by the likes of the public. The whale-shaped landmass takes around an hour and a half to walk around, whether you're on the high path, or walking the ancient rock shelf at low tide. You can stay at the Summer House, which has room for 12 guests, or enjoy proximity to the water at the more intimate Boathouse — the choice is yours, since you have the entire island to yourself. No matter where you rest your head, you'll be welcomed with a bottle of champagne and a bucket of oysters, and can avail yourself of the free-range eggs, garden, and fruits of the sea, or have the caretaker Richard run you into town for more traditional fare like wallaby burgers and fries.
Burgers get author Matthew Ramsey hot in more ways than one. Ramsey is a chef, food stylist, creative producer, and now author of Pornburger, a book made for everyone with a fetish for delicious burgers. It features the most unique recipes ever put between two handcrafted buns, all of which is photographed tastefully for your enjoyment. And it's not just a burger peep show, as Ramsey shows readers how to create their own mouth watering burgers as well.
Thusly named because "Black Bay Black" sounds more than a little redundant, the TUDOR Heritage Black Bay Dark Watch provides a stealthy take on the company's classic diver's watch. Its 41 mm steel case is finished with black PVD-treated coating, leaving it with a tasteful matte finish to match the dial, bezel, and oversized crown. Powered by the COSC certified, reference MT5602 movement, which is developed, manufactured, and assembled in-house, it's waterproof to 200 meters, offers a 70-hour power reserve, and comes with both a gray fabric strap and your choice of a PVD-treated black steel bracelet or aged leather strap with black PVD steel clasp.
