So many fitness trackers — and so few of them that can do more than one thing. The Atlas Fitness Tracker promises to track everything. This wrist-mounted device features an active display, a heart rate monitor, x, y, and z axis tracking and advanced software. It knows what exercise you're doing, and can also give you feedback on whether you're cheating or using proper form. It's waterproof, so it can also track swimming exercises, and knows the difference between breaststroke, freestyle, and everything else. In addition, it can actually learn new exercises, so whether you're training at your local gym of lifting boulders and swinging swords in the wilderness, it can adapt. Try that with your average clip-on sensor.
When you're not in a rush, take your time and do it right.

If there is one thing that is consistent throughout drinking history, it's the desire most of us have for stronger drinks. The barley wine style of beer was introduced for this specific reason in the late 18th century, and not many have mastered the style as effectively as Firestone Walker Brewing with their annual release, Sucaba. Brewed since 2006, but only bottled since 2010, the annual release of this bourbon barrel aged barely wine is one that beer geeks look forward to acquiring, hoarding and of course, drinking. Those fortunate enough to unlock a bottle are rewarded with hints of chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, and a warming 13.5% ABV.
As proud owners of Apple TVs, we can attest to the fact that should you not pay attention to where you set it, the sleek little aluminum remote is one of the most easily lost pieces of technology we've ever seen. The Apple TV Tray aims to keep the remote handy by holding both the unit and the remote snugly in a piece of sustainably sourced American Walnut or Maple. Apart from looking great, the tray also protects your remote by lining its slot with 100% Merino wool. Is it necessary? Certainly not. But it looks great, is made in the USA, and, most importantly, will keep you from hunting for the remote.
They look like normal waffles — and depending on what flavor you get, they taste like them, too. But Wired Waffles pack a secret ingredient to help you get a jump start on your day. See, each 2.5oz waffle packs 200mg of caffeine, meaning that a breakfast of two waffles will pack more punch than a grande coffee from Starbucks. They come in tasty flavors like Bacon Maple, Sweet Sugar, Cinnamon, and Chocolate Chip, and should you decide you need an extra kick, they sell caffeinated maple syrup to serve along side it for the equivalent of a triple espresso breakfast.
Introduced in 1964, the original FIA version of the small block Cobra went on to dominate many forms of racing throughout the decade, against well-known foes like Corvette, Jaguar, and Aston Martin. Now you can recapture that racing spirit with the 50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra 289 FIA. Appropriately limited to just 50 examples, this highly desirable throwback will feature a Viking Blue paint job with Arctic White stripes and roundels, a black leather interior, special anniversary badges, a hand-formed fiberglass or aluminum frame, 15-inch powder coated wheels, a complete exhaust, and a car cover. All you need is an engine, transmission, and some open road.
Between Spotify, Rdio, Pandora, and the other big-name music services, you could make the argument that world doesn't need another one. But Beats Music is here anyway. And while it does offer the standard features we've come to expect from its competitors — things like playlist building, sharing, and offline playback — it also adds some totally novel music discovery features, including an advanced recommendation service and a feature that lets you tell the app where you are, how you're feeling, and who you're with, and it will create a custom playlist on the fly that's perfect for that moment. It's like having a tiny Dr. Dre inside your phone, or something.
Sprinkler systems are great when you live in a hot and/or dry climate where your lawn doesn't get much in the way of rain — but most systems still run even if you do get the occasional shower. The Skydrop Sprinkler Controller won't. Thanks to its built-in Wi-Fi connection, it syncs up with a cloud service and adjusts its watering schedule based on current local weather conditions. As you might imagine, it also makes it possible to manage your system from your phone, tablet, or laptop, keeping you informed while saving you money and conserving water.
If you haven't yet started preparing for a potential breakdown of society, don't worry — the Wolfram Survival Cabinet gives even the laziest among us a one-step way to go from woefully unprepared to ready for anything. The cabinet itself is double steel-walled, made in the USA, features dual locks, and comes in a handsome orange. But it's what's inside that's the real draw: over 170 items carefully selected to keep you safe and alive should all hell break loose. From water, food, and first-aid materials to tools, sanitation, and shelter needs, it's got your covered.
With a design that originated in north-central France in the 1950s, the Baladeo Le Retro Knife offers a great mix of style and utility. Two blades, a saw, a can opener, a punch, a corkscrew, a piercing tool, and, of course, a bottle opener are all available inside its stainless steel body, which is finished off with a true blonde horn handle. It's not the most versatile multifunction knife we've ever seen, but it also won't leave you looking like you're geared up for an adventure when all you're doing is heading to the local coffee shop.
No, it's not some sort of science-experiment charger that runs off Dial — instead, the PhoneSoap Charger is designed to clean your phone itself. Inside its clamshell-style body, it features a standard 5V USB port that allows it to work with pretty much any phone that can fit, as well as a pair of UV-C lamps that can completely sanitize your phone in just 4 minutes. It also boasts acoustic outlets built into the design, so if you're the type that charges at night and uses your phone for an alarm, you'll still be able to wake up to whatever tone you've chosen — only this time with a freshly sanitized device.
Forget about strapping chains to your wheels, buying snow tires, or filling the bed of your truck with sandbags — no, what you really need this winter is Track N Go. While most other track systems for your truck require expensive and time consuming installation, as well as pretty considerable alterations, with Track N Go, all you need to do is drive on top and attach.

Power comes directly from the wheels on your truck, easily driving the track system without impacting handling and turning.
