Braun has introduced a new high-end shaving system that will literally shake you. Well, it'll actually just vibrate your face real good. Powered by sonic technology, the Braun Pulsonic Shaver pulses with over 10,000 microvibrations per minute to expose and cut more hair for a closer shave. The Pulsonic also features Braun's Sensitive Flexing Head and automatic Clean & Renew System, and is the world's first shaver with an Energy Star-qualified battery charger. The Pulsonic is available in two models — the 9595CC with LCD screen ($250) and the 9585CC with LED lights ($220).
The sleek new Philips Norelco Arcitec Shavers feature Flex and Pivot technology with three independently flexing heads and a 360 degree range of motion for a super close shave. The units also offer Triple Track shaving heads with 50% more shaving surface, an ultra-slim ergonomic body, and an advanced Tube Trimmer. Three models are available — the Arcitec 1090 (carbon fiber; $240), 1060 (silver finish; $200), and 1050 ($170; black lacquered shell).
For the more active folks among us, the Acuatico Automatic Watch is prepared to meet every challenge head-on. Built with adventure in mind, the timepiece is powered by the energy of your wrist's motion. It features a Japanese Miyota automatic movement that is self-winding and has a 40 hour power reserve. It also boasts a scratch resistant sapphire crystal, and a unidirectional rotating diver bezel with luminescent number and marker fill for low light visibility. Tough and reliable enough to handle whatever daring activity you have in mind next, whether it's on land or in the water.

If you're more used to the feel of a blade, but want to go electric, check out the Hitachi Rotary Razaq ($150). This imported wet/dry razor features an elongated body to more closely match the feel of a standard blade-based razor, as well as omni-directional, washable blades, a 3,500rpm motor, and a rechargeable battery.
F1 fans will love the Philips Norelco 9199XL Limited Edition Formula 1 SmartTouch-XL ($380).
