Combining classic lace-up workwear style with the comfort of modern footwear technology, the Cole Haan Lunargrand Boot ($280) gives you everything you look for in a winter boot. Available in two understated colorways — brown leather or green leather with ripstop inlays — this boot features a waterproof leather upper perfect for keeping out snow and rain.

Nike Lunarlon cushioning in the sole gives you plenty of comfort, making this the ideal boot to wear all day.
You don't limit your exercise routine to just one activity, so why should your fitness tracker only cover one sport at a time?

The stylish dark grey and black watch features a high-res, high-contrast black and white display, GPS, single-button control, a built-in swim sensor, Bluetooth Smart, and optional heart rate monitor, cadence/speed sensors, and altimeter add-ons.

Tactical, understated, and simple, the Breitling Super Avenger II Watch ($TBA) is a go-anywhere timepiece with professionalism and style to spare. While there are plenty of options within this line, the military version — limited to just 500 pieces — is the obvious choice, with its large 48mm black steel case, volcano black dial, and webbed strap. A large crown and textured pushers make it easy to use when you're cold or wet, and the luminous markers are easy to read on its dark face, making it perfect for outdoor activities. With three sub-dials and a date function, there's no way you'll lose track of anything worth remembering.
Combining never-before-seen aesthetics with footwear technology designed to work with your foot, rather than against it, in a colorway that could only be inspired by one of basketballs most colorful characters — the Nike Kobe 9 Elite ($TBA; available February) is a shoe apart from any other. It uses Nike's Flyknit technology to make an upper that feels seamless, enhancing breathability, stretch, and support. Their Flywire technology helps provide additional support in the mid foot, loosening and tightening as your feet move. Lunarlon cushioning gives improved impact resistance, while keeping your feet anchored to the ground as you play.
If you need a watch that's so precise it can keep time down to a tiny fraction of a second, you need the Tag Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder Watch ($120,000). Representing the complete reinvention of mechanically-regulated watch movement, this timepiece measures time down to a ridiculous 5/10,000th of a second — so you'll never have to worry about missing a beat. The watch comes on a hand-sewn anthracite soft-touch alligator bracelet, with a polished and brushed black titanium carbide coated steel case, a sapphire crystal, and an anthracite and silver dial.

Some shoe silhouettes never go out of style, but that doesn't mean they can't be made better with the addition of a bit of modern footwear technology — and the Nike Air Max Lunar 90 ($130) is proof. This classic shoe gets an update making the sole and upper more breathable, lightweight, and comfortable. The combination of a Lunarlon sole, a seamless upper, and a compression molded collar, lining, and tongue give these old-school kicks a touch of new-school ventilation, responsiveness, and wearability. Available now as a limited release in the original Air Max colorway, these shoes will soon be released in a series of other colorways to reflect the update.
