With Under Armour Speedform Running Shoes ($120) you'll experience a level of comfort and fit that you've never had with another pair of running shoes. They're designed to have a completely-seamless interior, from the one-piece heel cup, to the ultrasonically welded components, and the form-fitting construction. And of course they feature the same moisture-wicking technology that you expect from Under Armour, thanks to chafe-free 4D Foam. With a perforated upper for ventilation and an almost-unnoticeable six ounce weight, you'll be able to run for miles without so much as thinking of your shoes.
While wearable devices may still feel like the stuff of science fiction, they are very much a reality — as evidenced by the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch ($300). This watch does so much more than simply tell time, thanks to its ability to pair with any Samsung Galaxy device. For example, it will discreetly notify you of a new text message, let you preview its contents, and then instantly open it on your larger device. Other powerful features include the ability to interact with music, letting you browse, pause, play, skip, or adjust volume. A built-in microphone, bluetooth connectivity, a video and still camera, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a pedometer further extend the usefulness of this handy watch. Available in October.
Control freaks, take notice — the Urwerk EMC Watch ($TBA) gives you more authority over the functionality of your timepiece than any watch before it. With only the touch of a button, you can access the timing rate of your watch, allowing you to fine-tune the way it tells time. Because conditions like position, temperature, and shock affect the timing regularity of your watch, having this information gives you the control you need to adjust your timing rate to suit any situation. Made from titanium and steel, with a satin finish and sapphire crystal, this watch is made to last — while a power reserve of 80 hours will keep it going for days.

While it isn't a blazer in the truest sense — you're not going to be wearing it to formal business meetings anytime soon — the Levi's Packable Blazer ($180) can certainly serve as the outer layer of an above-casual outfit in a pinch. Made from quilted nylon, this jacket is designed for travel, making it easy to stuff into a bag, backpack, or rucksack, and also features long sleeves, a regular fit, and side-flap pockets that make it just that much dressier than a standard rain jacket or hoodie. Available in a versatile liquorice colorway that should look good with nearly anything.

Whether you're averse to wearing things on your wrist, or you're just looking for an interesting way to start a conversation at parties, the Ring Clock ($185) is the timepiece for you. Made from surgical-grade, allergy-free stainless steel, this ring shows the time using either blue or orange LEDs when you spin its face. Its thin battery charges wirelessly by placing it on the included dock, and will last for up to one week of average use. Its water-resistant exterior will also shed the odd splash or water drop, so you won't have to worry the next time you venture out into the rain.

The Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel Watch ($10,000) — the first ever watch to accompany a man into space — has received a 1,000-piece limited edition update. The case comes in black steel with a highly-resistant carbon-based coating, with accompanying black counters and dials. An AR-coated sapphire crystal gives it water-resistance down to three atmospheres. It features a black rubber strap, Swiss hand-wind movement with a power reserve of 70 hours, red accents on its face, and a case back with the Aurora Seven mission insignia (paying homage to its original space flight).
Just because you've seen Walter White sporting his favorite pair of tighty whities, doesn't mean your special someone wants to see you in a pair of your own — upgrade your base layer with Richer Poorer Underwear ($24). These boxer briefs, just launched by the longtime sock maker, are made from the ideal blend of cotton and spandex, so they breathe where they should while still giving you the support you expect from a pair of briefs. Available in a range of black and white prints (as well as a few solid options), you'll be sure not to embarrass yourself the next time you drop trowel.
Okay, so perhaps it's a bit of a paradox to have a fabric that's designed to be easily spotted and blend in with its surroundings — but that doesn't mean you should like these Chrome Reflective Camo Bags ($95-$170) any less. They come in three choices of camo (a black urban camo, a tan desert camo, and a green wilderness camo), and feature glass-bead-woven fabric that reflects light up to 100 feet away. They are waterproof, welded, and durable enough to withstand a serious fall, making them a great choice if you get to and from work on two wheels.
Warning. Numb fingertips are in your future.
