It’s been a rare week of product discovery for us here, covering all ends of the product universe. From a compelling new seltzer that features a 1:1 dose of THC and CBD to an affordable new Timex boasting a key feature found on vintage military timepieces, to an “illegal” running shoe from Hoka, and the CD player to end all CD players, there’s plenty of new releases to catch up on over this weekend.


This Seltzer Lets You Take the Edge Off Without All of the Baggage of Beer

Just because cannabis drinks are everywhere these days doesn’t mean they’re all the same. WYNK seltzers stand apart from most by offering a 1:1 dose of THC and CBD to create a mood-shifting beverage that’s equal part calming and fun and lasts approximately 90 minutes. 

More importantly, the active ingredients of every WYNK seltzer are made entirely in-house and under strict quality control. Currently available in 7.5 oz and 12 oz cans in four flavors: Lime Twist, Juicy Mango, Black Cherry and Tangerine, you can score free shipping and $15 off your first Experience Pack by using code TRYWYNK at the link below. 


This Affordable Timex Has a Feature You Used to Only Find on Vintage Military Pilot’s Watches

One of the most complex complications that is associated with early military watches is the flyback chronograph, a complicated mechanism that allows one to instantly reset and restart a running chronograph with the press of a single pusher. 

Today, the flyback chrono is considered a high-end complication and is most frequently seen on five-figure watches from the likes of BreguetPatek Philippe and Zenith, with even the most affordable mechanical options from Longines costing over $4,000. That’s what makes Timex’s latest chronograph watch so special, as it features its own proprietary flyback complication and yet costs just $199.


Behold the Hot Rod of Coffee Grinders

The Zerno Z1 isn’t some set-it-and-forget-it off-the-shelf coffee grinder intended even for coffee enthusiasts looking for their daily fix. This is a machine unabashedly designed to let obsessive home brewers endlessly tinker with grind settings to their – likely palpitating – heart’s content in a quest to learn how various grinds result in different flavor outcomes. Although aesthetically, it’s no slouch, either. 

Made of machined aircraft-grade aluminum, stainless steel, and solid wood, it exudes precision and craftsmanship, befitting its advanced capabilities. 


Hoka’s Latest Running Shoe Has So Much Cushioning, It’s Technically “Illegal”

Hoka says it “threw out the rulebook” when creating the Skyward X, the brand’s latest mega-cushioned running shoe. It isn’t kidding. With a 48mm stack height, the Skyward X sprints right past the 40mm limit set by World Athletics, joining an exclusive club of so-called “illegal” running shoes that includes models such as the Adidas Adizero Prime X 2.0 (55mm) and New Balance Supercomp Trainer (47mm).


The First All-Electric Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen Arrives as a Serious Off-Roader

The first all-electric G-Class — which is formally dubbed the G 580 and not the EQG as predicted — arrives with the same familiar ladder frame chassis and iconic boxy silhouette, along with a number of new innovations designed specifically for pavement-free driving. 

Bang & Olufsen

Bang & Olufsen Makes a $55,000 Argument to Collect CDs Again. I’m Sold

A seminal piece of hi-fi gear from the late ’90s returns nearly two decades after its original release but not without a few thoughtful tweaks.
