Garmin Forerunner 245 Music


REI, Moosejaw, Backcountry

Senior associate reviews editor Adrienne So considers Garmin’s Forerunner series the best smartwatches for runners in her guide to the best fitness trackers. The Forerunner 245 HR has built-in GPS for tracking your runs, and the battery will last for up to seven days.

Target, Amazon

Garmin’s relatively new Venu Sq edged out the long-reigning champ—the Fitbit Versa—as our recommended upper-entry-level fitness tracker in the $200 part of the market. It scored an 8/10 and snagged a WIRED Recommends award for its rich feature list, including incident detection, sleep tracking, and blood oxygen monitoring.

Bikes and Bike Accessories

Biking can be gear-intensive, especially if you use your machine as a commuter or an errand-runner. Check out our guides to the Best Bike Locks, Best Bike Accessories, and Best Ebikes.

Propella 7-Speed (V4) Electric Bike

Propella Store

The Propella is my favorite budget ebike of all those I’ve tested at WIRED. The components are quality, the bike weighs a svelte 37 pounds—that’s light for an ebike—and its looks don’t scream “ebike.” Associate reviews editor Parker Hall awarded it an 8/10 and a WIRED Recommends award in his review of the very similar V3.2 model last year.

Wing Ebike Store

I gave the more expensive Freedom X model a 7/10 in my review for its good looks, stronger-than-typical acceleration, and low 39-pound weight. The Freedom 2 has all those things, but without the so-so torque sensor and integrated LCD display. They’re both good models, but between the two I recommend you save $200 and go for the Freedom 2.

REI, Nutcase

The Street is a sharp-looking helmet for those who don’t want to look like a weekend racer. Many of Nutcase’s helmets now come with MIPS (multi-directional impact system). It’s a liner inside the helmet that allows some rotation to absorb energy and reduce the risk of rotational brain injuries. The Nutcase Vio is also $120 ($30 off). It has 360 degrees of LED light coverage for those of you who don’t have (or want) to mount bike headlamps and taillamps.

Arkel has a full range of bags that mount to pannier racks, from the laptop-carrying Commuter to the grocery-getter Shopper. All of them utilize Arkel’s excellent attachment system that keeps the bag from shifting and flopping around during rides. These Canadian-made bags are pricey, so take advantage of this rare sale.

Camping and Hiking Deals

Swing by our wide range of hiking and camping guides, such as All the Gear You Need to Start Hiking, Best Camp Stoves, Best Tents, and a Gift Guide for Outdoorsy People.

Solo Stove Bonfire

Bed Bath & Beyond

Towering chunks of wood on a bonfire are a lot of fun, but finding a lot of dry wood takes a serious time commitment. The Solo Stove requires less wood than an open bonfire and burns more completely, and it lets fewer sparks go astray, which is an important consideration if you’re setting it up in a backyard or a wildfire-prone campsite. Associate reviews editor Parker Hall fell in love with the larger Yukon model.

Backcountry, Moosejaw

Canister stoves might have the market corned on ease of use, but liquid-fuel white gas stoves like the WhisperLite offer the most versatility, especially internationally, where isobutane canisters are less available. The WhisperLite is a quieter (but not super quiet) version of MSR’s venerable, dependable camp stove.


Titanium is both a stalwart and, because of its often high price, a punchline in the hiking community. For around $50, though, this deal on MSR’s Titan Kettle brings lightweight cooking equipment within the range of slightly cheaper (but heavier) steel. The Titan Kettle is a wee bit thicker and sturdier than the (also fantastic) competitors Evernew and Toaks.
