What We Want This Week

Timberland Heritage Ecoriginal Dryvent Parka

It’s time for that wonderful dilemma we have every year – how to stay comfy, warmth, functional without looking like you’re ready to go on an Antarctic hike. Timberland’s new Heritage Ecoriginal Dryvent parka is the one and only option you need this AW. The parka offers not one, but two, waterproofing technologies: The DryVent (100% recycled plastic) finish provides breathable protection from rain and wind, while TimberDry creates a waterproof membrane as an eco-conscious second layer of protection. Both the membrane of the parka and the main ReBOTL fabric are made with at least 50% recycled plastic. £410.00, Available Timberland.co.uk


Packed with five-sensor functions the GBD-H1000 has an optical sensor that can measure heart rate by detecting the blood flow under the skin, a triple sensor that measures altitude/barometric pressure, compass bearing, and temperature, as well as an acceleration sensor that measures step count and distance traveled and even has GPS functionality. By analyzing the measured data, the watch can display an indicator of cardiorespiratory capacity and by connecting the watch with a dedicated app on a smartphone, the user can manage measurement data history such as calories burned and logged travel. £379.00, Available G-shock.co.uk

Surf Lakes Session, Australia

Surf Lakes is basically a huge pool in Australia and it generates 5 different types of waves for surfers. Equipped with a huge contraption that creates waves in concentric circles that then radiate outwards, the pool has been designed to potentially produce over 2,000 waves per hour, suitable for all skill levels and surf craft. It delivers 5 levels of perfectly natural looking waves all at the same time, from beginner to pro (a heavy slab, suitable for high level surfers and bodyboarders) on 10 separate breaks around the pool. It mimics the ocean ground swells, with waves coming in sets of two to six, and break over specially shaped reefs. Visit Surf-lakes.com.au

Ring Always Home Camera

Ring (makers of the popular video doorbells) has announced a very unique new security product that will take home security to the next level, a fully autonomous drone that flies around inside your house…Yes you just read that right. The Ring Always Home Cam flies to pre-chosen locations, or when it detects a disturbance, so you can easily check on your home. When it detects a break-in, the flying camera un-docks from its station and flies to the intruder, capturing their face, and sending a live video feed right to your smartphone. It can also be used to check on things as simple as if the ovens been left on or a door left open. Once the drones finished flying, the Always Home Cam returns to its dock to charge its battery. Home security will never be the same again.
