If you survive to see your 160th birthday, you’ll celebrate, too. Swiss watchmaker Tissot is turning 160 and to make it special, they’ve created an anniversary timepiece. The Heritage Navigator Automatic is a remake of a model first made to commemorate their centenary back in 1953. Like all good designs, the styling of the classic chronometer looks just a good now as it did 50 years ago. Available November 2013.
Puma’s latest running shoe gimmick technology is called Mobium. It’s a finely tuned elasticized band built into the shoe’s outsole that ads extra bounce and stability exactly where and when your foot needs it most. The idea is that the shoe mimics the expansion & contraction of the tendons in your foot, enhancing your natural movements.
Adidas’ Boost cushioning technology is the secret ingredient in their new Energy Boost series running shoes. Boost is an ultralight, super high-rebound TPU foam used in the midsole that gives the shoes the most energy return of any running shoe on the market.
Two of Nike’s most potent proprietary materials: Flyknit & Lunarlon combine to make the virtually seamless Flyknit Lunar1+ one more amazingly light & and comfy runner in the Swoosh lineup. But don’t think it’s all float and no support: it’s also got Flywire in the upper for stability while overall minimalism of materials makes this model 80% less wasteful than the standard Nike runner. Available in February.
Following last year’s Jack Heuer 80th Birthday Carrera, the brand is now offering another chronograph bearing Jack’s name. Inspired by classic TH stopwatch designs of the 60s, the pushers and crown on this new model are positioned on the top of the case instead of on the side.

In a world that welcomed fur-lined Crocs and 50 different styles of “toe sneakers” with open arms, this bizarre new release from Reebok, called the ATV 19+ is sure to be a hit. Featuring a monster-truck style tread with 19 bulbous “nodes”, they’re designed to provide stability on uneven terrain, like trail running or maybe walking on the moon. While the response to the ATV 19+ from shoe fiends and experts is divided, Reebok finally made a shoe that got people talking. Available February 1.
Instead of guessing how you want your jeans to fit, Gustin brand arrived at their fit, features, and fabrics through crowd-sourcing.

It’s a handsome watch, and that’s a good thing because only a handful of Swiss scientists and maybe active-duty astronauts actually need a watch featuring a magnet-resistant movement. Omega’s latest innovation in timing technology makes the Seamaster Aqua Terra watch 15X more resistant to magnetic fields than the Rolex Milgauss. And what’s better than better than a Rolex?
If speed freak Usain Bolt can shatter world records in a pair of Pumas, you can be sure they’ll perform for your twice or thrice weekly roadwork.
