Part percussion device, part foam roller, the Wave is ideal for general recovery from training or muscle relaxation. For more affordable Theragun products designed to locate specific areas, the $ 59 Solo ($ 20 off) or the $ 79 Duo ($ 20 off) might be better options. Learn more about them here.

As for the price, the SKG F5 is a fantastic massager that offers heat as well as percussion therapy. There are three attachments and three intensity levels. It’s on sale all the time, but we haven’t seen it sell for less than that.
The Elite D9 arguably has too many intensity levels and accessories, but for those who really want to customize day-to-day muscle therapy, this may be the best choice. This award is the best WIRED has tracked since last April.
Amazon, Best buy
Stop slouching! Did that make you sit up straight? Well, this device (8/10, WIRED recommends) might actually help improve your posture. It sticks to your back via an adhesive strip (or collar) and it vibrates when your back reaches a specific angle that you calibrate in the companion app (much like a shock tape, minus the shocking part). WIRED critic Medea Giordano says it’s the only device that made her think about her posture even when she’s not wearing it.

Capable of delivering up to 12 measurements of your body, the Eufy Smart Scale C1 is featured in our best guide to smart scales. You have to use the EufyLife app and connect your phone via Bluetooth if you want more than just a weight reading, but it’s easy to set up. It also boasts a sleek design and operates quickly compared to other scales we have tested.
Bicycles and bicycle accessories
Biking can take a lot of equipment, especially if you use your machine as a commuter or a runner. Check out our guides on the best bike locks, the best bike accessories, and the best electric bikes.
The Propella is my favorite economy e-bike of all I’ve tested at WIRED. The components are quality, the bike weighs 37 pounds, it’s light for an e-bike, and its look doesn’t scream “ebike”. Associate Critics Editor Parker Hall gave it an 8/10 and a WIRED Recommends award in his review of the very similar V3.2 model last year.
I gave the more expensive Freedom X model a 7/10 in my review for its good looks, stronger than normal acceleration, and low weight of 39 pounds. The Freedom 2 has all of these things minus the average torque sensor and built-in LCD screen. They’re both good models, but in between, I’d recommend saving $ 200 and going for the Freedom 2.
The Lectric XP is the best affordable electric bike. When we reviewed the original (7/10, WIRED recommends), we praised its smooth ride and solid lineup. The lower-priced 2.0 has an even smoother ride, wider handlebars and generally improved comfort, along with built-in water resistance. This bike is heavy, but the deal is excellent, especially since it includes a high-end headlight, lock, and a few other accessories.
The Apollo Ghost (8/10, WIRED recommends) typically costs $ 1,699, so this deal gets you a free Apollo Air. Critics Editor Julian Chokkattu loves the Ghost for its speed and power. The Air Pro won’t go as fast and suffers from very limited range, but it’s still a solid entry-level electric scooter. The Apollo Ghost is also reduced on its own for $ 1,399 ($ 200 off).
REI (some colors cost $ 60), crazy
The Street is a stylish helmet for those who don’t want to look like a weekend runner. Many Nutcase helmets are now equipped with MIPS (multidirectional impact system). It’s a liner inside the helmet that allows for some rotation to absorb energy and reduce the risk of rotational brain damage. 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 don’t want to) fit bike headlights and taillights.
Arkel offers a full line of bags that mount on luggage racks, from Commuter carrying a laptop to the Grocery Shopper. All use Arkel’s excellent attachment system which prevents the bag from shifting and tipping during journeys. These made in Canada bags are expensive, so take advantage of this rare sale.

Large chunks of wood on a bonfire are great fun, but finding lots of seasoned wood takes a serious time commitment. The Solo Smokeless Stove requires less wood than an open campfire and burns more completely, and it leaves fewer sparks to get lost, which is an important consideration if you are installing it in a backyard or outdoor setting. wooded campsite. Associate Critics Editor Parker Hall has fallen in love with Yukon’s tallest model.
Solo, Bath in bed and beyond ($ 195)
This smaller, less expensive model offers the same well-contained fireplace experience as the Solo Yukon (7/10, WIRED Review), just smaller. It’s perfect for toasting marshmallows after a good barbecue.
KING, Amazon, biolite
It’s not just a home. It is also a grill. But it’s not just a grill either! It can charge your phone. And it has a fan that you can control with an app on your phone using a bluetooth connection. This model made our best portable grills. We reviewed the previous version and found it to be lightweight, portable, and easy to clean.
Moosejaw, Backcountry ($ 85)
Cartridge stoves may have conquered the market in ease of use, but liquid fuel white gas stoves like the WhisperLite offer the most versatility, especially internationally where isobutane cartridges are less available. The WhisperLite is a quieter (but not super quiet) version of the venerable and reliable MSR camping stove.
You can get a wide range of bottles, tumblers and travel mugs at Hydro Flask. The brand shows up in our best reusable water bottles and best travel mug guides because they’re generally tough and won’t leak.
Titanium is both a mainstay and, due to its often high price, a punchline in the backpacking community. For around $ 50 though, this deal on MSR’s Titan kettle brings lightweight cooking equipment into the slightly cheaper (but heavier) steel range. The Titan kettle is a bit thicker and stronger than the (also fantastic) competitors Evernew and Toaks.
Strap in to rest on a day’s hike, take a nap between two trees in your backyard, or spend a night outdoors under the clear sky. This two-person nylon hammock weighs just 19 ounces, but it supports up to 400 combined pounds of cuddles. It is also a choice in our stress relief gift guide.
