After buying a smartwatch, you immediately become wary of getting your wrist too close to walls and objects. That device is expensive, and you want to protect it. For those who need something less dainty, there’s the Mission smartwatch. Designed to withstand the elements, the smartwatch from Nixon is perfect to take surfing, skiing, or just out in the wild. The Mission is water resistant to 10ATM, is shock resistant, and is crafted with ultra-tough Corning Gorilla Glass. Not only can it take a beating, but it actually has features designed around those action sports—real-time surf conditions and an app to help you track your session on the slopes. Powered by Android Wear, the Nixon Mission is the smartwatch for the adventurous among us.

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
