Why we like it

With the Garmin Venu 2, you’ll feel fully in control of your health and well-being. This smart fitness watch gives users detailed insight into their energy levels, sleep quality, fitness age, stress, and overall health snapshot. You can use it to track workouts from HIIT to golf and take advantage of Garmin Coach to help you train for an upcoming running event. This watch functions kind of like an Apple Watch, since it also notifies you of texts/calls, boasts safety features like incident detection, and, with Garmin Pay, allows you to tap it to contactless payment devices in lieu of a physical card. Depending on how you use your watch, the Garmin has a battery life of up to 11 days on a full charge, and you can wear your personality on your wrist (literally) with its customizable watch faces.

The Patagonia Granite Crest Jacket has a three-layer waterproof barrier that makes it the definition of weather-resistant apparel. Its fabric is also partially made of recycled fishing nets, which demonstrates just how deeply REI cares about nature conservation. The jacket has a hood with a laminated visor that can easily fit over a helmet, in case you plan to wear it while biking. It also flaunts hand-warming pockets and can completely fold inside of its left chest pocket. Talk about style, comfort, and protection in one lightweight clothing item.
