BioLite FirePit+

In partnership with BioLite

Want to enjoy the warmth, smell, crackle and feel of a wood campfire without any of the suffocating smoke? Biolite’s FirePit+ is your smokeless solution. Their portable fire pit’s patented air flow system ensures hyper-efficient flames and clean combustion, so you don’t have to worry about it getting in your eyes or on your clothes. Designed for a variety of outdoor activities, their high-tech design allows you to cook dinner, roast marshmallows, or simply kick back and relax all at your own convenience.

Using either charcoal or wood for fuel, it has a durable enamel coating and larger perforations within the mesh, allowing a more radiant heat for those cooler nights. We also love that this versatile charcoal grill has four fan speeds to choose from, allowing you to control the size of the flames, and the removable grill is ideal for hibachi-style cooking. Best of all, the unit includes a rechargeable battery to operate the fan and a free app to control the fire pit via Bluetooth. – AU$446

Heritage meets innovation with the Seiko Prospex Speedtimer series, which brings vintage design into the current era.

Additional touch-ups such as a 39mm case diameter and curved sapphire glass were likewise applied in accordance with modern expectations.

Available in a variety of iterations, the Seiko Prospex Speedtimer features a 60-minute chronograph, 24-hour subdial, and touch-activated power reserve indicator. Combine that with a coloured aluminium bezel and you get a bona fide sporty stunner, which wears its functional layout like an aesthetic coat of armour. The watch is water-resistant to 10 bar, treated with Lumibrite, equipped with a hairline-and-smooth polished bracelet, and always ready for action. Are you?
