To arrive at this list of products, the Man of Many team went through hours and rigorous testing, implementation and analysis before culling it down to the very best. Over the last 12 months, we’ve worked on curated products that push boundaries and pioneer new fronts, across the automotive, fashion, lifestyle and technology verticals. Sure, we love getting the latest piece of kit in our hands, but being able to point out the benefits and shortfalls objectively is at the heart of what we do.

Our co-founder Frank Arthur went from one hole to the next, testing TAG Heuer’s latest Connected smartwatch with pro-golfer Dimitrios “Dimi” Papadatos, declaring the TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 a must-have for golfers. First and foremost is Automatic Swing Detection. Capable of guestimating your swing on the golf course, the Calibre E4 was incredibly accurate, with a prediction of between 270 and 275 for Papadatos’ first swing of 274. Supporting this is a range of additional features like 2D maps and 3D renderings of the ball’s trajectory, drive shot tracking, a stylish 18-hole inspired bezel and a built-in magnetic ball marker for convenience in its purest form.

Picked for our Man of Many’s Most Wanted List in February 2022, the TaylorMade Stealth Driver was described as “a golf club fit for a king” by Sam Mangioni. The Stealth Driver from TaylorMade is made of carbon (60 layers of carbon sheets, to be exact) rather than the reliable titanium we’ve become accustomed to on the golf course. A cutting-edge material that ushers in a new era of premium drivers by facilitating more significant energy transfer, perfect friction at impact, improved forgiveness (44% lighter than titanium), premium sound, and higher ball speeds across a wider area of the face.

Sadly, you’ll never look at your favourite pair of vintage racing shoes the same way after taking a few steps in the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% 2. Inspired by rocket ships, these prototype shoes are designed to help you reduce the time it takes you to complete tasks by maintaining the stability you need. In a heavenly running union, a thick, light support system combines comfort and speed to “deliver a snappy, propulsive sensation to launch you toward the finish line”.

Sure, it’s just a treadmill, but wait until you see its secret trick. Dubbed the world’s first treadmill with Double-fold technology, the King-Smith WalkingPad X21 is a full-sized treadmill that can fold away in an upright position. Collapsing into half the size, renters and small apartment owners will love the space-saving functionality of the WalkingPad X21, and that’s before we jump into its other incredible features. There’s a hidden LED digital display screen with an industrial aesthetic design and a one-touch operation panel on the handrail for seamless operation and control mid-stride. Android lovers will also love the X21 thanks to the NFC pairing for direct access to this high-tech treadmill. As for everyone else, the KS Fit app displays your time, speed, steps, and calories burned, allowing you to keep track of your workout history. Complimented by a detachable phone holder and an integrated luxury frame with a black spray paint finish, it’s no wonder it won the German Red Dot Award and the IF Design Award!
