Ski Watch : Timex Expedition WS4

Timex Expedition WS4

The new Timex Expedition WS4 is a lot of watch: altimeter, barometer, thermometer, chronograph, alarm and compass. It even tells time! It's also unapologetically macho which not venturing too far into the land of overwrought wrist weights.

Its got the standard stuff you'd expect for other Timex sport watches, making it water resistant to 50 meters and lit completely by Indiglo. The default strap is rubber, but it can also be mounted to a fabric strap so it can be worn on the outside of heavy gear.

Hanging out with Pow Gloves


When I got the phone call from Kaiser that I should stop by Pow while in Seattle, I was excited to check it out.  I’ve rocked the shockers since they came out and really like the humor and style behind Pows gloves. With the upcoming 08-09 models coming out in stores, I hope people will love them as much as I do. We need more mustachios, high 5’s and shockers in the world.
When I arrived, I met with Dustin who is the founder/CEO of Pow Gloves and Henry the multi-tasking intern. Kaiser who is the marketing man was picking up food with some athlete prospects. Across the street from Pow happens to be a very good place to get a sandwich and I got lucky to be able to taste some that Kaiser brought back.....
