This story is part of Select's New & Notable column, where we highlight our favorite product launches, major sales, what we're buying and some of our latest recommendations and advice.

This week, we’ve highlighted Sony’s newest VR gaming headset, Great Jones’ first glassware collection, Outdoor Voices’ new outdoor line and more.

New this week

  1. Sony released the PlayStation VR 2, a virtual reality headset made for gaming on the PlayStation 5. The original PS VR released in 2016, and was one of the first VR headsets made for a gaming console instead of a PC. The new PS VR 2 offers many improvements to the original, including new Sense controllers, an HDR OLED screen, built-in earbuds and more.
  2. Great Jones released their first ever glassware collection with three products: the Beyond Measure measuring cups, available in two cup and four cup sizing and the Spout oil drizzler. All the new glassware is made with colorful borosilicate glass and is dishwasher safe.
  3. Tempo, one of our favorite smart home gyms brands, launched the Tempo Core Starter pack. The bundle includes 50 lbs of adjustable dumbbells with smart weight plates and a smartphone dock that connects to your TV via HDMI. You can follow along to one of Tempo’s workouts on your tv screen while your phone tracks your movements and offers feedback. Like most smart gym equipment, the Tempo requires a membership to use ($39 a month). The Tempo Move offers even more weights and a storage cabinet, and the Tempo Studio offers everything plus a large 42-inch touchscreen display on top of the storage cabinet.
  4. Athleisure brand Outdoor Voices launched their new 2023 OV Outdoors line of clothing, including cargo pants, shorts, pullovers, tank tops and more. The lineup features many bright colorways and largely nylon and cotton fabrics.

What we bought this week

“I tweeze my eyebrows rather than wax them, but I have a few rogue, very fine blond hairs under my brows that are hard to grab with the tweezer. So when I saw this battery-powered, pen-sized trimmer and it was less than $20, I figured I'd give it a try. It's not a super powerful trimmer, so it took several swipes to cut most of the little hairs. And I can't imagine trying to shape my brows with it, since I didn't find it to be very precise. But for what I need, it worked!” - Leah Ginsberg, Managing Editor

"I bought this wallet from Leatherology for my and my fiancé's anniversary this month — it's great quality and the perfect size (not big and bulky, but has enough space to fit all of his essentials). I also got it personalized with his initials to make it more sentimental.” - Mili Godio, Updates Editor
