Retro Style
Perhaps it was kismet that two icons of style—Dior and Vespa—were both founded in 1946. To commemorate their legacies, the brands collaborated on the June 2020 launch of the Vespa 946 Christian Dior scooter. Designed by Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri, the limited-edition cycle is made in Italy. A matching helmet and top case complete the ensemble, naturellement. Available at Dior boutiques in 2021. Price to be announced. dior.com

On the Greens
Garmin’s Approach S60 GPS golf watch lets users review and analyze every shot they play. It also enables them to compete in weekly leaderboards on any golf course via the Garmin Golf app. Even if travel isn’t possible, users can plot their next golf getaway by virtually exploring the watch’s preloaded maps of 40,000 courses around the world. From $399. garmin.com

Clean Sweep
Cleaning in the age of covid calls for back-up. Ecovacs’ new Deebot Ozmo T8 AIVI brings harried users a robot that vacuums, mops and even monitors the home. Employing laser mapping and navigation technology, it automatically detects carpets, putting the mop function on hold; a live video stream lets owners keep an eye on the homefront while they’re away. A lithium ion battery provides three-plus hours of use. $799. ecovacs.com
