As the list of AI-powered apps and features continues to grow, Google Meet’s newest offering may be one of the most exciting. Entitled ‘Duet AI,’ the feature is designed to run within Google Meet and can take notes for attendees. To use, simply click ‘take notes for me’ and the app will produce a summary — and action items — from what’s discussed in the meeting. If you’re late to the call, it can give you a mid-meeting summary of what you missed. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed after a call, the program can provide a full summary of what was covered, which you can save as a document in Drive. Best of all, Duet can even attend meetings on your behalf. Google has announced that the feature is available now, and users can try the feature with a no-cost trial.

Today we’re taking a look at the AquisPro 4000m, Vân Vân and a collab between Blundstone and L.L.Bean. This is Today in Gear.

The new timepiece is the most water-resistant dive watch Oris has ever created. Equipped with a 49.5mm titanium case, the watch can withstand pressures up to 400 bar — which means it boasts 4,000 meters of water resistance. It also features the brand’s Rotation Safety System bezel, which was designed in collaboration with professional divers to ensure the bezel can lock in place. Powered by the Oris Caliber 400, the AquisPro 4000m ($6,200) is finished with a striking blue gradient dial adorned with a wave pattern and blue ceramic bezel insert.


The NYC-based importer specializes in providing single-origin Vietnamese herbs and spices sourced from small farmers and producers from across Vietnam. With most products retailing from $8 – $10 its prices are affordable, yet the quality remains high. The brand offers bold, recognizable flavors and spices like chili flakes and minced garlic plus specialty offerings like Sparrow Ginger ($8) and Delta Lemongrass ($8). Explore the full collection at the link below, or bring home a full bundle for just $53.


To kick off its first fall drop, Todd Snyder Classics just released a long list of great button ups, jackets, pants and cozy office styles. Fans can find everything from the perfect Oxford Button Up ($148) to gorgeous suede jackets and comfortable homespun tees. Of course, if you want to really level up, the collection also includes a lineup of Italian cotton silk polos ($198) and a fantastic Italian leather jacket.


The Nue Co is known for creating smart supplements and products steeped in its own philosophy of ‘connected health.’ Now the brand has bundled a handful of powerful products into its new Hair Heroes Set ($112). The full bundle includes the ‘Supa_Thick’ shampoo, conditioner and serum — plus the brand’s ‘Growth Phase’ supplements. Powered by everything from red algae to a patented probiotic technology, this set makes it easy to start, and stick to, a routine.


This collab resulted in a timeless piece: The Blundstone x L.L.Bean Chelsea Boot ($220). Designed with sturdy pull tabs and a premium leather upper, the boots are finished with an ultra-soft leather lining and elastic panels made with an L.L.Bean-inspired buffalo plaid. Across the boot, twin-needle reinforced stitching ensures lasting durability. Between the two brands, the team was able to tap into 260 years of legendary bootmaking, so you know this release is built to last.
